How to Improve your Mindset for Maximum Weight Loss

Carmel Valley San Diego Community | Amy Mewborn | When you think aboutWe know that many women set the goal to lose weight more than once a year.  However, we make the decision, go hung ho for a few weeks, lose a couple of pounds, then quit.

So often, it is due to our internal motivation (or lack thereof).  If you are struggling with keeping your promises to yourself and reaching or maintaining your weight loss goals, you must ask yourself…

WHY did you decide you wanted to lose weight?

Did you want to get healthier?  Do you want a stronger heart?  Do you want to look better in your jeans? And did you find something that motivated and inspired you?  Or was your workout just this boring, horrible thing that you had to get through.

When you are struggling to meet your goals, you need to continually remind yourself of WHY you were doing it in the first place.  And rather than looking at the whole goal, break it down into smaller, more manageable, smaller goals.

Rather than focusing on the long term weight loss goal – keep a DAILY journal of how you FEEL after your workout.

Do you feel stronger?  Is your mood better?  Often after a great workout, I actually feel thinner!
I know it’s impossible that after one workout that I am ACTUALLY thinner – but I feel better about myself and my body – and once that starts, I make better food choices that day!

If you really want to make a lifestyle change – remind yourself why you are doing it and get up and make ONE good decision!  That one decision could be the change you needed to make your entire day more successful.

Carmel Valley San Diego Community | Amy MewbornOriginally from the Midwest, Amy moved to San Diego in 2001. A graduate of Valparaiso University, Amy had been a Financial Advisor since 1997. When Amy began taking Pilates with her neighbor Wendy, in 2006, she fell in love with the method and benefits of the program and knew she wanted to help others achieve their fitness goals. It was not until Amy took her first barre class that she discovered her true passion for fitness. She loved the challenge and energy of each class. And more importantly, she was excited by the results as her body became more toned than through any other workout routine she had tried in the past. Amy would be one of the best testimonials for Fit in 60 Pilates and Barre. In less than a month’s time, attending 4-5 classes a week, Amy went from a size 10/12 to a size 6. She came home one day and told her husband, Mike that “if every girl knew this, every girl would do it.” Amy is passionate about getting to know her clients and provide modifications and corrections to challenge every client, while making classes as safe as possible. Amy lives in Carlsbad with her husband, Mike, and her dog Emma. She loves what she does, and is thrilled to present the Fit in 60 workout to Carlsbad and Carmel Valley and is eager to help women look and feel great!
