Empowerment and Self-Control - What it Really Takes to get Control of your Weight


Chant the following each day, several times. They are mantras that will save your life -

- The choice to do nothing is still a choice and yields nothing.

- I am responsible for my body. If I don't take responsibility, who will?

- I make choices daily as to how I'm going to fuel my body.

- I will STAY aware

- Choice IS control

Control is what you gain once you realize that no one will take care of you. You might think its ok to live with our grown children when we are infirm, but we both know, you and I, that this isn't the case. We would regret imposing on them, at the prime of their lives. We would resent being infirm and therefore feel sorry for ourselves.

There is no guarantee against illness, but you and I also know that the eating patterns that brought you to this place are going to make you very ill eventually, if you don't change them starting now. You are in the process of growing toward self-healing. And what a wondrous process that is!

You must decide to do that yourself.

It sounds like a negative realization. On the contrary, it will be one of the most freeing moments of wisdom you will ever feel.

BECAUSE - once you realize that your health is up to you and you alone, you are free to move toward healing.

Control gives us the freedom to write our own destiny and dreams. That which we desire, control gives us a shot at. We want to be healthy and only WE ourselves can achieve that goal. No one can take that step to make us healthier. So by developing control functions, we better equip ourselves for the task of whipping our poor bodies into shape.

How many times have you shaken your fist at the heavens, bemoaning your "lack of willpower"? Well, you don't have to do that any longer. We're going to toss the word "willpower" right out on its ear.

Take a moment and examine the word "willpower". It's meaning is clear. It is the power of your will. Many people have a problem narrowing down the word "will". Will can mean many things, but when it all boils down, it is desire, wish, choice and determination. Your "will" is quite simply...CHOICE.

You don't NEED willpower to lose weight. What you NEED is to make a choice.

Once you've done that, simply bow to the incredible wisdom of that choice.
