A Positive Mindset is Key
The 12-week countdown to summer is just around the corner – and many of us aren’t ready to don tank tops, much less figure-hugging spandex. Whether your goal is a bikini-ready body or just to be in better shape for that special wedding, reunion or vacation happening this summer, now is the time to get your head in the game. It all starts with a positive attitude, and avoiding these three common weight loss mistakes.
- Making excuses. One of the biggest weight loss challenges many people face is overcoming their own negative mindset. When you say “I’ll try to get to the gym three times this week,” you give yourself the option of failing and undermining your progress. Instead, turn those words into “I will get to the gym three times this week.” Once you are willing to let go of the excuses, it will become easier to stay on track.
- Going at it alone. If you struggle to stick to a weight loss plan, social support could be the key to successful weight loss. A study by The Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology found 95% of those who started a weight loss program with friends completed the program, compared to 76% of those who tackled a program alone. Buddies were also 42% more likely to maintain their weight loss.
- Not tracking habits. If you want to lose weight, you need to measure the two things that control your weight: eating and exercise. By recording your eating habits and your workouts daily, you stay accountable, you exercise more and your weight loss goals become easier to achieve.
