Well, the group just finished week eleven which leaves one week to go. It looks like several people have broken out of the midterm slump and weight-loss plateau’s which were going around.
At times like those, you just have to buckle down, redouble your efforts, and stay with it. If you quit, you never get what you want. So it really comes down to, is staying power. And that really comes down to commitment.
If you’re really committed to something, you can withstand all the different things that are pulling on you, trying to get you off track. This means you have to have reasons to keep going. Here’s where having certain, specific goals can help.
If you have a goal that really means something to you, you’re more likely to get there. One thing that almost all of the remaining Biggest Losers have in common is a goal. If I ask them how much they wanted to lose during the 12 weeks, they can tell me right away.
The other thing that really helps is if you have a need to do it. This is a felt-need that is so deep, that sometimes, you can’t even explain it. It just is. I think it’s when you really get in tune with you who are, and who you’re supposed to be.
It could be as simple as finally getting fed up with how things have been for you. Once you turn that corner, it gets easier to do whatever it takes to keep going.
Finally, once you start feeling better, you do it so you can keep feeling that way. Here’s where the real power is. You know what it’s like the other way, and you don’t ever want to go back. And by then, you might even like working out, and watching what you eat!
This week’s Biggest Loser was once again Laken Pennington, who lost 2.3% of her body weight and 3.8 lbs. Laken’s lost a total of 29.2 lbs to date and had a goal of 30.0 lbs. That should be no problem for her.
