We often make losing weight more complicated than it is. But the truth is that there are lots of easy healthy things you can do every day to move yourself toward your goal.
The key is to point yourself in the direction of what you desire and then take simple steps along the path toward your goal, moving away from mindless eating and becoming more conscious of your habits.
The journey of 1000 miles really does begin with a single step.
There is no magic to being happy, healthy and slim. There’s just deciding to take responsibility for your life, your weight and your health.
In the final analysis, it all comes down to deciding what you want and then taking action toward what you want.
Like Nike, says, “Just Do it.” You don’t have to do all of it at once. But you must begin.
And it helps to change your thinking too.
When you begin adopting the behaviors of woman who are naturally living happy, healthy slim lives, before you know it, you become one of them.
