The word thin can be replaced with many

words; fit, successful, happy – anything!


I’m using the word thin here but just slot

your word in and I’ve chosen thin as most

people want weight loss in January…


However, it shouldn’t just be January

cause that sounds an awful lot like

‘a puppy is not just for christmas’


Anyway, if you want to be a thin person

you have to think like a thin person


You know I don’t do calorie counting

but let’s just pretend for a minute we are


say you should be eating 2,600 calories

a day for your existing body weight but

for your ideal body weight you should be

eating 2,000 calories


then you would eat 2,000


and if you want to be the kind of person

who exercises every day, then you should

be exercising every day


It is mindset but the first step to becoming

the person you want to be is to start

thinking like they would


Does a thin person think differently to the

way you think now?




Does the thin person have a second


Does the thin person prepare food in


Does the thin person skip a workout?


I could give you loads more examples

but I think you get what I’m saying


then make your decisions based on what

the thin person would do, what they

would eat, what their life would be like?


Once you start to think and live like a

thin person you will adapt the new habits

and behaviours, they will become part of

your daily routine and you will become

that thin person


Sounds so easy and straightforward?


It’s simple but not always easy, give it a

try and let me know how you get on



p.s. I’ll be going into mindset in more

detail in future emails this month
