So today I like to talk about a touchy subject. It’s touchy because there’s really not a nice way to say it. So I’m going to just say it. Weight loss is hard and if you keep living the way your living and do nothing to change it then nothing will change. I see 10 to 15 clients a day regarding their weight loss goals, myself am on a weight loss journey as well. I am on a mission to be hundred pounds lighter by April 1 next year. With that being said I believe that I’m allowed to say what I’m going to say because I am living through these challenges as well. In recent weeks it is come to my attention that there are so many people who believe that they can return to their old habits after being on a diet and expect to keep the weight off. That is impossible!!! Ideal Protein is considered a treatment program with a healthy balanced maintenance program that will keep you at your goal weight. But what people don’t seem to understand is that you can go back to having pizza and beer three days a week or drinking a liter of milk with your breakfast, or eating white bread with every meal. My attitude is changed lately about what might life needs to look like in order to create a lasting positive change and I’m not sure how to communicate that to people.
What I have discovered about myself in the last few weeks is that I truly want to be healthy, I truly want to be thin, and I truly do not want to go back to eating processed food. I do not want to want McDonald’s, I do not want to eat white flour and dairy, and I want to be active every single day. I want this for my future. I want to be my best self.
So what I’ve been trying to communicate my clients is that they need to find their why. I believe of talked about the why before; the why is the only thing that will keep you from going to the drive-through, the why the only thing that’ll get you to write in your food Journal of the end of every night, and the why is the only reason that you will drink insane amount of water a day or get you off the couch. Finding your why is hard because for me at least, it is superhard to love myself enough to not damage my body. And that’s really how we have to look at “junk food” it is doing nothing good for our body, it is only damaging. Now I know that the Ideal Protein program is for everybody and that’s okay I won’t be offended. I actually just finished my nutritionist training as well so I have several tools in my belt to help people in many ways but what I have to get over is that some people do not want to put in the work to get healthy and I have to stop taking that personally. But after all the researching, documentary watching, and time spent in class these last few weeks I know that this country needs change. I want to be part of that change, not only by changing myself but by helping others change. So world, I’m looking for advice, how do you communicate that weight loss, health, and living your best life doesn’t happen by accident. It happens by hard work, dedication and self-love. I welcome your comments I am looking for answers
