As much as I love motivational quotes, I wish I could claim that as my own. But I can't. It belongs to one of the most inspiring people I've ever had the privilege to hear speak. His name is Steven Furtick, and if you've never heard him, you need to. Seriously. Because what he speaks is TRUTH and it resonates as such in the deepest parts of who you are. Google him and find that out for yourself!
This week, I had a survey on my site that 11 different people answered. I asked which weight loss tips have been most helpful to you. Pretty generic question, I thought. I included as the answer choices several of the most recommended weight loss tips that the medical community advocates, with a body of research behind them supporting their success. And the results of the survey showed pretty much what I figured it would. More than half of those who responded said that portion/calorie control, increased exercise, and drinking more water are the things that most help them when they work at losing weight.
So here's my question...if we KNOW the right things to do...WHEN are we going to do them?
My friends, this is not rocket science. This is not difficult. It's not. It's straight forward, simple...and we KNOW the right things to do! We (and I mean ME!) just make excuses for not doing them!
We don't have time to exercise. We don't like to drink water. We're still hungry when the plate isn't filled to overflowing. There's no time to pack a lunch, so I'll buy some fast food today. Sweet tea is made with water...it can't be that different, right? WRONG!
I am sad to say that it took me nearly 25 years to make the decision that enough was enough, that it was time to limit my calories, control my portion sizes, drink more water, and exercise. How long is it going to take you?
The right time to do the right thing is right NOW. Make today your new beginning! You won't regret it, I promise!
