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.
