How many years have you made a New Year's resolution to lose weight? How has that worked? If your resolutions haven't worked for you, then it's time to think differently.
This January make a change, not a resolution. Take everything you have learned about yourself from past resolutions and continue with strategies that worked, but others need to change.
It's time to think differently, eat differently, and be different! Rather than simply think about it, do it!
- Diet is a good word. Diet only means the way you eat. If you eat donuts all day, you have a diet of donuts. If you eat healthy, you have a healthy diet. Diet does not mean deprivation or starvation, it means choosing food items. Start thinking about what food items will nourish, satisfy, and sustain you each day.
- Eat your veggies. Incorporate fruits and/or vegetables at each meal and snack. This will ensure you get vital vitamins and nutrients throughout the day giving you much needed energy.
Care for yourself as you care for others. I would suggest you ask yourself the following questions. Give them careful consideration and continually ask the same questions. In time your answers will be different, allowing you to delve deeper into your positive changes.
- What exactly do I want to accomplish?
Work with what you are willing to do, and you'll find what you are willing to do will change. Change takes knowledge, patience, and practice. Without patience, you'll have no practice.
You can make this the year of your change, with honest answers and follow-through.
