When it comes to weight loss, most people focus on achieving their outcome goal; they want to be able to fit into a particular dress or hit a certain mark on the weighing scale. And while the outcome goal helps you keep your eye on the prize, it doesn’t do much to help you along your journey.
Healthy weight loss is a long process; it requires patience and discipline. An outcome goal is something you attain after months of work. To stay motivated in your weight loss journey, focus on “process goals”; these are milestones you set for yourself that give you the motivation you need to keep going.
Just because a diet or workout plan worked for a friend doesn’t mean it’ll be suitable for you. We all have different lifestyles, metabolisms, behaviors, and motivations. Your weight loss plan needs to be tailored to you.
Strict diets don’t work for many people because they lack the discipline to stick to them. It’s much easier for them to identify bad habits that are causing them to put on weight, and replacing them with healthier ones.
According to studies, people who track their food intake have an easier time shedding unwanted pounds and sustaining their weight loss goals than those who don’t.
Maintaining a food diary involves writing down everything you eat; from the big meals to the small snacks you picked up on your way back from work—you need to note all of it down during the day.
This will help you identify harmful patterns and foods that you slowly need to remove from your diet.
