The power of NO MORE!


Imagethe-power-of-socialmedia-41.jpg

Ahh… Thanksgiving, many people’s favorite holiday.  I have heard the chatter, and mostly I hear “I can’t wait to eat or I am eating as much as I want."   I watch them space out as if imagining the turkey coma already.   Hmm, what if people changed what they told themselves and imagined about Thanksgiving.  Half the battle is in our head anyway, so let’s make a winning battle.  Instead of telling ourselves that we are going to eat whatever we want, as much as we want and visualize ourselves popping, loosening a belt loop, unbuttoning our pant’s or wearing elastic in preparation, what would happen if we imagined something different?  

  • What if we told ourselves, I can eat one plate and be totally satisfied?
  • What if we imagined walking by those tempting dishes that may be our weakness or derailed us before with no pull, no reaction, and no desir?  Instead, imagine disgust at the dishes that previously had power over us…NO MORE! 
  • What if the picture we imagine is one of a person who is focused, determined, feeling confident and competent with back up plans and exit strategies to protect the program and protect ourselves from a mishap.
  • What if we tell ourselves, a mantra, the weeks and days before Thanksgiving, that we are there to see family, and we have the power to control our eating?  We are in charge of what goes on our plate and we can choose to eat it or not. 
  • What if we tell ourselves how fantastic and successful we are feeling on program, how we have taken control of our weight and said NO MORE to the past behaviors.  
  • What if we imagine the scenario from start to finish of being successful, waking up the day of prepared and ready to tackle this Thanksgiving with purpose, determination and refusal to give in to temptations, refusing to overindulge and laser focus to staying on program?

WHAT IF BECOMES REALITY!   Instead of what if, it now becomes WHEN I…

Pay attention to what thoughts, feelings and scenarios you have when you think about Thanksgiving.   Start paying attention to those people who are setting themselves up to overindulge because hey, if you tell yourself you’re going to do it, you usually do. 

Give yourself a new kind of power this Thanksgiving, the power to do it right, the power to make it successful, the power to move forward, the power to say NO MORE, and the power to say YES to a new and better you.

MRC of Vancouver started me going in my attempt to loose 30 years of weight gain!! I have been using their program for about 18 months and have actually lost 30 pounds. I have changed the way I eat. I've learned what foods are best for ME. By analyzing my DNA and hormones, they helped me learn to eat what was right for me. I have "tweeked" my purchases and preparation of food to make eating healthy and still fun for me. I eat lots of veggies and salads and include a healthy diet of protein. These are very satisfying. Do I "cheat" now and then? Yes, but I don't like how I feel after eating sugar and lots of carbs so I return to my good foods quickly and continue to see my weight drop. I walk my little dog four times a day and have a part-time job that allows me a lot of movement. I feel so healthy and wonderful. It's easy to continue to eat and live a more healthy lifestyle! When I confessed about eating the wrong "foods", the gals simply encouraged me and gave me fresh ideas to satisfy my taste buds. I always felt I could be honest during my consultations with no fear of being lectured! I plan to continue until I reach my desired weight. I expect to reach my goal by 2017. After I reach my weight goal, I plan to remain in good health with my new found healthy way of eating the calories I need to maintain my proper weight. My Dr. is very pleased at my progress. She wondered how I have lost 30 pounds.
