Here is my question: Are you too comfortable? Have you hit a weight that you have been before? A weight that you are comfortable at. Too comfortable. A place that you could stay and hang out forever because you have been here before. So it feels like your norm.
My comfort zone was between the weights of 190-225 lbs. I had been here for most of my adult life. My adult friends knew this me. They thought I looked like myself again. I was comfortable to them and to myself again.
I could have ultimately hung out at this weight forever. Really. It felt right. Bouncing between a size 14 and 18W would have been easy for me. No one would have thought any less of me. Actually, some people probably would have been more comfortable, since that is the way they have always known me.
But, I wanted more.
I didn't have WLS to remain at a weight that I have been before. One that is still in the overweight catagory and not healthy.
So I pushed forward. Mainly through exercise.
And I have landed at 161. Believe me when I say, I KNOW I have to work to keep that weight on the scale from moving up. I have to eat right 90% of the time and exercise like a fool. But that is okay. I can live with that. But I will never be truly comfortable here. I will always have to remain vigilant about my weight.
So there lies the question for all of you: are you too comfortable right now? Maybe you need to keep better track of what you eat, exercise more or change up the routine, drink more water, etc. You may need to shake things up a bit so you aren't so comfortable anymore.
Change is never comfortable. NEVER. Especially, if you are like me and resist any form of change. Is it necessary? Yes. Great things come through change.
Think about it. Then find a way to shake things up.
