Don't Wait For A New Year's Resolution to Get Fit!

Real Estate Agent with Brighton, Mi - Keller Williams

Many of us wait until there is a fresh start, a new year, to think about getting healthy whether it be eating right or starting the long overdue exercise program. Let's all break tradition and kick start a new healthy you before 2010. I read a great newsletter my personal trainer recently sent out and I think it helps get us in the right frame a mind to make a change in our lifestyle now ... right this minute. The newsletter was written by Lori Murphy of 


Change your Mind Change your Weight

Weight loss starts in your mind. Until you change the way you

think about yourself and what role food plays in your world you will

always be battling weight. I read a book recently called "What to Say

When You Talk to Yourself". In this book, the author talks about what to say to

yourself when you sit down to eat. Here are a few:

  • I am in control of myself in every way, at all times in every situation.
  • Each time I sit down to eat, I reaffirm my determination to achieve my goal by never giving in and eating right.
  • Whether eating in or eating out I really enjoy eating less.
  • I never feel like I have to eat all the food in front of me. I only eat what I should.
  • One way to weight loss that is easy for me is less food on my plate less food on my fork.
  • When I sit down to eat I never let anyone else influence me or discourage me in any negative way.
  • The food I eat and the goals I reach are up to me.
  • I am never tempted at anytime to take one more bite that I should.
  • I have set my goal and I am staying with it. I have turned meal time into achievement time.  

Write these affirmations on a card and say them to yourself before each

meal. Talking to yourself and affirming that you will reach your health

and weight loss goals are the key to your success!
