One of our members just had a big A-ha moment I have to share with you.
She was reflecting on the fact that making Weighless choices requires some effort. Awareness takes effort. Planning takes effort. Making decisions takes effort.
(Fortunately, we have an entire curriculum of tools designed to help you build and strengthen these skills and practices.)
But, she realized, the Weighless approach does NOT require a lot of willpower.
“The effort I’m investing in weighing less feels EASY because there’s desire and passion behind it. Using willpower, on the other hand, feels torturous and lasts shorter periods.”
That’s why relying on willpower never gets you very far…or at least not for very long. And why the sort of shifts experienced in the Weighless Program are so long-lasting (and far-reaching).
As another of our members recently shared:
For me, the difference in this program from other “diets“ is that this is the first time I’m truly focused on myself and my habits rather than the food. It’s not about saying goodbye to things I really like but learning how to incorporate them in an overall healthier way that leads to satisfaction…and a Weighless life.
How about you? Can you sense the crucial difference between the willpower required to lose weight and the kind of effort that it takes to become someone who weighs less?
