Is it too late to start a New Year’s Resolution? I’ve been meaning to do this for months, but of course, life gets in the way and here we are in September and, well, you know… The point is, I still want to do it. The biggie. The one that is on my list every year. Lose Weight! Besides, a new season of The Biggest Loser started this week and I’m motivated.
How am I going to try this time? Maybe you remember The Wiz posting last May about how her brother was turning his program for juvenile delinquents into a weight loss program. If I’m honest, when I first heard about it, I kept thinking that the Belief Workout was going to be like the “Think System” from The Music Man. La dee da dee da dee da dee da. Maybe I could sit on my butt and think my way into looking like Heidi Klum. That would really be my kind of workout. Anyway, I threw caution to the wind and attended my first webinar tonight. The webinar thing is great because going to a live class in Springville, Utah is just not an option for me.
After finishing the 1 hour class I realized that maybe these guys were really on to something! I mean, even on The Biggest Loser, you have to break through the psychological reasons for your obesity before having the ability to not only lose weight but keep it off! Usually that happens for them after Jillian Michaels screams in their face for hours and makes them cry (which would only make me want to punch her in the face). The Belief Workout is designed to get at the root cause or the error in your thinking, change the belief which will result in a change of behavior which will result in Heidi Klum. Or at least the older, shorter, darker version of Heidi Klum. It is a 6 week program followed by a period of phone coaching (motivational phone calls which I’m curious to hear).
So hear we go. I’m not going to give a starting weight, because quite frankly, it’s too humiliating for me and vanity won’t allow me to say it. I will say that my BMI (body mass index) is currently 30.9 which is technically obese. Anything over 30 is obese. Crap. My goal will be to get to a BMI of 24. A range of 18.9 to 24.9 is “normal”. That calculates into around 40 pounds for me.
I’m going to try to post weekly about my progress and hope that by the real New Year, I’m a newer and better thinking me.
