The most popular New Year’s resolution is to lose weight. If you’re one of the people who made this a goal for 2020, here’s what you need to know.
- Weight loss is a journey – you have to stay committed for the long run.
- Expect twists and turns in the road – some days will be good and others bad. You may lose weight one week and not lose the next.
- While there may be twists and turns on the road, you WILL get there. You just have to keep going.
- Create your own “map” – a plan to reach your goals – and you won’t get lost along the way.
Some things to do and think about:
BEFORE YOU START
Make a list of all the reasons WHY you want to lose weight.
Weight loss is a choice. You will only lose weight if you WANT to and not because others make you feel you HAVE to.
EXERCISE IS YOUR FRIEND
Exercise makes you feel great and helps you lose weight faster. Choose to exercise in a way YOU LIKE TO. This could be walking, running, dancing or swimming. You don’t need a gym to exercise.
DON’T GIVE UP
If it’s with your eating plan or with exercise, if you feel like giving up, remember WHY you want to reach your goals and that YOU deserve all the great results! Doing the last few minutes of exercise or avoiding a bad meal is the ticket to you achieving those goals!
CHOOSE AN EATING PLAN THAT WORKS IN THE LONG TERM
There is no such thing as a “quick diet”. They might help you
lose quickly for a few weeks but you won’t keep the weight off.
So, choose an eating plan that is balanced and healthy. Speak
to a dietician if you need help with this.
