Alex is 23-years-old, 459 lb. over-weight kid who suffered the loss of his mother from cancer near the end of his high school education. The loss of his mother shattered his world; consequently, he checked out of living a vivacious life by eating through his pain and grief, and became apathetic toward life in general.
Alex’s journey began when Extreme Weight Loss Makeover, pulled him out from the deep, dark pit of excuses he dug for himself which ultimately started his successful journey for a complete weight-loss body transformation.
Extreme Weight Loss Makeover immediately began removing all the junk food that was contributing to his obesity and replaced it with foods that were nutritionally dense by feeding his living cells to contribute to his extreme weight loss.
Over the next 90 days, even at his extreme weight, Alex was instructed through intense, weight-loss workouts that were very challenging, even discouraging at times due to his obesity and the difficulty he had with performing the exercises but he slowly overcame them through patience.
When the 90 days of weight-loss instruction was over, he immediately went back to old, self-defeating habits. Without the necessary support, Alex stopped exercising during his scheduled time and would rather play games or watch television instead.
Now it’s time for some boot camp to help whip his attitude and belief system into shape. His boot camp journey became a life-changing experience where Alex learned and practiced the skill of discipline and determination to overcome difficult boot camp challenges.
At the end of Alex’s 12-month weight-loss journey, he lost a whopping 216 lbs. of fatty excuses and regained his life to live it more abundantly.
So what do we learn from Alex’s weight-loss journey?
First, he was given a proven, weight-loss blueprint (i.e., an action plan, a to-do list) to help keep him on track.
Second, he received professional guidance, instruction, and accountability to get him on track with his weight-loss journey.
Third, he had to take massive action by following the weight-loss blueprint and to be consistent each and every day without fail and without excuses (even the valid ones), which means staying dedicated to his workouts, especially when he didn’t feel like working out, and by modifying his meals to a much healthier lifestyle, even when he didn’t feel like eating it.
Fourth, he had to learn about discipline, patience, and determination to see his goal of 200 plus pounds of weight loss a reality.
Fifth, dreams do come true when you’re willing to give it all you can by taking responsibility of your actions. Metaphorically speaking, when you slam yourself against life’s wall (like Alex did during the boot camp course), you don’t give up and quit but instead quickly lick your wounds and move forward by following your weight-loss blueprint until you reach your magnificent goal.
Last, no matter how much weight you want to lose or how little, you can achieve weight loss by removing self-limiting beliefs. If an excuse or an “I can’t” pops up into your head, look for a way to solve the problem rather than giving up on a solution.
Flip Your Excuses
Sigh: “I’m so frustrated – I’ll never get the hang of this.”
Affirm: “There’s a lot here I don’t understand. I’ve got a lot of questions and this is going to be a real challenge but I’m giving it 100% effort.”
To live life more abundantly, you must believe that you have the innate ability to resolve insurmountable obstacles that life throws at you.
