Thoughts on the week

“There’s no failure only feedback”, Richard Bandler co-creator of Neuro Linguistic Programming.

This week has been a failure and I’m so depressed that I’m going to stop this weight loss regime, it doesn’t work! This is a joke, right! It is kind of a joke because I’m losing weight and I’m doing it this way. There are a few factors that after looking at my records, there are a couple things that may have caused lack of loss.

  1. Starting the weights. Last week I started weight training after a couple of years of not doing it and after measuring this it may have been a cause of my muscles getting denser. While this may be a possibility, I think it’s unlikely.
  2. My meals were bigger than normal. Looking back at my records I’ve noticed that some of my meals were around 600 grams and this may be a cause for the lack of weight loss.
  3. Our cheat day was the day before the weigh in. On Saturday we went out for a bit of a blow out and we both went for it at a Chinese all you can eat buffet. Some of the dishes were sweet and maybe this interfered with the loss of weight.

How is any of this useful?

what’s the point?

The whole reason for doing this regime is to be able to track what’s going on with the food that we’re eating. You may think its pointless recording everything that I eat but in reality, it allows us to make vital changes to achieve the goal that has been set.

Your records rule

We record everything because we can look back and check where it’s gone wrong this week or over a longer period if necessary. With the list above these are just pointers but I’m able to check back and say to myself, “this can be changed or that can be altered”.

If it’s recorded we notice it

Sometimes we get carried away and rely on things that may have been changed slightly, which we don’t notice. If it’s recorded, we notice it! In effect this strategy is what governments do with us. It’s called a catalogue and if you want to make changes, be efficient, then I suggest you do the same. It’s time consuming but worth it!

Get back on

I could curl up in to a ball and tell my self it’s rubbish and it doesn’t work. The system works and the proof is in the images posted previously over the last six weeks. Just because I’ve fallen off the wagon doesn’t mean that I’m incapable of picking my self up running after that same wagon and jumping back on.

Don’t be despondent

So all this blip means is that we can make changes and see the results next week. If the changes made have worked? Don’t be despondent there will always be things in life that happen and all we can do is learn from them and overcome.

There is no failure only feedback!
