Is your original plan a handoff to the running back?

Or are you going to pass to the wide receiver?

You need to have multiple plans based on what the defenders are doing. So, what happens when your weight loss plan gets sacked?

MYST 129: Are You Tripolar?

MYST 128: The Big Picture

My weight loss goal is to lose 1 pound per week. That means that my daily calorie budget from LoseIt has a built-in deficit of 500 calories. On Thanksgiving, I ate more than 1300 calories OVER that budget, and yet 3 days later, my scale shows that I’ve lose 0.6 pounds in the past 7 days.

I ate like a king and am still making progress toward my goal. How is that possible? It’s because I look at the big picture. Do you?

MYST 126: Why We Become Overweight

Being overweight–obese–fat–is caused by eating more calories than we burn. But that is a bit simplistic. There are many more factors that make our problem more difficult to fight. In this episode, part 1 of a 2 part show, we talk about the factors beyond the dinner plate that make our troubles worse. Part 2 will be a discussion of how to reduce the effect of these factors.

Three common concepts that can stall progress.
