Tip of the day:
With EVERY EVERY EVERY change I've made (and will make) I always ask myself "Is this something I can do for the REST of my life?" If the answer is yes I move on, if not I figure out another road to take. Now, my loss has been really slow because of this, but I know when I get to my goal, I will know how to stay there......

I've been thinking a lot about my tip of the day today. I KNOW deep down I will NEVER be 311 pounds again because the changes I have made are permanent ones. Seems like a lot of people are struggling with what their next steps should be, including myself. Of' course we want the next steps we take to be as effortless as possible. We all want that next effortless step we take to render huge results. Lowering calories, raising calories, lowering fat, raising fat, lowering carbs, very low carbs, no carbs, liquid fast, totally sweet free, cleanses, fasting or Intermittent fasting?

What will it be? Did you ask yourself the question above? Can you make these changes for the REST of your life?

Tell me what your next step is going to be? How did you come to that decision? What changes have you made that are permanent ones?

NewVision,
I was intrigued with your question! When weight loss is so SLOW, it's very frustrating!!! Then we start searching for solutions, you're right.
I think, for me, giving my plan at least 3 months is a good idea. By then, I'd definitely know if it's gonna make me lose weight or not, right? I've never given it that long. THEN I can do minor tweaking-but always something that I could live with forever if it works. You are brilliant!! ha. I guess this is exactly what Jimmy does already, but it's very helpful for you to spell it out.
Thanks! I've given myself all of 2009 to lose the weight, so I'll still have time after 3 months goes by. My biggest thing is to not go on a binge and gain back what little I've lost.

Wow, great post! I can't answer the question right now but I really hope to do that soon. :)

Having said that, I don't think there's anything I don't rotate every few years - I change my eating, I change my house, my job, my transport, my clothing style, my hair, my going out places and now that I think about it, I rotate which friends I see most often too.

I kinda like it, it's like a little project for me to work on.

If you have found something you can do for the rest of your life, what do you direct your attentions to instead?

You are so right. I have always felt that it was useless to make changes if I didn't feel that the changes could be permanent ones.
