A Weight Loss Study
by Shawn Lebrun

You can do anything that anyone else has done. You can have anything that anyone else has. You can be anything that some else already is.

How? Because they already have accomplished it so you know it can be done. The variable is how hard you are willing to get the same results someone else has.

I am not trying to say be like someone else here. I am saying that if there is something you want to have or be in this lifetime, make a study out of what other successful people have done to get it.

Make a habit out of studying successful people and begin doing what they've done or what they advise. Sure, there are going to be some limitations and some setbacks.

You will probably not be able to play pro baseball or basketball if you are in your 50's.

You may not be able to be president of the United States if you've failed to graduate school.

A Weight Loss StudyThat does not and should not mean you do not set lofty goals for yourself.

The habit of study comes after accepting responsibility and thinking about what it is you want to achieve with your body and health.

In order to achieve great fitness and weight loss results, you must bridge the gap between where you currently are and where you want to be.

What this means is, you have to find a way to get from where you currently are (or are not) to where you want to go.

It's the same principle as using a roadmap. You use a map to get from Point A to Point B without blindly driving around trying to find your destination.

Learning to bridge the gap from where you are to where you want to go can be done more easily if you model, or copy, after someone that has already achieved some of the same things you want to achieve.

For example, say that your best friend recently lost 20 pounds and looks great. Why not ask them how they did it and then, providing they lost the weight in a reasonable manner, copy what it is they did.

Two things must be figured out when you are trying to bridge the gap between success and failure.

First step in the process is you must ask yourself "Where am I currently at in my fitness endeavors?

Does anything even need to change? Am I overweight? What do I weigh? What is so emotionally painful with being overweight?

What are my alternatives? If I do not do anything right now to change, do I want to spend another week, month, or year like I am right now?

Take a peek into the future? Where do you see yourself in 6 months to a year if you continue heading the in same direction you are heading now. Will your health be negatively affected or just your self-esteem.

What is it I am doing in my workout routine that is not producing results. What is it in my nutrition that is not working? If everything that needed to be done was getting done, I would be seeing better results, so something is not working for me.

A Weight Loss StudyAfter you determine where you currently are, you know must then find out where it is you want to go.

What do I want to weigh? How do I want my clothes to fit? How much energy would I like to have? What size do I want my waist to be?

If I change for the better right now and start implementing a proper fitness program, what will I feel and look like in 6 months or a year. What size will I be or what brand new clothes will I be able to fit in.

What is it I would be ultimately happy with achieving in the realm of fitness and weight loss. In crystal clear terms, what do I want to achieve.

When you find that answer, that is going to be your destination.

To achieve fitness and weight loss success, you must bridge the gap that lies between where you currently are and where it is you want to end up.

When you determine where it is you want to end up, you need to make certain choices and certain decisions about how it is you will get to your destination.

The quickest way to get there is to follow someone else who has already achieved what it is you want, model after someone that has figured out what works and what doesn't.

This could be a friend, family member, or personal trainer.

In this case, it will be learning and copying some of the steps in this book.

There are certain "no matter whats" when it comes to losing weight, gaining muscle or strength, or any other fitness goal you may have.

Much like certain principles or laws, like the law of gravity, these "no-matter-what's" will work 100% of the time, whether you like it or not.

If you do certain things, than you will achieve weight loss, no matter what. Whether you like it or not is irrelevant, they will work.

You can have anything you want in life if you copy others that have achieved what it is you are looking for. If you want to learn about the stock market, read a book by Warren Buffet. If you want to learn a new language, pick up a Spanish book.

A Weight Loss StudyI am going to help you with weight loss success. Not because I know everything, but because at some point, I had to make the same choice and I know the end result of that choice. Experience of others can save you a lot of time.

It's not what you know or do that matters, it's what you know and do that produces results. Weight loss is 80% behavior. It comes back to the choices that we make, or do not make. So, in order to lose weight effectively and permanently, you must change your behavior, or those things that cause you to gain weight in the first place.

In fact, often the only thing that distinguishes successful people from unsucessful ones is direction.

You only get what you ask for in life, so ask for more. There are specific reasons behind why you either cannot lose weight or why the weight does not stay off. Until you uncover those reasons, weight loss will be minimal, at best.

It has to do with the choices you make each and every day. If you are stressed out from work, do you chose to workout or run to get rid of tension or do you plop down on the couch and eat an entire bag of Doritos.

The choices you make dictate the life you lead.

I do not like to offer my clients a "Band-Aid" approach to getting in shape. I want results to last. I am one of these people that want to know why both how and why something works. Other people are just happy knowing that it works.

But it only works as well as you want it to work.

So begin studying how others have achieved their goals and you too, can copy their success and achieve what you want to achieve as well.
