Why Your “Why” Matters if You Want to Change Your Body

When I was in my early 30s, I had a goal to weigh 107 pounds.

This was my goal weight because that’s what I had weighed in high school. So I was on a mission to lose roughly 15 pounds – just so I could weigh 107.

That’s all I could focus on. So I counted calories and weighed myself multiple times a day.

And I came pretty close to my goal. At one point I was down to 110.

But I was so sick of forcing myself to do killer workouts and eating basically nothing that it was a relief to stop working so hard. So I pulled back.

I went back to my usual way of eating, shoving down all my favorite comfort foods.

And then the weight came back – just like it always did. And I went right back to hating my body – and ate some more.

Then I gathered all my willpower and went back at it. And did it again and again.

And I never did get to my cherished goal weight.

You may be able to relate to this, and if so this week’s video is for you.

In the video I’m going to explain why changing your “why” is so critical. And I’m going to tell you exactly how to do it. I’m also going to give you a few pro tips that I use to speed up the process of transforming your body.

If the why behind your counting calories, cutting carbs, and doing sprints on the treadmill is just to lose weight, you’ll never get anywhere.

You can save yourself a lot of pain and suffering by simply changing your why. It’s simple, yet powerful.

And trust me, it’s a lot easier to get to your goal weight . . . when it’s no longer your goal!
