Let’s Make a Change
Did you make a New Year’s Resolution to lose weight this year? If so, did you stick to it? That’s okay. In fact, most people don’t stick to their New Year’s Resolution. That doesn’t make you a bad person, it just means that something needs to change. How so, you ask? Start your resolution early! Here are three reasons why you should start your weight loss resolution now.
1. You’ll Have Time To Make a Plan
By starting early, you will have enough time to make a plan. You can find a trainer, sit down for a consultation, and come up with a plan that will work for you. One reason why people don’t stick to their resolution is because they don’t have the right plan in place. What do you want to achieve? How many calories do you burn? How many calories should you eat? Should you exercise every day? These are all questions that need to be answered in your plan.
The best goals are S.M.A.R.T goals; Specific, Measureable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely. Your goal needs to be specific and measureable, such as a particular body fat percentage that you want to achieve. In addition, it should be attainable and realistic for your body and your lifestyle. You should also give yourself a timeline and goal date to work towards. By making SMART goals, it will be easier to stay on track.
2. You Can Get a Head Start
Start your weight loss resolution early to get a head start. If you know you want it and it is important to you, why wait another month? There will always be an excuse to wait. Don’t let these excuses stop you. Haven’t you spent enough time waiting already? There’s no better day than today to start your weight loss goal.
3. You Can Build Lasting Habits
By starting early, you will have time to build the habits that will ensure success. As you probably know, habits aren’t instant. They don’t sink in the moment that you start. Until your new lifestyle becomes a habit, it will be something that you are going to have to work on everyday. So, why wait to start building new habits? If you start today, you will have an extra month under your belt. This will help you to be more successful in the long run.
Why wait to make a change? By starting today, you will have enough time to make a plan and get a head start on your goals. Finally, by starting now, you can build the habits that will lead to a lasting change. Make this the year where you really achieve your weight loss resolution. Talk to a trainer today to get started!
