Weight Loss Fast and Exercise or Pay Now or Pay them Later!Written by Greg Ryan
Why have I allowed myself to get into this shape? With life comes responsibility and with decisions comes consequences. It's your choice today to do something positive. Tomorrow it may be out of your hands. There are three underlying emotions that keep you from taking better care of yourself: denial, pride, and laziness. Consciously or subconsciously, this threesome is root of why most Americans have allowed themselves to get in shape they are in.
Are you one of them?
Chances are sooner or later one or all three will be riding with you in car to hospital. Have you found yourself saying these things?
"My diet is not that bad." "A few trips to fast food joint once in awhile won't hurt." "My blood pressure is fine today. It wouldn't hurt if I skipped a day of taking my medication." "My New Year's resolution next month is to get in better shape." "Why have I let myself get this out of shape?
"It won't happen to me…no way, no how!"
Unfortunately, it is what we cannot see that is killing us. Our insides are getting eaten away because of our lack of exercise and poor eating habits. Society is so concerned with extreme makeover television shows that we have been caught off guard with silent killers: heart disease, diabetes and obesity. Even if outside looks good, damage is still done inside our bodies. Over time we have made ourselves feel comfortable with certain lifestyle habits.
We overlook long-term consequences of our behaviors. We see things going on around us, but we continue to put off exercise and eating better for another day. Out of three, Denial is sneakiest beast of them all.
"Do not let them see you sweat or show any signs of weakness."
Ever find yourself saying one of these? "If I cannot do it on my own, then I will not do it at all." "Just very fact of having to take better care of me, irritates me." "I'll put off my check up until next fall." Ever have any of these thoughts? Denial's brother, Pride, may not be sneakiest, but he is strongest personality of boys. Having too much pride costs millions of lives every year in any arena you can imagine, especially in health and aging process. While pride may be strongest emotion out of three, he always seems to lose. His ego gets best of him and aging finally wins out in end.
Weight Loss equals behavior change - The Acceptance FactorWritten by Greg Ryan
Getting to ROOT of matter: If plants in your garden are not healthy looking, just trimming them back will not take care of problem. What do roots look like? I am no psychologist, but there is a very interesting twist you need to understand before you begin any weight loss or fitness program. To change unwanted behaviors, it’s important to acknowledge your thinking toward exercise and eating. A lot of people believe they know what that thinking is, but haven’t come to grips with their core beliefs. In other words, they have to get to “root of matter.”
The truth is more Americans are overweight and out-of-shape today than ever before. Why? In order to change your attitude toward exercise and food, you have to understand WHYs of behavior. You are going to have to dig deep, find root of problem, nurture and understand it.

Your BELIEF system: The reason you have certain behaviors is based on core beliefs of your value system. It is here--inside--where things need to be addressed. Beliefs form barriers that stop you from starting or following through on a regular exercise and eating program.
Most barriers fall into these categories of acceptance:
Accept: Your Self-Limitations and Self-Expectations Your Circumstances—Past and Present Your True Reality of Life
Limitations: Some individuals have certain limitations. They may have physical setbacks, such as heart, joint, muscular or mental problems, i.e. depression. Limitations also come from outside influences and responsibilities brought on by lifestyles, such as kids, work, and money. Acknowledging your limitations helps you develop strategies, thus empowering you instead of hindering your capabilities.
Expectations: There is nothing wrong with setting goals; however, setting expectations too high could frustrate you. Do not set of expectations so high that your obligations in life will not allow you to accomplish goal!
