Hudson's Headspace: I Did it My Weigh!

Member's Blog - Journey of a Weight Loss Resources' member…

What is WLR?

January 22, 2015

The past few months have been pretty challenging here at Hudson HQ.  People I care about, the VIPs in my life have been through tough times; they have faced life changing events, and done so with strength and grace and humour.  It hasn’t been easy... for them or me... but I have to say that without WLR it may have been a heck-of-a-whole-lot harder.

The support and messages I’ve had from my friends here at WLR has kept me sane;

they’ve helped me when I’ve travelling the length of England to make sure my loved ones are doing okay; they have made sure that, when I think the answer to my problems, (stress, fatigue, and sadness) comes in the form of Jam Doughnut, that they have spoken clearly and concisely and told me to “STEP AWAY FROM THE SUGARY SNACK”.

I hope they know how much they have helped – I do try to tell them – but if they don’t, I hope the public THANK YOU here at Hudson’s Headspace will go some way to making them realise how grateful I am.

The other big “Thank You” has to go to WLR itself.

Many of you know that Lovely Husband, whilst not needing to lose a great deal of weight, did need to make some changes to his lifestyle and habits.  He asked me for help and support, (which is utterly unconditional), but I knew that the first port of call would be WLR.

Too much “full fat” coffee (about 10 pints a day); a fondness for Rioja; multi-packs of crisps being consumed in “one hit” (but the only thing he ate all day); and the ten-a-day smoking habit... all of these had to be addressed.  Other family members had to deal with their tendencies to deep fry everything; consume their body weight in cheese on a daily basis; and curb their “chocolate/hazelnut spread” addiction (literally taking a teaspoon and eating a medium jar in one day - Not Good!)

At first glance WLR can be dismissed as “another weight loss site”. Some people would call it a “diet site” (in a “drop-the-pounds” sense).

And whilst I agree it is a “diet site“, it isn’t just about losing weight – it’s about diet in whole sense.  It’s about learning lessons that will stand you in good stead throughout your life.

When the people I love needed to make changes I directed them to the WLR website.  They had a point and press, they clicked their way through the pages and as well as being able to understand why the changes needed to be made, they were also able to see that the changes were possible; that they didn’t have to be difficult or time consuming and, most importantly, that if they did find it difficult – help was never far away.

I’m delighted to report that the chocolate-and-hazelnut spread is now used sparingly on a slice of toast two or three times a week; the fryer has been replaced by a “lean grilling machine” and cheese is still enjoyed but it is the “light” variety and consumed in moderation.

As for Lovely Husband.  He’s still pretty poorly but the doctor has congratulated him on the changes he has made.  Stopping smoking, cutting down (or in LH’s case cutting out) alcohol and caffeine and drinking lots of water every day is the norm now and although he is poorly the GP acknowledges that the changes he has made to his lifestyle mean that LH has done all he can.

The problem now needs the intervention of the experts.  Medication needs to be sorted out, and a treatment plan drawn up; but with luck and good management things may not be as bleak as they first appear.  LH knows that it could be a long haul and that he may yet have to make more changes to his daily routine and regime.  He also knows that he has been lucky to have the benefit of the WLR-wisdom because... if he hadn’t applied the wisdom he has learned from WLR he may have been facing a very much tougher battle.

WLR stands for “weight loss resources”, that’s what it says at the top of the website,

but for Lovely Husband the initials have a different meaning.  They are now his “Well Life Rules”.  If he applies the principles and sticks to doing what he is doing, then he is giving his body everything it needs to be as efficient as it possibly can.

Unfortunately, right now, his efficiency levels are much lower than usual – but they are higher than they would have been ten months ago.  The WLR initials also represent the fact that they form the basis of LH’s “Whole Life Rules” because it is clear that Lovely Husband is going to have to “get with the programme” for the rest of his life if he wants to be as physically well as is possible but by doing so he should be on track and on course to follow a “Wonderful Life Route”.

Which is exactly where I want him to be.

Have a great weekend
