With 2010 fast approaching many of us have probably begun to make preparations to start our resolutions. Again the majority of us probably have our hearts set on losing some of the weight we packed on after all those holiday meals. However, many fail in their weight loss goals for a variety of reasons. However, this year try not to make one large switch in lifestyle, but try to slowly make many little changes.
Most resolutions end up failing within a month of starting. However, try spending that first month just adjusting to your resolution. Each week try to change one or two things in your diet. During the first week you should start by cutting out things like junk food. Cutting out all those sugary foods will be the hardest, but most rewarding step. During the second week try increasing your intake of fruits and vegetables by 1 or 2 servings a day.
Continue this type of cutting back of your unhealthy foods, and increasing the intake of healthy food groups you may not be getting enough of. If you’re able to find some time on a regular basis to exercise then you will definitely start seeing some results of your resolution. However, it won’t be easy and the only way you’ll be able to succeed is if you can stay committed to your goals. If you find it hard to stay focused, try finding someone you know that will keep you on task and will help you throughout the next year.
