I bet that this question has been asked at least a million times in the past....six months. I bet it has been searched over and over and over again on Google, YouTube, Yahoo, You Hoo, Boo Hoo, you name it.
The Holy Grail of health and fitness--how can I lose weight fast?
But really, is there an answer to that question? For as many times as this question has been searched, there is an equal number of "professed" cures, solutions, pills, rubs, and creams. And if all of these programs are the key to success, then why is obesity at an all time high? It doesn't make sense.
Ahhh, but it does....to me.
And yes, you'll say that all those "professed cures" were just hoax's, not really ever meant to help people. Maybe you'll say that they are just 'magic pill' solutions that are about as effective as that thing that looked like a vacuum that was intended to cut hair.
Everything? What do you mean? Isn't that what it's all about--food and exercise?
No. Not even close.
You see, there are a number of factors that contribute to our junk in the trunk. How we view ourselves. Whether we think we're worthy of taking an hour out of our hectic schedule to plug in a Hip Hop Abs DVD. How we've made friends with Mr Food and depend on him daily to manage the stress in our lives. How we run from pillar to post without taking time to think about what we're going to put in our bodies each day, and never stop to think that maybe this kind of behavior is not okay.
It's all off this--all of this stuff contributes to our gaining weight and our inability to lose it--and until we stop to take a hard look at ALL the things that are going on in our lives that contribute to the problem--we are never really going to see long term success.
And what is also equally important to realize is that our weight loss journeys are personal. Individual. Unique. MY weight loss journey will be different than yours, because I am facing different challenges. We each have our own struggles and issues, and therefore to see long term success, we need to develop different plans of attack that are customized to suit our own needs.
So, today, if you are struggling and have no idea where to start take a moment to grab a cup of tea, sit down with a piece of paper and jot down all of the things that you can think of that are driving you to eat the way you do, preventing you from planning decent meals, and keeping you from working out. It's a good start.
And then think about specifically what you can do to change that. Where do you want to be in 6 months time, and how do you want to get there? Be specific. Be realistic. Be positive. This IS a journey you can complete.
Finally, write a note to yourself. Tell yourself that you are worth it. You are absolutely worth it! In fact, you rock! And starting from today--you can achieve the goals you have set out in front of you. Believe.
