Faith is the primary building block of my program. It lays the foundation for everything else I teach. With it, you will never look back. Without it, you will likely become frustrated and feel miserable on a regular basis.
When I mention the importance of Faith and losing weight, most people assume I am only talking about religion. For the record, I am not. Please don't hear me wrong. I believe having a personal Faith in God can be the cornerstone to a permanent life change. Not only does He offer you His supernatural strength when you need it most, but you also have the feeling you are not trying to "do it" alone. A major part of my mission is helping people integrate their belief in God, into their program.
However, there is another element of Faith I want to mention.
It's Faith in YOU and the belief you are finally going to achieve your goals and stay on the road to wellness for the rest of your life, despite the fact you may have failed a hundred times in the past. Now, I'm going to keep it real. Faith is pretty easy to practice when you are starting out. Haven't we all been "gung-ho" after that first week when the scale takes a drastic dip down? But know this: Faith is the also the easiest thing to lose when you face a bump in the road.
In your past attempts, whether you went overboard one weekend on junk food, or found excuses to skip exercise for a while, or perhaps you have lost weight in the past, and now you've gained it back. The circumstances or situations are never the real reason why you threw in the towel. And no, you didn't "fall off a wagon", either. You simply lost Faith in You. And it happened as you allowed the shame of some poor choices make you believe you are always going to be doomed for defeat.
In every book I've written I make it a priority to give you the tools to fight this from happening...
You see, for years I lacked faith in MY ability to lose weight and get in shape, even though I had a strong Faith in God. When I finally decide that failure wasn't an option, my Faith began to increase every time I got back up from a fall. If starting out you will begin to understand this key element and combine both Faith in God and Faith in yourself, that ultimately comes from God, you will never be the same and you will lose all the weight and gain a new life at the same time.
