PART 3 of 5: Start Here — Finding Your Weight Loss “Why”

HEART PLAN weight loss logo

The truth is, the world doesn’t need another weight loss program because weight RE-GAIN is the number one health problem in America. They don’t address it because their weight loss programs create the weight RE-GAIN problem in the first place.

With ALL THE KNOWN SERIOUS ILLNESSES THAT ACCOMPANY EXCESS WEIGHT, those commercial weight loss programs are the cause, not the solution, of weight related illnesses. In which case you can’t trust anything they are trying to sell you to put into your body. You need to steer yourself away from them…far away from them.

So what should you do? Start with Your HEART.
Weight loss programs all start in the wrong place — your body. They quickly get you doing things to rapidly change your body. That is why, in the end, they always fail.

The RE-GAIN programs forget you have a brain. And a heart, most of all.

Foremost, permanent weight loss runs through these, the grand motivators of your life. If a program doesn’t address these FIRST and every day along your path to less weight, it doesn’t matter what they tell you to do. Sooner or later you’ll just quit doing it. You’ll quit…which is what you and the vast majority end up doing.

Start by rejecting the outworn and unproductive idea that weight loss is all about calories. It isn’t, not as the first step. Nor is it about lost pounds. Weight loss is about your dreams.

When you reach out to live your dreams, to clarify and discover your “WHY”… why are you REALLY trying to lose weight… not only will you likely to stay on a program, but your are much more likely to keep the weight off permanently. With that, all those who love and depend upon you will also be benefitted… the world becomes a better, more joyous space for us all, because you are fully in it.

Permanent weight loss, the kind that remolds your body and reshapes your life, BEGINS in your heart.

When you are trying to lose 20 pounds or more, the challenges you face are many, and many faceted. It is much more than severely restricting your calories for several days.

Weight loss begins when you get out of bed in the morning, and ends when you go back to sleep at night.

In between you will make countless choices that affect your weight. Some are obvious, like what you do or do not eat. Others are much less obvious, but still important factors in your weight loss, like how much sleep you get and how you handle stress.

Boyd, a recovering Attorney, turned to weight loss research 20 years ago when he lost his mother to the lifelong effects of obesity. He has spent the ensuing years searching the science, and formulating a comprehensive metabolic map of the body — the only complete map of its kind. The map reveals the causes and effects of obesity and related chronic lifestyle diseases. It shows the only proven pathways to preventing and losing excess weight. From that unique foundation, he and his team created a weight loss education program that has helped tens of thousands to lose weight and keep it off. Plus, they created innovative and fun fitness and nutrition education programs for elementary school children, proven to reduce the early bio-markers for childhood obesity. HEART PLAN is a collection of his observations over the years of the emotional impact and motivational challenges nearly everyone faces when trying to keep lost weight off permanently.

    I do know from experience that the slower you loose the weight the better If you are doing it right and making the life change you don’t gain it back instantly.

  2. I also joined Minimins it’s great ! I love reading the different topics , ideas and support of the food here is just amazing !

    So far I have lost 1 stone and a quarter kilo , which is fantastic and just makes me even more eager to shed the rest and be slim and happy!
