On Sunday, I was blessed to be in the presence of two enthusiatic women. Two separate occasions. two separate reasons but nonetheless, remarkable.
The first was Kristy, our professional caterer friend. Saw her last time in June at daughter's (Heather)wedding. She came to our house to plan the menu for the baby shower! I opened the door and to my amazment and tearful hello was a woman who had dropped nearly half of her self, some 135# in 8 months!
No stomach stapling, no banding, no drugs, no hypnotist, just solid nutrition principles applied to her life. She is writing all this down for I am her first coaching client! So well founded and not crazy obsessed with her new body. This is the freaky thing that happens when women loose a lot of weight, they become obsessed with the new them, to ad nauseum, and do not just flow with it. I have seen the path of changes weight loss can bring. They leave their husbands, they venture off into waters that would have been taboo before, but sometimes that is not all bad! She was in a size M sweater dress, all the 2 X stuff was gone, and most balanced and gracious. She says she has 18# more to go, but she is not stopping, she is just doing the right thing. However, her enthusiasm just bubbled out of her, She was glad she was healthier, she was glad she could do things that were nigh to impossible before. That was joyful to see someone who could not stop smiling at a successful attempt at a difficult task.
I was so encouraged for I had a full bait of CNN and all the world stuff that I wondered where is our "happy self"? I found it; in two unsual meetings...
Your clients are wanting to see that enthusiasm for your progeny or product, even if it is just you!! Actually is that not what we are selling?
Til next time......
