Every year, millions of Americans make resolutions to lose weight and conquer what some refer to as the “battle of the bulge.” And while they start out strong in January, all too often, the towel gets thrown in by mid-February. This is through no fault of their own, as many set lofty, sometimes unattainable goals yet don’t realize the massive strides it takes to achieve them. Fear not; we’re here today to provide some much-needed help in making 2023 the year you shed your past and become a brand-new you!
Don’t Start Out So Large
This is a mistake that many people make each and every year. They set goals that are admirable but are so lofty that the motivation burns out too quickly. For example, people say they’re going to lose 50 pounds, run two to three miles a week, and eliminate junk food from their diet. The best advice we can give is to start out small and work your way up to the larger goals.
Starting Out Small
Seeing that we’re still in January, it’s a good time to start out your journey to a new you by setting some smaller goals based on the ones we previously mentioned. For instance, instead of losing 50 lbs, set a goal to lose three or five. Rather than run two to three miles a week, set a goal to exercise three times a week in increments of twenty to thirty minutes. And when it comes to implementing changes in your diet, simply writing down what you consume on a daily basis is a good way to see the correlation between healthy and unhealthy choices.
The reason so many people give up on attempting to achieve lofty weight-loss goals is that they lose hope in their progress. By setting smaller goals and accomplishing them each and every week, you can see a gradual change and feel good about how far you’ve come. Nothing happens overnight, but the most important thing to remember is that every journey, no matter how long, always begins with a simple step.
