Obesity is emerging as the largest opponent of healthiness, and the vow to fight against fatness is emerging as one of the major components of New Year’s Resolutions. On Christmas Eve and the following holidays, we eat so much that we begin to feel sick. We lay on our backs and decide to come with a New Year’s Resolution that we will strictly control our dietary habits.
These resolutions never really work, because we take them merely as a joke, that if our last year sucked, this one is pretty much going to suck too.
The best way to implement your weight loss new year’s resolution is to be firm in what you decide. Set a realistic goal. Saying, “I want to lose 50 pounds in the next couple of months” is just plain demotivating in itself. As soon as you write it down, you have to fight the urge to slump over until your forehead meets resistance. Keeping your goal realistic makes it attainable.
Along the year, there will be many events where you will have the strong desire to party and eat. As these days go by, many people slaughter their doggedness, as if it had been just a one-week-resolution. Therefore, it is quite helpful to write down your plans, rather than just forgetting about your initial plan every week and coming up with a new one for the next two weeks.
Do not stick solitarily to the concept of eating less. This will lead to anorexia more than it will lead to a healthy body. Instead, think of what to eat and what not to eat. Take meals al prescribed times, and avoid munching every now and then. Think of giving your body ample degree of exercise, and perhaps visit a gym to work out and burn the unnecessary fats your body has to carry along.
On an average, losing 1-2 pounds per week is a healthy rate to lose weight. Anything faster than that may lead to complications rather than positive outcomes. Try to create an environment that will excite you. Have someone that you trust know about your weight loss goal and ask them for inspiration. Tape a motivating picture on your wall. Do not compare yourself to others – you are unique. Drink plentiful amounts of water, and learn new exercises.
Many people feel let down when they become slimmer and then find that being slim doesn’t solve all their problems in one go. They then revert to eating poorly again. Don’t fall into this trap. You have lots of different needs which need to be fulfilled in life. Being slimmer, healthier, and fitter is just one of them. Just remember to love your body, because if you don’t love it, no one else will either.
These tips will surely help you in sticking to your weight loss new year’s resolution.
