No, I haven't got a husband. But I got an email from a Fit For Life Body Transformation member at the back end of last week (I’ll keep this one anonymous)
And here’s what it said:
“My husband noticed the beginnings of stomach muscles showing today…!”
And this is coming from the same person who was told by her Slimming Group ‘leader’:
“We don’t like people who don’t lose weight”
^^^ Something I spoke about yesterday over on my blog
And it’s hearing these types of stories and SEEING massive changes
Not just physically
But also in their confidence
That makes me so lucky to do the job that I do
^^^ And I know this all sounds wishy-washy but I really mean it (pass me the tissues)
Because I know how much she’s been wanting to hear praise from someone else.
^^^ as we all do
And I know you might be thinking:
‘you should do it for you’
And, I get this.
She does do it for herself
And she’ll be the first to admit that
But you can’t argue with the fact we love to get complements from others.
And if your goal is to lose weight so you can fit back into your favourite clothes, surprise friends and family at social events, and feel more confident in everyday activities like work and social life…
Then I’d say you’re human!
And I’ve talked before about having another goal like running your first 5k..
But the truth is, do you really care if you can do a 5k race in a muddy field?
If no, then are you just doing this to impress somebody else anyway?
Doing this because everyone else is doing these runs?
And what I’m leading up to is this:
It’s not vain to want to look and feel good.
Get complements from others.
As humans, we like to hear when we’re doing well in stuff.
It’s life and makes us feel better.
You don’t have to do a sport and start running to get there.
^^^ Unless you want to, of course.
Because getting the body you want in a sustainable manner is a lot more effective (and fun) if you enjoy what you do AND GET RESULTS!
See stomach muscles and get complements from others…
The truth is, if you don’t care about running a 5k and just want to tone up and feel better in your own skin…
Training to run a 5k might not be the best way to go about losing weight, toning up, and feeling more confident.
And coming back to this ‘anonymous’ member of my Fit For Life Body Transformation Programme…
She could already see the changes in her weight and how her clothes fit.
Has been wondering when other people would notice
And the key message here?
It’s taken time
^^^ Humans often don’t like saying to others that they’ve lost weight because it makes us think about our own situation and reality.
But she’s been consistent.
Well, she’s reaping the rewards of ‘stomach muscles’
Trumps the ‘trendy’ one-dimensional cookie-cutter diets that “don’t like people who don’t lose weight anyway”.
^^^ Still can’t believe a ‘leader’ of a slimming group said this (the angry looking creases on my forehead are my battle scars)
