Even though it is still the Christmas Season, I had to take down our Christmas tree yesterday. I had the football playoffs on TV while I was wrapping up the ornaments and I was being bombarded by weight-loss ads! Wow - bombarded was the word, as the ads had a frantic nature. Here is my take away from it all!
1) Whether you watch football or not, you will be able to grasp this life lesson which is critical for success in ANYTHING. The team that gets comfortable and loses their focus loses the game. The team that keeps their focus no matter how behind they are wins the game over and over again! In Kansas City the Royals showed us this in World Series baseball too! :)
2) A major way to lose focus in a "game" is to begin to compare in football, baseball or dieting. We may become overwhelmed and start to lose heart because the other team or diet seems better, faster or gets more results. Here is the FACT about weight-loss no matter if it is Light Weigh, juice, paleo, gastric bypass, Weight Watchers, Nutrisystem or The Biggest Loser. Depending on the amount of weight you have to lose, you will have major weight loss drops the first three weeks (the more you need to lose the greater the drops). Then after that, God (yes - remember Him?) has designed your body to lose no more than 1.5 to 2 pounds a week. This was so a famine would have a harder time wiping you out. You actually will not lose weight faster on other programs! You also will not get peace with food on other programs.
3) Staying focused and in the game with Light Weigh will enable you to win if you do not quit! Now is the time to refocus and put both feet in Light Weigh One King or Light Weigh! Do not slouch and get comfortable - instead sit up straight and make the most of this God given opportunity you have in Light Weigh!
