If you are currently working to (or desiring to) lose weight, chances are you may have struggled with something many of our weight loss clients share with us: the challenge of being “perfect”.
It happens frequently. People lose, lose and lose more weight. They are cruising along well. Then, for whatever reason, they experience a “curve ball”. Some special event comes up. A favorite dish is on the menu. They slip up a bit. They “cheat” on their plan.
Of course, this is typically followed by feeling of let down in themselves. Maybe it shows on the scale. They immediately feel like a flop or failure.
But, wait! They had done great for days and days! Maybe even weeks … or months! Yet, they let this one time of weakness ... this one off day (or week) … get them down and throw them completely off course. We believe it is important to keep the BIG picture in mind. Don’t let one glitch ruin the effort. Don’t expect perfection. It, seriously, never happens!Read More
“I PROBABLY CAN’T AFFORD IT.”
Let’s address this one by first acknowledging that we do NOT know your personal financial situation. But we can say (with pretty good certainty) that this is an area that people frequently make assumptions … And have a mind-set of LIMITIED THINKING when it comes to their health. Here are just a couple of quick LIMITING THOUGHTS this topic typically brings …
First, many, many people in America today cannot afford to NOT invest in a REAL solution for their weight challenge. It has gotten to that point. The ramifications and true, astronomical costs associated with living overweight or obese absolutely squash the investment required to benefit from an effective program like ours.
Next, we simply cannot put a “price tag” on our health. The loss of health … and the loss of your enjoyment and self-worth is PRICELESS.
The dollars and cents related to weight issues in our country are staggering. Check these few stats out:Read More
Limiting Mindset #10
“I’m afraid I may fail.”
One of the questions on our new client paperwork is this:
What would prevent you from starting our program today?
Obviously, there could be many answers to this. Yet, one of the most common responses we see is:
“Fear of failing – again.”
The first thing we can say about this is that we understand. It’s a very common fear or apprehension in MANY areas of life … and certainly when it comes to weight loss! But, here’s what we have to say about this very prevalent LIMITING MINDSET …Read More
“It TAKES TOO LONG to lose it!”
There is NO DOUBT about the fact that this is a limiting thought for many.
We are NO DOUBT a quick fix society.
Yet, so often we hear that slow, progressive weight loss is always best. This automatically LIMITS many people. They simply opt to not start – especially when a person is already in that “Too much to lose” limiting mindset #6. But, you need to THINK OUT OF THE BOX HERE TOO!
Let us share a fact here: It is really NOT always the case that it’s going to take a LOOOOONNNGGG time to reach your fat loss goals. Those who think out of the box may actually find that there IS a way to safely and effectively lose weight rather quickly.Read More
“I Will Do This PRIVATELY On My Own.”
There is absolutely NO doubt about it: the challenge and frustration of struggling with your overweight is VERY personal. Because of that, many people like to make the fixing of it personal as well. If they can figure it out and succeed, that’s great!
But let’s admit it: it is difficult to lose weight on your own! It almost comes back again to the whole toleration thing we wrote about earlier. Sometimes, besides providing helpful direction and counseling, other people who are concerned about your health and who are focused on coaching people to lose weight and overcome their weight challenge do not tolerate us getting off course as much as we may allow ourselves to do!Read More
