Woo Hoo!

I am down Point 8 pounds for my March weigh-in. That probably doesn't sound like very much to you, but it is quite normal, and it is a lot for me. It's been a bit of a struggle lately, given that, like you, I enjoy food, and I workout 5 nights a week.

Now, it is said that the average weight loss per week amounts to about Point 6 pounds. This is a healthy way to lose weight and keep it off. That is also the way that I lost my 25 pounds 7 years ago.

So, I feel good, and I am also pumped to continue.

I stayed for the meeting this meek, where we discussed motivators. What are the positive influences that motivate people to lose weight, and what keeps people motivated. In that list, we could have the following:
State of Mind
Positive focus

and my favourite
The Scale (this is always a sure fire motivator for me!)

Til next time.....

Ladder of Achievement

Ladder of Achievement

100% = I Did / I Do
90% = I Will
80% = I Can
70% = I Think / I Can
60% = I Might
50% = I Think / I Might
40% = What Should I Do?
30% = I Wish I Could
20% = I Don't Know How
10% = I Can't
0% = I Won't

So, what does this mean? Well, at any point in our weight loss journey, we can feel any one of the above at any time, no matter how long we've been doing this program. But what we hope is to be able to be at one of the higher percentages, where we are confident enough to say 'I Can', 'I Will'....the 70% and above.

There are things which affect the way we feel, and affect the way we look at our outlook, our progress:

=> Better health
=> Better mobility
=> Happier clothes shopping
=> Better mindset

Til next time.....
