Chicken or the Egg?

Is losing weight about goals or actions?

I am sometimes feel that behavior change is more important than setting a goal. If you do things differently the results will change. And just starring at the result won’t make it happen.

For example: I want to be wealthy as a goal. So what? How about, I’m going to save 10% of my income every check.

Guess which one works?

For example, I want to lose 10 pounds.  So what?!  How about: I’m going to exercise 5 mornings a week and follow a paleo eating style for the next week.

For me it is about:

  • Buying the right foods – skipping by the stuff that is “trouble” the pastry, pizza, fries etc. Ordering a salad with lean meat and dressing on the side.
  • Cooking the right foods – adding in more vegetables, cutting back on carbs, drinking lots of water
  • Portion control – Cutting back on seconds
  • Moving more – taking the farthest spot in the parking lot or the stairs instead of the elevator.
