How Are You Controlling Your “R”?
As we all know, hitting the “CONTROL” button along with the “R’ on a keyboard is used to “REFRESH” the contents of the current window. Ever wish you could just do that in life?
Of course, that’s not really possible. In fact, it may not even be in your best interest. After all, we ultimately achieve our highest levels of growth, maturity, performance and results when we learn, adapt and respond to the various experiences, wins and losses of life.
In this blog, we want to re-connect about another “R” that needs “control”. Although it may not result in a total “refresh”, we have observed it to ultimately help many clients to experience very positive results when it comes to their weight loss and wellness.
It is obvious to everyone that America is currently in some very unique and trying times. Of course, as a result, many individuals are also experiencing ultra-challenging times. We hope you and your family have all done well through the past 4-5 months. Unfortunately, many Americans have not. The times have created such stress, anxiety and life changes that their metabolism and weight have paid the price.
In Jack Canfield’s wonderful book, The Success Principles, he introduces the formula in the image below.
So, what does E + R = O mean? It’s very simple:
Event + Response = Outcome.
In essence, it explains that we can NOT always control the events in our lives (such as the COVID-19 pandemic and all of the associated factors which may have challenged your health, weight and wellness). But we CAN control our RESPONSE to those events. Some people call this “The R Factor”.
The “E + R = O” formula holds true in any area of life … including your weight loss journey. You will certainly experience challenges, distractions and setbacks. If weight loss was easy, then everyone would be an ultra-success. We all know this is not the case.
This pandemic has created vast array of questions about the BIG picture impact of obesity on overall health. Specifically, we are getting many inquiries about the effect and benefits of our clinical based weight loss program. Perhaps this is partly due to the fact that (besides age) obesity has been named as one the TOP risk factor associated with COVID-19.
A July 1, 2020 blog on houstonmethodist.org entitled “Obesity & COVID-19: Can Your Weight Alone Put You at Higher Risk?” was written by Katie McCallum. In that blog, it is stated “But, even if you feel healthy, just being heavily overweight can increase your risk of severe illness as well”.
She goes on to quote Dr. Kyle Stephens, weight loss surgeon at Houston Methodist, who said, "In fact, obesity is the number one risk factor for developing a severe case of COVID-19 in people under the age of 55". He went on the state "People don't always see obesity as abnormal, since it's quite prevalent, but it's important to know if your weight is putting you at risk for COVID-19, as well as other health conditions."
Source after source – and expert after expert - has made this fact clear. It’s NO surprise that this has awakened many people up to the fact that they really do need to “control their R” … they need to RESPOND … and seek out a healthy, science-based weight loss solution.
