Question for you...whose fault is it that you’re out of shape? If you go by what you see in the media then you probably believe that it’s anyone’s fault but yours. The big diet companies think that if they put the blame on you, then you wouldn’t buy their bogus pills. So they put the blame on your cortisol levels, your fast food diet, or your busy schedule instead of where it belongs - which is squarely on your shoulders. Sure, you have obstacles that get in your way – your schedule, your job, your kids, the weather, your knee injury from college...but ultimately you have the body that you accept. I’m going to repeat that so it will really sink in. You have the body that you accept. Accepting the blame for your current body is not a bad thing – it’s actually quite empowering. Think about it. If it really wasn’t your fault, if it really was due to a long list of variables that you have zero control over, then you’d be stuck. You’d have no way to change. Lucky for you, it’s your fault :) So you have the power to do something about it. The Secret Behind ‘Before and After’ Pictures Allow me to pull back the curtain for you on something that the diet industry doesn’t want you to know. You’ve seen countless before and after pictures documenting weight loss as a result of a diet product. Well, there is more involved than just the diet product, and it’s the same across the board. Look into the eyes of any person in their before picture and you’ll see that they are disturbed. The body they have is no longer in sync with the body they can accept. They changed the body that they accept. Now look into their eyes in the after picture – see the sweet satisfaction? They now own the body that they decided they could accept. And what a great feeling that is. Your Time To Transform Whether you realise it or not, you already posses everything you need to transform your body, but it all starts with taking responsibility for the body that you have today. You have your current body because until this moment you’ve been OK with it. Oh sure, you aren’t thrilled with it, and you even talk about losing weight and getting fit, but you haven’t changed what you’ll accept. Here’s how to transform your body in 3 steps: Step One: Get Disturbed You’ve heard it said that emotion creates motion. This is essential when it comes to losing weight. Just like those folks in the before pictures, to transform your body you must first decide that you can’t live another day in the body you currently have. It’s time to get your emotions stirred up. Make a list of all the reasons that you must lose weight and get fit. Get disturbed! Step Two: Get Focused Without clarity it’s very hard to get where you want to go. Now that you’re disturbed with the body you have, it’s time to decide what the body you can accept looks like. I want you to think in concrete and specific terms. Just like the captions under those before and after pictures - "Suzy lost 11.34 kilos," "Mike lost 20.32 centimetres from his waist," "Jenny went from a size 18 to a size 6." Get a clear picture in your mind of what you’ll look like in your after picture and visualise what the caption will read. Step Three: Get Moving The time spent between your inspiration (now) and your action determines whether you will succeed or fail. Don’t allow yourself to get stuck between inspiration and action - there is always something that you can do right now. Don’t you agree that you’ll be happier living life in a fit, healthy and attractive body, rather than the body you have today? Of course you’ll be happier. I’ve helped scores of clients just like you finally lose their unwanted weight. I am here to take you from your before picture to your after picture, however, you need to bring something to the table – you need to make up your mind about what you’ll accept of yourself. What will you accept?
