How to Meet Your Weight Loss Goals!

How to Meet Your Weight Loss Goals

Every year at the beginning of January, Americans flood the gyms to take on the most popular New Year’s resolution: get healthy. Before long, however, the crowds waiting to use the squat rack thin out and its back to normal. Sticking to weight loss goals is difficult and there are plenty of pitfalls along the way. Here are some ways to help you stay on the path to you weight loss goals:

Set Goals and Make a Plan

The number one most important step in successfully meeting your weight loss goals is to set realistic benchmarks and put in a plan to reach them. Many people set very general goals like, “I want to lose 20 pounds” without creating a plan. When they don’t see quick progress toward that goal they give up. Instead, give yourself benchmarks you can reach to build momentum. Commit to losing 5 pounds in two weeks and create a plan to do it.

Create a workout schedule and a nutrition plan and stick to it. That will give you something concrete to focus on as you move toward your goal.

Plan Your Meals

Meal planning is a great tactic for more than just weight loss. Knowing what you are going to eat throughout the week helps save money and time. When you are going through your week without preplanning meals, you may be inclined to follow the whims of your appetite rather than stick to your nutrition plan. Plus, when the busy activities of your week start to catch up to you, you might be tempted to make the cheap and quick fast food option rather than preparing a healthy meal.

It also helps you keep track of the types of foods you eat to give you optimized nutrition to help you shed the pounds while giving you enough energy to take on the day and get you through your workout.

Preparing your meals every week may sound like a lot of work but most of the time, it can be done once or twice through the week. Say you want to have chicken and rice this week. On a Saturday, you can buy five chicken breasts, a box of rice, and five small plastic containers. You can place the chicken on a baking pan, sprinkle some seasoning on each (switch up the spices to change the flavor throughout the week), and bake it for 45 minutes. Then cook the rice while you wait. In about an hour you have a hearty and healthy lunch for the whole week.

Change Up Your Routine

If you’ve faithfully kept your meal plan and your workout routine for a few months but you feel yourself starting to get bored, you might be more likely to fall off the wagon. Plus, there are more benefits to shaking things up than simply spicing up your week. Of course, experiencing new healthy foods is more

enjoyable than eating the same old same old. However, it can help you find new healthy food options that you enjoy which will help your nutrition plan feel more like a lifestyle than a diet.

As for your workout routine, changing up the way you work out can help keep your body from adapting. When you first start a weight loss program, you may see immediate results but when after a while your body starts to get used to the added work you are doing. As your body adapts to be more efficient in your workout, it burns less fat and you hit a plateau. Changing up your routine can help break through that plateau.

AskEric: How do I stop binge/comfort eating?

           

“Eric how do I keep from binge eating or comfort eating?”

Two words!  Internal dialogue.

This is one of the main things that we focus on at our fitness retreat’s. It’s important to understand the importance of Internal dialogue and how it can effect you’re over all success. Inner Dialogue is very much like Visualization, only now instead of using the power of our visual imagination, we’re going to take control of the dialogue that occurs in our heads⎯the things we tell ourselves.  Also like Visualization, Positive Inner Dialogue is a powerful weapon against anything blocking your path to success.  If you practice it, and practice it habitually, positive outcomes are unavoidable.

Below write out your complete story for your self Dialogue.  A one page pump you up for understanding yourself and what you normally have done in the past and what can be done in the future. Reiterate your purpose! Lift the imaginary steel walls that prevent you from the right path and your  pursuit of your goals.

When we say the word “dialogue,” most of us think of lines movie characters speak or words between quotation marks in books. That’s absolutely true, but even more, dialogue is a tool that screenwriters and authors use.  And they use it for good reason.  Of course it keeps the viewer or reader from being bored out of their mind, but the main reason writers use it is to move the story in the direction they wants it to go⎯and most importantly, it reveals vital information about the character.  Much of how we feel and think about a character is based on what he says and what others say about him or her.  Just as writers use dialogue as a tool, we’re going to use inner dialogue as a weapon against your monsters⎯we’re going to move your story in the direction you want it to go and reveal the character that YOU want to be!

First, we have to be aware of the stream of words in the foreground and background of our minds.  We have to pay close attention to the words we say to ourselves and identify how they undermine our progress.  Then we’re going to change the dialogue by talking to ourselves in a manner that brings us closer and closer to our weight loss and fitness goals.

So you come out of the store, feeling better than ever, and then BOOM!  There it is…the enticing, haunting aroma of freshly baked cinnamon rolls.  The evil scent is a monster.  You feel it pulling you in.  The voice in your head goes to work:  I really shouldn’t.  Well, just one.  I’ve earned it.  But I’ve come so far.  One won’t hurt.  You’re paralyzed, thinking about placing your order.  It’s time for a decision.  What do you do?

  • Eat the hell out of some cinnamon rolls?

  • Order just one?

  • Turn and run?

  • Walk confidently away with a spring in your step, while in wearing the sexy new shoes you just bought?

Imagining yourself in situations like this is great visualization practice as well as an amazing way to keep you focused on the perfect you.  Try to imagine yourself in all kinds of situations that you encounter on a daily basis.  Or if you want to get really creative, imagine yourselves in places and situations that you might not experience frequently, but you’d like to! Practice what you will say and do to get you out of the situation!
