I want to weigh 145 again this year and maintain that weight for the next twenty years, with twenty to twenty-five percent body fat.
What resources do I have now?
I have used three good eating plans and lost weight on them. I have just lost 12 pounds. I am still eating well on that plan.
I have learned to enjoy bicycling and have always enjoyed walking. Both of those will help me with the body fat.
I know how to use weights for maximum growth.
I have several good books to encourage me forward.
I have enough money to buy whichever kind of food I need.
What resources do I need to acquire?
I need to know that I can meet this goal. I have met this goal before, even after having children. So I can, in fact, meet this goal.
I can see myself standing on the scale and having it read 144.8 and 145. I can see it calculating body fat and saying 22%. And I get off and dance around the room!
Have I evidence of achieving this before?
I need to lose 20 more pounds. I have lost 20 pounds before. I lost more than that on Quick Weight Loss and on Body for Life.
I lost down to 145 when we lived in Abilene, after Elijah was born. So I have weighed 145 as an adult and as a parent.
What happens if I act as if I have the resources?
My weight will drop. I will continue to lose weight. I have done it before and I can do it again.
I will maintain the weight because I have often done things for years: driven, studied, walked, etc.
What is the real purpose?
To look good for Ron.
To be healthy.
What will I lose or gain if I have it?
I will lose weight.
I will lose excuses.
I will gain a new wardrobe.
I will gain a healthier body and a longer life.
I will gain more self-confidence.
What will happen if I get it?
I will look hot.
I will get new clothes.
I will act more self-confident.
What will not happen if I get it?
I will not get old and fat.
I will not die young.
I will not develop medically-caused bipolar disorder.
I will not attract creeps because I’ll still be older. But I will look good.
What will happen if I don’t get it?
I will weigh more.
I will be more likely to develop adult onset diabetes.
What won’t happen if I don’t get it?
I won’t ever get my pictures taken.
I won’t get a great new wardrobe.
