Independance from obesity
On this independence day here are 5 steps you can take to win the battle of the bulge, just like how soldiers work, taking inspiration from them.
1.) Find your goal or your enemy, just like soldier
You must choose your goal be it weight loss, reducing diabetes, BP, reduce cholesterol, acidity, thyroid or just healthy eating. Then all you have to do is just show up your duty.
2.) Choose your leader
You need a strong leader who can point you in the right direction. Whether it is a personal trainer or nutritionist – you MUST have a strong leader that can teach you everything you need to reach your goal.
3.) Build your army or team
A team who will train, work and be behind you and NOT leave you till you reach your goal, mainly will support you like a team. Once you’ve adapted this new lifestyle, take people with you and make your unit stronger. Pass along your knowledge to save as many people as you can.
4.) Train for battle
You must treat every day as a lesson. Every meal, every workout and every thought has a purpose, with no time wasted. Take High calorie food and laziness as enemy which will always taunt us so we must be trained and ready to win the war. Training will make us stronger and we will find the enemy (junk food, inactivity) has less of an impact on us when we are disciplined in our training.
5.) Always be ready
We have achieved our goal doesn’t mean we tell all our troops to go home. Soldiers don’t quit training, quit learning, and quit looking at plans to defend our country. Yet, when we reach our weight loss goals, we often “send the troops home”. We take down our defenses as if there is no more enemy. That is why so many people regain their weight also so many truly live in the middle of real battle all their lives. Some people may battle with their health all their lives too.
The fact is: You can either win the battle all your life OR continue losing the battle all your life.
Just because you reach your goal, don’t quit training, learning and protecting your temple. Be ready, be strong and NEVER let your guard down.
Is it time you yelled FREEDOM!? Is it time you claim your independence? Let this independence day be a day you celebrate as the day you became FREE....free from unhealthy lifestyle.
