The Ultimate Weight Loss Question-The Ultimate ANSWER!

How Can I Lose Weight???!!?
I received an email from a reader enquiring, “Can you give me some pointers on weight loss?”
To which I replied, “might you please be more specific?” After all, I could write volumes on the topic, from top to bottom and bottom to top, which I have (two fabulous books thus far, in fact, chock a block with vital, useful and fun – yes FUN – weight loss information!).
More information poured forth from said reader, “What SHOULD a person do to lose weight? … One who has high blood pressure and diabetes? I know that I SHOULD eat less and exercise more. But I CAN’T seem to make myself do all that. I might not be TRYING hard enough. What SHOULD I do?”
My philosophy about weight loss is that the food plan is a part of the equation, because one can NOT lose food without a solid, healthy food plan, BUT it is only a part of the equation! What carries you forward into your compelling future, what keeps you motivated, what turns weight loss into permanent fat removal (ahhhh, chew on that for a moment before you move on) is your mind-set, your belief systems, which start with the words that we use.
STOP TRYING!!!
As Yoda from star wars says, “Do or do not … there is no try.” Every time you say that you are ‘trying’ to do something, you are essentially making certain that you have a way out. There’s no commitment in ‘trying.’ How many times have you said, “I’ll try to make it to your party.” -or- “I’ll try to stop by.” Did you? So, please. just DO. DO eat healthy, DO move and shake thy booty.
STOP SHOULDING ON YOURSELF!!
Nobody likes to hear “You SHOULD” …”You MUST” … “You HAVE to.” And yet … we are constantly telling ourselves what to do. These words imply obligation. You agree that you ‘should,’ but you don’t ‘want to.’ So, if you do what you ‘should do,’ resentment bubbles up, and if you don’t do what you ‘should’ do, you feel guilty, bad, feelings of failure surface. Work on your WANT POWER muscle; move toward ‘want’ and away from ‘should!’ Let go of the should, the guilt, the negative thoughts and move toward being excited that you are creating a new and wonderful life. What do you WANT to do?
YES, YOU CAN
If you tell yourself that you can NOT do something; then you cannot. If you tell yourself that YOU CAN, then you can. Start by acknowledging your thought and begin to turn it around by saying, “It’s not that I can’t; it’s that I just don’t know how.” Yes, you can lose weight, and yes you can figure out how. Get it?
If you TRULY want to Get UNSTUCK, then read these articles, ingest every morsel and THINK about your mindset!

    What a great post. I can’t wait to share this one with my clients. You get to the heart of some of the biggest mindsets that sabotage weight loss and prevent enduring change. Another one that you could also add to the list is perfectionism. Love the energy and passion of your blog Janice!

    Hey, if anyone is looking for a motivational tool to help them on their weight loss journey, you should try the WeightMirror application on the iPhone. It is fun and easy to use. All you have to do is take a picture of yourself and the application will instantly show what you could look like up to 50 Lbs lighter!
    It is fantastic and I would recommend it to everyone!
