“You become the average of the 5 people you surround yourself with the most”
Well, if that was the case, I’d be the average of a Peter Rabbit teddy, my 16 month old daughter, a twirlywoos teddy, Paddington bear, and a penguin teddy….
But I do think they have a point.
After all, those who are attached to groups for weight loss lose more weight. 7 times more weight in some case.
And this is regardless of whether the ‘diet’ they do actually teaches them principles they can do in real life when you have social situations, long days at work, travel, endless emails and just feel like collapsing on the sofa with a glass of vino and packet of crisps…
Well, I think having like-minded people you can relate to going through a similar journey allows you to understand that thoughts like
‘I’m too unfit to start”
“‘I have no willpower so I won’t be able to do it’,
“I know what to do but can’t stick to it even with my good intentions’
“I’m too fat to start”
” I want to still be able to have a life”
are actually very common and – perhaps more importantly – OK to feel.
But one thing I want to challenge you to do today is to question whether these thoughts help you become who you really want to be
just provides some temporary feeling of pleasure that soon turns into pain when nothing changes?
And I get that it’s not an easy question to answer. And I get that this health and fitness industry is intimidating.
How do I know?
Well, one of the reasons I created our ladies only Fit For Life Body Transformation was because more and more ladies were telling me how anxious they are about going to a gym.
I mean, think about it, an industry that is supposed to be promoting health and helping you lose weight was actually putting you off doing that?
And it’s why I’ve simplified this weight losing and toning up stuff down and – so far – seemed to have created something that is helping ladies lose weight no matter how many ‘diets’ they’ve done in the past.
Here’s a message from Lisa I got this week:
“I was talking to a friend at the weekend who asked how much weight I’ve lost and how long has it taken. I replied 1 pound short of 2 stone since 8th Jan.
She replied wow, 2 stone in 4 months, that’s amazing. It really got me thinking about how much I’ve enjoyed my journey so far. I probably enjoy food more than ever and it’s no hassle when eating out.”
What has impressed me the most is not just how consistent Lisa has been, but also how she’s developed such a positive relationship with food so it’s “no hassle when eating out”
Which for me, means it is ‘Fit For Life”…
Which just happens to be the name of my new programme launching on Monday 2nd June. Click below to learn more:
