It Fits Tips

Just got this e-mail through work from Medical Weight Loss. I thought I would share it with everyone.

January is over and if you made a resolution, how is it going? If you are like most people who set big weight loss goals and are finding yourself coming up short, remember the difference between those who fail and those who succeed really has nothing to do with how well you did last month. Real success with healthy changes comes when we realize we still have the next 11 months of possibilities. So, if you did set big goals in January and the last couple of weeks haven't gone as well as you would have hoped, try some of this month's tips to help you get back on track for the rest of the year.

Getting Back on Track:

. Make it a daily 'norm' - Eating right should be a permanent lifestyle change. The journey is actually more important than reaching the goal. Why? Because it's the journey that teaches the behaviors and reinforces new habits needed to maintain the goal.

. Re-examine your WHY - We only commit and do the things that are truly important us. Asking yourself,"What's in it for me?" and "Why do I truly want this?" are great starting point questions to help get you back on track.

. Overcome the slip-ups - Slip-ups are completely fine (even expected), and there's not a single person on Earth who hasn't stumbled in their path to success. Take some time to design a plan to prevent future slip-ups. Don't ever give up, commit to your plan, and start again.

. Start tracking your successes - When we let set-backs become the deciding factor, it is too easy to throw in the towel. Change your mindset by focusing only on your successes, no matter how small. It can create the positive energy needed to keep you going.

"The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new." Socrates
