Twenty years of health club consulting, 50,000 hours of paid personal training, and trainer to the stars has taught me one thing; weight loss is not about numbers, it’s about your approach.
Here it is in a nutshell!
#1: Determine HOW you are motivated and WHERE your desires come from. You may think you know, but you don’t. If you fall on and off the wagon you don’t know how you are motivated. People are motivated two ways; fear, pleasure or both. Your desires to feel better and look better or get in better shape come from two directions, inside or out. Most people who fall off their exercise and weight loss programs do so because you are motivated by the wrong one of the two. And your desires come from the wrong direction. Figure these out and you will have staying power.
#2: Figure out the true beliefs behind each unwanted behavior of not exercising and eating wrong. You have a false belief system in your head about food and exercise. Determine what it is and then you can change it. If you are not following through and sabotaging your programs, it is because of the illusion in your head.
There is an diet and exercise program that helps a lot.
#3: Develop a GREAT support system. Steps two and three are your key to your success in your weight loss. Encouragement backed up with accountability is the key.
#4: Concur your emotions behind your eating patterns. Pre plan your meals, have a good perspective toward food, figure out patterns, and watch your portions. That simple.
Eating schedule always helps.
#5: Just move your butt. Losing weight is not complicated. Keep the big picture in mind. Stay constantly moving, and quit making dumb excuses.
There are no magic formulas to weight loss. Until America wakes up and understands that your health is not about the numbers on the exercise or medical charts, it’s about the approach, we will continue to be the fattest nation on earth.
