Having looked inward to do some soul-searching, three heartfelt reasons for making the decision to transform my health and life are:
1)To be a shining example to men and women my age. That they can take control of their future to live a long healthy life.
2)To feel good about myself and have inner peace.
3)To really enjoy life and enjoy new adventures.
In recent days and weeks, the three most predominant inner feelings I have been experiencing are:
1)Disappointment in myself for just sitting around and letting those numbers on the scale climb
2)Embarrassed about the image that I see in the mirror....that cannot be me!
3)Fearful of having major health issues after going to the emergency room with kidney stones....finding out after a ct scan that everything else was fine...other than some anemia.
Three patterns of thinking or beliefs which may have limited my ability to change in the past are:
1)I'm only a few pounds overweight, I can lose that at any time.
2)I don't eat that bad, That piece of cake won't hurt a thing.
3)I don't have time to work out with my busy life.
Three objectively verifiable statements which reflect my physical condition right now are:
1)My BMI is 26 which is now considered to be in the overweight range....UGH
2)I have the "Middle Age Spread" and want it gone!!
3)When you look at a picture and don't recognize the person looking back at you..you know you have let things go too far!
Looking forward, 18 weeks from now, three changes I will have made that show Iím more aligned with whatís important to me at a heart and soul level are:
1)First and foremost, I will regularly be attending church.
2)I will have lost weight.
3)I will have become much more confident
Looking forward, 18 weeks from now, the three most predominant inner feelings which describe what Iíll be experiencing are:
1)I will be so proud of myself for accomplishing this goal
2)I will have much more energy to get out there and keep moving forward
3)I will be much more positive.
Three new patterns of thinking or beliefs which expand my ability to make healthy changes for the better will be:
1)To realize that I really do have time to work out everyday, because I am worth it.
2)To know that on a day to day basis I have the power within myself to avoid those foods that are not healthy for me and eat what God meant for us to eat.
3)To know that this journey will continue for the rest of my days!
Three objectively verifiable statements which will describe the new and improved condition of my body 18 weeks from now are:
1)I will weigh 135lbs or less.
2)I will be within the normal BMI range
3)I will be so proud of myself for the completion of my first Transformation knowing that this is just the beginning!
