When you step on the scale each morning, do you get a bit panicky? Perhaps you have come to terms with the fact that it's not just five or ten pounds that you want to lose. Instead, the number of pounds that you need to shed is a secret that you won't even share with your most trusted friends. If that's the case, from making some personal commitments to yourself to arranging to go to a weight loss clinic, here are some things that might help you.
Personal Commitment - Have you ever heard that a goal won't be met unless you write that goal down? Think of buying a small notebook in which you can record things that pertain to your goal. Besides writing down the fact that you want to lose weight, consider writing down the number of pounds that you want to lose, and even a date that you want the extra weight to be a thing of your past.
Be realistic. For example, if you recently had a baby, it probably took you nine months to gain your extra weight. If that's so, then it might take you nine months to lose those pounds, too. Think of putting a picture of yourself that was taken before you gained weight on the first page of your notebook. That very picture might be one of the key elements that will inspire you to lose weight.
A Weight Loss Clinic - Have you considered going to a weight loss clinic? If you have been thinking about doing just that, consider joining right now instead of waiting until after the holidays. At the weight loss clinic there will be professionals who will help you to get through the holiday season without gaining any more weight. And, in fact, you might even lose weight as you adopt practices that you learn at the weight loss clinic. For example, you might be counseled to eat a small meal before you attend a dinner party. By doing that simple act, you won't feel like overeating at the party.
If you did start recording things in your notebook, show it to those with whom you'll be working at the weight loss clinic.You will more than likely be encouraged to write down the things you eat each day. You'll be shown how you can substitute certain foods for others. For example, you might be encouraged to eat your hamburgers in a lettuce wrap instead of in regular buns. Stick to the things you learn at the weight loss clinic and your goal will surely be met.
