The Next Best Step for Lasting Weight Loss
Lasting Weight Loss without diet and exercise? Yes, please!
Come the end of January, most of us would have given up on our weight loss and fitness resolutions. Does that mean we are just a bunch of slackers without any willpower? That we never will be successful?
Actually not. The whole process of how we make New Years Resolutions is flawed. You thought it is as easy as just thinking you want to do it and then start doing it. But there are more to it. Successful people know that there is a process involved.
HERE ARE THE TOP 5 REASONS YOU GIVE UP ON YOUR WEIGHT LOSS GOALS:
You are using WILLPOWER to start a new habit.
The problem? Willpower is like your cellphone battery. It always runs out. And then you are stuck and discouraged. And the diet “stops” working. Off to another one!
Your new goal is not SUSTAINABLE.
If you can not do it for the rest of your life, you will probably stop doing it. Initially it seems doable to overexercise, spending hours in the kitchen prepping food, counting calories or taking supplements. But hen you run out of steam. You have not built this new habits in a way that you want to keep on doing it.
You have not addressed the REASON why you are overeating.
Overeating is just the symptom of something else. To use an analogy, if you are fainting, we need to find the reason why you are fainting. If you are not figuring out the underlying reason, you will keep on overeating.
Your goals are not DOABLE.
If you are not introducing steps that feels easy to you, you will not be able to keep on doing it. Let me give you an example: Planning for a salad with a chicken breast is easy to do, and you can even do that on a crazy day. However, if you have a 12 step meal that is taking you 2 hours, even if it is as healthy as your salad with a chicken breast, I bet you are not going to keep on doing it.
Your goals are too lofty, and nonspecific .
Losing 50 pounds is too nonspecific, and a great long term goal. However, cutting out desert during the week is an easy, clear and doable plan.
For sustainable change, you need EASY and DOABLE actions to increase confidence in yourself and ensure SUSTAINABILITY.
