Break Free!

By now, you have probably given up or restarted your weight loss efforts. You've gone on several diets that failed, tried weight loss supplements or other "miracles" just to sink $$$$ into the company or the sales rep's vacation in the Caribbean and knocked yourself out in the latest HIIT or Boot Camp classes. You saw results, but when you stopped, the results disappeared. Now summer is upon us and you feel like hiding. 

What Gives?

Hype! That's what! Marketing has done thorough research on your psyche and the weight loss phenomena. We want desperately to lose weight and look nice, so they promise to deliver results. And they do. However, the change doesn't last because you either have to rely on them paying thousands of dollars a year or you have to jump from plan to plan. Most people give up after two or three rounds because it's not realistic nor is it a lifestyle change.

What Now?
Stop the craziness. The answer is timeless: eat healthy, low calorie nutritious food in moderate portion sizes and exercise. The solution is so simple and so difficult because we want results yesterday while we keep living unhealthy lifestyles. It's time to take some drastic steps to make real, lasting change now!

No Excuses!
Honestly, there is no excuse for the" cattle run" on cruise ships as people barrel into the buffet gorging themselves on the vast array of food.  There is no excuse for not exercising.  There is no excuse for giving up. But there are explanations. You are fully capable of making the change. You just need to know you can do this.

Char's Soap Box
If I've said it  before and you are reading this in hopes to get some other secret tips, you probably didn't read my other blog posts about weight loss. Focus on a healthy lifestyle. That really is the bottom line.

  • Get real! Very few people will ever achieve the Barbie or Ken doll appearance. Very few will have the perfect muscle build. Those individuals are actually not the norm, they are the exception. Learn about your body and work with it. God didn't make a mistake when He created you.

  • Get moving! Find an exercise plan you can keep doing. Set it up in cycles so you can keep a healthy calorie burn. With so many types of exercise and tools, there is bound to be something you'll like.

  • Ignore the hype! Tune out the marketing and sales departments who mess with your mind by trying to sell you on their product, their workout plan, their whatever. Be health savvy. If you need special help losing weight, go through a medically supervised plan at your local hospital.

  • Make new friends! If your friends keep pulling you off track, they aren't very good friends. Spend more time with people who's health and appearance you admire. You will reflect what you see in the friends you spend time with.

  • Be patient! Nothing happens overnight. Neither does the new you. It takes time with a healthy dose of determination. Setbacks will come. Plateaus do happen. Don't give up on yourself.

  • Get busy! What you don't like about your body is what you've done to it. Be honest with yourself about what has happened. Set up your action plan. Get busy making it happen. Tip the Scales in Your Favor.

  •   There's an app for that! There are tons of apps available for your device to track your progress. Quite a few of them are free. Since we have our phones with us most of the time, you can instantly record weight, exercise, and food intake.

You can do this! You  are fully capable of making the changes to becoming healthier and feeling attractive. You just need the boost to make it all happen. Break free!

May God bless you!
