Setting Goals To Lose Weight
We have to have a “why” when we set a goal. I will also call it a compelling reason. People think their “why” is why they'll stop overeating, but that's not how it works.
When you're losing weight, your “why” doesn't make donuts taste bad or make pizza unappealing. Your “why” gets you started and reminds you in those moments of temptation why you're doing it.
At some point, we have to agree to not be a quitter anymore. In the moments you really want to quit, you may not be able to do your best, but you just keep going.
You quit on yourself when you don't process why you overate. When you decide to blow it for three days. When you decide to totally give up.
Solving your problem:
You have to tell tell yourself…
- “Have confidence”
- “Believe in yourself”
- “I'm going to do this”
- ” When the problems come, I'll figure them out.”
Overeating on the weekends used to be an excuse for being overweight, now it is just a problem to solve.
I talk about my goals from the future of where I'm going. Don't alter your future because you're so focused on your past. Focus on where you're going.
Before starting another diet, ask yourself these questions:
1. Why do you want to lose weight?
2. Who is waiting on you to become the healthier version of you that loves yourself and loves this version of you?
3. What will life look like once I finally solve weight loss?
4. What problems in your life go away when you finally lose weight?
These are such important tools of weight loss.
When you know what life you want, it makes it clear what you need to do to get there.
