5 STAGES of MIND BODY TRANSFORMATION
If you are like me then the idea of having splinters shoved up your fingernails sounds better than the thought of giving up pizza, bread, chips, cookies, cake, soda . . . whatever your “vice” is. I’m not saying its going to be in easy. In fact, at first it totally sux. Getting skinny and retraining your mind to think like a skinny girl is a process . Your body and mind will go through stages. Being that I’m a few months and 15 (give or take) pounds down now I can share with you what those stages were for me.
1) Depravation. Everywhere I looked I saw things I wanted but wasn’t “allowed” to eat. Things that never even looked good to me before were now screaming from the bakery department shelves, “Nanny, nanny, nanny, you can’t have me!” This made me want them all the more. This stage shall pass.
2) Licenced Cheater. I went through the stage where I was gonna have my pizza and wasn’t anybody gonna tell me otherwise. I looked at it like this; I work out hard. I deprive myself all week long and I deserved that ding dang pizza, darn it! I was LIVING for cheat night. Once a week I was off to my favorite place to get my favorite pizza and while I was eating it I could have died and gone to heaven and I would have been perfectly happy because every delicious morsel of that pizza was like a slice of heaven on a plate.
3) Awakening. Then all the sudden you’ll eat your once favorite things and you’ll realize that your old favorite things make you feel like total crap. Not in a mental guilty sort of way. In a physical sort of, that pizza is sitting in stomach like a big ol fat Michelin Man, why in the hec did I eat that, sort of way.
Once you get to the Awakening point, your pounds should literally start to melt away. Provided that you have your body in motion and that you don’t have some imbalance preventing it from releasing the fat it wants to let go of. A healthy body doesn’t want to be fat any more than you want it to be fat.
