Focus on WHY you want to Lose Weight

Published on: 2017-08-25 9:00:00 AM | Motivational Letters

A friend of mine has tried many diets, but usually quit on himself because the joy of food trumped losing weight. Recently, however, he developed type 2 diabetes. He knew his weight was what caused the diabetes and he wanted to be healthy long-term for the sake of his children.

They have pre-determined that they are unable to stop snacking. When you choose to see yourself as incompetent or incapable, you will experience incompetence and incapability.

Our Purpose

As I was reviewing one of my favorite bedtime books I was once again struck by the simplicity and directness of our reasons to be alive and to continually attempt to change. The book is titled “HIT” which stands for ‘Humans in Training’ by Jay D. Allen. I’m hoping the author would not mind me passing on some significant passages to you. There is an excellent quote by George Bernard Shaw which states, “People are always blaming their circumstances for what ...
