Believe it or not, sustained weight-loss success is straight-forward! It isn't quick and easy, but I promise you that it is possible and that you can do it with the right guidance and by taking action step by step.
To be successful, you have to do some work. This work entails writing some things down and making many small changes to what you are doing currently. You may be familiar with the saying 'If you always do what you've always done, you always get what you've always got'. So if you want things to change, you need to make some changes to what you do now.
If you've read the last couple of articles and followed my advice, you have already taken some steps forward, which is great. You understand broadly what healthy eating is, have your goals written down, have created and written down some positive statements around your goals and have your mind in the right place. Doing all these things will certainly help you succeed.
The changes you need to make also involve learning why nutrition is important for your body to work as well as it should, what foods you should be eating to lose and then maintain your ideal weight and health, then changing what you eat and doing some exercise to help the process along. In the short term it also involves keeping a record of the food you're eating and the exercise you are doing. You won't need to do this forever, but just for a few weeks as a way to learn and help you.
Setting yourself up for success is key to achieving success. Once you know about all these things, you will have all the tools you need to achieve the long-term results you desire: weight loss and optimum health for life.
Be successful by actually taking action. Once you actually make these changes, you will achieve weight loss and optimum health for life.
So, write down your overall goal and break this down into smaller goals to get you there in steps, learn what changes you need to make, put into practice the new things you learn, review your goals regularly (if not daily) and monitor your progress. Once you achieve your initial goals, congratulate yourself, celebrate and set some more goals to take you to the next stage and closer to your ultimate goal. If you need to make changes to your goals along the way as other things change, then that's fine. The important thing is to get started.
Successful people in all walks of life follow this approach. It doesn't just relate to weight loss and health, so adopt this formula for anything you want to achieve in life! Just see what you can achieve - you might be surprised!
