Weight Loss Game

I was back stage in green room of Fox TV, waiting to be a guest on talk show… Waiting with me was former New England Patriot Tabucky Jones… Patriots are my favorite team and I remember watching him play… As we are talking about how much the game has changed, our conversation started the wheels turning in my head… I was getting my material for my next article…

I told Jones, it seems like the players today NEVER commit a penalty… They seem to argue almost every call… I then said, “can you image if we didn’t have referees”? He just shook his head and said, “it would be crazy”…

My clients know me as The Fat Loss Coach… Like all good coaches, I teach the rules to the game and help every client to become good players staying within the rules… The biggest challenge to coaching in the “weight loss game”, my clients are both the player and the referee

Like any game, when we stay within the rules, we score, and when we play outside the rules there of course is a penalty… So how do we become good players? Like all good players, practice and then more practice… Practice visualizing staying within the rules, before the game of right foods, right portions and timing of your meals… Now I know what your thinking, coach, I can’t be perfect… I know, I don’t expect you will play perfect, but you can visualize perfect…

Learn a valuable technique from the pro athletes, which will make you a pro at the weight loss game… Before the basketball player, takes a shot, the golfer a swing, and baseball pitcher a pitch, they visualize the perfect outcome… The ball going through the hoop, into the hole, or hitting the catchers mitt… Does the perfect outcome happen every time? Oh course not, but the pro’s keep believing it will… As soon as they stop believing, there performance and usually their career ends…

Now the game Jones played comes to an end and he is retired… In the game of managing your weight your the player and referee and there is no end… So let me send you off with your coaches pep talk… You thought you could not do it, I always knew you could… I helped to see you through it like every good coach should…
