In just a few weeks, holiday decorations will be everywhere. Instead of not being comfortable in holiday clothing and being able to relax and enjoy yourself at gatherings, let us help you drop the pounds. Whatever progress you make before the holidays will make you look and feel better as you attend the holiday events instead of declining them.
We want to help eliminate some of the holiday anxiety that so many people experience. While we cannot help with all of the holiday stresses, we can help with the anxiety caused due to the concern of weight.
Being overweight is hard on your entire body and can make you tired. We will help you learn to control how much you eat and provide individual attention so you can keep the extra pounds off.
The cycle of eating the wrong foods and overeating is hard to break. You are always aware that you need to lose weight. You're living a life filled with procrastination for “WHEN” drop the pounds. Thinking about our weight too often isn’t healthy for us. It causes us stress.
As you begin a new weight loss program, the same mind set will continue. You’ll be thinking too often about how much weight you are losing and feel you are not losing it fast or steady enough.
Taking steps in the right direction no matter how small is something to celebrate. Healthy changes in habits, exercise patterns, food choices and quantities of food are all positive choices to improve your life. Even baby steps are to be recognized and praised as well as the giant leaps when they do occur. The consistency of the positive choices as well as the numbers on the scales going down is progress to your desired weight.
Think about how you are feeling as the healthy changes are being made. Notice the difference in your energy level and mental status. Reflect on how healthy habits, exercising, healthy food choices in proper quantities are going to help you feel better, do better, focus, improve sleep and function better.
The next time you are hungry, tired, in a hurry just skip the drive thru at the fast food chain. The binge on fast food for convenience is not a healthy choice. Think about how it makes you feel afterward. Wouldn’t a stop at the grocery store to grab a healthy option have been a better decision? Your body will feel better when the best choices are made. While these decisions impact your weight loss, they also change your life.
Praise yourself for the days you can stay on track. Don’t focus on the how it will affect your weight. Think about how it will affect your health. Remember, while it is about weight loss, the ultimate benefit is a healthier you.
