1. Make smaller goals instead of trying to race to the main goal
a. Instead of focusing on losing 30 pound in 3 months, why not focus on losing 1-2 pounds in one week.
2. Be Patient!
a. For the majority of us, it took a looooong time to get to our heaviest weight. So that means it will take more than a few days to lose it, you catch my drift!
3. Have a game plan before going out to eat
a. Try to go online and check out the menu before arriving to the restaurant. Being prepared and staying in the proper mind state is key.
4. Prepare your meals for success
a. Cook and prepare all your meal at the beginning of the week or the night before. If all of your meals are cooked and always ready to eat you are less likely to fall off the wagon.
5. TAKE YOUR TIME!
a. Dieting slowly is extremely important! Gradually dropping your calories will help prevent early plateaus and your body will adjust smoothly to its new calorie restrictions.
Now! Let’s stop losing 3 pounds and gaining back 5 every other week. Stay Motivated, eat healthy and workout like your life depends on it!
