What's On Your List?
We're talking about Dave's weight loss list. I'm using it as an example that I want to make. But first, let me pose a question,
How many of you think you could lose weight and/or tone up WITHOUT buying "THE" book, investing into "THE" diet program or joining "THE" weight loss challenge or anything at all except what you know to be true about your body?
You can lose weight and be in the best shape of your life with no outside influence. All you need is you. Nothing else. In fact, all you really have to do is write down the FIVE things that you know will cause a drop in weight. Do those things for 30 days. You'll lose weight 100% of the time. Let me tell you about Dave. He's a friend that decided to lose weight on his own. This is what his list looked like,
- Stop eating large meals at night.
- Drink more water.
- Cut out sodas
- Cut down on carbs
- Start walking every day.
That was Dave's list. He didn't consult with any third party references. Didn't make any purchases. He just took what he already knew. You can do this with anything. You will likely have a different list. Dave actually DID those things for 30 days. Guess what? He noticed a significant drop in weight.
Here's my point...
I think anyone who wants to lose weight (or get any kind of results with anything) could -- starting RIGHT now armed with nothing more than what they already know and a little bit (or a lot) of self-discipline. No need to buy the latest and greatest book (unless there is). No need to purchase the special food that comes with the special diet (unless there is). No need to join an MLM (unless there is). No need to get on "autoship" to buy yummy weight loss shakes (unless there is). No need to even go work out at the gym (unless any one or more of those things are on your list of 5 things to do). Unless it's on your list, you don't need it.
Here's what you need to do...
Turn off the noise, make your list, and get busy! Stay disciplined for 30 days at a time. Then reflect, adjust and make it happen (again). For a mass majority of you, all you need is what you already know, and what you've written on your list.
Here's my list
