2020 - The Year of Clear Vision

 In order to achieve a great goal, we must have a clear vision of what we want the result to be.  Without this clarity, it is impossible to know what it is we are trying to achieve.  Losing excess body fat requires a clear vision of the desired result.  If we just think, "I want to loss some weight", our brain and subconscious has no idea where it is going.
 
     Of course,  the title is a pun.  20/20 in Eye Doctor lingo is perfect vision.  2020 in goal setting, is perfect clarity of focus and of the goal.  We must give our subconscious mind a very sharp image of what we are working toward.  Think of shooting a bow and arrow (even if you have never done it).  The target is a series of rings that end in a small middle circle.  The bullseye.  Same with the game of darts.  In these sports, a clear and defined target exists and is what we are aiming for.
 
     With weight reduction, a clear target must be visualized.  It may be a past photo or ourselves before the weight gain.  It could be a photo of a model we are attempting to emulate.  Maybe putting our head and face on the model's picture can give us the desired outcome.  It may be a target weight number, or a percent body fat, or a level of fitness you are attempting to achieve.  Whatever the target, get a precise picture of it in your mind.
 
     This image whether imagined in our head or an actual photo must be visited often, at least every day.  Keeping the image in the front of our mind continues to define the outcome.  The greater the clarity of our end goal the more likely we are to achieve it.  Sounds hokey, but it truly works.  Sure, planning and work are required, but the planning and work become evident once the end vision is established.
 
     This imagery method works even better if the image is emotionally linked to a strong reason to accomplish the goal.  It's much easier to lose weight if the end result will reverse your diabetes.  The same is true if the end result is how you will look on your daughter's or son's wedding day.  When we link a strong "Why" to our goal, the strategies will come to us and the work needed will be for good reason.
 
     As you move into this year, 2020, develop a clear 20/20 vision of your end result.  Link a strong Why to your target.  Write out the plan you will follow on your journey to thin.  Record your progress and your thoughts daily.  Do the work each and every day.
 
     The end result will be a reward you had only imagined months earlier.  You will be fit, healthy, lean, and ready to move forward to live life to the fullest.  See it clearly, and it will come to pass.  Have Sharp vision, strong purpose and persistence to complete the goal
 
     2020  a Year for 20/20 vision.  Get clear, Get focused, Get Lean.

The Weight Loss Treatment Five. 

     To effectively lose weight and keep it off, there are Five aspects that must be treated.   If only one or two are addressed then the attempt will only partially succeed and long term weight control is not possible. 

Routine and Structure

We were made for success.  Part of being able to succeed is having a plan.  With that plan comes a set of goals, objectives, tasks, and timelines. 

Stress and Eating

 We're home. No place to go. Too much TV to watch.  Lots of computer screen time. Kids are home from school.  Husbands are under spouses' feet 24 hours a day.

Decisions and Distractions

 We find ourselves in a new and weird environment.  The COVID 19 virus has taken away what we thought was some stability and certainty in our lives.  That's the thing about life.  Is it really ever stable and certain?  Of course not. 

Get Healthy and Stay Healthy

   Right now the number one concern of Americans and everyone around the world is their health.  People are a bit frightened at the possibility of catching COVID 19 and becoming very ill.  Yes,  people are dying of this disease.

Speed

There's a natural tendency to approach life in a leisurely way.  True, there is great importance in slowing down and smelling the roses.
