Saying yes could change your life for the better and help make your weight loss goals a reality.
Yes is a magical word that has such a positive impact. Just saying yes makes you feel better and makes you smile, and when you smile the whole world smiles with you!
Saying yes can sometimes make us fear failure. We anticipate the worst as we don’t know what to expect, we are creatures of habit and it feels safe to stay in our comfort zone. It is true that any new experience or fresh ideas can be scary, but it’s not about being reckless or becoming a people pleaser. Instead it’s about becoming true to ourselves and saying yes to all the good stuff, enjoying the positive changes that will happen.
Say Yes to a slimmer and healthier future!
List your motivational reasons for losing weight; are you wanting to run around with the kids/grandkids, wear a special item of clothing, go on holiday and feel comfortable in your clothes, have a photo taken without hiding from it, have an adventure day? If there is a picture that inspires you, stick it on the fridge. Tell yourself that you are not depriving yourself of a treat but choosing healthier options to enable you to become slimmer and healthier.
Say Yes to little victories!
Embrace all of your victories by setting mini goals to help you achieve your ultimate goal of becoming slimmer and healthier. This will help to inspire and motivate you and remind you of how fabulous you are doing on your weight loss journey. Here are some I have witnessed from our members over the years; to be able to fly on an aeroplane without a seatbelt extender, painting my toenails, my blood pressure has dropped, I am no longer T2 diabetic, and I can wear my wedding bands again. These are all significant milestones to be celebrated, so don’t forget to include them in your list of Non Scale Victories.
Say Yes to getting support!
When you start a new diet you can get a mixed reaction from family and friends, make them aware that you are in the process of making changes and that you will need some encouragement. You may find that some of your friends are uncomfortable as they may prefer your old habits and not fully embrace the new emerging you, but once they see how happy these changes are making you, they will get on board and have your back! Use the support networks that we have in place for you. Our Facebook closed groups are ideal and hugely important as you will be with other like minded people who are wanting to be slimmer and healthier. It’s a great place to share recipes, tips and support. Don’t forget about our Live Chat too if you need an extra boost of encouragement, or are a little shy in asking a question in the groups.
Once you get into the habit of saying yes it can transform all areas of your life, make you believe in your abilities and boost your confidence. So what are you going to say the next time you question yourself?
