Suffering is optional!

True or false:  You don’t have to suffer or starve to lose weight and be healthy.

Hmmmm…so, there I was lying in a hammock looking out over a peaceful lagoon in the Caribbean.  It was so beautiful, I was probably as relaxed as I ever could be, and I was thinking… “I need to get up and get some exercise or else I’m going to come back from this vacation 8 pounds heavier.”

That is a true story.  During that vacation I was entrenched in the fitness industry and with that came the philosophy of constant dieting and exercising.  So, there I was, in paradise, feeling GUILTY!

Oy vey!  Oh well…I’m happy to say I survived those crazy times and I am ever so grateful to be on the other side of them.  Boy I learned so much.

I admit, I was hesitant to change, but now I never have cravings, I don’t binge eat, never feel like I’m starving (I used to always feel that way) and I have more energy than I had in my 30’s.

If you share the “I have to suffer to lose weight” thought process, maybe it’s time to recalibrate the beliefs that aren’t serving you anymore.  Maybe it’s time to change them.

The first step is to ditch the “I have to suffer to lose weight” thought process and step into your power.  You see, losing stubborn weight forever isn’t about food at all.  It is about becoming the most powerful version of you that is possible.

Once you believe in your power, you will be victorious over your excuses.

So, jump off the treadmill of old beliefs and stop encumbering yourself with them.  They haven’t worked.

Try believing in your power.  Once you believe in yourself and your power to change, you will start down a new path to becoming lighter and healthier than ever.

Remember, you’ve got the power.
