5 STEPS TO ENSURE A SOLID FOUNDATION FOR SUCCESS

CHAPTER 1 – 5 STEPS TO ENSURE A SOLID FOUNDATION FOR WEIGHT LOSS SUCCESS

Once you decide to start taking steps towards a healthier

lifestyle, it’s important to follow some certain criteria in

order to ensure success. From experience, the following

things are what I think are imperative to any successful

weight loss plan

Set Reasonable Goals-
If you have 50 pounds to lose, don’t plan on losing it all

in two months. Losing 1-2 pounds a week is reasonable

and maintainable, but not much more than that. So if you

want to lose that 50 pounds, plan on doing so over a

course of 6-7 months instead. This will not only be much

easier for you to maintain if you drop at a steady rate,

but it will also be a much healthier approach.

Practice Patience-

Remember that it took some time for you to get to where

you are today. So don’t expect to see progress happen

magically, and don’t get discouraged when things are

taking longer than you hoped or anticipated. The most

maintainable results are those that are achieved in a

healthy fashion and not in a crash-diet style.

Acknowledge Mistakes and Move Forward-
In the perfect world, we’d never fall off track or make

mistakes, but that’s just not reality. There will be times

where you will experience setbacks- you’ll sneak in a slice

of cake, skip a workout, find yourself at a McDonald’s

drive thru. The only time mistakes will make a dent in

your progress is if you let one turn into ten. Acknowledge

it happened, understand the trigger, forgive yourself and

move on.

Share your Goals-
We tend to feel most accountable when others around us

know what we’re working towards. For example, if you

tell your coworkers about a weight loss goal, you’ll be

less likely or at least think twice before having dessert at

a company luncheon. You may even be able to find

support groups in your community where other

individuals with common goals meet.

Celebrate Small Accomplishments-
Let’s go back to the example of wanting to lose 50

pounds. Perhaps part of your weight loss plan is to start

working out, something you’ve never really stuck to

doing. Set a goal of working out three days a week for a

month straight. Once you accomplish that, reward

yourself with something non-food related, like a trip to

the spa or a new gym outfit. It’s the small steps that get

us to the finish line, so celebrate them!

*** PLEASE NOTE****Seek Medical Clearance

First-
People tend to think they only need to be cleared by a

doctor before exercising if they have a known medical

condition or old injury, but that’s not necessarily the

Oftentimes the majority of exercise-induced injuries are a

result of an unknown heart condition of some sort in

combination with vigorous exercise. It’s not a bad idea

any way to see your doctor for an annual checkup or

physical for general well-being purposes.
