3 Simple Changes For Sustainable Weight Loss ⚖️

When the obvious doesn't work time and time again, it's time to look at the bigger picture 🖼️

Especially when it comes to weight loss.

The common hit-it-hard approach to weight loss often means relying heavily on self-control, changing everything at once and obsessing about what the scales say.

Sure - you'll likely get results but at what cost? And for how long?

For sustainable weight loss and lifestyle changes, you need to do less and refocus.

Here are 3 effective ways to switch your mindset:

Focus On Self-Awareness | Self-awareness is the ability to focus on yourself and how your actions, thoughts, or emotions align with your values. By taking a step back and becoming more aware as to WHY you are self-sabotaging when it comes to your eating habits, you can start to change those actions to align with your goals rather than trying to rely on self-control in difficult situations.

Make Small Changes | Many of us are guilty of the 'all or nothing' approach when trying to lose weight. We start eating salads everyday, cut out the junk food and hit the gym 5 x a week. But for most of us, this hard-hitting approach is only sustainable for a short period of time as you're relying on motivation alone. Start small and build on this small change each week. You'll feel more motivated to keep going as you're able to stick to your smaller goals and more likely to keep the weight off.

Focus On Your Behaviours, Not Outcomes | It's easy to obsess about what the scales say or how your clothes fit but rather than focus on the OUTCOME you want, direct your focus towards changing your behaviours to affect that outcome.

A desired weight or size in mind is great but it doesn't tell you WHAT to do to get there. Setting behaviour goals such as walk for 10mins a day, or eat veggies with every meal, gives you a plan of action.
