So often we fall into the habit of looking outside of ourselves for answers.
We ask people questions. We research online. We play with Facebook. I'm right there with the worst at times, lost in the maze of information obsession, clicking the hours away, fascinated by details and data.
It's staggering how much stimulation and busyness keeps us from the quiet moments of self-reflection and awareness that bring us back to our inner homes, feeling centered and clear in mind and heart.
When it comes to weight loss, there is ONE key piece of information that only YOU can provide by going within yourself.
Only YOU know what motivates you to eat healthier, exercise, make consistent changes, and create lifestyle habits that build the life and body you've always wanted.
It's at the heart of what fires you up to take action and to commit to change. And you cannot succeed without it.
Take a few minutes today to give yourself the best weight loss inspiration gift you can and list what really inspires you to take action. Then use it like the rocket fuel of motivation that it is!
Cheers and Love,

The Heart of Weight Loss Motivation
List your YOUR top 10 juiciest & most inspiring reasons to lose weight.
C'mon go ahead.
Everyone's reasons are unique and change in time.
Be specific about what really makes your blood boil...
...or heart soar when you think about it.
And if I see "get healthier" on there I will personally come to your house and interrogate you as to what that means. It's way too vague and not motivating in the slightest. Does "get healthier" make you want to go exercise right now or make a healthy meal? I don't think so.
Ask yourself questions that dig into your DEEPER reasons.
What scares me about keeping the weight on year after year?
What is on hold in my life right now because of my weight or health?
What thrills me to think about doing when I get the weight off?
How much more energy will I feel?
What will I do with more confidence or freedom or joy?
How will I feel differently about myself?

Knowing what fires you up is the single BIGGEST motivator for weight loss and the core of your power.
Tap into that fire in your belly and start pumping it through your veins to eat something healthier, do ten minutes of exercise, or to make the choice to take action.
For most of us losing weight will never get any easier than it is right now. That's the cold reality.
One year from now, five years from now, it will just be that much harder to get started and you'll have that much MORE weight to lose. We're all busy but there just is no perfect time.
Give yourself a day or two to set an intention/vision, plan your first steps and dive in. ANY action is the right action, just do the best you can and keep tweaking the variables as you do - it's what we'll do for the rest of our lives (that's living, right?).
Take a first step to course correct now your lifestyle choices and start feeling better today. We're all in this together.
You can do it!

Chipotle Cheese "Popcorn"
I had the good fortune to meet an amazing woman at the Raw Health Expo in Sebastopol last weekend named Diana Stobo. She wowed me with a lively spirit, tons of practical and healthy information, and food that knocked my socks off. She changed her life (and lost a ton of weight) cleaning up her diet and now serves as an inspiration to us all.
Check out her healthy and delicious raw "popcorn" snack made from cauliflower that could become your new tasty fix. And with only FIVE ingredients - gotta love that.
Chipotle Cheese Popcorn Recipe
Prepare a batch or two ahead of time for the week. Eat warm or cool, raw or dehydrated, spicy or mild, just the way YOU like it.
And check out her book, Diana Stobo’s Get Naked Fast: A Guide to Stripping Away the Foods That Weigh You Down. I'm reading it now and loving the fresh recipes and hands-on information.
Make it happen! I'm cheering you on all the way.
Wishing everyone a centered and productive week taking action on making your wildest dreams closer to reality.
