“Clarity comes from knowing what you want and from moving in the direction of it.” ~Sue Krebs
Gain a crystal clear picture of what you want. Your goals should be specific, measurable, and have a time frame.
Write your goals down and keep a journal so that you have a way to track progress. Getting your goals out of our head and down on paper allows them to become real, concrete, and tangible.
Give yourself a reasonable time frame to achieve your goal then break it down into baby steps. I will explain this in further detail in part five.
Schedule an appointment with your doctor. Share your weight loss goals and get his/her opinion. This is a good way to ensure that the number of pounds you plan to lose per week is reasonable for your body type. Work with your doctor on creating a nutrition plan and a workout regimen.
Create an action plan. This plan will include your workout schedule. Put your plan on a weekly calendar. Example: 30 minutes of cardio Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. 30 minutes of resistance training Tuesday and Thursday.
Integrate hypnotherapy into your action plan. I like to see my clients once a week for a minimum of six weeks but every situation is different. Schedule a consultation appointment to see what hypnotherapy plan would work best for you. I offer free consultations.
Celebrate each milestone. Even small accomplishments such becoming 2 lbs closer to your goal weight.
Visualize success. See yourself as having already accomplished your goal. How does it feel to finally be comfortable in your own skin? What clothes would you were? How to people react when the see you? Practice doing visualization exercises everyday for 10-15 minutes. See yourself not only succeeding in your goal, but over coming obstacles to get to your goal as well. This will enable you to anticipate the inevitable road bumps and work through them with perseverance.
