Baby Steps to Weight Loss

I really hope you've been following along with our "Easy To Do's" checklist for the past week. So many of our readers have found these tips to be so incredibly helpful and have even told me that they've printed the checklist out and posted it on their refrigerator. Awesome!

Today I’m going to give you a super important one (yes, I know, I keep saying how important every single one is), but I think this particular "To Do" can actually be the sole reason people either succeed or don't succeed on any fat loss plan.

So #9 is...

Approach your weight loss strategy in baby steps.

Weight Loss

I understand that you want your unwanted weight to come off as fast as humanly possible. Yes, I totally get it, but most people completely abandon their new fat loss strategy because they overwhelm themselves with too many changes all at once. That's just not reasonable and not realistic for most people.

My own weight loss journey was one of consistent trial and error. Thankfully, I was able to learn, and now pass on to you, the eating principles that helped me shed off those pesky 30 pounds and keep them off...permanently!

Here is exactly what I suggest you do when embarking on this wonderful journey of health and weight loss:

1. Read through your Beyond Diet Manual and Quick Start Guide and make a list of the 10 action steps that you think would help you the most. Many times you are already doing some of them, but not doing others. Make that list personal to you and your lifestyle and what would be the most helpful to you at this time.

List of Action Steps

2. Next, divide that list into 4 or 5 parts so you can tackle 2-3 action items at a time. For example, you may want to start with reducing sugar and drinking more water and not worry about anything else until those 2 items have become a more regular routine for you. Can you imagine how greatly your health would change and how much weight you could lose by just implementing those 2 items alone?

3. Continue to go through your list at a pace that is doable and works well for you. I'll say it again...many people abandon their weight loss efforts because they try to take on too much at once, which only leads to frustration. Wouldn't it be better to take it slow, have the weight come off...and then have it STAY OFF?

Remember that losing weight is not an "All or Nothing" game. Just because you need to approach this at your own pace and in your own way does not mean you will not be successful. I have seen many people not continue on a perfectly healthy eating regimen that was working just because they felt they were not being "perfect."

Trust me, I'm not "perfect," but I do the best I can each and every day and I know that will not only keep me healthy, but will also keep me from driving myself crazy.

Review the first 9 Fat Loss To Do’s and see where you can improve or implement those into your life. Stay tuned for #10!
