A weight loss journey is NOT only about weight loss

February 4th, 2015
This started as a post for Instagram and ended up with this. I still posted in Instagram though.

This journey isn’t simply about losing a few pounds. That’s always the main objective when a ‘newbie’ starts out, it was for me when I started. I have grown to know that this is not actually true though.

This is a journey to CHANGE your life, forever. Changing your thought process, changing your problem solving skills, changing your view of the world around you, growing into the person God made you to be! I firmly believe that the process has to start from the inside out. If you are full of anxiety, depression, anger, sadness, whatever the emotion is holding you in bondage, your success will be limited. That bondage is holding you back in so many aspects of your life. Break free from the bondage to the life that you were made for, the life that God designed for you. Dealing with the psychology issues is painful, but worth it. Talking about them and learning tools to help look at things differently is necessary in many cases.

Now then, I know people lose weight without changing anything all the time. I also know that few of these stories have long term success. The same 20 pounds is lost and regained over and over. I believe there are no pills, powders or potions that provide long term success. If you want lasting success, open your mind and allow your heart to change. Everything will change and you will be amazed at what will happen.

(Please know this is my opinion and this has formed over a 5 year journey of my own. I’ve worked with and spoke to thousands along the way. My opinion and approach to weight loss have evolved into what it is today, and it is just that, my opinion. I’ve seen success using this “inside out” idea. My goal for anybody I work with is this, “healthy, inside and out”)
