How to Change Your Mind and Your Body for Powerful Transformation
Losing 20 pounds in a matter of months is no easy task.
You’ve got to be determined, strong-willed, and consistent with a commitment to follow-through.
Yet, in her mid-fifties, my client Effie did just that.
Before working together, before she ever lost a pound, she was mentally prepared.
As her trainer, we both knew the road wouldn’t be easy. But we both committed to stick through it, no matter how tough it became.
See her transformation picture above.
She trusted me with her diet, workouts, and overall guidance.
While I trusted that she had the confidence and physical capability to give her maximum effort.

How to change your mind
When attempting to change your lifestyle, your mind will try to come up with multiple excuses on why you can’t or shouldn’t do it.
Heres just a few I’ve heard from clients, current and potential:
“I’m too out of shape.”
”I’m too old.”
”I will just waste my money and your time trying to get in shape.”
”That works for her. But it won’t work for me.”
”I don’t know what I’m doing.”
”I’m never going to lose weight.”
“I’ll just gain the weight back. I’m not disciplined enough.”
But those thoughts are the result of what’s called a Fixed Mindset.
Dr. Carol Dweck popularized the term in research of her book Mindset.
“In a fixed mindset, people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. They spend their time documenting their intelligence or talent instead of developing them. They also believe that talent alone creates success—without effort.”
Meaning, no matter what, if you have a fixed mindset, you’ll believe your abilities are fixed.
There is another option however.
It is what’s called the Growth Mindset.
“In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment.”
So, see you do have a choice.
The mind is powerful and holds the key to your transformation.
Effie developed the growth mindset.
Many of the clients I encounter believe that they aren’t capable of change, only to later develop the confidence and strong mindset they’d wished for.
Remember, no excuse is worth more than your health.
