I would like to introduce, Pat Barone and her blog post My Weight Loss Wish List as part of the Journey to Wealth Blog Series. Pat is a Master Certified Coach (MCC) who is one of less than 700 people worldwide who have achieved the MCC credential. Pat has been very influential in my success of losing over 70 pounds. Pat’s support, compassion and empowering style of coaching has made a huge impact in allowing me to create a healthy lifestyle with a mindful slow and steady approach to weight loss. All these elements were vital to me believing that permanent weight loss is possible. By losing the weight and having a stronger body as a result from consistent exercise, I was able to gain the confidence that inspired me to reach my goals and a potential that I never dreamed of. You can achieve long term results in anything that you do!  Learn more about Pat by visiting her website at http://patbarone.com.

 In an effort to clear my office of clutter, I recently began a scrounge-and-purge operation. I don’t consider myself a hoarder in any way.  I’ve learned to let go of old stuff, old fat, and, most importantly, old beliefs. You might say I love releasing things that don’t serve me.

But, it’s amazing what can hide in bookshelves, beneath a stack of reading material, or in office cubbies.

Recently, as I was knee-deep in the recycle bin, I came across a series of old notebooks.  I always keep a notebook with me.  It might serve as a place to journal, make a to-do list, or plan the year 2035.  I long-ago realized I can’t keep all the parts of my life separate, so everything goes in the one notebook I have nearby.

The day before Thanksgiving, I found myself going through a notebook from early in my final weight loss journey.  I have no idea what cued the list I found… but I was actively losing weight and must have realized, or read somewhere, that I should hook into the rewards of the task I was planning.

So, here’s my list – the reasons why I wanted to lose weight permanently:

1.  I’ll feel connected to my body, no static in between it and me.

2.  I’ll be the essence of me, no excess anywhere.

3.  I’ll look better in clothes and find it easy to shop.

4.  It will show I walk my talk.  I say I want to be a healthy weight and embody health, and that will be apparent.

5.  Food will cease to be a focal point in my life.

6.  I’ll show love without food.

7.  I’ll love myself and others more deeply and purely.  My expression of this love will be clean and simple and authentic.

8.  I’ll honor my body.

9.  I’ll be as I was meant to be.  I won’t carry my inadequacies and disappointments on my hips.

And here’s what’s important about this ten-year-old list:

Today, it’s all true.  Every word of it. 

It’s the season of thanksgiving, and I’m very grateful for all the wonder in my life.  I’m even more inspired to look back and see what I have created.  I always had doubt, but my intention from those words somehow carried me through the doubt, the hard times, the heartbreak and meandering roads that make up life.

What do you want to create?  In ten years, what will be on the list you find?  The list you write today?

Bio:

Pat Barone has defied all the odds life stacked against her and lived to tell her tale. The child of addicts, she often felt addiction was the only possible way to live. Much of her life was spent watching family drama playing out through the rear window of a car on a dusty Texas road. Apparently, she mistook this vista as a movie screen and a sign to pursue filmmaking, because her fixation took her to New York City, where she got her master’s degree in filmmaking from New York University.  Healing her own addiction taught her to live life backwards, dropping off baggage and bad attitudes along the way. When not writing and coaching clients to brilliant lives, she teaches and practices yoga.  Pat met her spiritual guide at age 25, and has been healing herself and the world ever since.
