Making Weight Loss Easy

This is the time of the year that many people start to think about losing weight for summer. Often times our spring-time commitments are tinged with doubt. After all, hadn’t we just made a New Year’s Resolution to do exactly that? And yet, for some reason, our results have come up short.
I have heard clients speak about their disappointments that stem from previous challenges. Sometimes they even express a reluctance to try again which stems from the fear of failing (yet again). After all, what would it say about us if we continued to try, but failed?  Well, it would say that you are committed and courageous – two extremely critical qualities for success!
Here’s what we know – courage and commitment (while critical) are not enough. Those who are successful in losing weight must also have faith. They must have faith in their plan and faith in their ability to execute their plan.
Now I am not one to place bets on which weight loss diet is the best. I think a lot of that depends on the lifestyle and physical attributes of the person. One thing that is “beyond contestation” (if I could borrow my favorite phrase from A Knight’s Tale), is that healthy eating and an increase in activity are essential to achieve and sustain a healthy lifestyle.
That is why when I set out to create Boost Your Health, I kept it diet-neutral. Hence it can be used with literally ANY diet program on the market. Furthermore, we set out to create a program that would be the perfect companion to any diet or excersize program, as it addresses a critical element of success which is so often ignored – faith in you

Why is it that so many people lack faith in their ability to execute a health regimen?  Sure, it might be a lack of lasting success in the past.  But we were there then too, and we know why we failed in the past. It wasn’t the program we subscribed to. We hit a bump in the road because our thoughts led us astray. We all have years of unhealthy mental programming that has led us to where we are now. It is unrealistic to expect a mere commitment to be enough to override the deep neuro-pathways that result from the years of bad habits.
In order to change, we must code new thoughts and habits into our mind. That is where our program Boost Your Health comes in. By combining positive, habit inducing commands (some would call affirmations), with music that facilitates learning, Mindful Measures has accelerated the adoption rates for new habits for our clients between 5-10X!  The best part, is that it’s SUPER easy-to-use. All they had to do was listen to the CD or MP3 soundtrack while driving, working, or getting ready in the morning.
