When a client says to me, “It’s not working . . .” — trying to suggest that eating normal, regular, everyday foods from each of the food groups every day, using portion control, planning ahead and packing meals and snacks throughout the day, is the reason they’re not losing weight — what they’re really saying is, “It’s not me, it’s you.”
This gal won’t play.
In fact, it’s never me . . . it’s 𝙖𝙡𝙬𝙖𝙮𝙨 them!
When you start making excuses as to why you’re not losing weight, start asking yourself these questions instead:
❓ How badly do I want to lose weight?
❓ Why don’t I have what I want (being slim) already?
❓ What am I lacking?
❓ What do I need, specifically, to help me beyond excuses?
❓ What is the next step to take right now that will move me closer to my weight loss goals?
“It’s not working” means 𝙮𝙤𝙪’𝙧𝙚 not working, and that means you lack self-belief, motivation, creativity, patience, perspective and persistence. Those are all the qualities you need if you truly want to eventually make things work, if you truly want to get and stay slim. In fact, those qualities are absolutely essential for everything of value that you want to create or achieve in life.
Between the two of us – you, the client, and me – only one of us has serviced thousands of clients successfully for almost 30 years. You, on the other hand, have been habitually doing quick-fix dieting forever and ever, to which you could truly claim “It’s not working” . . . because they didn’t, which is what finally brought you to us.
✅ I have a multi-decades track record of successfully helping thousands of people of all ages, genders, and medical issues.
❌ You have a track record of perpetually dieting and never reaching or maintaining a healthy weight.
So, between the two of us, who’s not working?
Instead of accepting excuses, start accepting the reasons.
