I just got off the phone with one of my clients, she is doing really well, and consistently has lost between 2-4lbs every week for 10 weeks now, she is over the moon as you can imagine!
She was telling me about how she was going to go shopping this weekend to get some new clothes for when her partner returns home, after being away with work for 2 months! Can you imagine his reaction seeing his wife 20 lbs lighter!
Anyway, I wanted to share with you one of the reasons she has done so well.
We are stood, face to face, about 3 feet from each other.
I throw 20 tennis balls at you, really hard and fast, not giving a chance to focus on one thing.
What do you think happens? Yep, you will be lucky if you catch one, and you will be pretty panicked. You give up, thinking what was the point in ever trying to catch 20 balls.
Now imagine, I give you plenty of warning, and throw just one tennis ball at you, at a speed you can handle.
What do you think happens? Yep, you are 100 times more likely to catch it. Your confidence goes up, and then you are ready for the next one.
Weight loss is no different to this. Too many people try to do 20 things at once, and then fail because they have too much to do. Or they don't understand each part of what they have to do. They then give up, as it seems too hard.
The key to all of this is to master one thing at a time. Catch one tennis ball at a time. First tackle breakfast. Then tackle your workouts. Then tackle your mindset. Then social situations.
Don't get side tracked, and only move on when the last discipline becomes second nature to you.
We teach all of this over at SWIFT, if you would like a trial session to get your plan of action together, here's the link
P.S I am teaching at Chiswick tonight, see you there. Don't worry, I won't be bringing my tennis balls along!
