It really isn’t hard to lose weight once you get out of your own way and allow yourself to lose weight.
What does this mean? Well, you always have a choice in your actions and you can just as easily choose healthy actions that will allow the fat to drop from your body as you can choose actions that will slow your metabolism and either add weight or keep the weight on your body.
When you take the route of choosing health rather than choosing dis-ease, you allow yourself to lose weight and when you choose the opposite state, the opposite of health and wellness, then you are putting up all of your blocks with all of your force against weight loss.
Why Would Anyone Do That??
So that’s a question….why would anyone or why would you get in your own way and block yourself from losing weight instead of allowing your body to shed the fat and feel great?
Well there could be many reasons, reasons which I cannot possibly garner from you personally through this post, lol since I do not know you, however here are a few that I can come up with in my own mind:
- Fear – Fear of success, fear of failure, fear of change, fear of the unknown.
- Wanting to be right instead of happy – If it’s more important to you to be right than it is to be happy by making some healthy changes in your life then you will stick with your unhealthy actions to prove to yourself that you are right. Yep, you’re right that’s it’s too hard and that you can’t do it if that’s what you believe, you are right. You can always find proof of whatever you want because you will seek it out – doesn’t mean that you will be allowing yourself to live with full joy and wellness, however you will be right. 😉
- Lack of Faith and Belief – If you do not believe in yourself and your abilities then you will not follow through and choose health and wellness over your unhealthy lifestyle. If you do not have faith in the wisdom of your body and it’s natural, inherent ability to repair itself then you will not believe that you can achieve the body of your dreams.
- Lack of Self-Love – When you do not love yourself as you would love a cherished loved one or best friend you will not value yourself enough to choose healthy actions over unhealthy actions. It truly is just as easy to choose the actions that will give you the outcome of health as it is to choose the action that will contribute to your dis-ease, both are actions, paths, however you will not be inspired to choose health when you are lacking in self-love.
These are just a few things that can get in the way of you allowing yourself to lose weight. If you were to simply eat only when hungry, stick mainly to whole foods, use portion control, replace all soda with water (and drink 8 glasses or 100 oz a day of pure water), and walk 20-30 minutes a day non-stop, then you would see results. These are choices though, choices that you can make today, or you can choose to continue making choices that keep you where you are or worsen your condition.
Love and Allow
When you love yourself and get out of your own way you can simply allow the fat to drop from your body, lose weight, and feel great. This is a process, not a magical quick-fix pill, however it’s a consciously fit way to get what you want, if you want to live in a healthy, toned, strong, sexy, feel-good body, that is… a body that maintains a healthy weight and is fun to live in.
Shine ON!! 🙂
