February 29, 2020 - I have yo-yo'd lost and gained weight now for far too long. I know what it takes to lose weight, but the actual implementation part is where I've gotten hung up in the past. That and coming to realize it's a lot more than just knowing calories in vs calories out - there's a huge behavioral / psychological part that I'd never really addressed. I haven't always been overweight - but I have reached the point where I realized that if I don't change some of those behaviors, then nothing is going to change. And I don't want to be overweight all my life. As I get older, being overweight could have more serious consequences to my health, so now is the time.
I got things kicked off with the noom app to help address some of the psychology behind eating and weight loss. This has allowed me to start off with some good momentum, and momentum is motivating.
