Did you know this is the number one resolution made?
But only a few of you will succeed. And of those of you that do lose weight, MAYBE 5% of you will keep it off for good.
(I'm being generous with that percentage)
Most of you will gain back the weight. Usually, more than what you lost.
Kind of depressing…
Women come to me to lose weight. That’s my jam. I’ve done it, so they want to know all the “secrets”.
I usually start out asking them what they’ve tried in the past.
I get a whole laundry list…
The list goes on and on. While all of these are good ideas… none of them are the best way to lose weight with the intent to KEEP THE WEIGHT OFF.
The numbers don’t lie. These are the most popular weight loss “routines”. Yet, 90-95% of people gain the weight back if they ever lose it.
It’s really not a secret.
It’s just not the “easiest” or “fastest” way to lose weight.
I'm guessing you don't enjoy being on this constant roller coaster of dieting. The ups and downs physically and emotionally.
It's time to decide to get off the rollercoaster.
It’s time to refocus on what WORKS and leave behind what doesn't (even if everyone else is doing what doesn't work...).
Well, getting to the source of your problems… your thinking.
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:1-2
Look at what Paul wrote. He did not write, “Do what everyone else is doing.”
No! He said, renew your mind.
What does this look like?
Wanting to eat the salad instead of the spaghetti.
Finding joy in the early morning movement and quiet time.
Looking for the good in every situation.
Having the self-control to say no to pressure to eat/drink/scroll when emotionally stressed.
Loving the body God gave you and who he made you.
Renewing your mind takes effort. It takes work. It takes practice. It takes commitment. It takes TIME.
Nothing wrong with that. Go ahead.
Just know, you’ll probably be in the same spot next year, with the same resolution.
My suggestion, do it differently this year.
Learn a new way of thinking. Build a new of LIVING.
Then enjoy a new resolution next year!😉
