If you’ve ever felt like you can lose weight, but it always comes back after
Your weight loss is incredibly slow when it seems to catapult along for everyone else,
then this article is going to be a game changer for you.
Writing is a bit like weight loss.
It’s a nightmare to get started. Your palms sweat, your heartbeat increases and you drum your fingers on the table as you stare at a blank page.
And finally, one of 2 things happen.
1. You wait long enough to find some inspiration.
2. You quit. Again.
I can’t tell you how many times i’ve quit.
And failed for that matter.
I still think i’m a terrible writer. But, if i stick it out long enough, I hope to become great!
Writing is a LOT like weight loss.
Ever notice it takes you an AGE to get started on your new diet and exercise plan? Then once you run out of ideas (or diets) you just quit?
Well today i’m going to give you 3 tips to overcome the cycle of losing and gaining the same 10lbs over and over again.
Listen: Losing weight does get easier.
However, starting to lose weight never does.
It’s always a struggle to break those sweet habits. If you can refrain from ‘starting again’, then you will be halfway there.
Don’t wait for the perfect diet, don’t wait for the perfect training partner, the perfect time is now.
You will never be this age, this fit and in this mindset again. Use THAT as your motivation and begin now.
Ask yourself this question. What happens if you DON’T do this? Go ahead and make a big old list like this.
— I keep gaining weight. And keep getting more miserable.
— I’m still not able to do all the things In life I want, like go shopping for new clothes which make me feel good.
— My health continually gets worse, and worse, getting closer to cancer, diabetes and heart attack. If I don’t change i’m closer to…
— Death. (Seriously) Think about it. Horrible isn’t it?
If you can write down all the bad things that will happen if you don’t commit to changing your lifestyle. This can often be more of a motivator than the positive outcomes.
I’ve done this exercise multiple times and I can’t tell you.
It works every time.
Ask for help. One of the biggest mistakes I see people make is that they try to go it alone.
I’m going to be real with you a second.
If you’ve tried to lose weight and you’ve been on every diet, and every program, taken every pill and STILL AREN’T as slim as you would like…
Stop doing the same thing over and over. It’s time for a change.
Invest some money (how much have you wasted in gym memberships) in professionals to help you.
– A professional psychologist so you can overcome your emotional eating.
– A meal prep company so you can overcome the fact you’re not Gordon Ramsey, low on time or both!
– A trainer can help push you to places you won’t go by yourself.
It’s been just 30 days since you started your new body transformation program.
Your energy levels are soaring, the scale is going down and your friends are amazed at how great you look.
You finally realise how incredible it feels to drop your extra body-fat and gain beautifully sculpted muscle tone…
This is your future reality! If people have been able to it before, unless you’re an alien species, you can do it too.
– Losing weight gets easier. Don’t delay.
– Write a list of terrible outcomes if you don’t change. Do it right now.
