Welcome to spring! Horse show season is under way and bathing suit season is just around the corner. A winter of holiday feasting and reduced activity may have left you with a few souvenir pounds to help you to remember last season. I was recently asked if I think that counting calories is a good way to lose weight so I thought I’d share my thoughts on this popular technique.
I find myself wondering why we are focused so much on the cure and not on prevention. You see, all this effort and money is focusing on helping people after they have been diagnosed with a disease. Even all of the “early detection” techniques are focused on what to do after the diagnosis. Perhaps we’re closing the barn door after the horse has gotten out.
If you don’t know where you’re going, how will you know when you’re there? When working with coaching clients, I always ask them to set a goal for their sessions. It’s important for both of us to know what to focus on; otherwise we’re just chatting.
