Immersion in the Solution

Immersion in the Solution

     All in or Part-time?  OK, we said that in 2020 we wanted to drop our excess body fat and get down to a lean and healthy weight.  We sounded committed,  we really wanted it , and yet here we are in the second month of the year struggling to get on track.  What's the problem.  We are trying to do it part-time.  I don't mean you must quit your job, abandon your family, or stop having any personal time or fun.  But, If we are really going to do this, this year, we must immerse ourselves in the solution. We can't focus on the problem.  We must live every day in the solution.
     The solution is our daily action plan.  Yes, Daily.  We can't eat properly and perform physical activity just a few days a week.  It must be front of mind every day and action must be taken.   We will not be perfect, but we will be focused and taking action on the solution.  If you need something to help calm the appetite, seek treatment.  If you need to get an accountability partner, get one.  If you need to clear the house of unhealthy snacks, clear it.
     Action is what matters.  The rest is just talk.  Living in the solution means focusing and acting on the things that will truly matter to our getting the outcome we desire. This requires total immersion.  Don't just put a toe in the water, dive in. Setting a weight achieving goal, or a clothes size goal, or a fitness goal is an outcome goal.  The outcome goal cannot be attained without setting performance  goals.  An outcome will not happen without breaking it into smaller performance goals.  I cannot control the outcome, but I can control the performance.
     What is the performance needed to achieve my best weight and level of fitness?  Its planning our lower calorie diet and tracking it. It's establishing a physical activity plan and holding ourselves to it.  It can be logged and tracked.  It's scheduling with a doctor or coach that can help you and track you and hold you accountable.
     Would we treat Diabetes by ourselves?  Would we treat High Blood Pressure alone?  Would we treat heart disease by ourselves?  Of course not.  Then why do we treat the disease of Overweight or Obesity without professional help.  I realize that many Doctors and Nutrition specialists can be condescending and not very helpful.  No problem, get a different one.  After all, it's your life and your body.
     Decide today that this year WILL be different and that taking daily action on what matters is not a want, but a MUST.  The answers to getting the body we want and deserve are out there.  Sure, it is confusing, with all the different diet plans and myths and bad advice about weight loss.  This is for you.  It doesn't matter what your friends, co-workers, and family members think or say. It matters what we do.
     I personally know that this is a struggle.  I live with it every day of my life. Part of my brain wants to forget about it and just eat cookies and pizza.  If I give into that part of my brain, I am destined to an unhealthy and shorter life.  None of us want that.  I'm here with you and if you're not sure where to go or what to do, my staff and I are hear for you.  We can be reached through our website  Download my free book today.  We'll see less of each other soon.
     Now, get ready and begin the Immersion process.  Dive in, the waters fine.  The answer is found by living each and every day In The Solution!

Snack Yourself Thin

We need to fuel our body at the right time with the right amount of food. Often we eat way too many calories at a setting and turn on the fat production machinery in our body. Small snacks throughout the day and a lean and green meal do the trick.

Yes or No

Decisions drive our life in a direction. We can choose that direction by the decisions we make. Decisions should be simplified to a Yes or No answer. Learn how to make better decisions and live the life you want.


Life is an adventure in itself. Sometimes we get stuck in a routine and forget to venture out to see new things, experience new experiences, and meet new people. We must resist getting stagnant and seek a life of adventure, even if its within us.

The Path to Excellence

We can all do better. We have many paths that we can choose to take in life. Each time we take a new path we can move in either a positive or negative direction in our life. Focusing on the positive little things daily can take us on the right path.


We all have regrets in our life. What we want to do is start living a life that has no regrets from this point forward. We don't want to have regrets about our health when we get older. We can do things now to avoid the regrets of disease and illness.

Personal Power

We are in control of our lives. At least we are in control of how we respond to what happens in our lives. Our health and all the other aspects of our life can be taken charge of. Become the director of your life and get fit and healthy now.
