Is your big E the big EXCUSE or the big EFFORT?

To succeed with weight loss, you need lots of ‘E’s’ – energy, enthusiasm, efficiency, exercise, and you certainly need to put in lots of effort!  Sometimes, however, we find it easier to put in lots of excuses!

You know that after joining Good Habits to change your eating habits and live a healthier lifestyle the excuses may start!  You might call them ‘reasons’, convincing yourself as to why you can’t, or shouldn’t, or won’t keep it up!

Change is tough. Old habits really do die-hard. New habits don’t just spring automatically into place. You have to be convinced that this change to a new healthy lifestyle is entirely possible and is more preferable to your old one.

Not being sold altogether on the benefits of such a change is what excuses are all about.

Each time an “excuse” raises its ugly head, reconnect with the benefits and your goal – fight it and stay motivated!

Change takes a lot of extra energy.  To succeed with permanent change you have to enhance your emotional, mental and spiritual energy every day.

  • Accept yourself – stop worrying and fighting with yourself about how you will lose the extra weight.  Accept you are overweight and you want to do something about it.  This can give you fresh energy to do it.
  • Focus on what you want – have a clear image of your goal. The answer on ‘how you get there’ will come as soon as you become clearer about what you want.
  • Set reasonable goals – don’t sabotage yourself by expecting too much.
  • Change three small things – you can change your whole life by changing a few ‘little’ things at a time.
  • Give your taste buds a chance – you were not born with a taste for chocolate or cheesecake.  It takes time to adjust to new foods and your new way of eating.
