Holidays are such a busy time of the year… go here, go there, Christmas shopping, Christmas parties, Christmas get togethers, baking the goodies for your family and friends… co-workers bringing in food to share…. cooooookies, cake, candy, drinks…. UGH!!
How many of us year after year make our New Year’s resolution to Lose Weight??? I have made that mine too many times to count! And I don’t know about you guys but I used to do good for about 2 weeks, if that! Then right back to where I was before. I had no willpower, no dedication, no desire to want to really make changes.
But I would try over and over again through out the year, and always on a Monday… I mean, why was it always on a Monday? I never had a real answer for that except, it gave me all weekend to eat as much as I wanted and indulge on everything that could possibly be bad for me… because come Monday, my stomach was gonna feel like my throat had been cut! I vowed over and over to get control. I failed each time…
I’ve learned in the past six months what my relationship with food was, what my triggers are, how to deal with it. What I put into my body matters more that just what the scale says or my pant size. I broke that mold that tied me down so many times.
I think the number one question I’m always asked is, “how did I do this?” second question “what did I do”? Everyone wants an easy answer or easy solution. Most of us know that proper diet and exercise is the key. But we want results now, not later. Yes, I had weight loss surgery but it is only a tool to help… it doesn’t stop the cravings or what I put into my body when I eat. Nor does it the surgery not make me hungry… all false!
So my answers to those questions are not some miracle cure… sorry not sorry. It took me getting educated and learning about nutrition and exercise… how to set goals, short term, and long term. I learned I had to be idealistic about where I want to be and not live in a fantasy world.
Set goals for yourself before the end of the year of what you want out of 2018! Write them down somewhere where you can see them. Don’t be afraid to change old habits, don’t be afraid to challenge yourself!
During the next year I will post about some of the things I have learned and for anyone out there wanting one on one coaching… you can contact me on this blog or my personal email…. firstname.lastname@example.org we can discuss your personal goals, and we can discuss my fees.
I can’t express enough what it is like to live a healthier lifestyle and how it saved my life getting educated!
You have to start somewhere… Make 2018 a healthier life for yourself!
