Day 30: Spread Your Weight-Loss Awesomeness Across Your Life | 30-Day Weight Loss-athon

Day 30: Spread Your Weight-Loss Awesomeness Across Your Life | 30-Day Weight Loss-athon

It’s time for the final day of the 30-Day Weight Loss-athon. What a journey it’s been!

All tasks in the 30-Day Weight Loss-athon are adapted from my 52 Weight Loss Missions program.

Read the steps first, then take 10 minutes to think about and complete them. Ready?

What You Need:

  • A good look at what you’ve achieved over the past month.

Step 1

As you lose weight, you’ll enjoy a greater sense of self-mastery.

You’ll think, Hey I did that!

Then you’ll start to think, I wonder what else can I do..?

You’ll see yourself as capable of impressive things, and it’s natural that you’ll want to apply this new-found confidence to other areas of life.

This is fantastic, because it creates an upward spiral in your life – every success gives you greater confidence and motivation to cross-fertilize everything else.

And that means you can end up with further weight-loss success too.

Now that you know what you’re capable of, let’s raise the standard elsewhere in your life, too.

So as our first step, let’s decide to spread the confidence around.

Step 2

So… where else can you expect more of yourself?

For example, you may feel drawn to one or more of these:

  • No longer reading magazines that put people down
  • Dressing better every day
  • Making more effort with your grooming or appearance
  • Focusing on your posture – standing, sitting and walking tall
  • Speaking up in meetings
  • Asking for what you want – graciously but clearly
  • Giving up junk entertainment – TV shows, books and movies that don’t enrich your life
  • Giving up gossip
  • Being more positive
  • Showing more kindness
  • Learning public speaking
  • Reading inspiring books and biographies
  • Learning a new skill
  • Seeking a promotion at work
  • Decluttering your home
  • Organizing your home
  • Organizing your life and goals
  • Designing a new life
  • Organizing your business.

Make a list of ways in which you’d like to raise your standards across your life. Only add things to your list if they inspire you.

Step 3

Now, ask yourself what you have to do in order to hold yourself accountable and put these changes into practice. What actions do you need to complete?

Bonus Step For 52 Weight Loss Missions Members

Review the examples of actions for each suggestion in Step 2 from Mission 52: Raise Your Standards.

Step 4

Whatever areas you’ve chosen for higher standards in your life, make sure you’ve identified the actions you’ll complete in order to put them into practice.

Then, either start them now, or assign them to a specific date in your diary. And do them.

Because, remember: in all areas of your life, including weight loss, it’s not what you know – it’s what you do!

In this program you’ve applied that principle and taken action in 30 important ways. Congratulations! You are amazing.

Now, let taking action be your mantra in the rest of your life.

What are you waiting for? Go be amazing in whole new ways. :-)

And you’re done!

    I have really enjoyed the past month, very eye opening. Now to strive at maintaing this information I have learned, and setting higher standards for myself, is my ultimate goal. Thank you!

  2. Beth Hites says:

    Decluttering and reading more. The 1st is on schedule for Memorial Day weekend, and reading is something I hope to add in a little at a time as it’s not really something I love. Thanks for all the tips you’ve shared this month. It’s been good for me.

  3. Cheryl Simpson says:

    I have enjoyed the accountability and words of wisdom you gave this month. There is still a lot to chew on. I plan on continuing to tweak my healthy body goals.
    I am encouraged to step out and do more than holding back or putting off.

  4. Jane Kisler Mooney says:

    I will be focusing on the missions that weren’t easy for me–mastering them one at a time. Then, my focus will be decluttering my home, with a similar”one area at a time” approach. This month has been so helpful and inspiring!

  5. Andrea Kelly Donaruma says:

    That was a fast 30 days! I have loved doing this each day. The accountability was a real motivator. Starting tomorrow I am going to do the 30 days again and keep myself on track. I am going to add the 30 day declutter also! Bring it on May!

  6. Jean Hino says:

    Like you said, it’s not what I know but what I do. I definitely want to work on the de-cluttering of my house. Unfortunately this won’t happen until June and I have a break from my work and class I’m taking. But It will be on my calendar in June. Thank you for all the positive ideas on how to recharge my life by controlling my diet and exercise.

  7. Janet Lovvorn Miller says:

    This has been a great month and I can already tell a difference in my attitude and the way I carry myself. And I have decided that my house needs to lose as much weight as I do….have already started packing things up to take to the Salvation Army. I am working on one room at a time and since we have been focused on dieting the first room has been my kitchen/dining room area. Good luck to everyone!
