First Component of Weight Loss


Any true body transformation starts with self-discovery. It is an inside-out approach method. By this I mean that you must honestly analyze what your strengths and weaknesses are. Also, what makes you and your body what it is today? Do not get me wrong. I am not a big advocate of analyzing every feeling that may come out of you. From my 15 years of experience in fitness training, the barriers of attitude, values, and self doubt, are the number one reasons why people fail in this program. Breaking through negative attitudes and self doubt will truly transform you to a newer you. In truth, it's a process that is crucial to overcoming self-set limitations. One has got to look inside for these answers This is the biggest and the most important part of a weight loss program, and the most difficult, because everything starts in your head and mind first.

From my experience, a true transformation starts and finishes with how you see yourself. Attitudes come from your values and belief system about yourself and the whole world. I am not a psychologist but I have designed some exercises and tools that you can use when going through this program. These tools will aid you in discovery of your attitudes, beliefs, and values. True transformation starts with true reflection about yourself.

I read this morning in a fitness magazine that the number one reason why people do not work out on a regular basis is due to lack of time and not due to a lack of motivation I totally disagree, in my opinion; it is solely a lack of motivation. In fact it is a lack of motivation to make time.

To make transformation to your body is not a question of capability but of motivation. For example let's look at some extreme motivation. If someone put a gun to your head and said you need to lose four pounds of fat this week or else pay with your life I will bet that this type of motivation would have resulted in the loss of four-pounds of fat for that week. For most people it is a must to into get in shape and for others it is I might get into shape.

For a transformation to occur you need an intense and urgent motivation commitment. The main focus in body transformation is not if you make a change that you can do it, but, that you will do it. In transforming your body, the individual has to have a sense of intense urgency, dedication, or discipline, to follow the program all the way through to success.
