How Would Your Life Change?

If you can snap your fingers and lose every pound you wanted to, resulting in being at your ideal weight, how would your life change? Well, some things would not change at all, some would change immediately and some may take some time.

Losing weight would NOT result in any change of the love your family, friends, animals and special people in your life feel for you. “Unconditional love” is, well, unconditional, meaning that the weight you are matters zilch.

Immediate changes? LOTS: the clothes you can fit into, the amount of energy you feel, how much younger you appear, how much less pain is present in your weight bearing joints such as the hips and knees, eliminating medications for the co-morbidities of weight control, etc.

Some things that may take some time to change? Employment opportunities/job enhancement, perhaps increasing self-esteem and confidence, coming off all medications, etc.

Now let’s switch the narrative to how your life would change by eating/drinking a derailing food or beverage source: How do these inanimate objects change your life? Well, in the immediate short term they sure taste good, satisfy a need for a “treat”/reward, However, in the long term the contributing factors to poor weight control change your life for the worse.

Write down the things that would change positively for you if you accomplished your weight control goals. Look at that list and remember why the difficult journey to get there is so worth it.
