Is your current start point stopping you from getting started?

Let me ask in another way…….

𝐈𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐣𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐧𝐞𝐲 𝐚𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐝 𝐒𝐓𝐎𝐏𝐏𝐈𝐍𝐆 𝐘𝐎𝐔 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐠𝐞𝐭𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐫𝐭𝐞𝐝?

The reason I ask this is because when you have been coaching people for as long as I have you gain a certain level of experience that enables you to understand peoples thought process at the start of a weight loss journey.

𝐖𝐢𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐝𝐨𝐮𝐛𝐭 𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐛𝐢𝐠𝐠𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐮𝐠𝐠𝐥𝐞𝐬 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐚 𝐥𝐨𝐭 𝐨𝐟 𝐩𝐞𝐨𝐩𝐥𝐞 𝐢𝐬 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐨 𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐦𝐬 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐲 𝐨𝐟 𝐡𝐨𝐰 𝐥𝐨𝐧𝐠 𝐢𝐬 𝐫𝐞𝐪𝐮𝐢𝐫𝐞𝐝 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐦 𝐭𝐨 𝐚𝐜𝐡𝐢𝐞𝐯𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐢𝐫 𝐠𝐨𝐚𝐥.

The reality is for ‘most’ people it will take months and quite often years to get to a point that they desire and it may surprise you to hear me say that but it is the harsh truth.

I talked about this recently but if an individual has spent years slowly getting out of shape then it will take around about the same amount of time to reverse the damage, IF YOU DO IT RIGHT!

This is where so many peoples ‘quick fix’ mind set cripples their progress because they aren’t prepared to play the long game which in turn keeps them on that big merry go round…….

SOUND FAMILIAR?

This brings be onto the inspiring lady you see in this post Amy Howell.

Amy started with us back in July 2018 incredible nervous, apprehensive and feeling overwhelmed by her start point.

Achieving her end goal at the time felt like a million miles away BUT It wasn’t a million miles away it was just under 3 years!

Amy achieved incredible 𝟔 𝐒𝐓𝐎𝐍𝐄 𝐖𝐄𝐈𝐆𝐇𝐓 𝐋𝐎𝐒𝐒 and 𝟏𝟓 𝐈𝐍𝐂𝐇 𝐖𝐀𝐈𝐒𝐓 𝐑𝐄𝐃𝐔𝐂𝐓𝐈𝐎𝐍 over the 3 years.

Let me ask you one more question?…

𝐇𝐨𝐰 𝐦𝐚𝐧𝐲 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞𝐬 𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐥𝐚𝐬𝐭 𝟑 𝐲𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐬 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐡𝐚𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐞 ‘𝐪𝐮𝐢𝐜𝐤 𝐟𝐢𝐱’ 𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐝𝐬𝐞𝐭 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐮𝐞𝐝 𝐭𝐨 𝐟𝐚𝐢𝐥?

If yes then just think where you would be today if you had done it properly just like Amy.

If you are FINALLY going to achieve your weight loss goal and be in a position where you are so much fitter, leaner, confident and all around more confident person, then I can’t stress enough the importance of having the following approach…

“𝐀𝐩𝐩𝐥𝐲 𝐩𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞, 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐢𝐭𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐬𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐲 𝐭𝐨 𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐭𝐡𝐲 𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 & 𝐧𝐮𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐫 𝐚 𝐬𝐮𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐞𝐝 𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐨𝐝 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞”
