Three things you can do now to achieve your ideal weight
By Melonie Dodaro
Make healthy choices: When you’re hungry, make a healthy choice. Healthy food can be delicious, and it provides you with the energy you need for your day. On occasion, when something healthy doesn’t satisfy you, choose a small portion of the food you feel you need to eat. Use the four-bite rule. The memory of the taste of food peaks after four bites, so stop eating then. It isn’t going to taste better if you continue to eat more.
Stay focused on your ideal weight: Achieving a new and healthy life might not be easy at first, but it will be one of the most rewarding gifts you ever give yourself. You deserve to have and be anything your mind can create, in all areas of your life. Today is your chance to focus and look for what is rightfully yours.
Keep a record: When you recognize the emotion that has caused you to overeat, make a note in your journal or even make a separate section for “Triggers.” After a while, you’ll notice a pattern will surface that allows you to avoid those situations or learn how to better manage them.
Here are some questions to ask yourself. Write down your detailed answers in your journal.
1. What will your life be like when you reach your ideal weight?
2. How will the quality of your life change once you reach your goal?
3. What will this mean for you and your family?
4. How will your confidence and belief in yourself change?
Pay attention to your answers and let go of anything holding you back. Remember to focus on the image in your mind of you at your ideal weight; feel a smile on your face and a sense of accomplishment in your heart.
