When you drop weight fast with a program like Isagenix it’s a bit of a shock.
You wake up in the morning, expecting to see the you you’re used to then BAMB! there’s this skinnier version of you staring back from the bathroom mirror.
It’s cool in a way because you don’t have time to be hyper-critical of how you look. You know the game right?
“If I lose 20lbs I’ll be happy”. Then you drop the 20 through massive hard-work and sacrifice and you manage to find something else to be unhappy about.
“Oh look, now that I’ve lost some weight I have knee wrinkles”. (or a chin wattle, or extra elbow skin or, the mack-daddy of all women’s weight loss complaints…wait for it…swinging, saggy arm fat!)
So far, I haven’t done that. I made a promise to myself when I was 166lbs that when I lost 20lbs I would marvel at my new bod and be happy with myself. I’d cut myself some slack and be proud that I had finally made the effort to do something about the way I looked.
And guess what? It’s working! I AM happy. I AM proud. I AM 25lbs lighter than I was 7 weeks ago. That’s a shit-load of weight! That’s beginning Biggest Loser weight loss on an end-of-show Biggest Loser frame!
So suck it little voice inside my head that used to stand in the way. You’re an asshole anyway and I’m not listening to your nonsense anymore.
I’m heading out to yoga now to train the little voice some more. I think that the whip and chair that I’ve been using to get that lil voice in line has worked wonders. I also think that training said lil voice is the key to success in all things you do.
If you want to learn more about how I dropped the tonnage read some of the dieting (yuck) posts on this site and please feel free to email me or leave a comment. I’m pretty good at responding!
