Mantra for the year: New Year New You!

 

Let this thought really sink in: This IS the year you will reach your weight loss goals. You will be the vision of what you imagine in your mind….You have one don’t you? A vision in your mind of what you look like when your weight loss goals are reached? You should. If you don’t have a picture or idea of what you would like to accomplish then how will you know that you have reached your goals? You can say you want to be size (X) or weigh (X) lbs but can you imagine what that looks like on you?

 

Most people start of the year saying that they are finally going to lose the weight, but this is where they stop. Someone will ask them how they are going to do it and they reply, “I don’t know, exercise and stuff.” This is not the way to achieve your weight loss success. Now is the time to plan for your weight loss. Visualize the pounds coming off you and imagine how you will be different once they do. Are you going to be a completely different person? Probably not, but you might have more confidence and try some things you were embarrassed to before…dancing, perhaps?

This sounds hard, and I am not good at planning. This is just an excuse. It is not your truth, but just some way for you to put off what you know you should be doing. Ever start something you thought was going to be hard and once you started you realized it really didn’t take that much effort to accomplish it? Your weight loss can follow the same path. Will you be able to eat as much as you want? Well, no. Eating as much as you want got you to where you are now. Will you instead focus on eating until you are full? Yes, this should be one of your goals, taking the time to realize when you are eating that you are full, but not stuffed.

How can you eat until you are full without overeating? This is where Skinny Fiber comes in. It is a way to tell your body you are full after eating less food. Skinny Fiber has glucomannan as an ingredient. Glucomannan is a soluble fiber, that when ingested thirty minutes before a meal with at least 8 oz of water, will swell to about fifty times its size in your stomach. With the glucomannan taking up room in your stomach, you will have the full feeling before actually eating too much. Now, this is where listening to your body plays a role.

Some people just eat until the food is gone. They are members of the clean plate club. No matter how much food you put in front of them, they will eat until there is no food left. You need to say goodbye to this type of eating. It is not healthy, and will definitely not help you reach your weight loss goals. Instead, you need to pay attention when you are eating. It takes twenty minutes for food to make it from your mouth to your stomach. Twenty minutes. When some people eat, they wolf down so much food that there is already too much in their body, and they still eat. As they sit there, they get an uncomfortably full feeling that just gets worse as the minutes tick away. To pay attention while you are eating, you will need to eat slower, start out with less on your plate, and take a break while eating. Two ways to slow down while eating are to put your fork down between bites and/or talk more.

 

Since you are eating slower, you will be more aware that your hunger is gone and you feel satisfied. This is when you stop eating. You do not say, just one more bite, maybe a little more to finish it off, or what’s one more bite. Nope, you need to put your fork down and walk away. You are paying attention to your body now, and you will see how little food it actually takes for your hunger to go away. Then you will think about how much longer you normally ate and how much unnecessary food you have been consuming. Your eating habits will change.

 

This is your year! You will succeed at weight loss!

So you have started to lose the weight, your clothes are getting looser, and people are commenting that you look great. Of course, they want to know your secret and you are thrilled to tell them about your Skinny Fiber. Everything seems to be going well, and then it starts. The little things that creep up and sabotage your weight loss efforts. Do you fall into the trap of committing any of these weight loss hindering activities?

 

1. Too Many Cheat Days

 

It’s not a problem to have that cake, you’ve eaten well all week. What’s one piece of cake? Not as much of a problem if you hadn’t already eaten the pie, snacked on the caramel corn, and tasted the ice cream drinks that were being made in the days before. While eating a little something extra is not really a problem, continually adding more food to your day will hinder your weight loss efforts. Chips on occasion are fine, but when they are paired with nachos, pretzels, hotdogs, cake, and other such food, your weight loss efforts will slide backwards. It is best, if you plan on having something extra, to have it all on one day, or if that is even too much, then have it during one meal on one day.

 

2. Setting Unrealistic Goals

 

Announcing on Friday that you are going to lose 25 lbs by the end of the weekend is an example of an unrealistic goal. Setting goals that are highly unattainable will set you up for a feeling of failure and dread. This isn’t about how you are going to fail. This is about how you are going to succeed. So why not make a more realistic goal of losing 1 to 2 lbs per week? Then there might be a week where you don’t lose a pound—have you failed? No. The next week you could end up losing 3lbs. Sometimes it is just the body catching up to the changes that are taking place within it.

 

3. Being Too Restrictive

 

Telling yourself that there will be no sugar, no carbs, and no junk, ever again will set you up for failure. Telling yourself that you will only eat at these times and only this one food, is also going to set you up for failure. Boredom will set in and so will the thought of eating some other food, any other food. Sometimes the restrictions people place on their eating means that they will be missing essential nutrients. Then they become more prone to colds and flu. It is best to follow the rule of changing one eating habit per week. Maybe the first week, have pop three or four days instead of seven. The next week swap out an unhealthy snack for more vegetables (while maintaining the reduced pop intake). 

 

4. Not Having A Good Weight Loss Buddy

 

Teaming up with a friend who does not have the same weight loss motivation can hinder your progress. You want to eat right and exercise and s/he wants to drown him-/herself in a super bucket of popcorn swimming in butter. Hey, s/he’ll start his/hers diet tomorrow. What’s the harm in that? Well, his/her diet will not start tomorrow, either, because s/he will have some other excuse to put it off. You, on the other hand, are ready to lose weight; you have the strength and will power, and could use a buddy to keep you going strong. It is smart to think about what is best for you when choosing a buddy. What would your ideal weight loss buddy be like? Do you know anyone who fits that description? A friend, a family member, or someone in one of your social networking circles? Connect with that person and share your weight loss goals.

 

5.  Not Committing Yourself To Weight Loss

 

Like your buddy in the above mentioned scenario, you ate well yesterday so today you will reward yourself with a big piece of cake. You have already calculated that you need to walk a for a couple hours to burn that off and you plan on doing that tomorrow anyway so you are going to indulge. Oh, ice cream too? Maybe you could add swimming tomorrow to your walking. Now you are getting tired just thinking of all the exercise you will need to do to work off the cake and ice cream you are eating today so maybe some caffeine will fix that. Not just regular coffee though, you want some tasty flavored number that has 600 calories in it. Now you have decided that you have eaten your calorie allotment for today AND tomorrow already so you might as well give up, and it is so close to the weekend so maybe we will just start on Monday. Yeah, Monday sounds good. Oh, Monday is Tina’s birthday? Maybe Tuesday, yeah Tuesday is better.

 

Weight loss will occur when you commit yourself to the process. Not dabbling with weight loss, but having clear, manageable goals that you would like to achieve, a realistic time frame, and a nice (non-food) reward when you accomplish your goals. Maybe save the money from all of the flavored coffees you will pass up and use the money to buy a new piece of clothing you can now fit into.

Stress!!!

Who doesn’t have those days when you feel like you are running all day? From the moment you get up until you collapse into bed, you are on the move and going fast. So those days it is okay to let your eating and exercise slide, right? No! These are the type of days where you need to think ahead. You don’t want to spend your day eating whatever is convenient or skipping your exercise because you just can’t seem to fit it in. These are the days that your resolve must be strong and you say to yourself that you can and will fit a walk in today…even if it is a shorter one than normal.

 

These are the days where you can reach into your healthy stash of quick food that you have on hand, stand at your desk instead of sitting, or practice leg raises or squats while you are talking on the phone. You let stress know that it will not win today, and you will accomplish your goals.

 

Exercising and eating better need to be a priority, not something that you get to whenever you have time. Exercise should be scheduled like a meeting: When it is this day I will be exercising at this time with no excuses. Ever have those days where it doesn’t matter what you want, you will not be able to make a meeting that you had scheduled? Do you just say, oh well, and let it go? No, you reschedule the meeting for a different time of the day. This is what needs to be done with your exercise schedule as well. Car broke down this morning, so the time for a walk was taken by the mechanic? Make some other time during the day to get the exercise done. If you can’t accomplish it all at once, then break up your exercising into ten-minute segments. Surely, there must be ten minutes where you can get some exercise in. When your ten minutes are up then go back to your day and exercise later for ten minutes. Three ten minute exercise periods mean that you made it thirty minutes for the day. Thirty minutes out of twenty-four hours is doable right?

 

The same goes for your Skinny Fiber. Are you taking it consistently? Are you out at a restaurant and it is sitting at home? That won’t work, will it? Do you take it only before you might overeat or do you take it as directed twice a day, thirty minutes before a meal? Are you drinking enough? With Skinny Fiber expanding up to fifty times its size in your stomach, you will need to make sure that you are drinking an adequate amount of fluids.

 

Understanding how you react to stress and planning ahead for the days when plans just fall apart will keep you on track to reach your exercise and weight loss goals. Finally, when life throws you the inevitable curveball, and you know it will, remember this too shall pass so don’t take your focus off your ultimate goal. You will succeed!

Buddy Up!

Isn’t it great when there is something you know you should do, but you don’t want to do it, so you get a friend to help you along and everything gets finished in no time? Then you wonder why you didn’t get started on it sooner. Weight loss can be the same way. Find trusted friends and family and let them know what you are doing. Find an exercise buddy to take a walk or a class with, and maybe someone with whom you can discuss your eating habits.

 

You do need to pick this friend/family member carefully! Ever had a friend jealous of your accomplishments? They seem like they want to be helpful but just end up undermining you. They try talking you out of your exercise class or try to get you to eat something that you are trying to avoid. They say that one won’t hurt you. Then they go on to talk about how you are wasting away and pretty soon you will blow away with the wind, even though you might have lost only one pound of the 20+ you need to lose. These are not the buddies for you.

 

You need to choose someone who understands your goals and is supportive of your efforts. This person will stand in front of you and scream for you to step away from the fridge when the midnight ice cream is calling you. S/He will get you out of bed in the morning when you decide that exercise is overrated and sleeping in is the way to go. S/He will be your cheering section when you accomplish your goals and your confidant when you have set backs.

 

This person can be someone that you actually get together with, or talk to on the phone, or even video call. You can find people on online forums, social networking sites, or specific weight loss sites. You just need to make sure that this person is supportive of you and your efforts. If you are confident in yourself and your goals, you can even start your own networking efforts and let people find you.
