Do you have a plan for losing weight without quitting? You have to have a plan for when your enthusiasm would wane and you begin to notice that you are no longer eating right and not losing as much weight as you were before. Don't quit.
Please don't do what most people do and quit or begin to look for another diet to start. As long as you have taken time to develop your own strategic individualized plan of action for losing weight and eating right that is based on the holistic approach, VAM eating, and your dimensions of wellness.
Is your approach to weight loss relentless?
Do you know that intention is not enough?
Can you stay focused on what you had in mind when you started your weight loss journey and refuse to quit?
The challenge of relentless weight loss throughout the year does not mean that you will not have any failures or disappointments throughout the day. It means that in spite of daily challenges you will stay focused and refuse to quit.
First, focus on the positive and try to be productive everyday because negative thoughts lead to negative emotions and negative outcomes.
This means you have eat in a way that works for you.
Eat your vegetables as planned.
Eat no bread or very little Pita bread.
Avoid eating food with non-nutrient calories!
Lack of focus on the positive leads to poor management of disruptive circumstances and situations. This can to lead to frustrations, anger and less success with weight loss, unless you make adjustments. You have to remember to stay focused and refuse to quit when the going gets tough. Only relentless focus can help accomplish relentless weight loss.
Focus on a step by step approach. First embrace the concept of holistic weight loss through a deeper understanding of your compass profile, then do your 72-hour food audit. Next use “VAM" eating to manage your daily meals. After you have gained a more realistic picture of how well you can manage your daily meals, this usually takes about a week or two, set realistic goals for your relentless weight loss program. Do not try to accomplish too many things in a day or you will end up getting yourself overwhelmed and disappointed with little or no time for other parts or aspects of your life.
Do not get into the habit of having too many projects up in the air at once. Finish one before you start another. Begin with end in mind also means that you have a plan for completing your projects when you start them. Don’t start your projects with only the hope that you will complete them. Stay focused from the beginning to the end. Write down the day you expect to lose your first 10 pounds after you start. An open –ended weight loss program, discourages completion while promoting lack of focus and delays.
If you truly want to consistently lose weight everyday, you have to refuse to quit after you begin. Too many people begin, then quit before they get the results they desire. You have to be able to strategically put aside your daily disappointments and early failures in your attempts at losing weight. Do not let your daily struggles stop you from focusing on your specific tasks for the day. Be prepared to try your best after the disappointment of the moment or of the hour or of the day. Do you bounce back from adversity everyday? Do you refuse to quit?
Keep in mind that difficult conditions are temporary. Criticisms will pass if you do not keep replaying them in your mind. Frustrations will boil over. Focus on your destinations instead of the bumps or delays along your weight loss journey. Don’t overeat simply because no one seems to appreciate all the effort you have put into losing weight and making yourself more healthy. When things look bleak, you have to remember that you could be on the verge of a breakthrough. Never forget that the darkest part of the night is just before dawn. The harshest part of an argument, criticism or conflict, occurs just before it ends.
Do you have a daily plan for dealing with stress? Sometimes the best thing to do is to remain composed without getting into a disruptive back and forth. Do you eat a balanced diet, exercise regularly, and go to bed on time. Do you build the physical and mental strength to keep going when the going gets tough? Do you refuse to quit when the going gets tough. Do you stay focused?
If you want to stay focused and refuse to quit everyday, you have to learn to stop being too harsh on yourself and learn to love yourself more everyday. Remember not to allow yourself to be distracted by trying to complete too many projects all at once. Finish one project before you start another. Learn from your mistake. Master one aspect of your weight loss plan before try to master a second one. You have to persist to win.
One of the main reasons why people fail after they have started to lose weight is that they are too harsh on themselves. Instead of seeing their short comings as part of the process of growth, they consider them as a confirmation that they can never be successful. You can lose as much weight as you want if you refuse to give up and continue to strive to improve. .
