MYST 154: Nothing for Nothing

TANSTAAFL: There Ain’t No Such Thing As A Free Lunch

You get what you pay for.

My phrase: You don’t get nothing for nothing.  (Yeah. I know it’s poor grammar.)

The bottom line is if you don’t take the right actions, you won’t get anything. That applies to school, on the job, at home, and certainly as you try to lose weight. Why do I say “try” to lose weight? Because many (most?) people aren’t willing to totally commit, to be fully engaged, or to put their money where their mouth is.

How many balls must be hit before a golfer becomes great? Can you skip that step in attaining greatness?

MYST 153: Gentle Exercise

Exercise is important, but it does not need to be painful, cost money, or require a membership at a fitness center. IT can simply be the act of getting off your LazyBoy recliner and start moving.

If she can get her daily steps, why can’t you?

MYST 152: The Basic Rules to Reach Any Goal (Scott Wilson, part 3)

If you want to succeed, you must first be willing to fail–over and over–without loss of enthusiasm. Does that describe you?

How many times did Bruce Lee fail before he was good enough to be memorialized by this sculpture?

MYST 151: The Secret to All Success (Scott Wilson, part 2)

In the second part of Scott Wilson’s interview, he talks about an action that, if you are unwilling to perform honestly, you have greatly reduced your chances of success. Then he tells you the secret attitude needed to overcome any obstacle, and finally, explains why golfing and hockey are a great metaphor for weight loss success.

Keep shooting, even if you miss!

Was Tiger Woods born to be a great golfer?

MYST 150: Are You Strong Enough (Scott Wilson, part 1)

Achieving any goal takes strength. Losing weight is no different, but physical strength is not as important as emotional strength. In today’s episode, we talk with longtime friend of Make Your Someday Today, and fellow LoseIt Moderator Scott Wilson. We first talked with Scott in MYST Episode 20, back in June 2014. Today he rejoins us to bring us up to date on his journey through life, and what he feels is the most important strength a person needs to reach life-changing goals.

The strength of Superman is not necessary to succeed.

And no, you don’t need to be Superman to succeed.

MYST 149: Failure

Is it possible to be working toward success and yet failing at the same time? Not only is it possible, you might be doing it right now.

It’s all about the choices you make.

Are your choices trapping you and setting you up to fail?

MYST 148: Participation Trophies

Weight loss is an unforgiving foe. There are no participation trophies given out because you “tried hard” and “always showed up.” The trophy is only given when you reach your goal and can be taken away if you regain your weight. So how can we deal with that?

Self-reward mini-goals!

MYST 147: BMI is accurate (mostly)

BMI is inaccurate, but so is every other type of measurement. However, for most people, it is a valid method of determining their weight status. Are you one of the “most people”? Probably.  And if you are, then your number is valid, whether you like it or not.

Are you walking your tracks alone or with support?

Here is a link to Episode 102 about how Anxiety can derail your weight loss efforts.

MYST 146: Exercise on Purpose

The US has a problem. Well, it has many problems, but a major health problem is that as a whole, we are overweight. Why are we overweight?

We eat too much and we don’t exercise. And most of our exercise is “exercise on purpose”. But what happened to “accidental exercise”? If we learn to add accidental (also known as “incidental”) exercise, we will help enhance our weight loss progress. This is not the magic bullet for weight loss, but it is another piece of the puzzle.

How are you going to add accidental exercise to your day?
