You’ve been putting off changing your diet for a while now. The cold, rainy weather didn’t help much. It fooled you into thinking you might be able to hide behind that baggy sweater forever, but-
The day of reckoning has come. We have warm beautiful sunshine and you are nowhere near ready to start wearing shorts and sleeveless tops.
Why do you do this to yourself? You say you want to lose weight, exercise and feel great again but in no time, you’re back doing the same old thing, in the same old way, over and over again.
I am going to tell you the truth. It’s because change is hard and it’s scary and it makes you uncomfortable.
Nobody likes those feeling but they don’t last forever. If you hang in there long enough, on the other side of that scary stuff lies your deepest desires, hopes and dreams.
But let’s not pretend it’s going to be easy. There is a price of admission to a better life.
Are you up for it or not?
If you are willing to come to terms with these 3 things, you have what it takes to reach your goals and create the life you truly want for yourself.
- Fear of the Unknown. Will it work this time? I am going to have to give up some foods I really love. Am I going to be able to do that? Do I really want to? What if I lose weight and then gain it all back again?
The better question is: “What will happen if you never try at all?” There is nothing good that has ever come of that.
What would happen if you were willing to let go of the idea of doing this diet change perfectly and just trusted in your ability to figure it out? Yes, it might get a little messy but so what? If you pick yourself up every time you screw up, learn from your mistakes and keep moving forward, you will accomplish any goal you set for yourself, including permanent and healthy weight loss.
- Other People May Not Like It If You Change. That is true. Some will not understand, and others will judge. They cannot be the people you turn to for support unless you want to play small for the rest of your life.
There are lots of people who will be happy to have your back. Go find them and let them raise you up to the person you want to be. At the end of the day, it’s your life and you need to decide how you want to live it.
- It’s Going to Be A Struggle. Some days it will be, but not every day. There isn’t anything in your life that you treasure and value that doesn’t come with times that try your soul. That’s what makes them all the more precious.
When you honor the struggle and use it to grow and challenge yourself, you develop pride and integrity and the confidence of knowing you can do anything you put your mind to.
You can do that, can’t you?
I would be happy to help. It would be my privilege to guide you on your journey.
