As you know, I’ve been trying out the D28 For Life 28-day transformation program. When I first started, I was so gung-ho about my weight loss– I was going to follow the workout and motivation calendar, the meal plan to a T, and make every recipe.
Needless to say, I “failed” pretty quickly – in reality, it wasn’t a failure, but lack of a good strategy.
If I hadn’t been so concerned about having all the ingredients to make each recipe perfectly on the exact day it was suggested, I would have realized that the part of this plan that I need the most are the motivation and strategies for success.
I noticed that the success stories being shared note that the individual may be on their third round of the D28 For Life program, and I realized that the “For Life” aspect means I have a lot to learn and I can’t expect to be perfect all at once.
The phrase that really nailed this home for me was when a Robert Brace said, “Willpower is Weak, Strategy is Strong.”
