How To Stay On Track With Your Weight Loss Goals

 

We hope your 2018 has been off to a wonderful start! Statistically, this is around the time that many people start to struggle with their health and weight loss resolutions, so we are sharing our best tips for staying on track and making this the best year of your life for your health!

 

  • Make changes as gradually as you need to. Often times, cold-turkey resolutions leave you feeling deprived, which always leads to backlash- and in the case of weight loss, more pounds than you started with. Making slow changes can help you keep the weight off.

 

  • Reframe failure. If you fall off the wagon, see it as a learning experience- not a failure- and keep going. You don’t need to wait until 2019 to restart! Progress, not perfection, is your best friend.

 

  • Practice becoming in tune with your emotions. The most common source of weight gain is emotional overeating. If you find yourself eating too much of the wrong foods, don’t beat yourself up or try to force yourself to stop. Instead, relax and recognize your emotions. Do you feel bored? Lonely? Sad? Stressed out? Sometimes, just the act of acknowledging your emotions and feeling heard is enough to curb a binge.

 

  • Notice how your body feels when you eat different foods. When your attention is directed towards all of your senses, and how you feel overall- not just taste- you will find it easier to make better food choices.

 

  • Reframe healthy to equal pleasurable. If you believe that healthful food needs to taste bad or that getting and staying healthy needs to be painful, chances are, you will eventually fail. Health feels wonderful, and healthful food can taste extraordinary. If you are looking for healthful and tasty additions to your diet, try our I Heart Pomegranates tea for circulation, Happy Place tea for mood and digestion, or our Sleek and Slender tea for weight loss. They taste great and have remarkable health benefits.

 

  • Develop accountability. Health goals are so much harder to reach in a vacuum. Find a workout buddy or group of friends with whom you can go hiking or try new activities. This will not only keep you motivated and committed, but will help you to develop a positive association to activities you might otherwise feel disinclined to do.

 

  • Seek help where you need it. Sometimes, weight loss and other goals can feel insurmountable, and achieving them can feel isolating. Remember that you are never alone. There are many resources that can help you! We are here to help as well.

Did you know that there are very few true blue things in nature that are edible? Most blue foods are actually varying shades of purple.
