Taking That First Step on a Diet and an Interview with Jorge Cruise

Six months ago I felt completely helpless and hopeless with my weight, I wanted to lose weight but I felt overwhelmed with the enormity of it all. And honestly, scared of the changes I might have to make to accomplish it. I had lost faith in myself. But I am happy to say, that by applying a few rules to the food I eat and sticking with them I completely changed my body and rediscovered myself.

I wanted to spend a little time talking about simply starting a diet, because really that is the hardest thing to do. For some reason seeing those numbers on the scale isn't motivation enough, your head has to be in exactly the right place to take those first steps and, as Nike says, just do it! So I would like to help you "get your head in the right place" and at the same time, keep my head there!

To start with I asked Jorge Cruise, author of the Belly Fat Cure, to give us some advice. Particularly for people who have more weight to lose and are feeling overwhelmed by even the thought of it.

It doesn't matter what diet you do, really. Just pick a plan, a plan to get you started moving in the right direction.  It just so happens that the Belly Fat Cure really clicked for me and that made it easy to do (most days). Believe in yourself and your ability to tackle and overcome your food issues, because you have the power within you to do this.

So this week, that is what I will be talking about, getting started and taking those first steps. If you have not already read Anthony's story, you should start there.

  1. Thanks so much for this! It has come just in time, as I've gained back about half the pounds I'd lost over the past month. Being a very creative person, I can't wait to start my motivation collage. :)

    That was such a GREAT interview...
    I didn't realize until I started losing the pounds that some of my kids were embarrassed by my weight. I had gained 60lbs in three years and thought that it was just my problem. The BFC has been the BEST program I have ever been on!! The visualization part is something that I will work harder at in the future. Thanks Amber!

  3. Love it!! Thanks so much for sharing :-)

  4. Amber - Nice to see you "animated" in the video instead of just a picture!

  5. Thanks guys!

    Harvey - I was way more animated than I normally am! I was really nervous and should have just stopped and listened. Live and learn!

  6. Exciting video!! :)
