As the Olympics have ended, I miss watching them and the features on the athletes. It was so inspirational to hear the stories of the athletes. Every day people doing extraordinary things. The commitment, dedication and challenges overcome they live every day is phenomenal. I lookforward to the next Olympics and seeing in action the inner strength each of them possess to be their very best.
If there was an Olympics for weight loss surgery patients, it would be touching and moving. Each of us have been morbidly obese and went through all the challenges and hits to our self-worth that experience does. As we made the decision to have surgery, the surgery, and the post-op journey is special and unique as each of us are yet we share the same commonalities of being a weight loss surgery patient. As we’ve had surgery and reinvented ourselves and our lives, it is the equivalent of our Olympic champions.
How do they do it? How do they keep their motivation and commitment? Of course, much of it comes from within. The highest achieving people have their own coaches. Tiger Woods, Lance Armstrong, the majority of CEOs of companies, Olympian athletes and the most successful of us have coaches. A coach is your partner to walk with you on the path from where you are now to where you want to be.
Coaching is not as expensive as many think. How many diets, cardboard food and expensive diet supplements have we purchased? Did they work? No! Coaching works because it is all about you and not some program or supplements. Coaching is the very best investment you can make in yourself. After all, you are worth it!!
You can achieve your highest dreams, goals, aspirations and live your best life. You are your own Weight Loss Surgery Olympian Champion. It is inside you!
