Need help loosing weight?

Do you need help loosing weight? Have you tried almost every diet plan out there only to have failed again? For many people, the challenge of losing weight or implementing a healthier lifestyle is not due to a lack of information about WHAT TO DO for weight loss but rather WHAT AM I NOT DOING. It is the lack of consistency, and being unable to find a good action plan that can be adhered to and followed comfortably.

We all know that to improve our cardiovascular health and endurance, increase muscle tone, and lose weight effectively, we need to get more exercise, eat less, and make wiser food choices. And, we need to stop engaging in potentially self-destructive behaviors that threaten our health. Despite knowing these basic facts, however, many of us struggle to get on a balanced weight loss program and stick to it. We fail, trying to do it on our own, without the right kinds of support, tools, and resources.

Hiring a weight loss coach can help you identify what situations trigger your unhealthy behavior and help you identify ways in which you can avoid them. A coach can also assist you to replace “bad” behaviors with “good” behaviors.

Coaches will work with you to come up with solutions/strategies to assist you in your weight loss goals, whether it is to:

· Work with a personal fitness trainer

· Hire a nutritionist

· Join an exercise group/gym

· Find activities you enjoy to make getting healthy more fun

· Research clubs, groups, studios, etc. that will keep you interested and engaged in life

· Discuss and identify issues that keep you “stuck”

· Keep a food journal so you can see how you eat and identify patterns

· Learn more about healthy eating habits and vitamin supplements

· Drink more water and cut down on high-calorie drinks

· ….and numerous other strategies that are discussed jointly between you and your coach.

There are also many, many other factors that might be contributing to your situation. A professional coach can help you to uncover answers to these questions:

· What motivates you and how can you stay motivated?

· How does your attitude affect your success?

· How do loved ones sabotage your success and what you can do about it?

· What are your overeating “triggers”?

· How can you rebound from a setback?

· What is your internal dialogue saying and how can you overcome negative statements?

· How can one get past the inevitable “Plateau?”

Life coaching will assist you in exploring these issues that keep you from reaching your weight loss goals. An action plan will be developed in partnership with your coach to get you over the obstacles, and get you to where you want to be.

With a fitness and weight loss coaching plan, individuals receive weekly telephone coaching sessions, a detailed eating and workout plan, motivation and encouragement, and unlimited e-mail support. A coach is enrolled in helping you reach your goals and lose weight and they want to see you increase fitness levels, and improve your health, lifestyle and most importantly, your self-confidence.

Do You Need A Life Coach?

Life Coach

Today, life coaching has become such a popular topic. It seems that everyone is getting into personal development and finding the benefits of developing ourselves. Every week a seminar is conducted by a life coach somewhere. But, at what point is it time to say ‘yes, I need a life coach’ to improve what you do?

What is a life coach? The simplest definition is a walking encyclopedia! They literally have answers. But, whereas a book worm is someone who simply has the theoretical the life coach who is actively practicing is someone who has the practical, and not just the theory, and here is where they can benefit you.

Do you have a business and now want to grow it in size geometrically, exponentially? Do you want to get all round success in life? Or do you want to get fit, and healthy? A life coach can help with all these area, and there are some who generalize, while others are more specific.

The first point is to consider what you do, and where you need help in. For example if you want to improve your finances, and build wealth a Feng Shui life coach may not be the best option. Though Feng Shui is great and can help, the first concern should be to focus on the result you want. If you want a glass of water; 10 litres of Coca Cola will be no use!

The benefits a life coach can bring to the table are that they know the answers. In fact many of the life coaches have become successful because they themselves had a problem and found the solution. Another benefit that a life coach can give you is that they also have different clients from different areas and industries. This mixture of knowledge, which is in a broader view, can aid you in surpassing your competitors.

Finding a life coach and enlisting there help in the area of your needs also gives you the ability that they can see your business or problem from an external point of view. In effect they are ‘out of the box’, and can give you solutions which you likely could not see before. This benefit of life coaches is one which makes many companies and people dedicated to excellence to find a life coach and enlist there help.

Finding a life coach is not an easy process. Life coaching as a profession is a pretty new field. It was only a few years ago that life coaching was unheard of. The first point is to consider what you want the life coach to do exactly. In what area do you need help in? Remember the above point about the glass of water. There are many life coaches; however, if you need a specialist in direct marketing for business, many life coaches may not be able to give you full benefit.

Researching is key, and simply choosing the first life coach you find may not be the best way to go. Once you find a life coach, it is advisable to ask what they can bring to the table. In effect what can they do for you?
