Being at a healthy BMI? Having normal blood sugar without being on medications? Having normal blood pressure or cholesterol without being on medications? Being able to fit into those clothes in the back of the closet?
Could you dream about what you want your life to look like? Feel like? Who would be with you? What would you be doing that you are not doing now? What does “healthy” look like to you? What does “having more energy” feel like to you?
Dieting is about running away from something……I don’t want to be fat! Dieting is about a short term goal that has little or no meaning……I want to weight 130 lbs When it is all about losing weight, what happens when you get there????? When you hit your destination, where do you go next? 85% of people regain their weight!!!!!
Begin with allowing yourself to DREAM! Find your WHY! Intrinsic motivation! Deep reason for losing weight and getting “healthy” What most excites you?????
It is NOT about “I should”, “I have to” “I aught to” We all start at “dieting” Are you ready to go to the next step to create success? You don’t have to believe that you CAN do this, you just have to be ready, want it and be coachable!
Dieting….you have a conflict (daughter getting married in 2 months and you HAVE to lose weight) You have immense willpower and do the best you can do (I HAVE to do this this time!) You loose a little weight (I did my best but I had so much stress and so many temptations and I couldn’t pass up that wine!)
Wedding day comes (I did the best I could do and I am OK with that. I have a slow metabolism anyway!) Wedding day passes and where is the goal? What happens to the weight? You lost your destination! There was no change of mindset! There were no new healthy habits created! Car analogy
What is your WHY? Your PASSION? Deepest reason for being healthy? What rocks your world? Allow yourself to dream about what you want You may not be able to see that when you start or may not believe it is possible Start with a small vision Take the “not believing” out of the dream
Your mind has FEAR! NEGATIVE THOUGHTS! NEGATIVE EMOTIONS! SHAME! GUILT! DOUBT! YOU CAN QUIET THESE THOUGHTS & QUIET THAT MONKEY BRAIN!
Is what your head telling you true? Do you really believe it? How about choosing NOT to listen, NOT to believe it, NOT to listen! We all have stuff going on are you going to let that stuff control your life? How about loving yourself! Proverb….Be careful about what you think because your thoughts dictate your life!
Do you find when you are in a good place you lose weight? Do you find when you are in a bad place you gain weight? You CAN choose to create your life instead of reacting to your thoughts and situations You can listen to the voices in your head but are they speaking the truth? Which voices do you CHOOSE to listen to?
Red light: You do not deserve this, you will always be fat, you cannot lose weight, you have a slow metabolism, no one loves you (food loves you), that pie will help you feel better, it’s only 1 glass of wine…….. I deserve it
Green light: I deserve this healthy choice! I can reach my healthy goals! I can make healthy choices! I CAN do the things I WANT TO DO! What do I WANT?? When we listen to our negative thoughts & believe them………spiral down!!!!! That is an unhealthy mind! Getting healthy starts with the baby steps to a healthy mind! Listen to the Green light thoughts!
Make the decision you are ready to GET HEALTHY!!!!! Connect with your health coach! Allow yourself to dream! Find YOUR WHY!!!!!! Create a dream board. Pictures everywhere! Your phone, office, computer! Be coachable! Lone Rangers rarely succeed!
