#1 Today is the chance to change yourself for the better.
Too often we procrastinate and put off until tomorrow (or Monday!) what we could do today. Once you’ve made the decision to lose some weight, why delay? Today really is your chance to change things for the better.
#2 Six months from now, you’ll wish you started today.
Not only is today your chance to change, but in 6 months time you’ll be so glad you did! Put it off another week or even two and in 6 months you may well be kicking yourself for not having started sooner. We don’t want you to kick yourself, so find out how easy it is to get started now!
#3 I’m not dieting, I’m changing my way of eating for life.
Short term diets may yield results initially, but more often than not the weight piles back on – sometimes with reinforcements! The key to losing weight and keeping it off is in finding a way of eating for life which suits you. The small amount of effort to restrict your intake on a part time basis with intermittent fasting is more sustainable in the long term than continually feeling deprived as with more traditional weight loss plans.
#4 At first they’ll ask you why you’re doing it. Later they’ll ask you how you did it.
Although fasting is gradually becoming more mainstream as a method of improving health and losing weight, it’s a sad but true fact that there are still a great many who don’t understand this way of eating and make wrong assumptions about it. At first there may be people who wonder why on earth you’re ‘starving yourself’ – but when they see just how well you’re doing and that you haven’t keeled over from ‘starvation’ they really will want to know more!
#5 The best way to get started is to stop talking and start doing.
True of so many things in life, it’s very easy to say you’re going to do something – even to find out all about it – but quite another to actually buckle down and do it. Talking about doing it achieves nothing – actions speak louder than words – so just get started and let the results speak for themselves!
#6 Do something today that your future self will thank you for.
As we get older it seems increasingly difficult to lose weight the aging process often seems to go hand in hand with a decline in health. The benefits of fasting extend far beyond weight loss (although that in itself comes with a great many health benefits). Start soon and make it the habit of a lifetime, you’ll be glad you did.
#7 If it’s important to you, you’ll find a way. If it is not, you’ll find an excuse.
“I can’t start today because…”
“I can never lose any weight because…”
“I don’t have time to…”
Sound familiar? Choosing to start a weight loss journey is something which really needs to be important to you if you want to stick to it. We can always find excuses to not do something, but when you really, truly want to do it then you will find a way.
#8 Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.
‘You have to be in it to win it’, so the saying goes. You never know what you might achieve until you decide to try!
#9 Don’t compare your beginning to someone else’s middle.
The only thing that should matter to you on your weight loss journey is how you are doing – we are all unique and so are our journeys. Focus on your own results rather than what others around you have achieved, there’s no need for jealousy or comparison.
