Do it for you, not for a partner, event or season…
3 years ago, Mordechai was in the jungle in Costa Rica at a retreat with 40 entrepreneurs: workshops, healthy food, lots of nature.
It was over 100 degrees with no air conditioning, and all the guys took off their shirts by the pool — that’s NOT something he ever did.
You see, Mordechai was a successful entrepreneur, but still felt ashamed and disappointed because he was 130 pounds overweight. So, taking off his shirt at the pool? Never.
The reason for the retreat was to determine one’s life purpose. So, Mordechai opened up to a retreat facilitator about his hesitation to remove his shirt. She encouraged him to take his shirt off when no one was at the pool to see how I felt. It wasn’t terrible.
She suggested he do the same during his presentation in front of the rest of the attendees.
“&#$ NO!” he said.
He ended his speech by saying, “My entire life growing up, I wanted to make money and lose weight, and now that I’ve had some success in both areas, I still don’t feel the way I thought I would feel.”
He continued, “What I’ve realized: I don’t love and accept myself.”
Then, he took off his shirt. To an incredible and lengthy standing ovation.
Now, losing weight isn’t as easy as taking your shirt off in front of a crowd — in fact, to lose weight and keep it off, you MUST have the right motivation; do it for you, not for a partner, event or season.
Permanent weight loss comes from doing your “inner” work, addressing the wounds, trauma and emotional triggers that keep you eating in ways that make you fat.
At that retreat, Mordechai had finally reclaimed his body.
At The Reclaim Your Body Summit, you’ll learn from others who’ve been overweight and learned how to transform their lives. They’ll bring practical wisdom and powerful tactics for healing, losing weight, keeping it off and feeling good in your body.
