After experiencing any type of weight loss victory many people reach what is commonly called a “plateau.” Why, after practicing every tip and trick they can find for a few months does this happen? It happens because practice does not always make perfect; sometimes; practice makes permanent. If you stop challenging yourself to improve, you’ll become complacent. Continued improvement beyond any initial weight loss takes motivation, time and skill; and many people lack all three.

The Fitness & NEWtrition Educators at Get Fit, Eat Smart use 25 Healthful Skills to help you upgrade your ATTITUDE, discover your ABILITIES and develop the SKILLS you need to Eat More… Exercise Less… reach and maintain your FEEL GREAT WEIGHT!!!

It’s not about willpower…

Many people believe that it takes an incredible amount of willpower to lose weight. The truth is, “it’s not that some people have willpower and some don’t.

It’s that some people are ready to change and others are not.” –Heraclitus (540 BC – 480 BC)

The particular change required is really about acquiring the skills you need to reach and maintain your FEEL GREAT WEIGHT. The notion that weight loss can be fueled by willpower alone is at best wishful thinking, and at worst downright ridiculous. Yes, of course, will is required. Yes, of course, we need a heaping helping of personal responsibility. But before we can take responsibility, we must be empowered with the necessary attitude, abilities and skills. After all, mountaineers don’t scale Everest just because they want to; they need skills.

Willpower may get all the glory; but in the absence of skill power, it simply may not be possible to find, fashion, pave, and/or follow the path to better Fitness & NEWtrition. Here are some strategies to help you shift your thinking…
