My Deepest Dieting Fear Conquered: Fat Loss Is Forever…

-

A few weeks ago I mentioned that I’ve finally been able to make the complete transition (my life-long dream) to working from home (or anywhere else I wish to take my laptop)…

But what I never told you is…

During the last year, leading up to this milestone, one of my biggest fears of working from home was “what’s going to happen with my eating habits once I’m operating from home on a full time basis?”

See – as you already know – I’ve had my personal challenges since childhood with my weight, body image, food codependency and a wicked sweet tooth…

I’m quite different from the majority of personal trainers/weight loss coaches who have “always been in shape” – most of them have never lived through the experience of living “a full time battle with your body and mind”…

But I’ve been on the other side and I know exactly what it’s like…

During my adult years – ESPECIALLY with kids in the house – one of my biggest challenges has been ‘being at home on the weekend after a long, busy work week…’

I would simply eat whatever I could get my hands on. Up until about 4 years ago – I couldn’t conquer this demon – it was the last ‘weak point’ that I needed to fix – or so I thought…

During the last 4 years – I did beat that challenge – and weekends were no longer “2 days of uncontrollable binge eating” – they were under complete and natural control and in line with my goals…

But I had never been home EVERY DAY… And when I realized what this type of challenge this situation might hold for me – it was a bit scary and unsettling… But onward we go…

Well it’s been about 2 and a half months since I started working from home on a full time basis – and I’m quite excited to share… “the final demon has been conquered” – as a matter of fact my state of mind, self awareness and “living in line with my desires” is easier and more natural than I thought it would be…

The goal I set for myself about 5 years ago was to get back to my high school weight of 133lbs – BEFORE I hit the age of 39 – and STAY at that weight – with a body-fat% of no higher than 12%…

Well – my weight is holding an average steady of 133.5lbs with a body-fat% ranging between 9.8 and 11.5 and I’m 38 years young …I DID IT!!

Did this happen “by accident” or just “by itself”? No way… See, this type of ‘change’ doesn’t happen by accident – there are things I did… simple, subtle yet powerful things… – that ANYONE can do (yet most people don’t do – because they are not shown how) – to make this kind of self improvement success happen…

And these are precisely the things I’ll be teaching when I open the doors to ‘Every Day Fat Loss’ at the start of 2009. Lots of questions have been coming in via email and on this blog about the program – so I’ll answer some of them here:


What Is ‘Every Day Fat Loss’


-

1 – It is ideal for any woman who has struggled with her weight – and currently desires to get the fat off and keep it off…
-

2 – Even though it’s primarily for women – men can participate as well – and get the results…
-

3 – The program is NOT for the clinically obese. If you fall into this category – you need medical intervention, first and foremost. ‘Every Day Fat Loss’ is not a program for the clinically obese.
-

4 – IT is not “just another e-book”… EDFL is structured to provide the missing elements that have prevented you from achieving fat loss success in the past. This requires more than a book or a PDF, for most people.
-

5 – EDFL will be open to people all over the world – and the tactics will be applicable to the food choices in any country.
-

6 – Exercise is NOT a major part of EDFL. This is not another unrealistic 2-hour per day fitness regime combined with a psychotic bodybuilder diet being disguised as a simple weight loss program.
-

Exercise will be a tiny part of EDFL – I’ll actually be teaching you how to do as little exercise as possible (via online videos) – while still getting the fat off… If you choose to do more, that’s up to you. In today’s busy society – I realize every minute of the day is valuable – especially to the busy women of the world.

Well – that’s all I have for today. I hope my story of success has energized you and given you hope for what you are capable of – and what powers are inside you waiting to be tapped into…

Ok – about this Fat Loss Disc…

2 weekends ago – me and Jeri-Jo (my wife) took the kids to the park to run and play, etc… We usually grab a soccer ball or a football – but this day – I grabbed a frisbee…

$7 Disc Causes Safe & Fun Fat Loss

I’ve always loved playing frisbee – ever since I started throwing one as a youngster. During my teen years we’d throw it so much we had to start using glow in the dark frisbees – because we just didn’t want to stop, even when the sun went down…

We never got tired because it was endless fun. Seeing who could throw it farther, faster, trickier – and of course who could catch it behind the back, between the legs, behind the head – you name it…

Coming back to the present… now in my older youth – it’s still just as fun – but now I have the joy of teaching my kids how to throw and catch a frisbee – and they’re loving it…

We all broke a good sweat, burned a bunch of calories – even got a little good muscle soreness from all the different movements involved in throwing, chasing and catching this magical little disc…

I was so back into it – I ran to Target during the week and picked up the MaxFlight from Wham-O that you see pictured above (I got mine in black though) – and it cost just a few cents over $7. Now how’s that for a fun, effective and portable piece of fat burning cardio equipment that the whole family can use??

We went back to the park again this past weekend – and did our ‘Frisbee-Fit’ workout with the MaxFlight I picked up… If you want to get yours – just go to Amazon – they have a ton of frisbees…

My main point here is… effective exercise and weight loss – doesn’t have to be boring, monotonous or expensive – as you an see from my perfect example above…

Be creative, have fun – and “think outside the gym”…

Do you have any good alternatives to traditional, stereotypical types of cardio exercise? (You can’t say ’sex’ – because I just said it ;-) )

Whatever ideas you have – just list them below – by clicking on ‘Comment’…
