I am excited to report that my month of May went much better than all the months so far this year. Not because of exercise, though. I have to admit that I did not exercise much. However, I still reduced my weight by more* than 18 pounds. I started really REALLY actively DOing the program I started on May 5th. I started a couple weeks before that with reading and study to begin the process of changing my brain in the ways necessary to make this program really work.
DOing the program consists of eating differently both in what and when. It’s been much easier than I expected, but still difficult. The progress on the scale is worth the effort I’ve put forth. In fact, since I thought it would be more difficult, I’m sure even less progress would still be worth the effort.
The method I’m using is difficult. I’m going to tell you straight. It’s not one of those ‘one-shot wonders,’ or a magic pill, or some “thin in 6” programs. It’s a method of working through brain/thought changes (starting with the reading/studying I told you about) to bring about lasting change. Of course, lasting will only be proved in me by time, but there are many others who have maintained their change for yearS to prove the program (when applied)! It will, of course, only work by consistent application to the principles of the program – both those that pertain to the mind and those that pertain to the body. In my opinion, based on observation of thin people, this program seems to teach folks HOW to be thin. What to do, how it to it and, to some extent, when to do it! I love that because I do not have a model of that to reference in such a way that makes sense for me to apply it to myself. I mean, I can see, upon reflection, that this program is or is similar to how thin people stay that way, but didn’t see the steps and principles prior to reading the book.
I’m so excited about this program I am in moving toward the Trilogy of Health in many ways, including by working to become a health coach with/for the program. If you’re interested, I’d be happy to talk to you. You can PM me via Facebook.
*Because I send my posts to Meg, the owner of this awesome blog, about 10 days before it shows up here, I can’t tell you exactly how far down I am for the month, but it’s going well so far, obviously!
