The DOs outweigh the DON’Ts

I’m putting this here so I’ll always remember – the DOs outweigh the DON’Ts.

Why I DON’T want to lose weight…

  • I like food…greasy, carb-y, so-not-good-for-you food…smothered in gravy.
  • I don’t have time to workout. I mean, I have TV to watch, Netflix to binge on and LOTS of eating to do!
  • Changing my diet is way TOO hard! And expensive! I just bought 10 boxes of mac n’ cheese on BOGO – I can’t just throw it all away!

Why I DO want to lose weight…

  • I need to LIVE A HEALTHIER LIFE. Find out what the risks of fat are, here.
  • I want to TAKE CHARGE. I’m tired of being a backseat driver – I want to live my life without feeling limited by my size!
  • I want to LOOK & FEEL better – inside and out. Health starts from the inside, out – can you imagine what that must feel like? To accept yourself and heal from within??
  • I want to FEEL BEAUTIFUL and COMFORTABLE IN MY OWN SKIN.

There are like 1,000+ more reasons that could placed in either category…these are just a few that are circling around in my head.

Your Diet Starts Now – But Not With Food

Each time I think about changing my diet, my first thought is this – what can I cut out of my diet? Every carb, sweet and processed thing I’ve eaten in the past month runs through my head…pizza…cupcakes…candy…and on, and on and on.

And when that happens, so do the negative thoughts.

For as many times as I’ve started and stopped a diet and exercise regimen you would think that I would know being successful starts with your mindset and everything else comes second.

You have to commit. Zero-in on what you want to do with a new lifestyle and what you want to do differently. Because this is a lifestyle change – for you and your family and friends.

Why are you saying “YES!” to a healthier lifestyle?
