Did you ever see the movie Jerry Maguire?
The one with Tom Cruise where he’s the sports agent and he and Cuba Gooding Jr.
yell "Show Me The Money!"
It’s kind of a sappy, stupid love story, but there’s one scene that a lot of
people remember where the cute little chubby kid says "Did you know the human head weighs 8 pounds."
Everybody laughs and oohs and ahhs at how cute the chubby little kid with
glasses is, but did you know that those same 8 pounds can make or break whether or not you lose fat?
I don’t mean you need to figure out how to lose fat from your head (cut your
hair?), I’m talking about that thing inside your head.
I’m talking about self-belief and self-confidence.
When it really comes down to it, how to lose fat comes down to believing in
Yes, you need to perform some fat loss workouts and have a proper nutrition
plan, but if you really want to know how to lose fat, you need to figure out how to properly use that ball of mush
in your head.
If you don’t believe in yourself and don’t believe that you can achieve your
goals, more than likely you are not going to succeed and you’ll keep on wondering how to lose fat and wondering why
This is a problem I have seen a lot over the years training clients both in
person and via the web.
Self-confidence and self-belief are the two biggest
factors that people struggle with time and time again when it comes to how to lose
You may believe it’s possible for other people to succeed in losing fat, but you
wonder whether or not you can do it.
You wonder if you have the self-discipline to cut back on the junk food and
stick with the workouts.
You wonder what’s going to happen if you show up at a party and refuse all the
tasty treats being presented to you. Will people think you’re some sort of a health nut? Will they perceive it as a
slap in the face?
You wonder what will happen if you fall off the wagon and eat an entire bag of
Oreo’s. Will that ruin the healthy weight loss diet plan you’ve been sticking to religiously for the past few
I’m here to tell you that I believe in you and I know you can
I know that you can achieve what you set out for. I know that you know how to
lose fat, but that I’m here to help you along the path.
You can do it just as easily as anyone, but you have to believe
You have to flush out all those negative thoughts you have floating around your
You have to tell that little devil sitting on your shoulder telling you that you
can’t do it to take a hike.
Self-belief and self-confidence also goes hand in hand with desire and
determination. If you don’t have the desire, not just the want, but the desire to lose fat and better yourself then
you’re probably going to quit whenever something gets a little tough or you feel like you’ve had a bad
However, if you find something that really gets you going
emotionally...something that you can hold on to whenever times get tough, something that will keep you motivated
and increase your belief and confidence in yourself then you can succeed.
For most parents that something is their kids. For others it’s just the desire
to look better both in and out of your clothes.
Both of those are great reasons, but you really have to want it. It’s got to be
a reason that will make you drag your butt out of bed on a cold day to do your workout.
It’s got to be something that jumps up and slaps you in the face when you decide
you want to quit and eat an entire bag of chips.
It’s got to be something that will help build your self-confidence and
self-belief until you no longer need that emotional crutch.
What’s yours? If you don’t know, figure it out now because it’s very, very
You also need to figure out what the obstacles are going to be that are going to
stand in your way.
Figure out what they are and get rid of them, or find a way around
Are you always tempted by the drive-thru on your way to and from work? Find a
Does the vending machine call your name in the middle of the day? Pack some
healthy snacks so you won’t splurge.
Are there certain social situations where you know you’ll be tempted to eat and
drink poorly? Plan ahead so you won’t feel hungry during that occasion.
Sit down and think about all these things, write them down and read them every
I know you can succeed, but you have to believe and you have to find your reason
There will be times when it gets tough, that’s just a fact. But if you keep on
believing and putting into action the things I instruct you to...you will lose lots of fat and you will keep it
All you need to do is believe in yourself, find your reason why, and keep on
I believe in you, and I can show you how
to lose fat and get the body you’ve always wanted.
