What is the Best Approach to Weight Loss?
What is the best approach to weight loss? Before you even start the process of changing your whole diet and way of your normal routine, usually making the decision to lose weight comes first. No matter what your reason is to make this big change, it is YOUR decision. Whether you want to lose weight or gain weight it’s personal to you. It’s another step in the journey of your life to improve yourself for you.
Set Your Goal & Follow Through
There is more to just saying to yourself you will do something. You have to commit, really commit. Write down your goal and make it specific to you. Don’t be vague. Only you can know what’s best for you. The way to make it “real” and not let another idea slip away is to make yourself see it. Try setting a reminder or write a note to stick somewhere you can see first thing every single day.
After setting your goal it’d be wise to set a length of time for it to last. When it comes to staying healthy and meeting your goal, consistency is key. On the other hand, giving yourself one day in the week to take a break and rest is good for you as well.
Another thing to keep in mind is to not set the bar too high. Challenging yourself is good, don’t get me wrong. However, pushing yourself TOO much in the beginning can cause you to lose hope in what you’re working for. Gradually ease into the this new lifestyle as you go. As they say, if you tell someone they can’t have something, usually you end up wanting it even more. So take things step by step and remember to never give up! You can do anything you set your mind to. Ignore the “if’s” and “but’s” because at the end of the day, you’re going to feel so good about yourself.
