Trick #4 in Keeping the Weight Off for Good!!
Ok, we’re up to the 4th trick in making weight loss stick. This trick blends in with all the others.
And it is… (drumroll please…) Pace YourSelf!
So when creating your new healthy habits, you need to pace yourself. Make space for mistakes and for life to happen. Just take it easy. My suggestion is to add one new healthy habit per month for an entire year. You can plan in advance what your 12 habits are going to be- write them in on your wall calender and GO!
Here’s how to start: tonight write down what 12 healthy habits you will add to your life in the next year. I find that usually people have a pretty good idea of what they need to add, they just don’t commit to doing it.
Writing the habits down in your calender is a commitment. Write your start date for each habit and keep track of them in a fitness journal or wherever works for you.
If you need some ideas of healthy habits to add, here are a few: drink 8 eight ounce glasses of water every day, add more fiber to your diet, exercise a minimum of 3x per week, add more green veggies to your diet, keep your portion sizes reasonable (palm sized), snack on nuts and carrots instead of power bars and chips, etc…
If you need a little more guidance and support, I offer several programs that vary from group support, to individualized one on one coaching.
