Secrets of Success

Don'T Give Yourself Options



My husband and I followed SP together to lose our weight (he lost 80+ pounds). He taught me there are no options (as someone else said, treat it like a job). It's not "if" you should work out. You must work out. It's not "if" you will eat healthy. You will eat healthy. Do NOT give yourself the option. My husband still practices this. One example -- No matter what time he gets home at night, he works out. Whether it's 6 p.m. or 10 p.m. Talk about inspirational!
