Losing weight is fun!!! Really! It has to be--there are no other options. If you can't sustain something forever, it will never last. I can sustain having fun forever, but I can't sustain counting calories, measuring my food, starving myself then binging, doing all the things I hate at the gym, pushing my body in a way that bores me, and self-loathing my body in the mirror. Can you relate to any of these?
Weight lose HAS to be fun and pleasurable or you will never succeed in the long run. What activities did you enjoy as a kid? Do it! I am seriously wimpy at the gym (I last 15 minutes), but I can play 5 hours of beach volleyball. If you love the gym, that's great. If you don't, what sport, activity, or dance do you enjoy?
Another way to really succeed at weight lose is to be happy....having fun really is THE key. Not only does it reduce emotional eating, but it's a physiological response. When happy and relax, we turn on our parasympathetic system and our digestion/metabolism functions much more efficiently.
