Yesterday was Monday Mindset- in my group we opened up with a BONUS CHALLENGE.I asked them “Since you’ve started your journey WHAT negative remarks, comments, ‘digs’ have you received from people?? AND how did you handle it???”
Out of 40+ people just under 1/2 of them mentioned receiving negativity from someone during their journey.
It doesn’t surprise me BUT does baffles me as to WHY this happens!
I do have to say The AWESOME thing is that MORE than 1/2 of the group mentioned they had lots of support and positive encouragement. Which is fantastic!!
BUT there still was/is some negativity when it comes to others making lifestyle changes. WHY?! Because it’s CHANGE!
We need to show our support to one another! This is a HEALTHY choice — I’m NOT about preaching starvation or fad diets. I’m about. Lifestyle change. Feeding the body GOOD
FOOD and getting physical activity in!! That’s my belief and my passion as a coach.
So why do we push people down?
It’s the other persons Mindset!!
WE have to have the stronger mindset to NOT let them bring you down!! They’ll come around (hopefully) when they see how happy and healthy you feel!
•Strong is the new skinny–it’s not about getting ‘skinnier’ –it’s about toning and feeling strong enough to carry their kids around if they need.
•It isn’t about ‘losing MORE weight’ it’s about lowering -reducing the need for medical intervention for current illnesses.
•It’s about feeling confident and happy in ones own skin.
•’Eat something’ –where were you when I was ‘over eating and 30lbs over weight’ NOW I eat the right portions for fueling my body–ITS ABOUT EATING TO LIVE -NOT- LIVING TO EAT!!
~I can go on forever BUT I think I’ve made my point!! EMPOWER & SUPPORT each other!
It takes time. It takes effort. It isn’t always easy. BUT with time, dedication, & determination it’s all worth it in the end!!
