“Hey! What’s up? So I’m sitting here just doing some work, planning things out and doing some quiet contemplation and I was thinking about the issues that people bring up around certain topics and this is part of the Drama Vs. Data theme that I’ve been going with… so the Drama Vs. Data theme is you know when people get on the scale, are they creating drama or just looking at as a data point.
And so here’s the thing… when someone has drama of getting on the scale the only reason that they have drama is because their belief systems around where their weight should be, they believe they’re in the wrong, they believe not where they should be. Well, they’re exactly where they should be because that’s the reality of the situation, right? so the accumulation of all the past decisions and actions have created where they should be. All right, think about it like this… we have MYZONE belts. It’s a strap that goes around your chest, it checks your heartrate, it tells you how many MEPs like how many calories kind you’re burning etcetera, how much energy you’re putting up based on your heart rate. I’ve yet to see a person go “Oh… no! I don’t wanna see my heart rate, I can’t see my heart rate…no! Oh God! No…” which is what we get with the scale right? “No… I don’t wanna weigh in today, I don’t wanna check my weight, I was bad over the weekend… can we weigh in later? I don’t wanna say… blah! blah! blah!…” and on and on and on and drama drama drama stories drama, stories drama. Well why isn’t that true for the heart rate? Well, because the heart rates are reflection of past decisions, etc.. Well the reason is there’s no stories in line around the heart rate. You know in the media there’s images, impressions, thoughts and beliefs that are put upon us by our parents, the media, etcetera like all these things they’re impressed upon us and we have a belief systems about where we should be. And people don’t wanna step on the scale because they don’t wanna see the reality or the truth. They don’t wanna face the truth, they don’t want to accept where they are at.
Acceptance is the first step in the transformation process. Once you get through acceptance, then and only then can you change. All right, so stepping on the scale if there’s an issue there’s a lot much deeper work that needs to be done so we’re transformation experts in getting people to lose weight, also mind-body transformation incorporates the mind aspect which is more powerful right? so if you lose the weight but you still have the problem with the scale, the transformation is not taking place.
If you’re able to step on the scale and accept where you’re at, that’s actually where the transformation is because now you can accept it and now you can move forward. And now you can accept all the actions you’ve done in the past and now you can accept your future to be greater, better and achieve moving forward to your grandest vision. So until that is done then it’s going to be hard to create the future you want so until you accept the past, until you accept where you are in the present it will be extremely hard. I won’t say it’s impossible but it will be extremely hard to get to where you are going because you can’t accept what’s already been there. So you’re not living in the present if you’re not living in the present you are not gonna take actions based on where you want to be in the future. I hope that makes sense, I hope this helps anybody who’s struggling with weight or they have more drama in getting on the scale then they do just looking at a data point.”
