“The longer you wait to decide what you want to do, the more time you're wasting. It is up to you to want something so badly that passion shows through in your actions. Your actions, not your words, will do the shouting for you.” ~Derek Jeter
Like most folks we want so bad to lose weight and when we start a eating plan we find ourselves giving into our desires to eat. I have lost all my weight that I wanted and for the past 2 ½ years have kept the weight off. I go up then I go down. I am asked a lot how do you do it? My answer is “I had the desire to live a healthy life instead of being sick.”
The difference this time for me then all those before was I put action behind that desire. I made a decision to join Nutrisystem because I knew it would lead me down the path I wanted. Once I lost the weight I had to put that desire I had of losing the weight into keeping it off into action.
Once you feel that spark in your heart to eat healthier and to exercise, its hard to put out. The key is don't let outside influences like your husband, wife, kids or co-workers influence you. Not to say they would do it on purpose, but they do not understand what your going through. A good friend of mine from Group said “this is your journey”. She is so right, and YOU and only you can control the outcome.
Weight loss is long term and there will be times you eat things you wished you did not, but guess what that is okay as long as you get back on track the next day. I know I've done it countless times, but all in all I've kept my weight off. I am living my dream and so can you!
Once you believe in yourself and clear your mind of any defeatist attitudes, anything is possible...including losing weight.
