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.

“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!

We have an amazing challenge for you!

But take caution: doing this exercise 200 times a day may put you at risk of having a bikini bottom by June. See picture below.

If you’re a Squatting Veteran, Squatting Rookie, or have had any trouble shaping your butt or legs and really tightening up, FEAR NOT! This is the perfect video for you.

Squats are one of the most popular exercises in the world and one of the ones most frequently done incorrectly. Although squats are considered to be a leg exercise, it’s really a full body movement that works almost every muscle group in the body. So whether your goal is to gain strength or lose weight, squats are one of the fastest ways to get there.

If this is the first time you’ve squatted, you might be intimidated about starting a new exercise. Don’t sweat it! Or rather..DO SWEAT IT! BUCK UP! We’re here to WORK! We’ll walk you through every step and make sure you’re doing everything correctly and getting the most out of your exercise! If you’re up to the challenge, do this exercise constantly, every day, and you will see the results you crave!

Ask Eric:  “Help! How can I get control of my life & my weight?” 

Ask Eric:  “Help!  I feel life swirling around me, but am unable to enjoy it or get control of it.  This has resulted in me being in a very unhealthy place with my weight and my health. How can I get control of my life and my weight so that I can be happy?”

This is a painful question that so many people are struggling with in their lives.  The feeling that you cannot have the things in your life that you most desire.  The reality is, that you absolutely can, and I am going to spend the next few weeks helping you to do just that…..get control of your life, your health and  your weight, so that you can achieve all of the things that you desire!  

FIGHTING MONSTERS

You might be thinking, “Fighting Monsters?  Is this guy serious?”  Obviously fighting monsters is an analogy, because as you’ve been told from a very young age, there’s no such thing as monsters.  However, you were afraid of them, and that fear was very real, not to mention some of the actions you took to avoid them.  So, if the concept of fighting monsters seems silly to you, think of monsters as anything and everything that stands in the way of you achieving your life goals, as well as your fitness and weight loss goals.  And if, by some freak occurrence, we discover any real monsters along the way, we’ll mess them up, too.

QUICK BIT ABOUT THE GUY WHO’S FIGHTING WITH YOU

If we’re going to be fighting monsters together, you probably want to know a little bit about the guy who will be fighting with you.  Specifically, what makes me a monster-fighting hero who can melt pounds off of you with superhuman mind powers?  Well, unfortunately for both of us, I’m not a superhero, and I can’t telekinetically make you thin, healthy and happy.  I’m just Eric Viskovicz, a regular guy who has battled some pretty fierce monsters over the years, including a debilitating stutter, a propensity for binge eating, and an 8-year-old monster named Bernard

I’m also a guy who loves what he does.  I love getting results.  I love seeing people happy and successful.  I love that people from all walks of life, including several elite athletes and celebrities, have turned to me to help them achieve their weight loss and fitness goals.  But mostly, I simply love that I’ve chosen a path (that I’m still on by the way) of self-reflection, self-honesty, dedication, discipline, and determination.  Because I’ve taken this path, I‘ve been rewarded with my beautiful partner in crime, Sarah, our three awesome children, and a successful fitness business that affords me the opportunity to do the one thing I love to do most: Help people like you.

Before we march off to battle, it’s important that I give you a little background on the L.I.F.E. Power System that we use at Live in Finess.  This is the formula for success that I’ve developed over the last couple of decades, and it works where other programs, fad diets, gimmicks, etc. don’t.  How?  It’s based on sound scientific principles, from nutrition science and kinesthetics to cognitive therapy and meditation techniques.  But the key to the system’s success is that we work from the inside out, moving from your thoughts to what you tell yourself, then ultimately to nutrition and exercise.  In other words, we’re going to kick the you-know-what out of the monsters that have been inside of you for years; we’re going to beat down those that dwell outside of you, and then we’re going to live a healthier, happier, fitter, fuller life.

Like you, every person I help, and have helped, is different.  They have different ages, genders, body types, shapes, sizes, and goals.   They also, like you, have a very distinct group of monsters that they have to face, and usually quite a few of them.  So many in fact, that instead of listing every possible monster you might encounter, I’m going to classify them into manageable groups:

The Monster Under the Bed – These are the monsters you can’t see or hear.

The Monster in the Attic – These are the ones you can hear, and the sounds, at times, are so frightening that they’re paralyzing.

The Monsters Inside You – These are specific to you.  They are born with you and will always be inside you.  These we’re not going to fight necessarily⎯ we’re going to tame them.

The Monsters Around the Corner – These show up on a daily basis and try to trip you up.  We are definitely fighting these!

 In the weeks to come we’ll delve into exactly who and what these monsters are and how we’re going to defeat them.  All right, it’s time to go kick some ass!  Don’t be scared… I have a battle plan and a whole bunch of sweet weapons.

Stay tuned Until Next week when we tackle our first monster, “The Monster Under the Bed”.  And if you are itching to get started and make the changes you need to make right now, check out our life changing program at Live in Fitness  and you will benefit from Private in Depth Sessions with Me where we will battle the monsters together!
