I would like to tell you a little secret of my success in losing weight so fast. First, you must make a decision. The decision is that you are going to do this. You are going to follow the training plan and you are going to change the food that you put in your mouth. You’re going to hit play on your DVD player no matter what time of day and what you have left to do during the day. To get this burning desire, you need to find out why you want to do this.
This can be different for many people. For me it was my self-esteem, my son and my job. For you it might be that beach vacation you’re taking, a wedding, an army training or a marathon, or because your health is deteriorating. Next, you must decide what your fitness goal will be. Are you going to lose 5 pounds, 15 pounds, or 50 pounds? or more? How many inches would you like to lose from your waist? What size do you want to fit? How fast do you want your mile run to be?
Then WRITE IT OUT! Write your goals on a piece of paper and place it next to your bed. Read it before you go to sleep and when you get up in the morning. This will remind you of your goals and has been shown to increase motivation. Then choose your exercise program based on your physical ability. Beachbody has several different exercise programs to choose from. Do you want fun music and cardio? Try Turbofire. Do you want a total body transformation? P90X test. Do you have arthritis or a knee problem? Try Power 90. Whatever the choice, remember to read the manuals and follow the nutrition plans. Also ask your coach, they are very knowledgeable about a plan that will work for you.
It has also been shown that if you join a training group for support and motivation, you are much more likely to finish the program and reach your goals than someone who follows it. This is why challenge groups are so effective and why my team, Team Hustle, was created. It is to help others eat healthy and achieve their weight loss goals.
So start tonight with your goals. Write them down and add them as you go about your day. Just make sure they are big enough to motivate you to act!
