To quote Teddy Roosevelt:
“Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty… I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.”
Lisa is one of those people. While raising 6 kids and working towards her career goals, she makes health a priority. Why? Health is critical to quality of life. We can achieve health at any age, and it will look different for everybody. What looks the same is this: self-worth, attitude, and goals. These are the same tools that lead to job satisfaction and general life happiness. Thus, weight loss is never just about weight loss. Get to the heart of your struggle and start reading Lisa’s book today. She will help you cross those common mental barriers and be the healthy person you’ve always wanted to be.
“Some people will try to get healthy for someone else, but I had to do it for myself. If I had tried to do it for someone else I would resent them when I was hungry, felt deprived, or was so sore I could hardly walk after a difficult workout. Yes, I wanted to be there for my children but it wasn’t just for them. I was doing it because I wanted to watch them grow up… My kids would grow up, get married, have their own families, and experience life even if I died due to a weight-related health issue, but I wanted to be there to see it all.”
And there’s the key, folks. Do it for YOURSELF. You are worth it, and you are ready.
In Lisa’s words, why wait?
“Why wait until Monday to start getting healthy? There is no rule that says you can’t start right now. I’m not sure why everyone thinks Monday is the best day to start a new exercise or eating plan. Mondays tend to be hectic and stressful, so why would you choose your busiest day to try something new? Start on Friday and you’ll have your whole weekend to make healthy choices, and you’ll be three days ahead of all the people who waited until Monday. Start on your least busy day, start on your lunch break, start right after work, start right now! What are you waiting for, Monday?”
