Changing Inside Out Now!

Getting my body back Friday - Every day is a new beginning!


No matter how far you’ve gone or how old you are, you can begin again today. As long as you can breathe and have the will to try, you can begin living your life. Even though you have failed many times, so much time has gone by or you may have wasted your earlier years, new beginnings is not just for the young.

If, like me, you want to gain your ideal weight but have never engaged in an exercise routine before, or have not done so for a long time, it is never too late to start. You can start today, one step at a time, moving at your own pace.

Decision, determination and perseverance are the three elements needed to change your life and achieve any goal. Once you’ve made a decision to make a comeback, keeping at your pace helps to negate the feeling of being overwhelmed.

I discovered that lesson years ago. I’ve tried to keep up with all of the exercises on workout DVD’s and realized it was too overwhelming for me and I became quite discouraged. I decided, “You know what? I’m going to do this according to my own style and at my own pace and chosen number of repetitions.”

I decided that I would start slowly with stretches and as I got stronger added other moves into my routine. Before long, my body was asking for more. I felt the urge to go for brisk walks and even took up jogging. That was amazing.

Whatever journey you embark on, ensure you follow what you feel is right for you and allow other things to fall into place, naturally. You, too, can begin again.

What area of your life you feel like you need a fresh start?

  1. I need a fresh start in changing my THINKING. I've wanted to acheive weight loss for sooooooo long and have failed so many times. I need to change my THINKING, to know I can do it but it's easier said than done. Sad but true. Will never give up, though. Will keep on trying.

  3. Hello Susan, I read your comment. You need to reprogram your mind on a subconscious level. Your subconscious really wants you to be happy and it wants to serve you. However, because of early programming,it has accepted your weight challenges as your reality. You need to get it to work with you not against you. Hypnosis is a powerful tool to reset your mindset.

    Good luck!

  4. Thanks for posting Susan. Yes it's the thinking pattern that needs to be changed. Whatever you've been constantly thinking and more so feeling about your weight has to be changed. So if you've been growing apples and you want oranges you need to first uproot the apple tree and sow orange seeds. So you need to sow new thought seeds and visualize your desire repetitively until it becomes a habit, then your body will respond naturally to it.

  5. Totally agree with you Adalia, moving forward and not looking back. And yes the subconscious programming needs to be reprogrammed so it can yield its power.

    Thanks for posting Adalia. Looking forward to hearing more of your feedback.
