What direction are we going in today?
The gradual approach to body fat loss
The best way in my personal opinion, and from my personal experience, to reach your ideal weight loss goal or ideal body fat % goal is to lose a little each week, each month.
Honestly, the slower... the more gradual... the better!
The easiest way and most lasting way is achieved with small and simple adjustments in your everyday habits. The clincher is the effort to sustain those small changes when your resistance comes. Sounds so simple but of course even making 1 or 2 small changes to what you do daily is very difficult in it's own way!
Truth is you can reach the weight you want and not suffer through the journey and yep! still enjoy plenty of treats along the way :-)
Have we created some motivation today? Will we tomorrow?
No need to spent hundreds of pounds on some super-duper diet. No need to sign up to expensive gym classes. Of course there is also nothing wrong with that and it may suit you but it can be just as easily done without spending a penny extra!
If you can make the small daily changes and do this for 6 months in a row you'll see results.
3 Concrete steps to succesful weight loss
- Find out the cold hard facts and write them down. What is your body fat %? What is your weight? What weight do you want to be? How far have you got to go? If you were to lose 4kg a month how long would it take? Make it all feel real.
- Set your goals. write them down. You can use one of the goal setting worksheets to assist you when you write it down. If you are fit and healthy and have plenty of free time you can set a large goal that puts the pressure on. Be flexible. Adjust to suit you. Try and select your goal with self-compassion. Find that combination of appropriate level of challenge and also self-respect and self-kindness.
- Keep Going. Sometimes in life you may face huge unexpected difficulties and you may be able to do very little towards your goals. You may need to focus your attention on other things for a while. As long as you keep going. Through everything. Adjusting. Getting back up time and time again. Even with multiple breaks. Even if you can't devote the time right now that you'd like to as long as you don't forget... You'll get there.
