Weight Loss

When deciding to make changes to your life whether these are for a  new career, to eliminate unhealthy habits or an addiction, there needs to be a plan in place to track the progress.

It is easy to say to yourself I will start tomorrow; then tomorrow never comes!  But, if you have written down a plan and made a commitment to yourself to make those changes, it is more challenging to ignore unless you rip your plan up and throw it away.  Of course, you would then be throwing away the opportunity to make those life changes that will either make you more content and fulfilled with your life or indeed life changes that could save your life!  The choice at the end of the day is entirely yours.

The Recipe

It is not difficult to make life changes; look at the example below.  However, there is a recipe for a plan to be successful; a slice of commitment, a slice of determination, a good spoonful of willpower at first (willpower does not stay around too long), and a big slice of motivation to follow through!

You need to picture the outcome rather than what you see now.  Imagine having that new job you craved, or becoming a non-smoker, giving up alcohol, or losing weight and feeling great.    You need to see yourself graduated with that degree in hand, proud and excited that you did what you promised yourself.

Give it a go and see how you get along; remember the recipe:

  • a slice of commitment
  • a slice of determination
  • a good spoonful of willpower at first (willpower does not stay around too long)
  • a big slice of motivation to follow through

Good luck, Life Coach You
