Here's the problem you are probably facing when you try to lose weight or improve your health.
The problem is...
You've tried and failed in the past,
some part of you has become discouraged and has given up.
That's a problem because...
As long as you are discouraged, it's going to be impossible for you to do what it takes to lose weight and improve your health.
In fact, I have come to believe that...
The most important thing you can do to lose weight and get healthy is to overcome your discouragement about your past failures.
The fact is:
If you don't overcome your discouragement, you won't be able to make the changes you need in order to improve your health.
If you're going to succeed at losing weight, you'll have to make consistent, daily changes to your diet and your lifestyle.
And those changes will be impossible to make if some part of you is saying, "Yeah, that's a good idea...but I know it won't work for me."
If you've gotten discouraged about your health, I would like to help you. I plan to post once a week, and share what I've learned from my own journey to better health, and the journeys of my clients.
You might want to follow this website if:
- you’ve tried and failed to lose weight in the past, and have lost heart about it, or
- you feel like maybe you could lose the weight and improve your health, but it seems like that would mean a life of deprivation, or
- the idea of giving up the foods that you emotionally rely on seems like “too much,” or
- if taking the actions you need to take in order to lose weight and improve your health feels like “suffering through.”
If any of that describes you, then, on some level you’ve “lost heart” and given up on improving your health. And you won’t be able to wholeheartedly pursue better health…because, on some level, you already “know” it won’t work out for you.
You don’t need a better plan. You don’t need a pep talk. You need help finding a deeper source of inspiration, so you can wholeheartedly pursue the health you want.
If the idea of overcoming your discouragement sounds good to you, the first thing to do is to check and see if you are making any of the 5 Big Mistakes that people make when they start to try to lose weight and improve their health.
I've seen clients make these 5 mistakes over and over—and that overcoming them was key to their being able to take better actions toward improving their health.
I think this brief document will help you take the next step on your weight-losing and health-gaining journey. It will only take a couple of minutes to read, but the results you get could be long-lasting.
Until next time,
