Time to check in on those Resolutions you made at the beginning of the year. Was one of your goals to lose weight this year?
Answer this question honestly. Am I slowly losing weight, staying the same, or am I slowly gaining weight?
It’s time to change your mind set about your goals if you are in the last two categories. If you thought “Lose 30 pounds” sounded like a nice goal, that is not good enough. You need a compelling reason WHY you need to reach that goal.
Maybe it’s because you went to the beach and felt self conscious about your body. Maybe you stood up before school, your jeans ripped to shreds, and you had to give a speech in front of your Psychology class that day. As a totally made up example that never happened to me my senior year in high school. Could be you just don’t feel good at your current weight.
Whatever it is, you need something that DRIVES you to reach your goals. What’s going to get you through your workout when you’re tired, hot, busy,etc…? It’s not going to be “Lose 30 pounds”.
For example, who do you think is going to stick to their workout plan. The person who said "I want to lose 30 pounds" or the person that says "I'm going to lose this weight because I want to be around to see my kids grow up"?
Whatever your goals is, find that personal, compelling reason that will propel you to success. Don't dwell on the past, it is time start fresh right now with your new mind set., and really go after those goals.
