Secret? Well there really is no secret to weight loss. I think what is needed though is an extreme, burning desire
to do so. In other words, you have to want it really, really badly enough
and be willing
to do what it takes to do day in and day out - forever.
And if you're looking for the secret to motivation, that doesn't exist in my book. Motivation is great to get one started
, but unfortunately it is rarely around when the cookies are and when the couch is nearby instead of the treadmill.
So, I don't rely
on my motivation. Once I had that burning desire
to lose the weight - I made a commitment
. A commitment
that no matter what I was going to get and stay at a healthy weight. A commitment
to myself to do whatever it takes to be a healthy person. That commitment
is what keeps me from resisting xyz
and eating healthy foods instead, day after day. That commitment
is what forces me to exercise on the days that I "just don't feel like it."
So first dig down deep. Decide just how badly you want this. Then make that commitment
. Then find a plan that is right for you and make it work for you.
Losing weight, permanently, and a lot of it is possible. It's something that IS doable. And you too can most definitely do it!!
