This happened to me. Has it ever happened to you?
First, I got inspired about my health. From that newfound inspiration, I was able to find a diet and lifestyle that really worked for me, and that I really thrived on.
I lost 55 pounds with this approach...
...And then, without changing anything, I started to gain the weight back.
(And in case you think maybe I was cheating in some way, know that I actually started tracking everything I ate. My diet hadn't changed.)
I had simply hit the potentially-hearbreaking problem that health is a moving target.
Put another way...
On your journey to better health,
sometimes something will work for a while, and then stop working.
It's like the target of better health gets moved. The direction you were aiming isn't hitting it anymore.
It doesn't seem fair, but it's definitely true: Health is a moving target...so you need to be prepared for the day when what's working for you changes.
You've no doubt noticed that there are a lot of different approaches to improving your health, and that the practitioners of most of those approaches can make a pretty good case that they have found "The Answer." And when that "Answer" works for us, it's reassuring. It gives us certainty.
And then...it stops working so well.
The "good health target" moved.
Many of us give up when health is a moving target because we thought we found the answer—we really thought so!—and now that answer is not working.
Knowing that health is a moving target will help you be prepared for the day what you are doing needs to be adjusted.
There are three simple steps you can take today to be ready when health is a moving target. Click below to download my new 2-page PDF guide, "3 Simple Steps to Staying Inspired when Health is a Moving Target."
