Any new adventure takes planning. How much time do you invest in planning your vacation or a buying a new home? I would bet you don't even put a quarter of that time into planning your new lifestyle of health. How can you be successful without looking at and truly analyzing your barriers to progress. You pack "in case it rains" clothes for a vacation, but you don't pack "in case I have to eat on the run" snacks in your weight loss journey. Or you simply didn't think it through at all before you decided that today is the day to drink green smoothies for a week, but hate vegetables.
Appropriate planning and confident planning ensures success. You have to learn to trust yourself and push yourself to keep focus on the goal. After a long day, it can feel overwhelming to think about planning your meals for the next day. It would just be easier to go to the drive-thru of your favorite fast food establishment than to worry about it. But guess who wins? Food, again. You are in control, you are strong and you can win the battle if you harness your strengths and focus on your motivation. Small steps to start that result in big results in the end. Stop the weight loss battle once and for all by saying you are worth the time of planning how you are going to become that vision in your head. You are worth it!
