Gain Weight but Still Happy
One of my 2018 The New Me Resolution is to stay slim and healthy. Slim in a way that is back to my normal weight based on my height and of course now I am overweight. In order for me to know my progress, I actually track my weight every end of the Sunday night. I have a table with weeks where I write my weight down. From this then I can know whether my strategy is working or not, if not then I will need to change it. See it, very important to track our progress in everything we do. Where are we know and where are we yesterday.
On Sunday when I measure my weight and it was 87kg which is added 0.5 kg compare to previous week of 86.5kg 😕
How can I response to it? There are two ways that I could have respond.
OMG, I have gain weight. I have been exercised 30 mins daily, and I still gain weight. It is not working, why I have to so difficult in controlling my food and sweat whole body everyday on treadmill. I am not going to make it. Haiz.
Wow, I only gained 0.5 kg even thought over the weekend I have overeat with carbs. Compare to my 1st and 2nd week where I overeat, I gained 1 kg for each week and now I only gained 0.5 kg. Yes, it is 50% improvement. 😛 And this is how reframing work by changing the meaning of the event to more empowering.
Which way do you want to respond to any event?
