Are you the type of person who always makes resolutions on New Year’s Day? If so, do you have the confidence to stick to it until the end of the year?
Around the end of last year, the doctor diagnosed my father with metabolic syndrome. He doesn’t look fat from outside, so he seemed very shocked. Since then, he has been on a diet. Reducing his weight is one of his resolutions.
Actually, it is said that metabolic syndrome can be a sign of a future disease, so people diagnosed with metabolic syndrome should take a measure to lead well-regulated life with healthy food and moderate exercise To avoid increasing the budged for health care, the city office is sincerely addressing the issue to reduce the number of people with metabolic syndrome by holding some consulting events.
My father went to this event and got some advice from a consultant in many aspects including food and exercise. From the following day, he decided to record his weight every morning. It seems that visualizing the number itself
becomes a source of motivation. In fact, he said he could resist himself all day after he saw an unexpectedly heavy weight in the morning. As a result, he succeeded in reducing his weight by 3 kilograms. This has been a great success!
I wanted to try this “recording diet” as soon as I heard of his success, but I already had difficulty making a habit of taking off my clothes and measuring my weight in the morning in the first place. Do you think it is because the scale is in a cold place or am I just lazy?
