Recently it has taken a lot of effort (internet problems) to get the message out,
and this has affected the quality of the contents of my message here in DietHobby.
Getting and keeping the system running has been using up most of my energy,
and it takes the rest of my energy just to deal with the practicalities of eating at maintenance level.
Frequently, I find that when I sit down to write about dieting and maintenance concepts to post here,
I'm coming up empty.
Actually, that's a concept in itself.
Something that happens to all of us.
Our lives get busy. We become absorbed in some individual problem,
involving our work, our family, our friends,
and our dieting and maintenance efforts get shoved to the side,
because there's only so much personal energy available to us
and we direct that energy toward our highest priorities.
The days, weeks, and months pass, and when there is a break between those Life Crises,
not only have we not lost weight, but we find that we are heavier and less fit than ever.
So, what's the answer?
Somehow, we need to shift our priorities.
We need to place more value on what we eat and how we exercise.
That's really what the concept "Lifestyle" means.
The way we nurture and care for ourselves and our food
needs to become a strong thread running through all of our lives.
We need to develop individual ways of dealing with food that become habit.
and allow habit to take over during those times when we are distracted by those Life Crisis situations.
There we have the individual question that each of us must answer for ourselves.
