You can have the best diets in the world or the best training program, but if you're not you're not in it mentally you just you're not going to do any of it.
What I've come to learn as a Personal Trainer & Weight Loss Coach is that the most powerful element of the whole weight loss game is your Mindset. If we can't get this right it's not going to work.
What we're here to do on this blog is learn about the process of change and what we're talking about here is the long game.
Any program you do in the first six to twelve weeks you're gonna lose weight, it doesn't matter what it is, but that's not the problem. The problem is after that.
What happens after that? We typically lose motivations, results slow down, the inherent chaos of life comes in and throws us off.
'You can have the best diets in the world or the best training program, but if you're not you're not in it mentally you just you're not going to do any of it.'
This is what is the most important thing to be focused on:
How can we keep ourselves together and stay in the weight loss game?
This is what it's all about.
How do we see the road ahead knowing the things that are going to be obstacles?
If we know what they are then they don't have the power over us.
When the distortions of the mind come in and start justifying why it's okay to not train, why it's okay to eat those bad foods.
You can see them coming, you don't get hooked by them, you don't get hoodwinked by them, you get to have power to say no I'm going to stay in the game I'm going to get results for myself, I'm going to change my life.
So that's where the focus of our work is going to be.
Whatever weight loss efforts you're doing, keep doing it. Do more of it. Do something else.
We can give some tips and hints here as well in the physical space but in the mental space I think is where most of this industry isn't paying enough attention to and that's why everyone's in this cycle of looking for the magic program, the one that would be so wonderful and get results so consistently that it'll be so inspiring and I'll keep doing it forever. You know I haven't seen one of those before.
The truth is, losing weight is a process it's not one simple straight answer.
If we can stay in the game this thing is much more effective and much more enjoyable. And it's not just your health that improves, it's not just your weight and your looks that improve, it's everything in your life that improves.
That's what I've seen in my practice as well. I've actually become a Psychotherapist and use Hypnosis to help people get past their barriers, get past their blocks and be able to move forward powerfully in changing their lives, changing their health and making big differences that last, because who cares about the next six weeks, twelve weeks - we want your weight loss to last.
