My Husband Steve and I talked about weight loss and motivation today ... here is the jest of our conversation.
In order to be successful there has to be something that clicks in your head that gets you started.
It could be an immediate health crisis... In Steve's case it was a diagnosis of Diabetes that prompted him to lose weight and watch what he eats.. from time to time he indulges but most of the time he is careful in his food choices .
In my case something just clicked for me.. .. I can not say I was at an all time low ... I just realized it was this or bariatric surgery ... or die..
I opted to live .. and have as many more great adventures with Steve as possible... I am A lucky one... no health crisis preceded my weight loss so far... and I have a great support team.
People are searching for that magic pill... that quick and easy attainment of weight loss and very simply there are no long term or life long tricks like that.
Weight loss and good health baring any physical illness of course are built on simple and consistent facts.
A DECISION is made
A PLAN is developed be it WW , Calorie Counting, Carb Counting, a medical necessity , Medifast or TSFL or any of the other systems out there ... THAT PLAN MUST BE TAILORED TO FIT YOU.
A STRATEGY for life events birthdays weddings etc... must be developed as well.
A STRATEGY for coping with your new life ... trust me its a different world the healthier you get
A PLAN for exercise and strength building needs to be put in place.. MUST BE SOMETHING YOU ENJOY OTHERWISE YOU MOST LIKELY WILL NOT FOLLOW THROUGH... I swim and take water yoga classes and walk for now..
MOTIVATION, DETERMINATION, DISCIPLINE AND THE FOCUS TO NEVER GIVE UP NO MATTER WHAT CHALLENGE COMES YOUR WAY.. that's where I am now...
DECISION ~ PLAN ~ STRATEGY~ MOTIVATION~ DETERMINATION ~ DISCIPLINE AND FOCUS COMBINED WITH A SIMPLE PHRASE~ NEVER GIVE UP!
YOU CAN DO THIS... I AM ALMOST HALF WAY THERE NOW.. I AM STARTING TO SEE THE CREST OF MY SUCCESS ... I BELIEVE YOU CAN TOO... PLEASE VISIT MY COACHES PAGE FOR MORE INFORMATION ON TSFL SHE IS GREAT ... IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN WHAT I AM DOING... OR FOLLOW YOUR OWN PATH ..
PLEASE KEEP SEARCHING ...IF YOU ARE NOT THERE YET OR READY... AND PLEASE NEVER EVER GIVE UP... NO MATTER WHAT YOUR GOALS ARE.. BE THEY FOR YOUR HEALTH AND FITNESS OR YOUR CAREER NEVER NEVER GIVE UP..
