How to Keep Your Weight Loss New Year’s Resolution
After a long holiday season of indulging in delicious foods, you may be ready to recommit to your health and fitness goals at the start of the New Year. Many people use New Year’s resolutions as a way to make goals.
However, by the time Valentine’s Day comes along, most of those same people have thrown their resolutions out the window. So, how can you commit not just for a few weeks, but also for the rest of the year?
Write It Down. People have the best success with goal setting when they write down their goals. Just thinking about a goal isn’t enough – writing it down gives a sense of permanence.
Be Specific. Instead of starting off the New Year with a resolution to finally lose that weight this year, be more specific. Determine how much weight you’d like to lose exactly. Then work backwards from your end goal. How much will you need to lose each month to make your goal?
Make a Plan. It’s one thing to know that you want to lose weight. It’s another thing altogether to have a plan for how you’ll do it. A goal without a plan isn’t going to get you too far. So if weight loss and dieting are part of your resolution, you need to figure out exactly how you’re going to proceed.
For example, what type of diet will you follow? Will you exercise? If so, how often? Gather as many details as possible to help you formulate a plan that will bring you success.
Be Realistic. It’s not uncommon for people to make goals that are simply unrealistic. For example, you probably aren’t going to lose 100 pounds in six months. It’s just not a reasonable aspiration – and it’s not healthy.
Remember that a healthy weight loss will occur at the rate of about 1-2 pounds per week. So you might be able to lose 100 pounds in an entire calendar year if you’re very diligent with your plan.
Don’t Expect Perfection. Understand that you probably won’t stick perfectly to your plan. Instead of using that as an excuse to go crazy, just build in a few free days to help you get through holidays and special occasions.
