Do any of you remember this show from the 90’s?
I loved this show as a kid, I now need to waste a day and rewatch this show. The adventures inside of a computer as programs worked to mend and defend the city aka “mainframe” from Megabyte and Hexadecimal, two viruses bent on infecting the world.
The concept of Reboot can become applicable to our own lives. The “mainframe” is our lives, we are Guardian Bob with an array of quirky sprites to assist us and we have viruses like Megabyte and Hexadecimal to thwart our desires and goals. That is the place I am at right now. It is time to reboot again, to start over on the journey to weight loss central. To fend off the viruses of despair and lack of motivation, to change out my weapons to better combat my enemies.
Occasionally we all need to do a reboot of our lives, or even just certain areas of our lives. When we do though, the good news is that we get to keep all the EXP learned and just have to reapply our points as we start again on a different leg of the journey. We retain all that we learned, what worked and what didn’t, and where we failed. Then we can take all this information and use it to try again.
I know there are many times in RPGs that I will stop in a town or safe zone and assess my equipment. I will take stock of what I have, equip better equipment or improve my current equipment before continuing the journey. We can read dozens of success stories and become so inspired to go about things the way they did and then get even more discouraged when their success doesn’t translate to our success.
However, what they did may not exactly work for you or me. We have to find the equipment, the regime, or appropriate lifestyle changes that will work for us individually. Just like in an RPG party you can’t have all Warriors; you need the Mages, Healers, Ranged, and Tanks to create a balanced and effective party. In the very same vein, the same strategy of weight loss, eating right etc isn’t going to work for every person.
We have to tailor the weight loss to each of us individually, find what you like to do physically and do that, and then when that is easy find ways to level it up to increase the difficulty. Experiment with different lifestyle changes for food to find the one that works for you.
If you struggle with losing weight and you have tried different diets, then maybe a good option to try is a food allergy test. See maybe what foods are you eating that you are actually allergic to that are prohibiting you from losing weight. I know for my own mother that is what really kicked her weight loss and health to a new gear when she found out what all she was actually allergic to and yet still consuming. It is amazing how much better you feel as a whole when you are no longer putting things into your body that are essentially poison to you.
So today, decide if it is time to reboot, restart, or respawn your life or just a certain area of your life. I know I have had several things happen that brought about this thought to reboot my life. This post worked out great to begin a series of post next week. I will talk about that more in next weeks post.
