Over the years it’s not uncommon that I see some of my past clients out and about town and notice that they have gained weight since they stopped working with me.
I get that people’s priorities change.
However, seeing some of these women made me stop and think why had they gained weight again.
They were loving how they felt and looked…full of energy, stronger, more confident. They felt beautiful inside and out.
I know they learned great skills that can last a lifetime, so why didn’t it last a lifetime.
I started thinking about my own life and where I’ve slipped back into old habits.
Every time I’ve slipped up and gone back to old habits it’s because I dropped out of my support system.
At times, a full year may have gone by where I wasn’t plugged into my mentors. For whatever reason, I didn’t prioritize the time, money, or effort to see them or connect with them.
It’s crystal clear to me now, of course, after having setbacks, that I see the direct relationship between my success and my being “plugged in”.
I know that I HAVE to go out of my comfort zone and make it a priority to be in touch with my coaches and mentors.
Even my family has to go out of their comfort zones because I have to travel to meet with my mentors so Mike and Audrey have to adjust for my time away.
But in the end, it’s worth it.
I think the same thing happens with the women I see who no longer work with Her Fitness.
They lose their support system, they lose their vision and possibilities for themselves and they lose their accountability.
Here’s the lesson: We ALL need support and to surround ourselves with mentors, coaches and people who will help us get where we want to go AND help keep us going!
No successful person goes it alone.
This applies to all areas of life – fitness & health (weight loss), finance, spiritual and relationships.
If you slipped off the fitness and healthy eating wagon, don’t beat yourself up…just get back, get plugged in, find a coach or support system.
If it happens to be me and Her Fitness, great, but if not, that’s okay, too. Just get back to doing what works, and that usually involves help from others.
Besides, God has a plan for you and He wants you to be Healthy, FIT & Strong!
