Willpower - What is it and how do you build it up?
Willpower doesn't come easy.. you have to build it up! It's like a muscle that needs to be pushed! Every single time you go make a good choice or refuse to eat something that you shouldn't that muscle gets stronger.
For example, when I was more than 100 pounds overweight I felt like I had no willpower.. Every time I went to an outing or a Dinner or closed the refrigerator and said "no I'm not eating that!!" my willpower grew. It TRULY works that way.
I hear a lot of people say "I have no willpower." The thing is, you do!! You just have to work on it! Every single time you make a good choice you will get stronger and have the ability to lose weight successfully. Is it easy?? NO! but once you do it over and over it DOES become easy I promise!! When it's late at night and that ice cream sundae is calling you and your stomach is growling and you have that "overwhelming" feeling of "oh my God I have to eat" close that freezer and think of your body eating away at those pounds. Every time I've had that overwhelming feeling to eat and I refused I wake up in the morning feeling STRONGER and thinner! That is the best feeling!! Start building up your willpower! You can do it!!!
