Becky’s Corner: The 3 C’s of Weight Loss

feet_on_scale1236718586.jpgEveryone wants to know the secret to weight loss; I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there is no secret. I always tell my clients, there are several factors that must be present in order for a person to make a lasting life change, lose weight and get healthy. I want to take this opportunity- to chat- about three very important factors in ANY health and wellness plan- that MUST be present in order for you to be successful. 
COMMITMENT: In order to be successful at anything in this world- you must be COMMITTED. You must make a decision on a given day that you are going to change your life, decide how you are going to change your life, understand why you want to embark on this change and go ahead and be committed to the change.
In order to remain committed- on occasion, without reason or rationale- you will have to make decisions- to stay on your life path. This means you will occasionally endure sacrifice that others who are not embarking on your life plan or change will not understand. You must be steadfast in your commitment- and reaffirm the reasons for your commitment. Let others know about your commitment and command respect for yourself by respecting yourself and remaining committed. Others will follow and respect your decisions as well once you respect yourself. Without respecting yourself and your commitment- others will not have respect for you or your attempts to lose weight and change your life.
Know and understand that your COMMITMENT to a healthy lifestyle- is 80% MENTAL. While you are changing your body, becoming more fit, exercising, changing the food you eat- KNOW these are all MENTAL changes- as your MIND CONTROLS your BODY. Without MENTAL strength and COMMITMENT- your life change will not last.

In making your commitment- I want you to think of others that are committed to something in their life……use them as an example, as a role model- and know that one day you will be a role model for others. If they can do it- YOU CAN DO IT.
CONSISTENCY: After you have made your commitment to your new life change- the next element that naturally follows is CONSISTENCY. You must be consistent with the changes you make in your life. You MUST BE CONSISTENT with your healthy lifestyle to see and feel improvement. Without CONSISTENCY – you are failing in your COMMITMENT. This means you must follow a healthy lifestyle for a long period of time- even if you are frustrated, tired, cranky- whatever. Forge ahead, push on, you will feel better for it soon thereafter.
CONTROL: Finally- know this- without CONTROL you will not be successful in your life change. When I refer to CONTROL – I am talking about CONTROL to ensure you eat good fresh foods, lean proteins, fresh fruits, fresh veggies, and whole grains. When I talk about CONTROL I am talking about the ability to say NO. I am talking about the need to CONTROL the forces in your life to ensure you have time to sleep, rest, exercise and enjoy the basic human rights of eating, resting and exercising. Take CONTROL of yourself, your life and you will be well on your way to a new you!!!
