"Just tell me how to lose weight!" I love when I hear this, as though I can answer that in one sentence! Or yet alone, even one hour! Our first coaching session to get women started in the process is three hours long! And that's just to get them started! It takes at least 6 and 1/2 hours to get them through the entire Seven Step Process to Weight Loss Mastery.
But why can't I just answer the question? It's not that I'm trying to keep a secret from anyone; it's not that I'm "holding back" so you'll sign up for coaching. I'm not even trying to be "mysterious" (see photo. :)) to lure people in. It's that I can't answer that question without telling you everything involved in the process. It wasn't just one thing. And I know that disappoints people that I can't give them "the one answer", that magic bullet they so desperately want to hold onto. There is no magic bullet and I can't explain the process to you without leading you through it. And that is an investment of time and energy for both us.
So when people ask me how do you lose weight, I say "You know how to lose weight." They look at me like they really don't. I say "Oh, if you just really want to know HOW to lose weight, sure I can tell you that. I can tell you in one sentence. Even better, I can tell you in two words, then you can be on your way and please don't hire me." They look at me with eager anticipation of the magical answer they are about to receive and I say slowly for them... "Eat..... less!" They laugh, they smile and they nod their head yes. Then I say, "There you go... now go do it!" :) It's not that easy. And I know that. If it were that easy to "now go do it" then no one would be asking me how to do it.
Lovely ladies, it's really not difficult and it's not complicated. It is actually pretty easy to tell you the truth. It is indeed, an investment in time and energy for you to focus on this for yourself. I am more than happy to invest my time and energy leading you through. Come talk to me and find out more!
