You're definitely not alone. Next to hand sanitizer and toilet paper, large quantities of alcohol seem to be on a lot of COVID-19 self-quarantine shopping lists.
And after stocking up on food, does it seem like with "sheltering in place" there's nothing to do BUT eat? Find yourself craving comfort food?
At the same time, you know that this could be a great opportunity to create some new healthy habits and lose some weight, as long as you can keep sane through this coronavirus pandemic.
I'm here to help and support you.
"Hi, I'm Amy Lang, founder and chief motivating officer of Moxie Club.
As the former owner of Pacific Heights Health Club from 2004-2019, my team and I worked with thousands of clients to achieve their weight loss and fitness goals.
After 15+ years of working with so many folks, I know a thing or two about what works and what doesn’t work when it comes to motivation and creating healthy habits.
In fact, as you can see our clients are pretty darn happy with their fitness and weight loss results.
For 55 years, I hated exercise. Then I found Amy at Pacific Heights Health Club, and between the small group training sessions and fitness classes, I love the feeling of moving my body and have been a regular for the past 2-1/2 years and counting.
With exercise and eating healthier, I feel stronger and have much more energy. Currently I’m walking about 8 miles everyday while on vacation. I wouldn’t have that kind of energy if I wasn’t fit.
"Looking back, I was at a point where I was ALMOST going to give up. I had tried so many different things when I finally decided to give this program a try. I'm so glad I did. I've developed a sense of self-care which has impacted ALL parts of my life in amazing ways. My marriage… career… everything."
Especially in these uncertain times...
Well, first, let me tell you why most habit-forming efforts are abandoned after just 2-3 weeks.
By focusing our thoughts and energies on what we don't want to do, most would-be "fit and healthy" people - we wind up putting ourselves in a mental state of scarcity.
We fall victim to constant thoughts about the "bad carbs" and comfort foods that we've been told we should avoid, self-doubt in the form of questions about whether we'll be able to stick to the plan, and so we succumb to quick fixes in order to see a change in the number on the scale.
Ah yes, those old well-established habits crop up and overwhelm those fledgling new habits.
If I ask you "What weight loss or exercise programs have you tried?"
Are you going to answer with...
"Hmm... what haven't I tried?"
Yep, and every time you try, you wind up feeling worse for yet another failed attempt - right? And your brain stores it as evidence that you're not able to stick to the plan and the results you want so badly continue to elude you.
Luckily, the human body is incredibly adaptive and responds quickly to changes in nutrition, activity levels, rest and recovery.
And right now, we know that healthy lifestyle habits are key to a strong immune system.
So we're going to accomplish those changes by creating states of abundance – like gratitude.
As Viktor Frankl said, "The last of the human freedoms is to choose one’s own attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”
Even if you’ve been doing the yo-yo dieting thing for years, you can stop the struggle and create that happy, active and healthy life you want.
That is if you can recognize and avoid the programs and approaches that have the same underlying flaw in their design as the ones you've tried before - those that don't include a strategy and plan to keep new habits going. In other words...
Now is the BEST TIME to start creating healthier habits.
As Dr. Maya Angelou said, "Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better."
And now... with your permission, I'd love to show you how you can finally create those healthy habits and lose weight without the struggle.

A habit loop has three elements:
1. Cue (or trigger)
3. Reward (a feeling)
By the way, in case you're wondering... a craving is a habit loop that has been short-circuited. It's a loop where the reward is anticipated immediately after the cue instead of experienced as an outcome of the routine.
CHARLES DUHIGG, The Power of Habit
From your own personal experience, I'm sure you recognize the three stages of habit forming. Worth The Wait takes into account what can happen during each of these stages and then provides the strategies and tools you'll need to successfully navigate all three stages.
Stage 1 – Excited (14-21 days)
Stage 2 – Intentional (22-60 days)
Stage 3 – Automatic (61-90 days)
As you can see below, each phase in Worth The Wait matches up with the corresponding habit forming stage.

Creating this business and applying what I've learned has literally transformed my own life.
I've experienced first hand what it feels like to struggle with weight loss and feeling like no matter what I did, I couldn't get to where I wanted to be. And then how easily what I wanted came to me after a shift in mindset.
