Be a farmer.
There’s something about long drives through the country, it gives you time to reflect, to think, in between listening to the Wiggles anyway
One thing that farmers know is that your results can’t be rushed
You can’t harvest a crop a day after it’s planted, you have to look after it day after day
There are natural laws that you can’t break, they can’t be skipped
Sure, you can enhance things, but you must follow the order
You know this applies to almost everything you do, whether that’s losing weight (and keeping it off) or growing your own tomatoes
Too often you try to look for shortcuts, forgetting that there is still progress to be had by following the natural order
And there is reward for you when you take the farmers approach
When you follow the natural order you get to keep the progress you’ve made
So what does this look like for you when it comes to losing 10 kgs?
Rather than following a strict meal plan that has no context in your life and you know is not something you can follow for more than 3-4 weeks
You focus on the kind of person you must become, the kind of person that is healthy
Things like controlling your portions
Changing your beliefs about having to eat everything in sight when you go to a party
Thinking you have to drink 6 pints in order to have fun
You have to eat dessert after dinner every night
The incredible thing is, when you decide to change your habits and beliefs around food, your results are just as fast as cutting out carbs for 4 weeks
Except, you keep the changes, you learn skills that will serve you when the weight loss stalls
The real question is: In 6 months time where will you be? Which method will have you further along your weight loss journey?
Be a farmer, the seeds you plant now, will be the crop you harvest in 6 months time
