How are you planning to start the New Year and the new decade?
Will you be another New Year’s “resolutioner” who starts off with great intention, only to fall at the first hurdle?
Will you make it to the end of January or the middle of February?
Will old habits creep in and take over before you get started?
Why do these things even happen?
Why is it that with all the best intentions, you cannot break the bad habits that you have acquired over the years?
It comes down to expectations vs reality.
For most, people’s expectations far outweigh the reality of the situation when it comes to weight loss.
We have been led to believe that massive continual weight loss is THE ONLY way to lose weight.
Advertising, Fad weight loss products and television shows like ‘The Biggest Loser,’ all portray an expectation of weight loss that is simply not realistic for 99% of people.
It is not realistic because it is not sustainable or practical for a normal life.
They do not tell you what to do when weight loss stalls.
They don’t tell you that weight loss WILL stall, and it should be expected to stall.
Why will weight loss do this?
Weight loss is not linear.
You will not lose weight at the same rate every day or week.
At times, it will go up and that is completely natural.
But for most people, when weight loss stalls, they freak out and lose hope.
If your weight hasn’t moved for 2 days, relax and keep at what you are doing.
You cannot judge progress by daily fluctuations.
If your weight hasn’t moved for more than 2 weeks, it may be time to reassess your diet, training or activity levels.
This will be different if you are female as you will have weight fluctuations around your menstrual cycle, so you would be looking at monthly averages for weight loss to judge progress.
You need to go into the New Year with a new mind-set.
If you start off with the same approach that you have used since time began and it continually fails, why then do you continue to do it?
Start the New Year with a new attitude.
Start the New Year with a new you.
Allow for mistakes and bumps in the road.
Allow for family events and for unforeseen circumstances.
When you reach points like these, brush it off and get back on track.
Set yourself goals for the first month and BE REALISTIC.
A 1lb loss per week is fantastic.
There are 52 weeks in the year, so that’s 52lbs in one year at that rate of progress.
If you allow for this and you surpass it, you will have smaller victories and you will be more likely to keep going.
Setting out a 1 stone weight loss goal over January sounds great, but when you consider that 90% of people put back on their New Year weight loss and more on top of it, the 1lb per week sounds like a better target doesn’t it.
Wrapping up, I’ll leave you with 4 simple tips to help you.
- Set small goals.
- Make small changes weekly rather than daily ones.
- If it’s working don’t change it.
- If it stops working, reassess what you are doing and make small changes rather than trying a complete overhaul.
