Anyone that’s ever made a decision to lose excess pounds has probably had a goal weight in mind.

And if we work hard enough and achieve it, it’s such a PROUD sense of accomplishment.

And then we FINALLY get to go back to what we ate before, right?

Hah!

Wrong.

I actually reached my “goal weight” several months ago but I realized that the glamour of seeing a certain 3 digit number wears off quickly.

Does seeing a certain number bring automatic happiness? Or give a perfect feeling of fulfillment?

I’d reached a breaking point multiple times in the past that made me want to lose weight. Three times in particular (that I remember).

So if I hit a goal weight twice, how did I get to that place of desperation and disappointment again?

I didn’t know how to maintain it. I thought once I hit my goal via my temporary diets and intense cardio sessions at the gym, I could let my new healthy habits slowly slip away as I returned to my old life.

Spoiler alert – THAT WON’T WORK!

So this time, I’ve maintained the same weight for about six months.

How, you might ask?

I’m replacing several grains a day with greens, yet still eating bread. I’m eliminating desserts after every single meal (yup, I would eat chocolate chips after breakfast), but indulging a few times a week with small treats.

I’m getting up at 5AM to spend a little time on ME and breaking a sweat while much of the world is still sleeping.

Special pills, restrictive diets and excessive cardio WON’T last and you may soon be back to your unhealthy habits again.  If you’re looking for something that WILL last, I’d love to chat with you about your goals and help you find a plan you can stick too.  Please fill out this form and I will be in touch: Boot Camp Application
