CNN and KMOV4 in St Louis published a story on a family who together lost 300 pounds!
That story started me thinking about the motivation to lose weight and why some people succeed at it and others don’t.
People such as Tony Robbins suggest that you need an important why and an equally important why not (as in, what it will cost you if you don’t do it), and then you have to make it a ‘must’…
…but for those who have tried and failed, most will say they thought they would succeed each and every time… and yet…
For the Rose family in the story, it was a brush with death that motivated the change from try to succeed – but if you look further, it was a series of small actions that together made the difference.
…and I know you’ve heard all these before, but have you actually DONE them?
- Remove junk food from the house – and don’t buy any while you are out
- Cook healthy food instead of buying take-out
- Do some form of regular exercise – even walking can make a huge difference
…and above all, have a REASON that will make you keep going… Don’t wait for a brush with death to be your catalyst for a healthy life change!
You can do it!
