Get Your Head in the Game

This is one of my favorite sayings...and it is true for just about anything that you want to do in life. It refers to your mindset.

It is "the secret" to success!

You must first and foremost make a decision that you are going to do something, whether it is to lose weight, increase your fitness level, quit smoking, get off sugar or caffeine, or learn something new. It doesn't really matter what "it" is--you CAN achieve it as long as you truly commit to it.

It seems like losing weight is harder than some other things to commit to. That is true--if you let yourself believe that. If, on the other hand, you choose to believe that it is about attitude and choice and it is no different from any other choice then you will have an easier time.

If you do not believe in your heart, soul, the very core of your being that this time you can be successful at achieving your goal, then you probably won't be.

That doesn't mean you are destined to be obese for the rest of your life! It means that your work must start with getting your head in the game. Working on the mental and emotional attitude first. Then you can work on the foods themselves!
