One of the most important things I learned through my transformation, is that you need to become mindful of your routines. I was very bad at mindlessly wasting time daily, without actually noticing, or being completely aware that I was actually doing it. I would come home from school or work, warm up my unhealthy high carb and fatty dinner and sit down on the couch for 3-4 hours of mindless television watching. I had formed an unhealthy habit and didn’t even know it.
What motivates you? What reason do you have to work hard or to change yourself?
Based on the lens through which we each see the world, we will each have our own motivations. Some of these may be similar between people, while others motivations may be radically different.
Regardless, if you feel the need or desire to change, you must have a reason to do so.
I get a lot of questions when I meet people who have noticed my transformation. The most common question is “How did you do it?”
People want to know HOW I lost 75 pounds and have managed to keep it off.
