“There’s an old saying: Lose it slowly, keep it off. This adage makes sense for at least one reason: Losing weight slowly means you’ve had time to adopt new behaviors, like eating less and exercising more. So take it SLOW. Don’t try to take off 20 pounds in one month. We’re in such a rush to “take it all off” right away that we try to do too much too soon. Losing 1 to 2 pounds a week is the most healthy and you’re more likely to keep it off that way.”
Reach for MINImilestones. Instead of focusing on just losing 25 pounds, go for — and celebrate — that first 5-pound loss. Set short term goals and start SMALL, but think about LONG-TERM goals. “So if your long term goal is to lose 30 pounds by this time next year, your short term goal would be to get through today without eating too much.” Wishing you a great day!
