Are you ready to conquer those things on your New Year’s resolutions list once and for all? What has been on your list every year for as long as you can remember and you still haven’t conquered it?  Let me guess …losing weight, exercising more and eating better, right?  You start the year out hard for the first month or so and then you fall back into your old patterns. The year has passed and you have it on your list again the following year. It stops this year.  Let’s cross it off your list for good. Are you ready? Are you willing to do the work?  Grab your pen, yes pen and find a quiet place to focus on these three questions.

  1. Why do you want to lose weight? – Start with the why. Make a list of why you want to lose weight. Take a moment with this. Is it to look good for an upcoming event? Or to reduce your risk of a heart attack?  Your why is very important because it will keep you focused on your outcome.
  1. What have you done in the past to reach your goal? – Look at the steps you did before and figure out if it worked for you.  Stick with the things that worked and drop the things that didn’t. You must do something different if you want different results.
  1. Who do you have for support? – Find yourself a person that can support YOU. It is so important to have that person or people that will be there when you are feeling weak.  Willpower only works when you are willing to do it, but if you have a partner, that person can be strong when you are not.  Teamwork makes the dream work.

By knowing the why, what, and who you are on the path to success.  You can cross those things off your list the following year and replace them with maintaining your weight lost.
