5 Steps for Successful Weight Management

(Thanks to the owner of this photo via Mr. Google)

I was looking for some stuff in my drawer when I dug up Vitamin World's pamphlets. I got them when I signed up for membership two years ago.

I find them very interesting so I thought to share them here.

5 Steps for Successful Weight Management:

1. Evaluate where you are.
A common mistake people make when embarking on a weight management program is setting a goal before taking an assessment of where they are starting from. This leads to unrealistic goals and is a recipe for almost certain failure

2. Set more than one goal.
Set a REALISTIC overall goal, and several intermediate goals that fill the space between where you are and where you want to be.

3. Tell everybody what you are doing.
Accountability and cheerleading section are wonderful things.

4. Dont be too hard on yourself.
Remember that you are only human,and that you are doing something that takes determination.

5. Reward yourself.
Reward yourself with a pat on the back every time you reach a goal, maybe in a form of of a long look at yourself in the mirror followed by a big smile, or a new outfit that shows off your new shape!

I gained 9 lbs. after my trip to the Philippines. My normal weight was 125lbs and it went up to 134 lbs. I panicked so I've been watching my diet since then by eating brown rice, fish, veggies, fruits and very small portion of meat only. Also, I go brisk walking every afternoon amidst chilliness since winter is already approaching.

I haven't weighed myself lately but I know I lost a lot of weight already because I can wear my old pants again. Thank you Lord.
