Yes, that’s it. It’s consistency. There’s no magic formula.
Woody Allen once said “80% of success is showing up!”
And that’s as true for weight loss and fitness as it is for ANYTHING else.
You don’t need a magic bullet. You don’t need to find a magic diet (by the way, if you ever did, Carb Down is the one!), you need to control and manage your calories in and make sure you’re increasing your calories out. And you need to do it every day! That’s it.
So, have you made the decision to change your life and finally lose that fat, forever?
If you have, good on you! You’ve made a huge decision. It won’t be easy. But nothing worthwhile ever was. You’ll have to work at it, and on occasion, you’ll need to dig deep, but you have within you the power to make it happen.
And the key to it is consistency!
Effort, sweat, tears all count but you’ve got to turn up with your game face on EVERY DAY! It’s not a week long thing that stops at the weekend. It’s EVERY DAY and it starts NOW.
Know your reason, know your motivation, and now make it happen. EVERY DAY. Make the commitment to yourself and make it happen EVERY DAY.
Change your habits, eat clean food, exercise, think positively EVERY DAY.
Every morning when you wake up renew that commitment. Focus on the most difficult thing for you. If it’s exercise, make that your priority. If it’s food, plan your diet in the morning so you know what’s coming in the day. Don’t leave it to chance, take control.
The most amazing thing will happen. You’ll start to notice results. Then, gradually, your family will too. Then the rest of the world will too. You’re not doing it for them, that’s true but it will feel good when the fruits of your labours are apparent to everyone else.
In the past you stopped when you reached your goal. This time don’t. When you reach your first goal, set yourself another. Avoid the tendency to slip back, yo-yo ing back to the beginning. Set yourself another goal and focus on consistency. Make it happen EVERY DAY!
