How Bob Lost 86 Pounds In 3 1/2 Weeks!
by George Pierce
The first part of this article is a funny weight loss story. Enjoy. The second part is how to stay motivated.
Acme has come out with a new weight loss plan for people who want to lose a lot of weight fast. Bob calls in on Acme's ad and orders Step One, a one week program to lose 10 pounds.
Early Monday morning, Grace, a beautiful you woman shows up at Bob's door. She is wearing a scanty sun dress, a pair of Reebok sneakers, and a sign. She lets bob know that she is from Acme and asks him to read the sign. It reads, "If you can catch me, I am yours!"
Without thinking, Bob is in hot pursuit of Grace. For seven days, Bob fails to catch Grace, but he does lose 11 pounds and signs up for Step Two. Step Two is a ten day program to lose 20 pounds.
Early Monday morning, Tara, an equally beautiful woman shows up at Bob's door. Tara is wearing a sign and Reeboks and nothing else. Tara's sign say, "Catch me and I am yours!" For 10 days Bob chases Tara until he can barley breathe. He does not catch her, but he does lose 23 pounds! Of course. Bob is ready to sign up for Step Three. Tara warns him that Step Three promises at least a 30 pound weight loss in 7 days and that it is the final and most intense step. Bob is sure that he is ready for Step Three so he signs up.
Early Thursday morning, Carl, rather large and muscular, shows up at Bob's door wearing only Reeboks and a sign. Carl's sign said, "If I catch you, you are mine!" Bob was able to elude Carl for the following seven days and lost a whopping 52 additional pounds!
How To Stay Motivated To Lose Weight - The Psychology of Weight Loss Success
Motivation has two facets:
#1 Goals - short term, medium term. and long term.
#2: Purpose - your reason(s) why.
Bob's GOAL was to lose weight. Bob's purpose was to catch Grace or Tara or not be caught by Carl.
Purpose is what will keep you on track and/or help you to get back on track. Your purpose equals your underlying reasons for weight loss. Emotional reasons are the ones that work best.
