Your New Year's Weight Loss Resolution
Many people make New Year's resolutions each year, and many of those resolutions involve weight-loss and fitness. After overeating during the holidays, a New Year's resolution to lose weight and become more physically fit is the obvious choice, but unfortunately, a great number of those who make a New Year's resolution to lose weight give up before the end of the month.
Make this year the year that you stick to your New Year's resolution and succeed. The key to keeping your New Year's resolution is making a resolution that is reasonable and achievable, and by following a few simple steps, your New Year's resolution will be a big success. Get started today on achieving success in the year to come by changing your eating and exercise habits. It's your resolution, and you really have nothing to lose other than excess pounds.
Choosing Your Objective
Don't sabotage yourself by choosing a New Year's resolution that's nearly impossible to keep. When considering a weight-loss goal, remember that losing between one and two pounds a week is a healthy and reasonable amount of weight to lose. If you have fifty pounds to lose, it wouldn't be sensible or safe to make a New Year's resolution to lose the weight by spring, but you could easily and safely lose the weight by summer. Carefully consider your weight-loss objective before making your New Years resolution so you actually have a chance to succeed.
Rethinking Your Strategy
If you find yourself struggling with dieting, don't give up on your New Year's resolution. Rethink your strategy and alter your resolution. Maybe it wasn't as reasonable as you originally thought, or maybe your circumstances have changed. Take everything into consideration and give it another go. There isn't anything wrong with changing the rules in the middle of this game. Your New Year's resolution is a promise to yourself, and you can change it to meet your preferences and your lifestyle at any point you desire.
Be True to Yourself
Although it's perfectly acceptable to change your resolution at any point, it isn't acceptable to give up altogether. If at any point after New Year's you consider throwing in the towel and giving up on your resolution, think again. Stop and consider why you made the resolution in the first place. You wanted to look better and feel better by dropping a set number of pounds, and even if you don't reach your original goal, you will be able to say you tried. You have all year to achieve your objective, and even if you wanted to lose fifty pounds and only lose ten pounds total, you will still be much better off than you were when you made your original New Year's resolution.
