When Losing Weight Looks Impossible — A Bagpipe and Unicycle Perspective

YouTube Preview Image

Sometimes staying on a healthy eating and exercise plan seems a lot like this.  It takes a lot of coordinating and skill!  But don’t make it too hard on yourself. I don’t imagine this person took his (her?) first bagpipe lesson while trying to learn to ride a unicycle.  It probably took a long while to be able to put all these skills together. Quit beating yourself up for not being able to accomplish everything at once.  If you have to learn one thing at a time, that’s okay.    If you establish one healthy habit you are on your way to a healthier, more vibrant life. When you have that down, you can tackle the next thing on the list.  One step at a time. Make sure you are heading in the right direction and making a serious effort.  Before you know it you will be playing the bagpipes on a unicycle — or the health equivalent of that feat!

Eating to live and living for Christ,

haha, I’m leaning towards a guy, but he does have pretty skinny legs and the kilt/skirt doesn’t help any.

I read new habits take app. 8 weeks to develop. Key is one day at a time and like you said, one skill at a time. I am HORRIBLE at diving in head first trying to take on multiple feats at a time and then getting overwhelmed and dropping all the balls. Thanks for the reminder.
