5 Key Ingredients For A Successful Weight Loss Journey(Part 1)
When one wants to lose weight, it can be incredibly frustrating. It’s something that is often talked/complained about. How many times a day do you say or think, “I need to lose some weight?” How many people do you hear say that on a daily basis?
I know I thought about it and talked about it all the time. It was when I decided to do something about it that my transformation happened. I lost 100 pounds in 6 months and have helped a lot of people achieve similar results by putting 5 ingredients to work.
The first ingredient is “Set A Goal”. You have to have a specific, realistic goal. Your goal must have a deadline. Saying “I need to lose 30 pounds” is not a goal. “I am going to lose 30 pounds in 90 days” is a goal. Without a specific goal, we tend to continue wondering around aimlessly, complaining about our current state, but not really doing anything to change it.
Write this goal down. Mark the dates on your calendar. Tell people what your goal is. Even share it on your social media. The more people that know about your goal the better.
Yes. There will be some people that will support and encourage you while others will try their best to convince you that it is not possible. Use all that to motivate you. The encouragement motivates by feeling like certain people genuinely care and are pulling for you. While those that tell you it’s impossible motivate you by making you want to prove them wrong.
Buy yourself an outfit that doesn’t fit, but will look great on you when you are at your desired weight. Put a picture of yourself on your fridge along with a picture of what you desire to look like at your goal weight. These types of things allow you to visualize your goal and make it even more real to you.
The importance of starting with a specific goal, can not be put into words. You have to have a goal in order to ever achieve the weight loss you seek. I strongly encourage you to set your goal today!
