Losing weight and keeping it off isn’t about a quick crash diet or detox-it requires creating lasting habits that lead to a healthier lifestyle. This can be particularly challenging during high stress times when your normal routines get altered. However by incorporating these tips you can set yourself up for success in the long run.
1-Find Your Why and Write It Down-Like anything else we need meaning behind why we’re doing something. Whether it’s to attract the opposite sex or get 6 pack abs knowing your force of motivation is helpful. Write down your goals abs why you’re doing them. Read them often if not daily and you’ll see better success.
2-No Such Thing As Perfect- Some people can be too hard on themselves or too strict. Being self-aware and knowing that you can be this way is important so you can stop it when you notice it. Weight loss success is about getting to know yourself, and how you treat yourself. Don’t try to be perfect but strive to improve and you’ll see better results.
3-Make Fitness Fun– Go for a beach or park workout, play a sport, finding a movement you enjoy and look forward too is key. If you like weight training do more of that. Exercise bring feel good endorphins but only if you enjoy it will you stick to it.
4- Measure Success Beyond The Scale-A number on the scale doesn’t always tell the full picture about health, and it can be frustrating if that’s all you’re fixated on. Instead, there are several ways to measure progress beyond the scale, including noticing your energy levels, how your clothes fit, and whether you’re feeling stronger and less stressed.
5-Sleep For Success-If you’re not getting enough sleep at least 7–9 hours a night), it’s harder to lose weight. The quality of your sleep affects your metabolism and hunger hormones. When you’re sleep-deprived, you tend to feel hungrier and eat more than when you’re well-rested. Make sure you work on a healthy evening routine by keeping sleep patterns as consistent as possible. Try to go to sleep and wake up at the same time every day and schedule time to unwind without any blue light from devices like phones or laptops, which could negatively affect your sleep. Instead, try reading a book or warm bath.
