You know eating a healthier diet is vital to losing weight. You know that it means you’ll have to make some real changes, and you’re ready.
So maybe you start your online research and comb through the thousands of websites covering that topic. You see all sorts of things that you hope might work: the Keto Diet, the Mediterranean Diet, a Low-Calorie Diet, you name it.
That’s all well and good, and you may very likely find some success with any number of the diets out there. But here’s the thing: Losing weight isn’t about trying the latest and greatest thing. It’s finding what works for you and setting yourself up for success by ensuring your weight loss journey won’t be a wash. Here are five ways to do just that!
Losing weight takes time, patience, persistence, and consistency. There’s no point in starting if you aren’t certain you’re ready to do it, mean it and stick by it. Search your heart and mind before you start your journey to ensure you’re going to keep going no matter how challenging it gets.
Setting small, measurable goals and milestones that you can mark off along the way is critical to getting to the end. For example, if you want to lose 50 pounds, set a small goal of losing 10 pounds within two months first. When you reach that small goal, celebrate! Then, set the next one. Remember, each little success brings you one step closer to the championship. Keep your eyes on the prize.
Your friends, family and loved ones can (and should!) be your greatest allies. Tell them all about your plan from the start. Then, share your successes with them every step of the way. Having a support system to celebrate along with you is an excellent way to build positive reinforcement and keep you going strong!
Totally restricting yourself from eating anything you enjoy is a recipe for failure. For example, if you absolutely love bread, perhaps the Keto Diet isn’t for you. If you’re a big fan of meat, a diet that’s mostly focused on vegetarianism probably isn’t going to go so well. Instead, choose a diet that incorporates smaller amounts or healthier versions of what you enjoy most.
