Ever ask "How did I get to be so big?"

You wouldn't be alone if you almost feel as though one day you woke up and suddenly had gained a load of weight.

"How did this happen?"

"When did this start?"

"How did this start?"

And you keep on looking in the mirror,  disliking what you see and beating yourself up about it.  Sound familiar?

Right now stop right there.  I see people morbidly obese walking with a struggle in town,  trying to get around.  With cruelty some people tut and say "How can they let themselves get like that?"
Well chances are,  they didn't.

We don't just end up like that do we.  Realistically. 

If we gain weight,  it's because we have eaten too many calories on one occasion.  The scales reflect a 1lb gain.
"Oh well, I'll get that off again this week."
Then another day we do the same.  So on goes another pound, then another and another.  Before you know it, you've gained a stone.  Exactly the same way everyone gains weight.  Bit by bit.

It was not your intention to become overweight.  Nor could you see it happening despite the chance that you decided to get a grip on it with that first 1lb gain.  Nor could anyone.

So it's happened.  So what is likely to happen next?

Well,  you come to a cross roads.

Now you need to make a decision.

Do you change your habits or do you carry on gaining at one pound per time?

Changing your habits means eating differently,  thinking consciously about what is going into your system.  And watching the scales go pound at a time.

That's right.  Let's be real yet encouraging.  You can lose weight.  You will likely lose it faster than you gained it if you are really focused.  Yet you are not going to make the decision and then wake up the following day to see a suddenly slim you,  no more than you woke up overweight.

So make a decision to go on a journey and begin to respect your body more. 
* You will feel better,  
* you will look better, 
* have more energy
* Reduce the chances of illness
* Likely live much longer and spending precious time with your loved ones.

So,  you want to make this happen?
