Lots of people want to lose weight – but few actually follow through with it; and even less actually keep it off.

Weight loss is one the very top new year’s resolutions, every single year. If weight loss is your goal, this year, I want to share with you some sexy mindset shifts it took for me to finally drop the weight and drop it for good.

Actually, these mindset shifts can apply to any goal you have.

Let me tell you a little bit of my back story, if you don’t know already. I tried so many diets. I tried so many different ways of losing weight, and I was largely unsuccessful. In my ’20s, I gained some weight in college drinking and eating lots of fast food, and I did go on to lose 20 to 25 pounds, which came off relatively easy with just a couple shifts, working out every day, but then after I had kids, that never happened again – despite many attempts.

1. It takes a DECISION.
After my second child, I was so tired of being over weight, my son was five years old, and I had been overweight, I had never lost the baby weight. I’d been carrying on an extra 20, 30, even up to 40 pounds of extra weight for five years. And so, when I was about eight or nine months pregnant with my daughter, I just made a decision that I wasn’t gonna carry that baby weight around any longer, and it was going to come off no matter what,

When you get to the point where you are ready to make it happen, it will. Most people want to lose weight, but don’t believe they can really do it or they think it has to be too hard and they talk themselves out of it.

2. Change what you think about.
You have to change what you’re thinking about and those internal thoughts, that internal dialogue that’s going on in your head. I had to change how I thought and how I talked to myself about my commitment level, about healthy foods, what I thought about exercise.
3. It is already done.
Step into it like you are already there. What would the fit version of you eat? What would she drink? How many times does she workout? Step into that version and you will be half way there.

The result?
I dropped 30 pounds, never setting foot in a gym.

I’ve also been able to improve my marriage, work less while making the same amount and completely transform my life.
The brain is powerful and can do amazing things. You are in the drivers seat. Where do you want to go? Are you ready to put your car in drive? or are you stuck in neutral?
