Do you Have a Plan?

A majority of New Year’s resolutions made each year have to do with living healthier and weight loss. But how do you get from the hope to do so and achieving some results?

Here are some steps to help you get from “I hope I’m thinner by June” to losing some inches from your waist and some pounds from the scale.
  • Make a plan. To begin to be healthier, you need to be able to focus on your weight loss goals. Addressing other stressors in your life that might take away your focus (financial concerns, relationship issues) can help you stay on point.

  • Write down all of the reasons it’s important to you to lose weight or live healthier – it will help you stay focused in moments you waiver.

  • Find resources for information and support – check out local gyms, consider a personal trainer, or talk to your doctor about how to make and eat healthier meals.

  • Ensure you’ll have the right kind of support every step of the way. Find friends who will work out with you or who have a passion for healthy living and eating, rather than those who will use shame or embarrassment to try to encourage you.

  • Define realistic goals. A healthy amount to lose each week is one to two pounds. Make sure your goals are measurable (30 minutes of walking every day; three servings of vegetables each day).

  • Get active, and make it a habit. To lose one pound of fat, you need to burn 3,500 calories. Cutting 500 calories each day, either through cutting down on unhealthy fat or sugar, or exercising, will help you reach your goal.

  • Most of all, you’ll need to change your perspective for the long-term to keep up on your weight and healthy living habits. Do you eat when stressed? Do you tend to get fast food for lunch or dinner regularly? Find out why you have bad habits such as these, and work to change your outlook. Remember one step at a time, one pound at a time.

If you start with a realistic plan and focus on it every day, you’ll begin to see a change in your life slowly but surely.
