3. Chunk it down. Having a large, long term goal can sometimes be overwhelming. Take your big goal and break it down into smaller, more manageable pieces.4. Find an accountability partner or group. Having a support system can be key to weight loss. Sharing meal plans, what’s working, what’s not working, and leaning on one another can make all the difference.
5. Plan ahead. Grab your calendar and plan out your fitness, your “Me” time and your meal prep and planning time. When you have a plan in place, you tend to keep it..
6. Get rid of the all-or-nothing attitude. It’s okay if you’re not perfect. It will be important that you continue to keep moving forward, making tweaks as you go. Give yourself grace where you need.
7. Post your goals where you can see them. Most folks are visual. Seeing your goals and referring to them daily can help you stay on track. One “trick” that has worked for many of my clients is a sticky note posted on the bathroom mirror.
8. Reward yourself. As you reach your mini goals, reward yourself with non food items. A new book, a manicure, a new pair of sneakers. There are many ways to do so but find something that motivates you to keep on task.
