Simple bits of proven truth to help keep you moving, through the ups, the downs and the inevitable plateaus that come with any weight loss effort. Let’s get started!
Be curious about your future. Psychologists know that envisioning outcomes can be very powerful tools to helping you reach goals. So envision the self you see as you reach your weight loss goals. If you can see it, you can be it.
Even the simplest change to your routine can pummel a plateau. Every person who has ever undertaken a weight loss journey has eventually reached a plateau, a point at which nothing seems to be happening. You’ve had steady movement toward your goal, then…nothing. Here’s a way to bust through: If you follow the same routine every day, your body may adapt to it. So alter your eating routine by switching when you eat your SmartCarbs, for example. Or take a day and switch lunch and dinner. Drink a little more water. And most important: don’t get discouraged, and don’t give up.
See your refrigerator for what it is: a bounty of healthy food and drink. Fruit. Veggies. Lean meats. Bottled water. Make sure that’s what you keep stocked in it. Did you fall off the path and maybe bring home a hunk of birthday cake from that office party? It doesn’t need to stay there. Replace it with some oranges, grapes and sliced turkey breast.
