"Life's good I'm off to climb Kilimanjaro in September . Weights coming off slowly . Lost 1& 1/2 stone now . 1 stone left to lose . "
- I've just received this as part of a wonderful email from a client who didn't think they would ever lose weight! Now they have seen that weight loss is something that takes time. It's so much easier for them to understand and be proud of all the changes they have already made...and look forward to more in the future.
Helping to change your thoughts about food, eating and exercise will have long term gains. Don't rush it, good things always take longer. In fact the metaphor of climbing a mountain works so well I wish I had thought of it myself! You wouldn't go running up a mountain because you would never make it to the summit. You plan how you will go about it, equip yourself with the right tools and take all the time you need to do it.
