Wanting to lose weight, is not the same as doing it!
Why start something tomorrow, when you could just start now?
If you can’t be bothered now, how will you feel when you are even more overweight and perhaps in the future suffering from health problems as a result of it? There may be a time in the future, if you don’t deal with your weight now, when you won’t even have a choice about bothering, as you will “have” to deal with it.
There is no reason to procrastinate about losing weight. Stop putting it off and take action now. (Look at my previous posts about how to get started and make your plan, set your goals and start moving towards them! (Remember it’s not long until Summer).
Putting this off in the long run will only potentially make things worse. Just imagine how much better you will feel when you are taking action, eating healthier, feeling slimmer and fitter and able to wear smaller sized clothes again so that you can look and feel good about yourself.
5 Tips to Stop Procrastinating with your Weight loss
- Set short term weight loss goals – to get you motivated to start now. Did you want to wear something nice to that party in 3 weeks time ( you could safely lose at least 3 pounds in 3 weeks! and even up to 6 pounds if you put your mind to it)
- Set some long term weight loss goals – what would you like to weigh, look like, and feel like by the end of the year?
- Spend 30 minutes now planning what you are going to eat next week. Plan your meals and your shopping list. (This will save time and money too)
- Plan in at least two exercise spots next week- these don’t have to be massive, you could for example decide to walk the school run every day or go to a zumba class and take the dog out for a walk one afternoon, or you could decide to go for a walk in your lunch hour twice a week, or go for a swim. Whatever you fancy that gets you moving more.
- Enlist support – join a class, engage a weight loss hypnotherapist like me to work with you, to support and show you effective ways to lose and maintain weight loss, ask a friend or your partner to help you. You don’t have to do this on your own and if you are someone who likes to be accountable, this can really help to motivate you.
