How do I keep my new year’s resolution to lose weight?
One way that you can keep your resolutions to lose weight is to focus on the goals that you can control. “Life” will always get in the way, so to reduce the impact of life happening, it’s easier to set goals around things we can control. For example, instead of saying I will than lose 5kg by Easter, your goal could be to:
• Move your body every day for a week, and then 2 weeks, then 28 days, then 2 months etc…
• No drinking alcohol through the week;
• Swapping your soft drink for water
These small changes WILL all add up.
