Not Sure Where To Start? Start Here!
If your New Years resolution is to become fitter and healthier or to lose the extra weight you gained from excess stress caused by COVID-19 lockdowns (which were made even worse by holiday eating and drinking), but you're so overwhelmed with all of the information out there, and you don't know where to start, you're not alone.
Ninety-nine percent of the emails I receive asking for help or seeking advice about losing weight and getting fit are from people like you and me who have tried everything, yet no matter what they do or how hard they work out, they just can't seem to lose weight. Losing weight and getting fit should be easy. There is a diet for every minute of the day: high carb, low carb, Keto, Weight Watchers, vegan, plant-based, pescatarian... you name it, there is a plan for it.
Fitness is even worse: CrossFit, yoga, Zumba, Pilates, do this-eat that... yikes, it's no wonder we are so confused when it comes to exactly what we need do to reach our health and fitness goals, and most importantly, improve the quality of our lives, and be happier. After all, what good is being in tip-top shape, leaner, and stronger if you're not happier or enjoying your life?
TODAY is THE DAY to put an end to the confusion! Time to let go of the past and embrace your new beginning!
Achieving your health, weight loss, and fitness goals is easy when you have a specific plan that is geared to help you reach your goals faster. And the right tools to make it easier.
I've been where you are, and I know exactly how it feels to be stuck, despite my best efforts. I struggled with food and exercise addiction. Seriously, I was willing to do anything, so I became vegan as a way to control my weight and worked out for hours every day.
I even began bodybuilding and powerlifting, and I taught three hours on high impact aerobics every day. My workouts made CrossFit look like a walk in the park, yet my hunger and cravings only got worse, and my muscles grew so big I could no longer pull my jeans over my thighs.
Growing my body bigger was never my intention. I was already plenty strong, and, to be honest, it feels really good to be strong. It's empowering. But until I understood how my metabolism worked, I couldn't lose the weight. Truthfully, I lost hope.
I thought weight loss and improving my body was for everyone, but it wasn't possible for me, even though as a successful personal trainer, I was transforming bodies every day... all but mine.
I was the chubby toddler they used to call "Rolly Polly” who grew up to become the big-boned teen. No one would be honest with me, so they’d say I was big-boned. And I use to tell myself the same thing. I also thought my higher than usual body weight was because of muscle I gained working out all of the time. While muscle does weigh more than fat, it wasn’t muscle that was making me weigh more than I wanted to. It was the excess weight I was carrying around that was keeping me stuck, and in order to make a change I had to make some changes, start doing things differently.
I had to learn how to overcome the obstacles that were affecting my metabolism, keeping me from losing weight, and burning off the big bulge of fat that hung over my pants. I used to pinch and squeeze every time I looked in the mirror and say, "If only I could get rid of this. Then I'll be happy." You know how the story goes...
The truth is that real, lasting change starts within yourself and is more doable than you think once you take that first step.
DECIDE you're not going to live this way anymore. Become so sick and tired of being sick and tired that you're willing to let go of the old, unhealthy habits that are holding you back. Embrace the new, healthier habits that guarantee you will reach your goals, whatever they may be.
BELIEVE that it will work for you. If I had a dollar for every time I’m asked, “will it work for me?" I could build a country club! That depends on you.
Will you do what it takes?
Will you be consistent and continue to repeatedly and frequently do the right things?
Will you focus on progress, not perfection, so when you fall off-plan (and you will, that's guaranteed), you'll get up every time you fall. Work on becoming faster at getting back on track at your next meal versus allowing the "stinking thinking" to rule your life and keep you stuck.
If you believe you can, YOU WILL! It all starts with your belief system, so make sure yours is strong!
BEGIN! Where, you ask?
If your goal is weight loss, having the right plan and tools makes it easy. That's why I developed the LynFit The Metabolic Weight Loss Plan. Yes, that's the one that can help you lose one pound a day and keep it off, no matter how old you are or how slow your metabolism is. And, if you have thyroid problems (I do, I'm hypothyroid), it's probably the only way you can lose weight. My plan is especially effective if you've lost weight and regained it, are more than 10 pounds overweight, menopausal (and for men, andropause), or you struggle with hunger and cravings. This plan makes it easy.
All of the obstacles I faced when it came to losing weight became my purpose, and by God's grace I've turned my weight loss problems and struggles into my passion. It's my life’s purpose, and I've devoted the last 30 years of my life helping people like you and me lose weight, get in shape, reduce back, hip, or knee pain, and improve every aspect of health... physically and spiritually. And I want to help you too! If you're ready to lose weight, become fit, or you need more energy and want to improve your eating habits, start right now and make today YOUR SOMEDAY!
Start today, right now, and remove the word "can't" from your vocabulary.
Swap it for “I can” and remind yourself of that every day. Are you ready to transform your body and mind?
Its the first day of the rest of your LEANER, STRONGER, HEALTHIER, and HAPPIER life.
You are not alone. I've got your back and I will walk alongside you on this journey. One thing is guaranteed...YOU WONT BE SORRY!
