Start Your Journey to Losing Weight
Here, in Part 3, we conclude the series that addresses a colleague’s question of how I started my journey to losing weight.
Ultimately, this is a guide to help you start your journey to losing weight.
Part 2 – What’s the Secret to Start Losing Weight?: Mind 180 focused on beginning to think differently. To start your own journey to losing weight, changing how you think prepares you for what follows.
Losing Weight Starts When You Choose You
If you tend to put your family and work before yourself, know that changing for you will make you better for everyone and everything else. Make a choice to take care of what is most important – you. That was that choice I made. Trust me, there is power in deciding to change for you and no one else.
Start Losing Weight By Knowing your motivators
I love making a positive difference in the lives of others. To a fault, I tended to take better care of others than I did myself. When that hit me, I knew what I needed to do. Helping others makes me accountable to others, much like this blog. To make this weight loss thing work, I discovered the only way to live my cold hard truth and to get past my obstacles and excuses, I needed to be held accountable. I was on my way!!
Identify your needs
My momentum started after identifying that I needed to be held accountable. Me, the woman who loved helping others, needed help. As a take care of others person, and control freak, it was hard for me to ask for help, but I needed it. The wheels were turning.
Ask for Help to Start Your Physical Change
Life is interesting. When you put vibes out into the universe life moves accordingly. Soon after I admitted I needed help, completely by happenstance, I ran into a former co-worker. He had become what he called a fitness consultant. Was that the same as a personal trainer?
By the end of our conversion I knew, as a fitness consultant, his advisement was based on individual needs, not a one size fits all approach. Intrigued, I walked away thinking to myself, “I need a fitness consultant.”
I liked the guy, but he was a bit too green for me to consider him. Instead, I did a Google search for “finding a personal consultant in new jersey.”
On Saturday, July 12th two thousand fourteen, I sat at my laptop and constructed an email asking for help.
