Reasons’ why you are not loosing weight

Reasons may vary from person to person, many at times people don’t realize how our actions and daily habits are tied to our weights and size. We keep lamenting and complaining hence we are mere sayers and not doers.

Goodness

We can receive our mind by having a mindset shift by focusing on the target and doing the doable, visualizing our end and results and consistently working our way towards achieving it. It may be painful but the end justifies the mean.

Getting that great body Picture

Setting Goals

Many at times we set goals wrongly, setting the right goals wrongly will definitely smash our efforts. Goals should be SMART

Specific: Your goals must be very clear and unambiguous, think about it. Give yourself some time to be sure of what you really want to achieve e.g I want to be a size to be sure that size is what you desire.

Measurable: Can it be tracked, does it follow a severe, and can it be monitored, does it have steps, at every stage for their goals

Achievable: Is it something that is possible, goals can be achieved in a lung on short term, priorities should not be misplaced. Long term goals should not be fated as at short term and vice versa.

Realistic: Are you goals achievable within the set time, you must set goals that match or is commensurate with the resources & material you have or made available to go or with your body system.

Time bound: Timing is very important in everything we do.

Lasting Doable by You

One can set goals that see possible but not double by the individual involved you goals must be in line with you.

  • Life
  • Body
  • Reality
  • Mind

That miss A dropped from size 16-sizze 10 in 2 minutes doesn’t mean you can achieve same within the same time frame, it may take. You longer. That’s is reason why you must first understand your body.

An individual with inherited fat gene cells will not loose weights at same pace with one who is one the sum side. They can achieve same target  but with different time frame and different resources and activities.

The state of mind also have a key note to play, someone in a stable emotional state may loose weight faster than some are going through emotional troubles and vice versa also a first time mum with faming around her to help out is less over whelms than a mom of 4 kids who have lots to meet up with.

The Goal Proper

Why do you want o loose weight?

  1. Think about this and fill out your reasons in a sheet of paper,
  2. List as many as you can think of then pick out the priority.

Then categorize these goals into long term medium term and short term goals.

  • Long term goals – 2-3 years achievable e.g. want to feel lighter
  • Medium term – 1 year drop 3 dress sizes
  • Short term – 1-2 months drop a dress size

On the average people who key into my fitness program loose 4-8 kg between 2 weeks and 1 month then loose up to 15-20kg if a repeat is done.

Ready to success

Now that you are done setting your goals, it’s important you give yourself if the best chance of achieving them. May have tried to loose weight but fail. I want you to make a list of any reasons you feel might have made your attempts to loose weight unsuccessful or any reason you feel may disrupt your weight loss proceeds

It is important to pass in certain information to your subconscious telling  it “loosing weight is safe” and it is – for a healthy body on a paper or note work unite down your top 3 reasons you want to lose weight. Keep this paper close to your bed, every morning after prayers go through your goals and every night before bed time review you actions for the day to see if may care in line with your goals. Keep your reasons and goals close to heart so as to constantly motivates.
