“Make good things happen for yourself or bad things will surely happen to you”
By Rich “Slayer of Stubborn Fat” Tweten CPT, Author

After you make new and empowering decisions related to living a healthier lifestyle, I’m sure you’ll realize that there are more actions you’ll need to perform on an everyday basis.

This will take greater personal effort, but if you don’t take the necessary actions that are needed now, it will take far greater energy in the future to start living a healthier lifestyle and to deal with the painful consequences which will follow.

So, don’t get overwhelmed by looking at all the work that needs to get done.

Instead, I encourage you to focus on taking everything one day at a time, or should I say one step at a time! By taking small but consistent steps of action to slay stubborn fat on a daily basis, you’ll succeed in adopting these “PFL90: The Ultimatte Psychologically Based Fat Loss Plan” found on the author’s website.

Coming up, you’ll find an assignment with questions that are brought to your attention in a simple, step-by-step format.

Simply print off this article – then write down your answers, or create a text file and type them out as you go.

Here is your goal for this assignment…

To learn how to improve your chances of taking the right steps of action on a consistent basis so you can slay stubborn fat rapidly!

There are 2 preventable and potentially devastating reasons that people use to justify the fact they aren’t taking the action that’s needed in order to realize the great physical results they want to experience.

The first one is called procrastination. When people procrastinate, they normally have a list of excuses as to why they aren’t acting in a productive manner. They feel that those excuses are legitimate and try to live guilt free. Maybe they are legitimate excuses, yet they are still excuses!

From the way I see it, the only way a person can’t start to take small but consistent steps of action to slay stubborn fat is if they’re in a grave!

We all have the same amount of time in a day and it’s up to us in terms of how we use that time.

There are no dress rehearsals in life, so we should all strive to use our time as wisely as possible.

The second preventable and potentially devastating reason is called giving up.

By giving up there is absolutely no hope for a person to realize their fat loss goals and the only thing they can do from there is dream about what could’ve been and deal with the regret and painful consequences to follow.

It’s obvious that you haven’t given up since you’re reading my words right now. Therefore, we’ll focus on the biggest excuses people use to cover up procrastination.

Workout in your head

Excuses Related To Time

Question 1: Identify all of the excuses you’ve used in the past and present to avoid taking the appropriate steps of action so you can slay that unwanted stubborn fat. Remember, that these excuses are all a form of procrastination. Afterwards, remind yourself how you were affected by using those excuses instead of working towards your fat loss goals. Lastly, I’ll provide a few tips that will help you to eliminate each excuse.

Example Of An Excuse Related To Time: I told myself in the past that I didn’t have the time to exercise. With the kids, work and my other responsibilities it seemed impossible to take the time to look after myself.

Example Of How I Was And Will Continue To Be Affected By Using That Excuse: By using that time-related excuse I missed out on 2 years of my life when I could’ve been healthier while feeling better about myself. If I continue to use that excuse, then I’ll gain more body fat and will lose extra energy as a result.

Tips From Rich: Ask yourself how you can afford not to have the time! Making the time to exercise should be near the top on your list of priorities since your body is your most precious possession. It’s a possession that you’ll never be able to replace. By taking the appropriate action steps to improve your health and slay stubborn fat, you’ll gain energy and will become more efficient in the day and as a result, get more done!

Look at your calendar and block off all the times when you’re booked up with usual responsibilities. Fit in three, 20 minute time slots for your weight training and cardiovascular workouts on alternate days of the week, or even on the same days if you wish.

If you can’t find the time for exercise then you’ll need to cancel something else out that isn’t as high of a priority.

Also, I’d encourage you to workout in the comfort of your own home, since this is more convenient than training at a gym. Make sure to schedule in your workouts ahead of time so you’ll have the peace of mind knowing that you already fit them into your schedule.

Excuses Related To Money

Example Of An Excuse Related To Money: Currently, I don’t have much money to buy a gym membership and the food I need in order to lose fat. I can’t look after myself since I need to look after my family first.

Example Of How I Was And Will Continue To Be Affected By Using That Excuse: By using that money-related excuse I now can’t fit into my good clothes that I used to wear. If I continue to blame my lack of activity and proper nutrition on a lack of funds, then I’ll gain more fat and won’t feel as good about myself. Not only that, but I won’t have the energy needed to take care of my family.

Tips From Rich: If you can’t afford to purchase a gym membership that costs roughly $25 to $50 dollars a month, then I suggest looking for ways to fit it into your budget. If you’re looking to purchase in-home workout equipment, simply think of all the ways in which you can save money during the month. You can cut down on going out to eat, coffees, smoking etc. Keep cutting out unnecessary expenses until you can afford the tools that are needed so you can achieve your fat loss goals.

As far as eating the right food goes, this shouldn’t be a problem for you financially since good food normally doesn’t cost more than the unhealthy alternative. If it is a stretch, perhaps use money-saving coupons to bridge the gap.

If you’re truly living on a shoestring budget then I encourage you to invest in a reasonably priced set of free weights, a bench and a stability ball that should come with a one-time cost of $200 dollars, or less. With this inexpensive option, you won’t need to buy a gym membership or more expensive in-home workout equipment and can still take the action that’s needed to get great results from your exercise plan.

Excuses Related To Energy

Example Of An Excuse Related To A Lack Of Energy: At this time in my life I don’t have the energy to exercise, due to my hectic work schedule.

Example Of How I Was And Will Continue To Be Affected By Using That Excuse: By using that lack of energy-related excuse I haven’t gained energy in the day and it’s only gotten worse. If I continue to use that excuse then I fear that I’ll become heavier and my performance will suffer as a result.

Tips From Rich: If you have a lack of energy, then realize that there’s a reason for that. Could it be possible that you have low energy because there’s not enough activity in your life? A more active body is a more energetic one! The new activities that your body isn’t used to will force you to become stronger and fitter. Everyday activities will become easier as a result.

Great job!

Hopefully you’ve now decided to eliminate any excuses that you’ve been using to avoid exercise and healthy eating. After standing up to your own excuses and dismissing them, you’re now free to take the small but consistent steps of action that will slay the stubborn fat all over your body!

How can you ensure that you’ll continue to take the correct steps of action on a regular basis? The answers lie in the next and last step that relates to weight loss management

Step 1 – You Must Transform Your Body Now!

“The first step towards transformation is awareness”
By Rich “Slayer of Stubborn Fat” Tweten CPT, Author

Have you accidentally programmed your body to be fat for life?

That’s an incredibly scary thought, yet it may be true!

Remember back to a time when you made the decision to slay stubborn fat.

Once motivated, I’m sure you did whatever you believed was necessary at the time to drop those ugly and unwanted pounds.

Did you go on a diet?

Did you start an exercise program?

Did you buy a fat loss product that promised amazing results?

Regardless of the path you chose, obviously your efforts were not fully rewarded since you’re here with me right now.

Even the most effective actions for slaying stubborn fat and improving health mean nothing, if you have unconsciously programmed your body to be fat for life.

What stopped you before and may continue to prevent you from achieving rapid and permanent fat loss results?

It definitely isn’t your body.

Instead, it’s your mind that orders your body to respond to its every command!

To actually achieve rapid and permanent fat loss results, it’s essential to install a new and positive program into your mind.

Otherwise, your body will have no other choice but to follow the old and negative programming that has brought you disheartening fat loss results in the past that comes with a guarantee for fat loss failure in the future.

This positive program will allow you to create and own your new body, instead of renting mediocre fat loss results, if any!

Coming up, you’ll find an assignment with questions that are brought to your attention in a simple, step-by-step format.

Valuable insight and self-actualization will be yours for the taking.

However, before you answer the first question, make sure to open a text file so you can simply type out the answers as you advance.

Here is your goal for this assignment…

To take responsibility for the body you’ve created and increase your awareness about why you need to achieve rapid and permanent fat loss results, then make the decision to get started.

This is going to sound strange, but you need to trust me on this.

Create a private moment for yourself and strip off your clothes.

Yes! I mean it.

Strip off and look in the mirrorKeep your underwear on, or get into a bathing suit and walk over to a mirror (ideally a full length one) and stand in front of it.

Ask yourself the following list of questions as you study your body.

I’d like you to verbally respond to all of the questions and then type out your answers.

For the record, this assignment is intense!

It needs to be in order for you to feel the tenacious drive to create a positive lifestyle transformation and as a result, an improved self-image and new-found happiness.

Question 1: What is your immediate reaction when you stare at the body you’ve created? Make certain that you’re standing in a relaxed position and speak out the feelings that enter your mind.

Question 2: Do you believe that your inner health is being affected in a negative way when your body is living in this state? If so, how? Think of your heart, lungs and arteries, etc.

Question 3: How is the condition of your body affecting your everyday attitude, productivity and performance?

Question 4: How is the condition of your body affecting the people around you and the way they treat you?

Question 5: What has your physical condition cost you in the past and present? Think of your health, self-esteem and other areas that have been affected such as your family, relationships and career.

Question 6: Do you understand why you look and feel the way you do? What are some unhealthy habits which contributed towards that result? Think about inactivity and poor nutrition.

Question 7: Imagine how you will look and feel in 5 years from now if you continue to pick-up more unhealthy habits. How about 10 or 20 years?

Question 8: Describe your physical appearance right now after answering the first 7 questions. Are you smiling, frowning or sad? Yell it out with emotion!

Question 9: Do you know of anyone who is at least 5 years older than yourself and has a similar lifestyle as yours? Assuming that you’re both of the same gender and have a similar bone structure, answer the following questions:

In your opinion, how does that person look and feel?

Do you think that person is happy?

Are you going to allow yourself to look and feel a similar way as this person in the future?

Question 10: Are you worth more than what you see in the mirror?

Question 11: Are you ready to work towards rapid and permanent fat loss results?

If you answered “Yes” to the last question, then way to go!

On the other hand, if you answered “No”… don’t worry, you’re just not ready to commit to a new, healthy lifestyle for a healthier mind and body.

Continue to live your life as happily as can be.

If you change your mind in the future, only then do I want you to continue on from here.

If you haven’t answered all of the previous questions, then I encourage you to go back and complete them.

Since you’ve now decided to work towards rapid and permanent fat loss results, understand that you’ve unlocked the magical door that’s at the beginning of your pathway to a heavenly body!

In this next step, you’re going to get excited and have fun as you set your realistic weight loss goals using visualization…
