Are you ready?

We have all been there...

Whether your a male or a female you have on occassion had that special event that is looming over your shoulder and you think to yourself, "Will I be able to fit into that dress/suit"? Your next thought is "Nope! I need to lose weight and FAST"!

Ok, so there are diet pills, lowfat recipes, fasting techniques, hours of strenuous exercise routines etc...but none of these strategies will work if you don't want them to! So now your thinking, why wouldn't I WANT them to?

What most people don't do, is prepare themselves properly for the task. This I can tell you is probably the biggest reason people can't lose the weight they want. It's all MENTAL!

STEP 1: Take a look at yourself in the mirror...who are you losing weight for? Is it for this ONE special occasion? Are you doing it for that ONE special person? The only person you should be losing weight for is yourself!!

STEP 2: Have a plan! Ever hear the saying, "Fail to plan, plan to fail?" Think about how much weight you want to lose and how quickly is SAFE for you to lose it. Most likely you didn't gain that extra 30 lbs in a week, so don't expect that you could lose it in a week either.

Whether you decide to cut the carbs, run a marathon, hype up on diet pills or one of the many other options don't waste your time if you are not in the mind frame for the challenge.

The bottom line is, there are many avenues out there to guide and help you to lose weight. They all worked for someone or they wouldn't be trying to advertise to others. The big difference it worked for them and not you is because they were READY.

The only obstacle to reaching your goal, is YOU!
