Getting Into A Maintenance Plan

Alright guys, welcome to the 12th and final video on our 12 Week Fat Loss Road Map Program and this is the end of the program.

So, essentially what we want to do today is we want to recap what we’ve covered and what we have hopefully have achieved and if we haven’t really hit the mark or hit the goals of what we want to do or want to achieve, we’re going to look at what happened there and what you can do moving forward sort of, you know, make sure it doesn’t happen again or reevaluate and constantly change, you know, getting your goals and getting to where you want to be.  So with any goal or any process, a lot of people think it’s just a simple point A, point B but really, what it looks like in real life is it’s never a straight line, it’s always all over the place.  Now I do that to illustrate it to you because there’s going to be times where you felt this way, God knows I have.  When you try and change something or learn something new or, yeah, getting to a process, but really you just got to recognize that that’s normal and that it’s never cut and dry.  It’s always going to be ups and downs and things that you have to, yeah, worry about all that.

So, what I want to do is I just want to recap, yeah, your goals today.  What were they?  How you’ve grown so far, over the last twelve weeks?  Now, pretty much if you have really good goals and really clear goals and got a lot of driving motivation to achieve them, chances are you’ve gotten pretty close or, yeah, you achieved what you wanted to.  That’s going to be pretty small percentage; I’d say 20% people have got that far. The other 80%, watched the first video and then didn’t watch anymore or they said, well, I’ll start next week, I’ll start next week, they kept putting it off, put it off and didn’t even take any action, you know, to make a start and get started.  So, why you would ever do that, I don’t know, but you know, it’s just that’s life and it’s something that we have to go up against within ourselves.  That’s always going to be a problem.  And generally, what you find is, you know, you will get these people that New Year’s Eve rolls around, and said my New Year’s resolution is to get fit.  First of February, yeah, their gym membership is cancelled.  They’ve never been again.  So, the reason we want to highlight this now is because, it’s going to be a high percentage of people out there that are feeling this way that have done that.  And really, the question is you got to get honest with yourself and ask, you know, why this is happening or why did that happen and, you know, start the process again.  And those of you who have been in this program, because you’re going to have it forever that you can come back and look at.  Now, go back to step one, look at where you fell down, do a bit of self analysis, you know, did I do this really well, did I do that really well?  Can I pick up, you know, in some areas rather than others?  You know, even if you did do reasonably well, you know, there’s always things that you can do better and improve on, so it’s more about celebrating, you know, what you’ve done, what you’ve achieved, acknowledge that and then, you know, move forward into the next little thing.  Well, really for us, well for me anyway, so that becoming a lifestyle.

So, having the goal and what you’re moving towards is great but, you know, sometimes we want to remove the pressure of having to achieve a certain physical state or a certain amount of rep, or a certain amount of time.  You know, we want to be able to move towards the last hour and it’s always something that we’re moving towards, you know, we’re not moving away from it. It’s a start over, its just, you don’t need any discipline, it’s just something that you do.  That’s essentially what the twelve weeks is all about, I’m just trying to get you to that stage.  Now if you don’t feel like you’re right at that stage yet, at the last hour then I would, you know, like I said, go back, reevaluate what you might need to do better and work on that.  You just work on that until you feel like you’ve got it comfortable and then just revisit some of the other lessons and some of the other content.  Maybe your workout needs a bit of tweaking or maybe you need to go back and look at the mindset stuff.  You know, take the time go and do that.  Just a bit windy here at the moment, many trees blowing over. Just take those steps, you know, it’s pretty basic stuff. But just don’t get hijacked by your emotions and feel like you’re a failure or anything like that.  Just recognize that it’s part of the process and, you know, if you keep moving towards that lifestyle state then, yeah, you’ll get there in the end.  That’s really what we’re after.  Alright!

So moving forward, so we’ve got our week twelve program below this video, and our guidelines for you want to be working on this week.  And for those of you that have got, you know, change of habits and done really well, good on you.  You’ve made a great change and a great effort there.  Really, what’s the next step for you guys, so the next part of the program it’s pretty much just keep doing what you’re doing.  Keep it up.  It’s pretty simple, you know.  You’ve gone through the hard work, done the learning, put it into action, start to get some results.  Now you can make it part of your routine.  But inevitably, what will happen is you’ll fall off the routine, fall off the wagon and what we just want to do is we just want to make sure that we, yeah, remind ourselves of our goal or moving towards myself like if I’m not exercising as much as I should be, you know, I’ll make a lot more effort to eat well and, you know, do the other things that help, yeah, balance out your results and your health otherwise, yeah, I think about taking up, yeah, like a sport or try some different fitness things or something that keep you interested and motivated and moving forward.  If you’re in a gym, try different classes.  If you haven’t joined the gym yet and you just been doing some home work out, walk around the block, maybe thinking about, I don’t know, joining a gym, doing some classes.  There are so many things you can do.  Get creative, you know?  But essentially it’s just more living that healthy lifestyle and keeping that momentum up.  It’s incredibly important for the overall end results, and you know, keeping that weight off, especially like, if you’ve gone through, like a lot of people go through this kind of, yeah, weight goes up, weight goes down, weight goes up, weight goes down, and then eventually start creeping up, over their lifetime weight gain.  What we want to do is we want to go okay, weight loss and keep it off.  This is where this all comes together having the skills and having the tips, strategies, and the plan to keep you motivated or on track for twelve weeks and then basically delivering that to you in bite sized chunks, so you can use it and absorb it and then get the results.

So that’s pretty much where we’re going to leave it today.  Download that program.  Thanks for making it all the way through.  Hopefully, we’ll see you again soon.  If you got any feedback or got some great results you want to share, let us know on our Facebook page or in the VIP group and we’ll see you over there.  Thanks for participating and see you soon.

    The maintenance plan is something that most people who lose weight fail to implement, which can set the whole thing up not to last. I really love how you stress how important this is.

      We have a tendency as humans to fall back into old habits. If we have found it hard to change or stick to the change it might be because of our mindset, and short term focus. Also not having a plan and reevaluating goals along the way to stay motivated also helps.

      I teach my clients inside our members area the importance of this as it is often overlooked and forgotten about in other programs if we can keep these ideas in the front of our minds its much easier to maintain focus. Keep bringing it back to your why?, The reason you want to be healthy in the first place. Lock that in and draw on it to stay on track!

    This seems to be the key point that most people think about. After you loose weight, you have to make adjustments to keep the weight off or all of that hard work was for nothing. It is so hard to remember to not take your eye off the prize once you get there. It’s so easy to go back to old habits and gain it all back.

    I think it’s a common mistake to make resolutions that begin on a certain date, and then to give up completely if they fail. The whole healthy lifestyle is a process. We are going to have good days and bad days, but I think the key is to never give up and to do the best we can! I look forward to seeing what’s next!

    Once people lose weight, I think it is easy for them to go right back into their old habits and gain it all back. It takes work to maintain the weight loss. If it was easy, everyone would do it. I like how you said to bring it back to your why? Remembering why we want to be healthy and how we got there definitely helps.

    Never thought about this before, but it does sound great. Maybe I’ll look further into this. Thanks!
