January 9, 2011: Resolutions Strong?

Jan 09

Excuse: I’m not good enough.  I fail at everything I do.  Nothing works for me.
 It’s been 9 days and I haven’t lost a pound.

SolutionStay positive and keep your eyes on the prize. Do not lose momentum. The first few weeks of any program are going to be the most difficult.  Did you put a picture of your ideal body on your fridge?  How’s that food log coming along?  What about workouts?  Are you moving and shaking it at least 3 times per week?  How about nighttime snacking?  Remember:  turn off the kitchen light and brush your teeth.  Change your habits to good ones!

Don’t say: I will lose 50 pounds by Valentine’s Day. Because you won’t. And you shouldn’t. It’s not healthy. Aim for a pound or two per week. Some weeks you won’t lose any but over the course of 6 months or a year, you’re a new person!  Book a short getaway to the beach every few months to stay motivated.
