You're ready to begin our free online weight loss help. Let's talk about "mindset." This step is skipped by most people, and it's crucial to the success of your weight loss. Let's be smart about habits that make that weight melt right off.
Golden Rule: Start each step AFTER you have fully convinced yourself to change.
Timeline: One or Two Steps per month. That's your strategy for success.
You will be wildly successful when . . . you have fully convinced yourself to adopt each Step of our free online weight loss plan. These are not meant to be temporary changes - they're not meant to be done for six weeks to get into your favorite jeans, then return to your old habits. Make these Steps a permanent and lasting change in your life. That takes thought and a decision on your part.
Why? Each Step was a TURNING POINT in my life - formed over the past 20 years as I read and paid attention to health information. The reason they worked was because 1) I accepted the information, 2) then WANTED to cut something out of my life and 3) replaced it with something better. That's the secret to my success. Sounds doable, doesn't it?
What if you're skeptical? Some people are discouraged - so much yo-yo weight loss & gain or too many failures. That is hard. Maybe "willing to give it a try" is the best you can do. Then give it your best.
It's FREEING to make one small change at a time.
It takes 21 days to create a habit, and we're giving ourselves a whole month. It's that important. It took me 20 years to develop these free online weight loss Steps; give yourself 6 months to do them. They take time to sink in and change your life to the core.
You didn't gain weight in a week, and you can't lose it in a week.
You're tempted to jump in and start all these free online weight loss Steps at the same time. You will crash and burn. Please don't crash and burn. Honestly, weight loss can be easier than you ever imagined.
I am very practical - I like to do what works for my patients. I tell them that they need to believe in what they are doing and stick with the plan.
Most habits are formed by doing things habitually
over 3 to 4 weeks. After that you tend to miss it. Plan to lose 1 -2
pounds a week. Anything more than this is water or bowel weight. That
is why people "yo-yo" so much. If you can lose steadily then you will
keep it off. Do not look at the scales but once a day at most
- this is a long term thing - it's crazy to look at the scale more that
that. Get a partner to keep you accountable. Good luck!
