You Are In Control

da-mo-225Having a workout partner, a running buddy, a spouse or friend on the same diet with you or just someone to motivate you to get skinny and in shape is great, but you can never fully rely on someone else to get your body to the healthy state it should be. You have to be willing to fight for it all on your own. If you do not have this personal determination in your life it won’t matter if you get your own private cheerleading squad, you will end up failing and fat. You must learn to remind yourself on a daily basis that you are in control.

We as humans are amazing and complex creatures. One of the most fantastic things and scariest things about us is our minds. You might be shocked to discover that your brain has the power to make your diet work or fall apart. It is so easy to get in a habit of relying on encouragement from other people but what happens when they aren’t around and you are hungry at the supermarket?

Take control of your thoughts and mindsets in order to live successfully the healthy lifestyle you so strongly desire. Sure, you should always accept tons of help from friends, family, co-workers or someone you meet at the gym. Take all you can get! The only time that support from others becomes dangerous to our diet or workout routine is when we become dependent on someone else and then don’t stick to our commitments when they aren’t around to be our personal cheerleaders.

In the past when I was just starting on my Medifast Diet and getting back in shape I struggled with this side of being healthy on a daily basis. I had to make myself sticky notes to put on all of my mirrors reminding myself that I am in control of my body and my mind and that I have the power to achieve my goals. I didn’t truly start to feel great until I grasp this concept and put it to work in my life.
