    “To
    be a champ, you have to believe in yourself
    when
    nobody else will.”

    Sugar
    Ray Robinson
    (1920-1989,
    American boxer)

               I’m lucky. I’ve
    always believed in myself – even now when I feel insecure and have
    doubts. When I was younger, I was told I was less by those who
    mattered most. Then I grew up. And I made sure I grew strong. And I
    made sure I always had the total support of my self – no matter
    what.
    A
    lot of people who come to me for motivation, weight loss and fitness
    help don’t have any support at all. Instead, they hear how fat they
    are, how they couldn’t lose weight if their life depended on it,
    how they can’t do anything right, how worthless they are, how
    stupid and ugly they are, and a whole lot more. Life is tough enough
    without all that devious drama from one demon after another.
    Sometimes
    the weight loss part is the least of it. Sometimes it’s just
    proving to yourself that when all else fails you can do something,
    anything, that’s positive and good for you, too.


    Begin
    now to prove to yourself that you’re stronger than those who say
    you can’t; stronger than any favorite foods that are keeping you
    fat; stronger than being lazy and not getting out to exercise daily.
    I
    know for me, besides my sometimes dicey physical situation, it became
    an issue of control – if I could do nothing else right in my life,
    I could have command over how much I ate and how much I exercised
    daily.
    This
    was at a time when everything in my life was out of my control, and I
    mean everything, or so I thought.
    I
    figured if I could do nothing else right, if nothing was working in
    my favor, I could at least learn to gain power over my self, my
    eating, my weight loss and my daily walking.
    I
    did everything I could, including calling on a higher power, to
    convince myself that I could do it, that I could lose those 150
    pounds I needed to lose and I wasn’t stopping until I did.
    Being
    master of my fate means more to me than staying fat, more than all
    the chocolate, all the sweets, all the breads, pastas, potatoes,
    rice, cookies, cakes, pies, ice cream, or Ding-Dongs on the planet.
    It
    has to mean more to you, too.
    So,
    stop foolin’ around. Get on with it. You know what to do by now.
    You know how to eat right. You know that you have to exercise daily.
    There is no other way to get the weight off. And keep it off.
    Besides,
    summer’s just around the corner. If you think you’re
    uncomfortable right now – just wait . . .
    To
    be a champ, you truly have to believe in yourself when
    no
    one else will.
