Why New Year's Resolutions Fail (and Why Your's will Succeed!)
December 29, 2015
Did you know that over 88% of New Year's Resolutions fail? Here are some of the top four reasons why, along with how you can be among the 12% that turn your weight loss resolution into a success story.
You treat a marathon like a sprint.
Making dramatic lifestlye changes take time! Don't do a dramatic crash diet or expect to lose all your holiday weight in a couple of weeks. Set realistic goals and understand that a slow and steady approach is not only the best way to keep your weight off, but is the healthiest approach to weight loss.
You know WHAT you want to change, but not WHY.
You know that you want to lose weight and change your diet, but what motivates you? Do you want to be a positive role model for your children? Are you trying to control an illness, like diabetes? No matter what the reason, make sure you know WHY you want to change your life. This WHY will motivate you when you feel like quiting and the "New Year's Resolution Rush" has faded into spring.
You don't track your progress.
Keep a log of your weight loss and exercise. Tracking your progress allows you to celebrate small victories and milestones and keeps you motivated. Are you a member of a weight loss program or a patient at our clinic? Make sure to come in for your weigh-in and we'll track your progress for you!
You go at it alone.
Studies show that social support and accountability is one of the most important factors in weight loss success and goal attainment. Announce your goals to a friend or family member or embark upon the journey of change together. Better yet, come for a free consultation at our weight loss clinic in florence, sc and we'll help you set goals, track your progress, and make sure you're successful.
