The Weight Loss Goal 😨

Still Looking at Those Weight Loss Goals?

They are not going anywhere, until you do! 

Weight loss is a transformation of your own personal habits. 


Let's say, for the sake of this blog....that our goal is weight loss.

This may or may not be one of your specific goals, but getting healthy, losing weight, and reducing the risk for heart attack, stroke, diabetes & other help problems are definitely some of the most common ones out there.

If you have a habit of eating unhealthy foods and avoiding the gym, you are not alone. When age 50 starts to creep up on people, their health becomes a primary concern.

So, suppose that the goal that you have set for yourself is to lose 30 pounds and to eat healthier. You don't want to set goals or develop habits that are negatives.

You want to create positive habits instead.

The reason for this is simple: when you try to change bad habits, you are taking something away from yourself- something you likely enjoy.

Instead, form good habits that will automatically replace the bad habits. That way, you are giving yourself something good and not taking anything away- at least in your mind.

The difference is subtle, but it really will make a difference.

So, when it comes to identifying habits for success for this example, let's start with what you don't want to do.

Habits to change (Negatives)
  • Stop eating so much junk food
  • Stop watching so much evening TV
  • Quit going to all-you-can-eat buffets
  • Lay off soda
See how all of those things are taking something away from your life?

You are removing things that you enjoy, and that's just depressing.

It wil be very difficult to motivate yourself to change your habits because you feel as if you are giving up lots of stuff that you enjoy.

But let's change those habits slightly and make them positive.

Habits to add (Positives)

  • Start eating a piece of fruit every day 
  • Spend 30 minutes in the evening taking a casual toll
  • Start eating at nicer restaurants with a healthier menu
  • Start drinking more water (flavored if desired)

Can you see how much of a difference this makes?

When you are choosing new habits or trying to break old ones, you want to make sure that you are giving yoursef something instead of taking it away.

Even though you know somewhere inside that it is basically the same action, you can fool your brain into being more motivated this way.

I hope this helps!
