Are you interested, or are you commited?

If you have gotten this far, it probably means you are interested in making some improvements in your life, maybe its weight loss, ripped abs, or you might not even know! This could be your first step or your 10th step. Before you go any further you might want to ask yourself are you interested, or are you committed to change?

What’s the difference?
If you're "interested" in losing weight... If you're "committed" to losing weight...
You stick with it only until something better comes along (such as doughnuts) Nothing stops your efforts. You stick with your diet, "no matter what."
How you feel determines your outcome. If you don't 'feel like it,' you stop your efforts. Emotions don't control your actions. You stay on track even when you don't feel like it.
You need to see results. When the scale doesn't move, you lose your motivation. Your motivation isn't linked to the scale. You assume that if you stay motivated and work hard, you'll eventually see results.
You blame everything else (people, travel, circumstances) for your struggles with staying on your diet. You don't depend on other people for your success. You know it's up to you, not them.
Whenever you face challenges in life, you give up and plan you'll start your diet again tomorrow. A bad day or a lot of challenges don't affect your efforts. You keep going in spite of it.

Which one are you? Maybe you don’t know yet, and that’s ok…at least you know the difference now, and you can spend your money wisely or not at all.

 The hardest part isn't the hour you will spend in the gym with me, it is looking inside yourself and finding the commitment to change the habits that make you unhealthy and unhappy. You can’t accept the new healthier happier you into your life until you are willing to let the old one go! That’s the way it works.

So are you interested? Or are you committed?
