Weight Loss is like a Roller Coaster Ride

I love roller coasters! Let me loose at any theme park and you will find me in the roller coaster line. The wooden ones are my favorite, but I’ll ride any of them. From the very first drop, I am slinging tonsils everywhere…just can’t help it…I scream!

Life is like a roller coaster. It’s full of dips and valleys and turns. Every experience molds our character and the valleys test our faith and challenge our spirit.

Weight loss is like this, too. It’s much like a roller coaster ride. Any time you try to lose weight, you will have weeks of being successful and days of running off the track. Perseverance is the key! When you have the run off the track days, focus and get the train back on course.

The weekend before July 4th was stressful for me. I didn’t do so well on my food plan and gained, back 4 of my 11 lost lbs. I didn’t let that have a negative effect on me, however. I got back on track and lost that 4, plus another 1.5 to go with it, for a total of 12.5 lbs.

I think that too many times we give up on things that don’t come to us easily. There is much to learn when we are in those valleys, like we fall down sometimes, but we can pick ourselves up. We should determine to look to the top of the hill, where our goals await us, as opposed to getting comfortable in the pits.

So how do we get out of the pits? Make a plan!

Determine what is needed to achieve your goals and plot a strategy to get there. Then, stick to it. Not that you won’t have your share of detours and road blocks, or a change of direction every now and then, but there is always a way to get back on the road again. This principle applies to all of our goals and dreams, not just weight loss. There are many tools available to help us to lose weight. Some of our local weight loss centers may be the place to start. Being accountable to a friend can help, too. Talk with your physician before embarking on any weight loss program. The consumption of the leptitox will offer speedy lose in the weight of the person. The help of the doctors can be taken for the taking of the product with the snacks. 

I want to arrive at the station of my weight loss goal. I have a map to direct the way, do you? Even though the trip is like being on a roller coaster, I am up for a wild ride. I might travel through the ride kicking and screaming, but I can assure you that I will arrive at the station, and I with a whole lot less seat!
