Weight Loss: How to Get Started on the Road to Success
With spring right around the corner and resolution in full swing, it’s time to put your weight loss efforts on full throttle. If you’ve been struggling to lose weight on your own in January but aren’t ready to give up on your efforts yet, here are a few ways to get back on track and see real success when it comes to weight loss.
Talk to a registered Nutrition Specialist
Start by talking to a registered nutrition specialist, so they can give you expert guidance to help you select the plan that is most suited for you. Often, we enlist friends to help us during this time, and while they can be a great support system, they won’t have the experience and training required to provide you with a comprehensive plan that promotes both weight loss and health. A registered nutrition specialist also gives you a difference sense of accountability and support than a friend does because they are professionally helping you to lose weight.
Choose a plan
Laser Skin & Wellness has multiple weight loss programs, from the HCG diet to detox plans, for you to select from. Each plan is customized to your individual needs, and you’ll be guided by a nutrition specialist to ensure the diet and exercise routine is safe and effective for you. If you’ve ever tried to diet in the past, you know how important it is to have a plan in place before you get started to improve your success rate.
Create a motivational strategy
It can be easy to feel gung-ho at the beginning of a diet, but so many of us fall victim to our own lack of motivation as we get more involved. Pay attention to those moments when you feel the least amount of motivation and create a strategy. It can be a song played loud that gets you pumped up, a mantra that resonates with you, or a ten-minute meditation that allows the cravings and emotions associated with them to pass.
Reward yourself for a job well done
You should always reward yourself for a job well done, even if it’s just for a mini-goal like losing that first pound. Treat yourself to a skin care treatment or a new dress, but never reward yourself with food! Little rewards like a new book, having a (healthy) lunch with a friend, or a pair of earrings gives you something to look forward to and can serve as a constant reminder of your successes.
