It is estimated that 9 out of 10 people who lose weight will gain it all back in less than 3 years 😲
Our society doesn’t have a weight loss problem; our society has a weight-maintenance problem.
If you don’t read anything else I’m about to say below, just know this:
Keeping the weight off AFTER you lose it really starts BEFORE you even begin your journey.
Before you start any program, “diet”, or “new thing”, unless you’re looking for a quick result that won’t last, a great question to ask yourself is this:
“Can I see myself eating this way/living this way 5 years from now?”
If you’re miserable in the process of losing weight/getting healthy, you’re NEVER going to stick with it.
The biggest key to success is to develop maintainable HABITS.
Your goal should be to develop the HABITS it takes to get healthy, not to hit some superficial number on the scale.
Ok. So let’s fast forward to a year from now.
Let’s say that you have lost the weight you wanted to lose, you’re looking great and feeling amazing.. now what?!
If you have developed habits that were sustainable, it should be a no-brainer to keep doing what you were doing!
The reason so many people end up back where they started is because they stop doing the things they were doing to get there!
The big keys to long-term success are:
-Take your time
-learn how to eat until 80% full
-eat undistracted
🌟Making good choices MOST of the time (meaning, it’s ok to splurge every now and then!)
🌟Exercising for 20-30 minutes, 2-4 times per week (and on the other days, go for a walk!)
Being healthy is a JOURNEY, not a destination.
As we approach the holiday season, full of yummy foods and desserts and family traditions, head into it EXPECTING that you’re going to enjoy yourself.
Don’t go overboard, PLAN when you’re going to indulge, and “be good” MOST of the time!
Life was made to be LIVED and enjoyed.
Our hope is for you to get to a point where you’re just enjoying your life in a happy, healthy way 😁
