Your Waistline Affects Your Bottom Line

You’re Missing Opportunities

I’m going to ruffle some feathers with this blog post but I feel like it’s time to get real and call it like I see it. Because you’re leaving money on the table. Like it or not…Your waistline affects your bottom line. Your income suffers when you are overweight, unhealthy and don’t like how you look. Yep. I just said that. Why? Because your health and wealth (however you define it) are intertwined.

I could point to studies that prove this . Like this one done in the U.K. in 2016. Or this one done by a professor at Wharton. But I don’t need to. I’ve seen firsthand in my work with executives.  When you are overweight, unhealthy and uncomfortable in your own skin you are less confident. And, when you lose confidence, your credibility suffers. And when you aren’t credible or convincing, you lose — money, job opportunities, clients, sales.

To build your empire; to shatter that glass ceiling; to make a big fucking impact in this world, you need to be at the top of your game both mentally AND physically. And that means dropping the weight that’s holding you back. You need to stand tall and feel proud of how you look when you are doing that white-hot, bad ass presentation, sales pitch, interview, etc.

Confidence Sells

Extra weight – even 10 lbs. – drags you down. Literally and figuratively. When you are carrying around extra weight and aren’t confident, it’s what people see FIRST and sometimes it’s ALL they see. It’s often what they base their decisions on. When you don’t like how you look, neither do your clients or customers because they sense your discomfort and lack of confidence.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. You don’t have to carry around extra weight and feel the way you do. You can change it. You can lose weight, feel better and gain your confidence back. IF…yes, there’s an IF. If you stop making bullshit excuses and start taking action. Yep. Another #truthbomb.

The only thing stopping you from losing weight or getting healthy is YOU! Not your job. Not your boss. Not your demanding clients. Not your kids or spouse. Not an injury. Not your busy schedule. Those are excuses. Every one of us has the same 24 hours in a day. We all have the power to re-prioritize and put ourselves first.

Now…having said all that, I am acutely aware that while we all have the power to change, we don’t all have the knowledge and resources to make it happen. There is a new diet, workout trend or weight loss promise out there every day. There’s a gym on every corner and lots of videos online. Knowing what to eat, how to workout to maximize your results and trying to fit it all in…is overwhelming to say the least.

How to Jumpstart Your Slim-down Strategy.

Look, I’m pretty forthcoming with my thoughts on fat. I take the emotion out of it. It’s something you HAVE. Not something you ARE. It’s disposable too. But, I also recognize that people get overwhelmed with where to begin when it comes to ditching the fat and being the healthy, energetic person they are meant to be. Where do you start? How can you fit it in when you’re busy AF!? Here are 3 tips that any busy professional can do to kick your body into action and start looking and feeling better – in as little as 7 Days.

  1. Drink up! Not booze. Water. At least half your body weight in ounces. I’d guess most of you are dehydrated. When you’re dehydrated you think you’re hungry so you eat more. You have less energy so you don’t workout as much. Water is life. Literally. Stop whining about how boring it is and drink up! Don’t add any crap to it. Lemon, lime, strawberries, etc. are fine but no artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners.
  2. Get you Ass Moving. Stop making excuses. You have 30 minutes a day to sweat. You do. You make time for what you prioritize in your life. My guess is, you haven’t been prioritizing your health. So…stop that. Sit down, look at your calendar and pick 5 times over the next 7 days that you can get on a treadmill, go for a run outside, attend a spin class…whatever. 30 minutes is all I’m asking for.
  3. Eat Less; Eat Better. Ditch the take out and drive thru for one week. Cook at home and that doesn’t mean popping a french bread pizza in the oven. Reduce your overall calories by 250 each day. Track your food. Watch sodium and amp up that fiber (at least 25 grams per day). Bottom line…be aware of what you’re putting in your body. Mindless eating is the enemy.

Successful People Seek Out the Experts

Have you ever seen a successful team without a coach? Or, a successful businesswoman without a team of experts around her? Successful people seek out those who know more than them. And, that’s where I come in. My coaching is laser focused on YOU and your individual health and wellness needs. I have the knowledge and do the work to ensure you have the most efficient and effective program to get you back in shape and feeling great.

So, if you are done with the “reasons” why you can’t get healthy, and you’re ready to raise your hand, take action and get the help and support you need…let’s talk.

Your career, business and financial future depend on you looking and feeling your best. Invest now in your health, lose the weight and feel confident so it doesn’t cost you in the long run.
