No matter who you are, your WHY is the one constant that will guide you toward fulfilment in your life and work.
Your WHY is what sets you apart from everyone else. It’s your purpose. It’s what inspires you to take action.
In the words of German philosopher Frederick Nietzsche, “He who has a why can endure any how”.
Knowing your WHY is the important first step in figuring out your HOW to achieve the goals that excite you and create a life you enjoy living (versus merely surviving!). In fact, only when you know your WHY will you find the courage to take the risks needed to get ahead and most importantly stay motivated when the going gets tough.
YOUR WHY WHEN IT COMES TO WEIGHT LOSS
The first thing I need to tell you that there still is NO ‘magic pill’ for weight loss! Although some of you are being led to believe nowadays that there is a magic skinny tea & coffee, weight loss shots, foot pads, weight loss insoles for shoes … the list could go on … I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the only thing you are going to lose with any of these is your money!
There is no easy solution. In the words of Diana Ross, “you can’t just sit there and wait for people to give you that golden dream, you’ve got to get out there and make it happen for yourself.”
You need to connect with your WHY and put in the hard work in to achieve your goals. When the going gets tough you need to reconnect with your WHY.
WHY DID YOU START THIS JOURNEY IN THE FIRST PLACE?
- To lose body fat and feel happy with yourself?
- Be as healthy as you possibly can be?
- Be a great role model to your family?
- Improve your mental well being?
- Increase your self esteem and confidence?
- Not be ill?
- Live a happy life?
YOU insert your WHYS
If your WHY is super important to you NOTHING will deter you. You will move mountains to obtain your goals.
I asked a number of my recent DROPiT21 participants what their WHY was to signing up for the programme and this is what they said:
Lisa: “I signed up to DROPiT21 3 weeks before my 60th birthday to lose 6lbs which had slowly accumulated mainly around my middle. After 1 week I was stunned I’d lost 3lbs despite eating what appeared to be more than usual, then the following 2 weeks lost the rest. I felt fantastic, had more energy and every morning exercise made my day start with a boost – it really was fantastic for me. Loved the recipes and especially found it helpful and fun having a group of like-minded ladies striving for the same goals – to be fitter and in better shape. It was hugely noticeable after 3 weeks and I had a great 60th too!”
Julie: “I joined up to DROPiT21 because I was fed up! Always battling the lose weight/gain weight treadmill and I knew lifestyle changes needed to be made – I just didn’t know where to start. after trying every “diet” plan ever invented I needed something sustainable. After 3 weeks I noticed a massive improvement in my sleep and my eczema. On top of a 10lb weight loss! I literally felt unstoppable!”
Sarah: “I needed to do something about my weight and wanted something that would change habits. Really liked the group atmosphere and seeing everyone’s struggles and successes really kept me going too. I lost 13lb in the 3 weeks and felt less bloated and sluggish.”
Jill: “I signed up to lose weight and inches. I achieved that in spades. But to my surprise I also enjoyed the daily workout and I also was given the knowledge not only how to lose weight but also how to keep it off!”
Katy: “I decided to sign up as I was approaching my 40th birthday and thought if I could hit it feeling good about myself, it would ease the pain of the number! I lost the lbs and inches and dropped a dress size. What I wasn’t expecting was how energised I felt each day, plus the clearer skin, brighter eyes and better sleep”
Donna: “I signed up to help improve my eating and cut my sugar addiction. I didn’t expect much weight loss but was shocked to lose more that 1/2 a stone and felt so clean. I loved the loss of bloat.”
Rachel: “I was told by my doctor I was pre- diabetic! Losing weight and changing my diet has stabilised my blood sugars, and I feel so much better for that.”
HAVE YOU ACHIEVED YOUR WHY?
If not, then maybe it’s time today to DIG DEEP and ask yourself is that WHY still important to me? If so then make today the day you take a step closer to achieving it!
