When it comes to losing weight, what do you think is the biggest contributing factor?
The food you eat?
The amount of exercise you do?
You just have to look at the latest series of The Biggest Loser to get your answer: It’s attitude!
I’ve worked with many ‘losers’ over the past 15 years and I can tell you from experience that if you don’t have the right attitude, you just won’t succeed. The way you think effects the way you feel, and the way you feel effects the amount of effort you put in.
So, back to The Biggest Loser. Remember Nick? He was the guy voted off in week 3. Boy, did he have an attitude! He’s got people around him, trying to push him, trying to get the best out of him so that he can succeed.
But what does he do? He fights them. The trainers are trying to help him but his ego won’t allow him to accept that help. He’s more concerned with ‘not getting pushed around’, than actually getting on with the job and losing weight. I mean, who are the experts here?
Compare this with Pete. A guy who, I’m sure doesn’t like being pushed around, but accepts that he’s there for a reason. He has a problem and there are people there willing to help him. All he has to do is listen to what they say, then do it!
Well, the results are there for all to see. As each contestant gets voted off, they show a ‘Where are they now’ clip. When Nick was shown, he had the same attitude and also looks like he may have put on more weight. Pete on the other hand looks fantastic.
So what has this got to do with every person on this planet that wants to lose weight? Change the way you think and you will succeed! Each day when you wake up, don’t think about the foods you’re going to miss out on or the exercise you have to do. Think about how good you’re going to feel, how great you’re going to look, and how better life will be!
There are many people out there that want you to succeed and are willing to help you. You just have to provide the right attitude!
