Are you one of those unlucky types that get excited for about the first week of a new diet plan? You’ve purchased the right exercise clothes; got the gym membership you wanted. Or maybe just found time in your hectic schedule to do exercises while the kids are doing something else?
Everything is in place except a week or month down the road, everything is in place except you. Life happens and you've found about a hundred other things to do besides stay on your diet plan or weight loss workout?
In this article I'm gong to discuss exactly what happened and how to avoid it. Even make it fun or at least have the energy to stay on target for you weight loss goal.
I would almost bet money what happened is you didn't have a plan. Sure you may have had a diet plan but not a plan for you. Or should I say the part of you that has a tendency to not stay focused, to easily be distracted.
And how did you become distracted so easily you may ask? You didn't have a concrete goal in place. An ideal you, a future you weighing in at exactly your ideal weight.
Look at it this way. You've always known what you don't want. You don't want the large sizes or the clothes that fit too tight. Or the health risks, you're tired of the Doctor giving you the lecture every time you visit. We all know what we don't want.
The best way to keep the part of you that wanders is give yourself the unshakable goal of knowing what you do want and a way to get there that is fun or at least doable without a lot of pain, right?
And the way you do this is have a very sharp image in your mind's eye of what you would look like. And just how you would act? Ask yourself questions like what would my life be like at my ideal weight.
Now just don't blow past this part. Relax, close your eyes and really ponder this for a second. What would your life be like if you were at your ideal weight?
Now you're getting the picture. Focus on what you do want in detail and before long you will find it easier to stay focused on your weight loss goals.
You might even find that it's fun getting there, a lot of people have.
You're no different, just do it now! Here's a weight loss mp3 that can keep your diet plan goal in mind!
