Successful Weight Loss Tips for 2017
On the first day of January, you hesitantly put a desire to lose weight at the top of your list of New Year’s Day resolutions. Because you’ve failed at weight loss more times than you can count, you’re more than a little skeptical. You’re paranoid your weight loss journey will end before February again. If you can relate to this scenario, don’t despair. Make 2017 the year you reach your target weight by adhering to the following simple tips.
Set Small Goals
When launching a weight loss plan, many people immediately set a large, long-term goal. For instance, you might desperately desire to lose 100 pounds. Constantly dwelling on a lofty weight loss objective can be daunting, and even discouraging. Even if you enjoy initial, dieting success, you might feel you’ll never realize your ultimate dream. Instead of focusing on the end game, set small goals to motivate you along the way. For instance, you may decide you want to lose a realistic 10 pounds a month.
In addition to small goals, rewards are also great motivators. Whenever you reach a weight loss milestone, pamper yourself. However, don’t reward yourself with a hefty portion of diet derailing chocolate cake, strawberry ice cream, or deep fried onion rings. Instead, treat yourself to something beneficial such as:
- A massage
- A manicure
- A new book
- A new pair of sneakers
- A visit to a nearby museum
Enlist a Weight Loss Partner
Trying to lose weight alone can be intimidating. To boost your chances of getting fit this year, enlist a weight loss partner. A friend or family member who shares your desire to lose weight will likely prove to be a great asset. The two of you can:
- Swap healthy recipes
- Work out at the gym together
- Encourage each other to stay the course
Don’t allow past failures to impede your weight loss success in 2017. Would you like to discover more weight loss tips to help you on your journey to better health and happiness? Consider scheduling a free, initial meeting with a representative at a Metabolic Research Center in your neighborhood.
