It seems like everybody these days wants to lose weight. And for every individual wanting to trim fat, it would seem as though there is a different magic fat burning capsule, slimming cream, fad diet or miracle cleanse for each of them to try. Magazine covers at the supermarket checkout that read "lose ten pounds in a week" are giving people the impression that losing weight is easily done. In fact, there is nothing easy about losing weight at all. It's not something that happens overnight. It is likely that you have tried to lose weight before; exercise programs that didn't last, diets and cleanses that were too strict to follow. Millions of people every year waste money on different pills, powders, patches, procedures and programs that offer nothing more than false hope. The weight loss industry is a multi-billion dollar industry, which for the most part, uses marketing to sell products, not weight loss. Unfortunately, weight loss isn't for sale, if it was, we'd all be thin. If you really want to lose weight you are going to need many things, none of which you can buy in a store or order online. The things that you need to succeed can only come from within you and are more valuable than anything with a price tag.
Everything you need to lose weight is within you right now"
Right now is the time to stop looking for an outside solution, let go of un-realistic ideals and get real!!! If losing weight is something that you really want, then you will find want you need, it is in you. It is your hard work, your motivation, your dedication and your perseverance. The things that you need to lose weight are priceless; but are worth so much. Yes, it's going to be tough. Yes, you will have to sweat.

And not just for a week, or a month, but through the whole course, until you reach your goal.

You will learn things about yourself and do things that you never thought you could do. In the end you will look back and see that all of your hard work and perseverance paid off.
