Let's get one thing straight about losing weight. THERE ARE NO SECRETS. Your weight loss program is an activity that you voluntarily participate in. You don't have to begin training like an olympic athlete or go on a fast from all your favorite foods. You do need to become an active participant in your new life as a healthy and happy individual.
You are going to change your life. Simply taking a pill and waiting for the weight to fall off won't do it. If you read the container of any weight loss supplement, it will usually suggest that the product works best with a healthy diet and at the very least, an active life style. The bottom line is that to lose weight and become healthier you will have to be active with your body, mind and spirit. Sure, that is an old worn out phrase, but it is nonetheless true, especially for those who have the desire to raise their standard of living.
What does this mean to you? First, let's take your body. It is letting you know it's time for a change. It is tired and out of shape. The mirror is an enemy. Sleeping is not restful. There is pain, lots of it. Your body is crying out for you to feed it some healthy food, give it some fresh air, and let it express itself as a physically active "living" entity.
How do you know this? Your mind is actually listening. Wow! Your mind and body are connected. Of course, your mind knew this all along. It has been worried and depressed. Thinking is not clear. Daydreaming has become an empty space. Your mind understands it is time to go to a happier place.
Your spirit is waiting. You have wandered off the path, but it knows you can find your way back. Your spirit knows where the happy place is. It will gladly show you how to get there and help you enjoy the journey.
So, as you can see, mind, body and spirit working together can make your weight loss program a success. You need to do it. You want to be happy and healthy. All of you knows it and all of you wants it.
Now, for the good part. The amzing is about to happen. As soon as you start on your weight loss program, you are going to feel better. Something good is beginning and it will improve how you feel. It will change your thinking. It will enlighten your spirits. This will be true right from day one. You might be a little sore, or tired, or miss that ice cream, but you will be a better person than you were the day before.
Your body, mind and spirit will all know that things are getting better. This will carry you through. Enjoy it. Be proud. Participate in the activity of improving your life. That is the secret.
Time is definatley a factor in planning your weight loss program. You need time to work out and time to prepare yourself quality meals that will enhance your weight loss efforts. Make all your food ahead of time and when at work or traveling, put the food in bags or tupperware and pack a fork, then you are never stuck for what to eat.
