As we approach the new year, many of us have thought long and hard about what our New Year’s Resolution will be. It is very likely that improving health and weight loss will be involved in your resolution.
Do you find yourself making the same resolution year after year??? Been there done that?? Tried this diet..That diet.. The newest fitness craze…The latest exercise gadget… But find yourself unable to maintain the changes or weight loss you might have achieved… If you are 100# over your ideal body weight you may be a candidate for weight loss surgery. Weight loss surgery for many will provide you a tool to help you achieve those new year’s resolutions! Others may not be a candidate for weight loss surgery, but some tips can assist you in achieving your goals as well.
1. Be realistic. Do not set unattainable goals for yourself. Making goals too difficult to achieve, often leads to failure…Strive for attainable goals such as stopping soda or juice rather than setting a unrealistic weight loss goal of 20# in one month or fitting into your little black dress from 10 years ago in just a few short weeks.
2.Keep a journal. Track your progress. Keep up your motivation by realizing that all the small changes you are making are adding up to improve your overall health and wellness.
3. Take it one day at a time..Change takes time.. Focus on today and doing the very best you can. Slip up? That is ok. We are not perfect. You did not erase all your hard work in one day. Tomorrow is a new day!
4. Stay positive and surround yourself with support. Do what you feel is best for you and your dreams. Do not let others comments or negative opinions guide your decisions. Surround yourself with friends and family that will help you achieve your resolutions.
5. Do not give up. Keep your resolution or goal in mind and keep striving for success !
Wishing you all a Very Happy and Healthy New Year!!!!
