Welcome back luxers to part II of this series of How to set your goals for a weight loss plan 2021. As discussed last week, we've compiled a couple of goals you should definitely consider when you are developing and building up your weight loss plan. If that's not enough, we've got your back. This week we'll be giving you not 1, not 2, but 5 additional tips and tricks that will be crucial in making your weight loss plan a success. Let's dive right into it.
1. Journalling your food and physical activity
To illustrate your biggest challenges when it comes to healthy eating, journal for a week. Maybe you drink a few too many beers during the week, skip breakfast, or overeat late at night because you don't have healthy meals or snacks at work. Take three of these challenges and set specific goals around each of them. For example, if you're currently having at least 15 alcohol-based drinks per week, you could make a goal to set a drink limit of 7-10 drinks per week. This way, you're not overwhelming yourself with too many "to-do's." When these new goals become habitual, focus on three new goals until you eventually create permanent lifestyle changes.
2. Build bit by bit
Short-term weight loss plans should not be a pie in the sky. This means that when you have never exercised at all, your best weight loss plan for this week should be based on finding three different one-mile routes that you can walk next week.
3. Keeping up the self-encouragement
An all-or-nothing attitude only sets you up to fail. Learn to evaluate your efforts fairly and objectively. If you fall short of some goals, look ahead to next week. You do not need to have a perfect record.
After all, self-encouragement should definitely be a part of your weight loss plans. Otherwise, you will fail in the end.
4. Avoid surroundings where you know you're tempted to make poor food choices
Everyone has a time when we're most likely to overeat, whether it's the morning coffee break or after-work gathering with friends. Try to plan other activities or distractions for those times, or schedule in advance how you're going to handle them and stick to it.
5. Use measurable measures
Saying that you are going to be more positive this week or that you are going to really get serious this week is not a goal that you can measure and should not be a part of your weight loss plan.
This is another reason why you should incorporate exercise into your weight loss plan and focus on it. You should be able to count up the minutes of training in order to be successful in your plan.
The bottom line is, people should make weight loss plans that will only remain as it is, just a plan. They have to put it into action by incorporating goals that will motivate them to succeed. Remember: Motion feels like progress, ACTION IS PROGRESS.
