I used to believe this about willpower too – that I would become stronger by forcing myself to do things…
What I discovered is that willpower is an exhaustible resource.
Have you ever found that?
When you’ve pushed and pulled and fought your way to a particular weight — and then you relaxed.. .
Did you discover that well of willpower was bone dry?
And it was like you were powerless to stop yourself when temptation reared its ugly head again.
It’s like when you dig a hole in the sand in the shallow tide at the beach.
Sure you can frantically dig a hole with your hands – and VOILA at one point in time – yes you’ve emptied out all the water… But for how long?
It’s the same when you use willpower to achieve your ideal weight… Instead of trying to overpower your excuses with reasoning and logic…
Ask yourself WHY do you have those excuses in the first place?
WHAT are they keeping you safe from?

After suffering a fairly serious breakdown I was unable to cope with life in general. My body felt broke, old and frail – I didn’t just feel middle aged, I felt half dead. I hadn’t realised that my body was self destructing and I was doing it to myself, working long hours, too much alcohol, lots of bad food and absolutely no exercise.
After six months of working with Bianca, I no longer need my blood pressure medication, anti depressants and my cholesterol is in a safe zone. I have lost 2 dress sizes and more than 26 kilos. I now have a life outside of our business and can see a happy, healthy future for our family. I hope the person I became never comes back as I like this girl so much better.
I had heard of Bianca through some magazines – it was an investment but I had tried and failed so many times but in six short months, 20 kilos melted off me and it had a massive and unexpected effect on our styling business. While working with Bianca we secured a national gig, increased our prices to a level we previously thought no one would pay, AND we were booked out weeks in advance.
The majority of this 20 kilo weight loss has only been 5% diet and exercise, the rest has been an emotional journey. Bianca confronted me and called me on my BS and challenged some of my most deeply help beliefs about who I am. And the results are undeniable. I haven’t completely quit drinking, I still get to eat chocolate, I’ve had the best year in my business EVER – and perhaps the most important thing is how differently I react to things emotionally.
Who knew that taking it slowly and being kind to yourself could get you the results that yelling at yourself couldn’t.
Before working with Bianca I was super stressed and I thought it was too hard and I didn’t have the time to be slim AND successful. But I was surprised at how easy it was to implement Bianca’s system – I haven’t counted calories and I still pig out on foods I love. It’s been no coincidence to me that as a result of the new clarity of mind I’ve actually doubled my business at the same time I’ve made these changes to my body.
