How to Be a Weight Loss Success
Do you ever feel inspired by other people’s weight loss success and wish you could replicate that success for yourself? You can! And the good news is that you can do it even before you have reached your goal weight. Below are three simple steps to get you started. Step One: Redefine success.
You may be thinking that reaching your goal weight and maintaining it for 2 or 3 years is the definition of weight loss success, but it doesn’t have to be. One of the definitions of success is following through with something you intend to do. If you intend to eat healthier and you actually do it, you are a success! If you intend to work out for 30 minutes a day and you actually do it, you are a success!
Of course, there are varying degrees of success, but YOU get to be the judge of what makes you successful or unsuccessful. Here’s a little important clue: If you FEEL successful (which includes being proud of yourself and satisfied with your efforts), you ARE successful.
Step Two: Write your success story now.
Grab a sheet of paper and start writing your success story right NOW. Imagine that it’s going to be broadcast on national television or radio, and put your heart and soul into it. Tell your story as you want it to be. Start with the time when weight first became an issue for you, and then detail everything you did (and are still doing) to lose the weight. Be sure to focus on the emotional aspects, like how good you felt when you started to make progress, and how great you feel now that you have finally reached your goal weight! Yes, that last part will be fictional, but not for long.
Be sure to re-read your story every day if you can. It’s one of the best ways to stay motivated.
Step Three: Have unwavering faith.
No matter the obstacles you may face along the way, have unwavering faith that you WILL succeed. Keep some inspiring quotes nearby to remind you that it doesn’t matter how many times you fall as long as you keep getting back up and moving forward. You can’t not reach the finish line if you don’t give up.Must Read
