I have 2 girlfriends who are my real thinspiration. Both were overweight at some stage of their lives and at a specific point, decided one day – “This is it, not one kg more!!!!”
My first friend had an event she was going to in the future and decided there was no ways she was going to be anything but her best. Good for her. Giving herself 6 months for the programme, she chose a nutritious, fresh, low GI menu and stuck to it. Yes she had a slice of cake at bridge, but no she did not have a slice of cake, 2 brownies and some delicious quiche like the rest of us. She was just disciplined and consistent, if she had a “Break all the rules” meal, she just climbed back on the band wagon and from her next meal stuck to it again. She did not agonise or fuss – she just simply did it. Well you should have seen the gorgeous dress she wore to her special event and heard all the compliments. She looks fantastic and healthy and 10 years younger. A year later, as it is now, she has not gained one gram. She still is quite observant of the choices she makes regarding what delicious morsel to hang off the end of her fork. Sugar is out and fruit is IN. Quantity is out, BUT quality is IN. Seeing her steady, disciplined, one day at a time, one step at a time approach, makes Jane my primary godess of thinspiration. So thanks and hoping you too find that shining example of something you would like to achieve in your health – and your life!
