5 Proven Steps to Reach Your Weight Loss Goals

You want to get into better shape, increase your energy, to drop the fat and feel better?
Join the club…most people are actively working toward an elusive fat loss goal. 
So what separates those who end up achieving their goals from the rest of the masses who are trapped in a fruitless struggle? 
Winston Churchill hit the nail on the head when he said, "Never, never, never, never give up." 
The bottom line is that it is possible to achieve any fitness goal when you lock on to it and strive towards it every day. Unfortunately, distractions are everywhere, making it easy to fall off track. 
This brings us to the classic Henry Ford quote, "Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal." 
In order to stay the course, it is vital that you keep your eyes on the goal. 
Here's how to get to your goal in 5 Steps: 
Step One: Only One At A Time
When you're feeling motivated, and decide to set a goal, it's tempting to become over-ambitious by setting multiple goals. While it's great that you want to improve many things about yourself, the pressure of trying to achieve more than one goal at once will cause you to drop all the goals and go back to the status quo. 
Focus in on the one goal that you really want to achieve first, and focus all of your efforts onto this goal with laser-like force. There will be plenty of time in the future to see your other goals, but for now see your number one goal all the way through to completion. 
Step Two: Start Slow
Another pitfall that often results in dropped goals is the act of starting out too fast and too strong. If your goal is to get rid of all of the sugar in your diet so you can lose 20 lbs in 8 weeks do not (I repeat, DO NOT) remove every single ounce of carbohydrates at one time. You'll be so cranky, tired and constipated that I guarantee you'll give up the following week and your goal will be put back on a shelf. 
Take a deep breath and remember that this isn't a race. This is your life, and it's you against yourself. Start out slow and steady and gradually build as you progress toward your goal. Don't allow self-induced fatigue to get in your way. 
Step Three: Know Your Reasons Why 
Why is this goal so important to you? There are probably many reasons, and you should know every single one of them. Write down each and every possible reason you can come up with as to why your goal needs to be met. 
Intimately get to know the 'reasons why' this goal is so important to you. You should have them memorized and should recite them every single day. Remember what Ford said - when you take your eyes of your goal you'll see loads and loads of obstacles. Keep your eyes locked onto that goal by filling your mind with all of the 'reasons why' you're going to see this thing through. 
Step Four: Think About It
Along with thinking about your reasons for accomplishing your goal, it's also helpful to focus your mind on how you'll feel once you've done it. Dedicate some time each day to picture your new post-goal life. 
How awesome are you going to feel when you've accomplished this goal that's been on your mind for so long? Pretty amazing. Fill your mind with that feeling of accomplishment well before you've finished the work. The more you feel connected to the end of the race, the more likely it is that you'll make it through. 
Step Five: Put It All On The Line
It's time to put your money where your mouth is. Invest in something that will help propel you toward your goal. When you shell out some of your hard earned money to aid in your progress, then you are going to take this process that much more seriously. 
It's time to seriously commit yourself to seeing this goal to completion. If your goal is to lose weight and to get into amazing shape, then invest in one of my proven nutrition programs.
