I said yesterday that I would have a special posting today. We all know that to be successful with a fitness program we have to have three things. These things are a good exercise program, a proper diet (one that feeds the body properly), and support. All to ofter we try to loose weight or get fit while we are missing one of these three things. Can you do it that way, Yes. It is just harder. There is one thing that we need even more than the other three, and without it our chance of success is lowered. Not impossible, just harder. What is that fourth element? That all important element is Why! Why are we doing what we are doing? This is important for anything we do in life, but when it comes to fitness we don't always have it in place. Prior to picking a program, of figuring out your diet you must figure out why are you heading down this road. If you want to loose 10 pounds, why do you want to loose it. The Why can be simple, but it must be something important to you. It has to be something that inspires commitment.
So next time you want to loose 10 pounds (or more), are looking for a new job, or just want to eat better before you start, figure out your Why. You will be much more successful.
