As someone who is writing about weight loss, a question came to me today, that is especially important at the moment. Yes, yes, I can hear you say, the question is the title: “Can You Diet And Party?”
It’s the day before New Year’s Eve, and at this time of year for many people across the world, it’s a PARTY time of year.
So, can you diet and party? Is it possible? Can it be done?
Hmm, as I think. Well if I was to say, party, I mean party. Not some half effort. Not some kill-joy attempt. I mean party!
So how do you party? What do you do when you party? When you let loose, have fun with friends, how do you party?
Do you need to drink and smoke? For many people when they socialise, one can’t live without the other. And to go further, when out with friends or out being social, how much do you need to drink or smoke or whatever?
Is there a requirement that needs to be met for you to tick off “fun”, on your party list?
A minimum amount of alcohol, bad food, drugs and so on, on that “fun/party” list?
Do you NEED these things to party? Can you not do without them? Are you addicted to them?
What is your definition of partying? Does it state levels of consumption? Or is it about socialising with the people you love and care for?
Maybe by just being conscious of your definitions and your requirements, you might start to curb those things that aren’t really needed to be social and to party.
Maybe you will be more conscious of what you should be valuing more.
How is it that our definitions and requirements to meet those definitions, are so misplaced? Where did they come from?
I suppose, with becoming more conscious of these matters, you can change what you need. And so, actively have a great time, party, and still keep your diet in place, without destroying your confidence in yourself in the process.
You owe it to yourself, to be healthy, to be fit, to live life.
