I'm so glad you showed up for this Challenge!
I know you want change, you want real, lasting change- you want to look better and feel great, right? You want summer legs, a flat stomach, unstoppable energy.
I know how that feels, because I've been in your shoes.
It's frustrating to try to change and just be stuck, making no progress all while killing yourself thinking you're doing the "right" things.
But the truth is, and I'm going to tell it to you straight, for things to change, things have to change. YOU actually have to change, and that takes guts.
I know, you're saying "Yeahhh right" but most people do not really want to change, they think if they just suffer through deprivation for awhile they can achieve their ideal weight and then back to normal.
There are many reasons that won't work long-term, and we'll be covering that.
But today, first thing, I want you to believe that there is a better way to live that hating your body, starving and binging, trying to exercise it off and never really getting the results you want, never really feeling ahmazing!
I want you to bravely face your deepest desires, about who you can become, who you want to become and why. Why is the key.
Why do you want to change? What are you going to get out of it? Love, admiration, security, attention, self-confidence, finally wearing an amazing dress you've had in your closet forever... what is it that is lacking in your life right now? What would you do anything for?
WHO DO YOU NEED TO BECOME NOW?
Who do you need to be to have what you want?
What result would make you say WOW?
Really, really think about that for a minute, maybe a day. If you were the person who was living in your body at your ideal weight, what decisions would you be making? What thoughts would you be thinking? What clothes would you be wearing? What would life be like?
Make that mental connection and you will see that the other, harder changes will become so much easier. You've got to sell yourself on the outcome FIRST!
Goal for tomorrow: Eat Protein & Vegetables at each meal
Drink 3 cups of tea and 5 cups of water
Snap a picture of your before self
I know you can do this! Make sure you think about who you are becoming first thing in the morning and last thing at night- set your alarm with a reminder!
PS: Even if steps seem simple, do them! Really commit to thinking, planning and implementing them- trust the system, you will see change!
