It’s all on you

HWM (Malaysia) - - FEATURE -

Set­ting a re­al­is­tic tar­get and stick­ing to the plan is im­por­tant. No fancy calo­rie track­ing app, smart­watch, weigh­ing scale, or gym in­struc­tor can help you if you are un­will­ing to make a life­style change or raise the white flag the in­stance the go­ing gets tough. Not will­ing to give up that weekly buf­fet habit even though you no­tice you can’t walk for five min­utes with­out pant­ing? It’s time to take stock of your pri­or­i­ties.

Rec­og­nize too that stay­ing fit and healthy is for your own good. Not be­cause I said so, or be­cause you want to look good in other peo­ple’s eyes. If any­thing, it should be for the peo­ple you love; such as be­ing able to live long and healthy to see your kids grow up.

Fi­nally, there are no short­cuts to los­ing weight. Eat and ex­er­cise prop­erly and con­sis­tently is the only method. And un­less you’ve an un­der­ly­ing med­i­cal con­di­tion, it’s also the only sure-fire method.
