What Does It Take To Change?

Many people have to reach a place where they are so uncomfortable with the pain of staying there that it outweighs the fear of changing. Some reach a point where they say, “I just can’t live like this anymore.” The good thing about reaching that point is that you are more likely do something about it. Often when someone doesn’t have enough pain or discomfort, then it doesn’t motivate them to take action.

The most common things women tell me when they finally get the courage to call is, “I saw a picture of myself and I couldn’t believe my body has turned into this.” Or “Someone asked me when my baby was due and I am not pregnant!” Or “I feel like I am 20 years older than I am and I am starting to look like my mother who is not healthy or in shape.” Or “I am the heaviest weight I’ve ever been and every time I step on the scale I tell myself that is the heaviest I will let myself get to.” Or “I kept telling myself I can do this on my own but it’s not happening.”

Usually when someone reaches this point, they realize that if they don’t do something now, they might be in big trouble later with their health. They start to get really concerned about the next 10 years of their life, yet some can only think about being concerned with the next 3 months.

I heard a statement over 20 years ago that really impacted my life and it was, “You will never change what you tolerate.” That is so true! If you accept it in your life, you won’t change it. But if you say, “Enough is enough, I am not going to live like this anymore,” then possibly you will muster up enough courage to do something about it. If you don’t, one more month turns into another year, then all a sudden, another decade. Then we wake up 20 years older, looking ourselves back in the mirror with regret because we didn’t take care of our bodies.

I encourage you to do something about it now. Don’t wait. Don’t let it get to a point where you are forced to get serious because you are facing some serious medical condition due to not caring about your health. You can be proactive with your health and take action now! I know it can be a little scary and some feel nervous to make that decision, but you have to start somewhere. Sometimes it’s making the phone call or going on the website that can be the most difficult part. Stephanie, who just lost 95 lbs. with us in 12 months, told me on our TV show on ABC, “I cancelled the consultation 4 times, I was so scared, but I finally did it, I realized I had to believe I could!”
