Sacrifices

If you are serious about losing weight, then you are going to have to make sacrifices. If you aren't willing to give up some things, you will NOT be successful.

I have clients who tell me they just can't give up certain things, a big one being alcohol. To me, that just shows that they are not serious about losing weight and that they don't really want it bad enough. To get results you WILL have to make some changes and do things that you may not like or want to do!

Trust me, if it were up to me, I would eat bread and cereal and sweets all day long! I'd eat McDonald's french fries and eat skittles every day(in fact, I used to do just that)! I've had to change a LOT of things in the past few years and give up some of my favorite things in order to be healthy and stay lean. But it is worth it. As I love to say, "Nothing tastes better than being fit feels!!"

So... maybe you'll have to give up a 1/2 hour of sleep in the morning to get up and eat breakfast. Breakfast is soo important, but many people complain that they don't have time to eat breakfast. Make time!

You might have to give up your morning Starbuck's cappucino or frappucino (or whatever those drinks are) or the Mt. Dew you drink with lunch every day. You will probably have to give up going out and drinking every weekend. You will have to spend some extra time preparing foods for the week, chopping up veggies and making your lunch and snacks for the next day.

It's not always enough to just say, "I want to lose weight", or even just exercise. It takes a lot of work and *planning * to get the results you want. If you aren't willing to put in the work, you aren't going to be successful. It's just the way it is. How bad do you want it????
