Reasons Why Your Weight Loss Goals Should Start From Your Mind
Today I want to dedicate this article to weight loss goals and to talk with you about why your weight loss goals should start from your mind. Enjoy!
Losing weight is more than just losing the fat, flab and extra pounds on your body. A slimmer, leaner and sexier physique will of course be a result of the hard work you have put into exercising and dieting. But it is not just the body that performs all the hard work because everything that the body does must start from the mind.
Keep in mind that if and when you have no willpower, determination and dedication to your weight loss goals, you are more likely to fail at the task. Realistic goals about weight loss that can easily be focused on and achieved should be set in your mind. The following three tips can assist you.
Lose weight based on a healthy goal: Focus on losing weight with a plan to lose the weight slowly so that you can reach your healthy goal. Let’s break it down. In using the term healthy goal we refer to the method used to lose weight as well as the number of pounds lost. The healthiest way is still the traditional diet-and-exercise combination with little to no weight loss supplements thrown in.
So, when you plan your weight loss goals, be sure to plan for the ways in which you can adopt the appropriate diet and exercise plan into your daily routine. If you lose weight slowly, that allows your body to adjust to the new demands that are being placed on it. To be in the safe zone when you first start out, health experts suggest aiming at losing 5 to 10 % of your weight. One example of this would be to try to lose 7.5-15 pounds in the beginning if your starting weight is 150 pounds.
After that you can aim for a 2 pound healthy weight loss every week. In the end, the best approach is to lose weight slowly but be sure to keep at it until the total weight loss goal in pounds is achieved. Slow and sure will keep you on the right path to weight loss.
Medium Goals: Once your short-term goals are met, then you will move on to medium goals that are more advanced. What is happening is you get early success with smaller goals, building confidence, and then move up to bigger goals, both physically and psychologically. In the second part, your goals will be higher and more challenging than at first, but mainly you will just build on the gains you have already made.
Until the goal of losing 30 pounds has been achieved, the middle phase goal will be to lose 2 pounds a week for the next two weeks. Also what will happen is to receive support when needed, eat healthier portions of food, eat smaller portions, and walk farther.
Be precise: When setting your goals, be very specific about what you want to achieve, how you can achieve it, and when you want to achieve it.
Goals are there for a reason, and the more exact they are the better chance that you will succeed with them, since they allow for evaluation. The details of your goals can be like this, 2 pounds will be lost this week , by having meals with smaller portions to eat, and after dinner by going on a brisk walk of 15 minutes.
In the end, we can see that successful weight loss requires strong determination as well as physical work. This combination of desirable traits can be accomplished much easier if the proper goals are set in the beginning. So use this information to plan a healthy weight loss program that has measurable goals and a tracking mechanism.
