Before We Go Further
Let’s summarize this section.
We started this course by identifying why it is so difficult for you to exert control and willpower over your choices when it comes to food/exercise. Hopefully you have more insight into this.
Forgive yourself for all the past failures. Praise yourself for not giving up.
Move forward but come up with a clear plan of how this time will be different.
Check your motivation. Realize you must be intrinsically motivated for this to work.
Check your readiness to change. If you aren’t ready yet think about what you need to do to get to there.
Get clear about what you are willing to change. Write it down in your journal.
Set some short term goals. This can be a combo of pounds lost, inches lost, a feeling of confidence, a physical goal like running a 5K, etc. Establish a time frame and a plan.
Feeling motivated? Let’s keep going.
