Today is one of those days when I think of all the things I need to do makes me feel overwhelmed. I sometimes wonder if I will ever get to where I want to go. And, after an A+ week with my food plan, I did not lose a pound. At this point I know the loss will come, it’s all part of the process. Now that I am feeling so much better and my mobility has greatly increased, I am anxious to get on with life. The road still seems long, but what I have that was missing 16 months ago is hope.
Hope is the first thing most of us feel in our hearts when we make great accomplishments. The word gets used so much, that it can get watered down. But Hope is what helps us get that train out of the station. I remember when I felt no hope, and most of my friends around me had given up and saw no hope in me. But I had a few loyal friends who always believed in me. I remember asking a friend many times, “Do you believe I can lost this weight?” My hope was gone, so I needed to borrow some. Their belief in me was the thing that got me started. Sometimes borrowing hope, can be the tiny spark that gets us going.
Do you believe you can lose weight and get healthy? Or are you looking for hope, and doubting your capabilities? Does the amount of weight you have to lose seem impossible? Let me tell you this, you can not possibly lose all the weight you want to lose, it is impossible! But, (and it’s a big butt) you can lose 1 pound! Just one pound! I have set out to lose 1 pound 300 times. That is do-able, and that may be the hope you can hold in your heart today. I have lost just one pound, 147 times.
I am getting the administrative stuff ready for Sean, Gerri’s and my next 8 week weight loss session with our group, “A Better Weigh” . This is exciting stuff! Our last group have had tremendous success! We only have ONE opening left for the Tuesday night group. So if you are hesitating, you best not delay! Here is a little information on signing up. The three of us who lead this have collectively lost over 550 pounds! That is so amazing! The best teachers and coaches we can have are those who have walked the path ahead of us. There is information in the EVENT section on my menu. Or just click the word EVENT and it will take you to the link.
I am also taking one on one Coaching clients. I have recently become a Certified Professional Coach, and although I specialize in weight loss, I can coach you through any task or obstacle in your life that you would like to overcome. Coaching is not Therapy. Coaching is not about analyzing but about action! If you are feeling like you are spinning your wheels searching for “why” coaching is for you. I can not tell you how much my life changed once I was coached. It gave me direction and helped me find the answers inside of myself. Here is some information on my coaching business. Please feel free to call or message me. I am offering anyone who is considering this a FREE first 30 minute session, with no obligation. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or text or call me at 712-259-1736. Who knows, it may turn your life the direction you always wanted to go. Here is a link to my COACHING page.
Thank you for reading. Your messages and faithfulness to my blog have been the fuel I use to keep going. I am grateful for the army of support around me. Blessings to you all!
