I have lost almost twenty pounds. Here’s the secret to my weight loss. I’ve recognized that:
Every choice I make has power!
On a morning when I am tired and consider skipping exercise, I think:
Will not exercising this morning get me closer to my healthy weight goal or take me further away from it?
When I reach for a handful of chips, I stop, and ask myself:
Will this handful of chips get me closer to my healthy weight or take me further away from it?
Your power is in every single choice you make!
So, if you want to lose weight and find yourself lunching with a friend. While mulling over your food choices, simply ask yourself ‘Which choice will get me closer to my goal weight?” Pause, and the answer will come. Then you decide whether you will select that choice.
Or if you are a college student and have a paper due on Monday but have just received an invitation to a party this upcoming weekend…simply pause and ask yourself ” what are my goals and which choice will best support my goal?’
We all come equipped with and internal GPS that will lead us to our best self.
But to engage our internal GPS we need to ask it the right question, listen for the answer, and then choose accordingly.
Every choice has power. And with every single choice we choose to whether we will move further away from our goals or get closer to our goals.
That’s the powerful stuff life is made of!
