Never Never Never Give Up. This Is a Journey, Not a Destination.
know many of you wonder if I actually return each an every email that
is sent to me. The answer is yes... short of SPAM, I do reply to every
email. I usually never post them but, I did get one recently that I felt
needed posting. I got this email from a woman whose name I will keep confidential
but, it was a real cry for encouragement I wanted to pass along our dialog
to you because I think it is something we all need to hear at some time
in our lives.
never replied to your emails. I have read them, been inspired by them
and laughed out loud at some of them. I am writing now because I went
without sugar for 3 days completely, I am a vegetarian although I do eat
fish. I don't get a lot of exercise and my portions were way to large.
I read the following back in January and I did as instructed. I will admit
that I did feel better but it got boring. It said that after 3 days you
would begging to "burn " fat stores. I don't think that I lost
weight. I don't remember how I started eating sugar again but I ate things
I didn't even like. I have gained more weight and I am feeling very discouraged.
you for your email.
Let me tell you from my own experience; getting off sugar, managing weight
and getting fit is totally a journey rather than a destination. My weight
has yo-yo'd up and down my entire life. In just the past 4 months I have
totally committed to getting fit. I am 44 and I want the last half of
my life to be the very very best years.
I have found that weight loss and getting fit can be a vicious cycle.
The more weight you gain the worse you feel, the worse you feel the more
you eat and the more you eat the more weight you gain. This can be a real
If you really really really really want to get off sugar and get skinny
as well as fit this is what I suggest.
1.) Make a commitment. Recently a friend of mine sent me the following
quote. It hangs above my desk and I look at it daily. "THE MOMENT
ONE DEFINITELY COMMITS ONESELF, THEN PROVIDENCE MOVES TOO. ALL SORTS OF
THINGS OCCUR TO HELP ONE THAT WOULD NEVER HAVE OTHERWISE OCCURRED.....UNFORESEEN
INCIDENTS, MEETINGS AND MATERIAL ASSISTANCE, WHICH NO MAN COULD HAVE DREAMED
WOULD HAVE COME HIS WAY"
2.) Buddy up
with somebody. Support each other in eating well and exercise. And when
one of you is slipping be there to help the other person out. It can be
a friend, a family member, a trainer(the best option)... anybody who shares
your vision. You do not need to walk this path alone.
3.) Create a spread sheet and keep track of the calorie, carb and fat
counts of everything you eat . And I mean everything. Within that spreadsheet
keep track of all of the exercise you are getting and the calorie burn.
Never miss a day. Make it a habit. I have a great spreadsheet I use and
I can send to you. Just ask. My email is [email protected].
4.) Watch what you eat and limit your portions. Do not self medicate with
food. Only eat when you are hungry not when you are anxious or depressed.
But, first and foremost never starve yourself. This will lock up your
metabolism. Remember this! Eat less more often. Eat 6 small meals per
5.) Exercise daily. Join a gym. Get a trainer. Go for a walk. Make it
a routine. Start your day that way and no other way. Let it become who
you are. You are the person who walks a mile every day first thing in
the morning or you are the person that is in the gym every morning by
6.) Don't weigh yourself every day. Weigh yourself once a month. remember
this is a journey not a destination.
7.) Drink a lot of water. I mean a lot. 96 ounces at least. Yes... you
will be peeing every 15 minutes but, you will also be firing up your metabolism
and flushing the toxins and fat from your system.
8.) Above all... NEVER GIVE UP! You are to valuable and precious to give
up on. You are worth it and you will believe it when you start seeing
results over the next few months. Plus... I will not let you give up...
nor will your partner, family or friends if you get them involved.
I hope this helps. Lord knows I needed to hear it.
PLEASE let me know your progress. I know you can do it. I am doing it.
And if I can so can you.
forget to drink a lot of water while you increase your protein intake.
Drinking water flushes fats out of your system as well as increasing your
metabolism. Instead of soft drinks or powdered drink mixes that are loaded
with chemicals and sugar, I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon
to 32 ounces of water with a sprinkle of Steviva
Brand Stevia Powder. Aside from being less than 2 carbs, you will
get the health benefits that the stevia provides along with the vitamin
C and electrolytes that lemon have. You can substitute limes for lemons
if you get bored and break the routine even more by adding a little unsweetened
cranberry juice. Click
