In my last blog we spoke about the difference between knowing what you need to do to lose weight and actually doing it. We all know what to do, but we do not always incorporate those things into our way of life. We use excuses, even though we are now aware that excuses are invalid claims that come as a result of thinking negatively towards an undertaking. Your internal dialog is telling you why it is okay for you not to make the choice that is better for you in the long run.


So when we know the difference between success and failure is how we look at an impending task, it is foolish not to look at the challenge before us in a positive way. Since we are on the topic of weight loss, try this tip from Believe and Receive's last blog. One a scale from 1 to 10 with 10 being the highest, how will you feel tonight when you know that you did get up and do that workout? Look back as if you already did it and feel the pride of going the extra 5 minutes on the eliptical. Feel confident that you are getting results because you are doing it. Yes you are a person that does what it takes to get the most out of life. One a scale of 1 to 10, how does it feel to be true to yourself and be a winner? For me it is always around a 9 or 10. Now how will you feel tonight if you don't do it. Replay the lame excuses in your mind that you are using, even though you know that your choice not to do it came from your choice to talk yourself out of awesomeness rather talking yourself into it!!! What would your number be? Maybe a 3 or 4? That technique should help you make the choice.


But the key to going from knowing to doing is changing the way you talk to yourself about your goal. And the best why to change your thoughts is to get clear on your why.


Your why is what you get when you ask yourself why you want to lose weight or get into shape. What result are you looking for?


Now I have several reasons why I want to get in shape. Although the number on the scale is not out of control, I still get that hoochie mama roll around the rim at the waist of my jeans. Not loving that! I also feel like I look better in clothes and have more option when selecting what I want to wear. I want to be in better shape so I can do more. In particular, I want to walk to Nepali coast and hike in Kauai. Those are just some of my reasons, but my WHY is that I will feel good when I have more options when selecting my wardrobe, I will feel fantastic when I zip those skinny pants and there is no jelly roll rising from the top of my pants. I am going to feel alive and as if I am living a dream come true as I easily walk first to the waterfall then to the beach, through the lush tropical landscape in Hawaii. I want to FEEL. We all want things, whether it is a tinier waist or a car, because of how it will make us FEEL.

You must feel your why. Put yourself in the future and feel your success! You must imagine that you have reached your goal by becoming a person who does the things you need to do in order to achieve success. How does it feel to be this person, the best version of yourself. It feels great to be you! You are awesome! You make great choices and get great results! You are fantastic!


In this mindset, it is easy to make the right choices. It will eventually feel natural to make the right choices.


Of course, like anything new, it may take a little time. When your thoughts turn to why not, just observe and acknowledge it. Tell yourself, “Wow, if I keep thinking along these lines I am going to talk myself out of taking the right steps to get closer to my goal. I can elect to keep thinking things that will move me away from what I want or I can decide to think in a way that will bring me success.” Every thought will bring you closer or further from your goals. Just ask yourself logically if your current thoughts are serving you. If they are not, change your thinking. Don't ask yourself how you feel about doing a task, as yourself how you will feel when you get the results that come from having completed the task.

How To Think 300x257 Find Your Why and Live It

Let's break it down. The past is behind us and we are going to have no regrets. Regrets are negative and move us away from our goals. If we need the thoughts to keep us from making mistakes in the future, they will surface. Until then, no looking back. We are starting fresh and going to easily lose that weight.


We know what to do, but we need to make those things part of our every day lives. All of our choices are made with “what feels best to us” as the guiding factor. So if you do not love the step you are required to take, think and feel the result, then go get it. Whether it is pride in doing the work out, calm when looking at an organized drawer or thrilled at the new things you learned when you took the class, go get that feeling.


Pretty easy so far, yes? Next blog we will go into the power of three easy steps to permanent weight loss.
