" IF THERE'S NO MEDICAL REASON HONEY, THEN THE PROBLEM IS YOU "
Monday, May 30, 2011
(This is a my recent response to SLIM135's "FRUSTRATED" blog. After writing it, I thought it might possibly be of benefit to someone so here it is):
"HEY GURL THIS IS MY RESPONSE TO YOUR "FRUSTRATED" BLOG IN ATTEMPS TO INSPIRE, INFORM AND TO ENCOURAGE YOU...
FIRST CONSULT WITH YOUR DOCTOR HONEY TO DETERMINE IF THERE IS A MEDICAL ISSUE AS TO WHY YOU'RE NOT LOSING THE WEIGHT. YOUR DOCTOR CAN MOST OF THE TIME DETERMINE AS WELL IF WHAT WORKOUT / WEIGHTLOSS PROGRAM YOU ARE DOING IS RIGHT FOR YOU AT YOUR CURRENT FITTNESS AND HEALTH LEVEL.
FOLLOW YOUR DOCTORS SUGGESTIONS AND WORK CLOSELY TOGETHER WITH HIM/HER TO COME UP WITH A COMPREHENSIVE ALL ENCOMPASSING WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM THAT'S RIGHT AND MORE IMPORTANTLY THAT'S SAFE FOR YOU FROM START TO FINISH.
IN ADDITON, AT THIS POINT IF YOUR DOCTOR DETERMINES THAT THERE IS NO MEDICAL REASON WHY YOU'RE NOT LOSING WEIGHT ON YOUR PRESENT WEIGHT LOSS AND SHAPE UP PROGRAM, THEN YOU NOW KNOW THE REASON YOU HAVEN'T LOST ALL ALONG...
" H A S. B E E N. Y O U. G U R L ! "
THEN IF THIS IS INDEED THE PROBLEM, I SUGGEST THE FOLLOWING CORRECTIVE MEASURES HONEY:
1. 'DO THE WHOLE PROGRAM / PLAN'
Make sure you follow the weightloss / fitness program you want to do EXACTLY as its designed. Do not edit it in any way unless there are provisions or instructions to do so.
2. 'DONT SUGAR COAT'
Often my girlfriends get mad at me because I call s _ _ t like I see it honey. I don't pull no punches gurl whether its in my private life or in dealin with this weightloss thing. The moment that you start to lie to yourself girl and "don't make it as bad as it seem" , you FAIL! Its literally like turning down a dead end road and not bein able to change directions until its way too late. And honey once you begin that flawed journey you most likely ain't commin back to SUCCESS no time soon!
3. 'YOU KNOW WHEN YOU MESSIN UP HONEY'
Self explanitory girl, I'm sure you get the idea wit this one boo sooooooo DON'T EVEN GO THERE GURL N IF U DO WORK QUICKLY TO CHANGE YOUR BAD HABBIT AND GET BACK ON THE WAGON!
4. 'BE BRUTALLY HONEST' or (FEAR NO SCALE)
Lastly, don't ever be afraid of measuring the degree of either your WEIGHTLOSS SUCCESS or your WEIGHTLOSS FAILURE. Girl the SCALE, TAPE MEASURE, HEART RATE MONITOR, STEP COUNTER and whatever informative indicater that they in tha future are gonna invent IS THERE LIKE A MIRROR TO GIVE YOU THE ACCURATE PICTURE OF ALL YOUR HARD, SWEAT DRENCHING WEIGHT LOSS EFFORTS to date. Use this oh sooooo valuable information to study your progress and to maybe consider possibly modifying or editing your program. Or even further still you and your doctor might with the consideration of the data collected, decide to try ANOTHER WEIGHT LOSS APPROACH ENTIRELY. All this evaluation, if not done in the beginning and if not done accurately all along the way (whether the results were GOOD or BAD) would simply be useless and ULTIMATELY WOULD NOT HELP YOU LOSE THE FAT - FURTHER SETTING ALL YOUR WEIGHT LOSS EFFORTS BACK!
WELL HONEY, I HOPE YOU FIND SOME OF MY TAKES ON THIS HELPFUL. THESE SUGGESTIONS HAVE BEEN TAKEN FROM MY OWN SOMETIMES PAINFUL EXPERIENCES IN DEALIN WITH THIS LONG WEIGHTLOSS JOURNEY.
LET ME KNOW IF I CAN BE OF FURTHER ASSISTANCE TO YOU.
TAKE CARE GURL AND GOOD LUCK.
YOUR WEIGHTLOSS GURLFRIEND,

I love your honesty. Last night I was with a group of girls sipping vodka & OJ and eating chips & whining about how their "diet" isn't working and they aren't losing like promised with the program. I was like "really??? Are you kidding me? You aren't working the program, so of course it isn't working for you!" Now I'm the bad guy. So frustrating!

It's said, the truth is the light. Being honest with yourself is very important. If there isn't a medical reason, then one layer of the onion has been peeled away, and you go on to the next reason/explanation/excuse used to keep you from reaching your goals. If it's all in your head, fore the mind is a powerful instrument in doing good and not, then you need to start feeding the mind with the positive thoughts needed to go the next mile. On my journey, as it sounds like on yours, what the mind tells you the body does...so training the mind as well as the body is equally important.
I can think of only one more step in your process. After looking at yourself in the mirror, start building the positive right there. Yes, see yourself as you are but remember that is the result of the past. Now, picture what you want, say what you want, feel the joy of what you're aiming for, get excited by what you are going to do to get there. Remember thought sparks energy, energy begats energy, positive thought turns into positive action (energy).
You're definitely on it girl...Keep up the good work!
