Losing Weight for a Healthier You - Motivation to Get You Started
Do you feel that you are destined to be overweight for life? No way! Imagine yourself 'thin'. You can do it – you can go from cocoon to butterfly in a few short months.
After all, a butterfly doesn't become a butterfly overnight. It takes time, but is it ever worth the wait! Butterflies are beautiful and fragile. They are unique – just like you.
You say you've tried to lose weight before and it just won't happen? Perhaps you feel that you have so much weight to lose that it would be an impossible task? Maybe you feel that all the 'overweight' genes in your family went to you?
Nonetheless, put all these potentials aside and imagine yourself 'thin' (society's term for normal weight).
How do you think you would look if you were thin? Being thin is not an impossibility.
If you truly want to lose weight and get fit, you can. Your trim 'you' is inside of you, waiting to come out. Right now, the thin you is locked inside a cocoon. After all, a butterfly doesn't become a butterfly overnight. It takes time, but is it ever worth the wait! Butterflies are beautiful, and fragile, and unique – just like you.
Is it easy? No! Losing weight and maintaining your new, healthier size takes a lot of work. It's a lifelong project and the better you take care of you, the longer you last.
Let's tackle our questions from above one at a time and see what we can come up with to help summon up some motivation for weight loss.
1. You've tried to lose weight before and it just won't happen. If it were possible for you to add up all those 'lost pounds' throughout your years of dieting, you may be shocked at the total number. Most life-long dieters have lost their current weight two times over, or more. The problem seems to lie with maintaining the 'new' weight, then losing more weight until one reaches their final goal weight.
2. You feel that you have so much weight to lose that it would be an impossible task? The longer one waits to begin losing weight, the more precious time they lose. One may spend months, even years, contemplating 'going on a diet'. Bottom line: it's lost time, time they could have utilized to get the weight off and keep it off.
3. Maybe you feel that all the 'overweight' genes in your family went to you? Research has proven that genes play a powerful role in body weight. If indeed, a person has more than their 'unfair' share of overweight genes, it is more difficult for them to attain normal weight than it is for someone who doesn't have an abundance of overweight genes. Perseverance will conquer and that's much easier said than done. However, it can be done!
Losing weight is an achievable goal, no matter how much weight one needs to lose. We all began as little dots and we grew into the size we are now. It's a bit trickier going backwards rather than forwards. It's reversed metamorphosis – from cocoon to butterfly for we humans. Go for it and begin today. Get those wings! Make this diet be your last diet.
