You all know what to do to lose weight. You stop eating like a damn sumo wrestler and you start moving your ass. Right? Right. So then why do so many of us fail at losing weight? If we know what to do with our bodies, what to feed it, and how to move it, then why can't we lose the damn weight? Well, I failed miserably for 10 years but I finally figured it out. I lost 120 pounds six years ago and have successfully kept it off. The answers to losing weight might surprise you... They sure as hell surprised me.
1. Eat healthy
3. Don't stop
What is the biggest reason we ALL fail in losing our weight? We quit. We get frustrated, we start to lose our motivation, and we just balls-out quit. I kept quitting for 10 years. Over and over again I’d start… and then just stop. I’m just gonna go ahead and say it even though it’s blatantly obvious. If you quit, you will not reach your goal. Again… DUH
You forgive yourself for mistakes, you don’t allow setbacks to devastate you, you understand that this is a process, and you take time to ENJOY the journey as it happens.
You allow yourself happiness while you're working towards your goals… and not just saving it for when you reach your goals.
Statistics show that only 1 out of those 10 people will lose their weight and keep it off. I am in that 10% and I truly believe it is because of how I chose to perceive my journey.
