Measurable And Immeasurable Results

Hi Everyone,

This week’s blog is about measurable and immeasurable results in the journey to better health. Many of us who are working on losing weight and becoming fit, look to results that we can measure to see our progress.

When we’re on the scale and we see that needle inching downward – that’s a measurement of progress.

The same can be true when we visit the doctor’s office. It could be that our blood pressure is near normal, our cholesterol levels have improved or we’re no longer prediabetic.

Even when we put on a pair of jeans and find they now fit perfectly instead of being too snug around the waist – that’s a measurable result of our hard work.

For me, those measurable results reinforce the importance of sticking with my DDC’s. Dedication. Desire. Consistency. Those three things are what help me achieve those positive changes.

The DDC’s also lead to positive results that can’t be measured by a scale or a smaller pant size. These immeasurable results are more about the psychological changes that happen when we experience success in our goal to lose weight.

Studies show that these changes include improvements in self-esteem, depressive symptoms, body image and health-related quality of life.

Whether the results are measurable or immeasurable, the message is we need to stick to the lifestyle changes we’ve made. Not just until we lose the weight but every single day. My DDC’s are helping me. I’d love to hear what is helping you.

Stay Healthy My Friends,

  1. My wife had a spinal cord injury a little over a year ago. She goes to the Center for Neuro Recovery in Palm Beach Florida. She is making tremendous gains each week utilizing their comprehensive program. One of the best pieces of equipment that she uses on a daily basis in this comprehensive program is the NUStep T5XR.
