1. Become Your own Drill Sergeant
When I joined the Army I was 80 pounds overweight and in terrible shape. My “friendly” drill instructor helped me not only lose those 80 pounds, but an additional 20 pounds. How? Tough love. He used it on me, I use in on myself, and now you need to use it on yourself. This means accountability. No more oversleeping or skipping workouts for happy hour. You need to make a plan to get into shape and stick with it. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. I tell my clients not to focus on the scale. Focus on getting healthy and fit, and the weight loss will happen. Let weight loss be a by-product and incredible shape be your goal.
