Back On Track - Plans Before New Years
That's okay, we can get back on track on our weight loss together!
It's one of those things that we often contemplate right before New Years.
With all of the New Years resolutions there is ONE thing that we want to get straight, OUR PLAN.
We are always thinking about what plan we want to have, as well as a course of action.
There are a lot of people that think about making their resolution to lose more weight.
So, how do we make a plan and course of action that we are going to keep?
It is ridiculously easy!
We will go through some steps to help you take action!
1. Pen and Paper
Grab a pen and paper and write down your plan.
I mean, write down every detail.
Having it all in front of you will be a great way to stay true to that plan.
Next write down the course of action that you want to take in accordance with that plan.
2. Accountability Partner
This may sound weird, but I would suggest having an accountability partner for that plan and course of action. Share it with that person, whether it be a spouse, friend, or maybe your mom!
That person will help keep you accountable and will keep you from straying.
3. Weight Loss Group
Find a weight loss group that is additional help to help you really grasp the concept of your plan and course of action. This group could be a, "Meet in person" sort of group, or, it could be a, "Meet in an online forum" sort of group. Either way is good!
Be willing to forgive yourself if you do stray from the plan and course of action you have chosen.
This is a key to weight loss.
At some time in the plan, you will stray and splurge, it happens!
You need to forgive yourself and pick yourself back up to keep losing weight.
5. Get Back On Track
If you have started your weight loss before the holidays and have splurged, then you need to get back on track and remind yourself of what's important.
If you really care about your health, then you will be willing to move on from the splurge, give up your depression, and get back on track!
I hope that this has been insightful as you try to get back on track before the New Year's parties and before the new year!
Share these with your friends!
I promise you that it is that simple!
I leave you with these crazy easy steps.
