You might be someone who has a desire to lose weight, but you haven’t quite managed to do that yet. Maybe you’ve struggled in one particular area or several when it comes to shedding pounds.
What might help you is to imagine how your life will change once you do lose the weight. The person that you are now with the weight struggles that you have now will change as you start to lose and again when you’ve reached your goal weight.
The important thing is that you do get started and you do picture what your life is going to look like then. You might be someone how who struggles just to get up off the sofa. You can’t even consider climbing up a flight of stairs.
But through making healthier choices with your food, moving more and the support of others, you can find the willpower to change. You can go from sitting on the sofa to walking – from walking to jogging, from jogging to running.
You can have adventures with your new weight that your old weight held you back from being able to do. You’ll be able to visit amusement parks and walk around all day. You’ll be able to compete in sporting events or walking or running for a good cause.
You’ll be able to go on hikes up steep trails or climb mountains. The changes that you make don’t have to be ones where you’re eating weird foods or starving yourself. You simply make wiser decisions when it comes to what you put into your body.
Instead of having heavy breads and calorie laden gravies or sauces, you switch to lite bread and make your gravies without all the heavy creams and butter. But that doesn’t mean that you must give up all your favourites and have meals that are lacking taste, either.
You’ll just make easy changes. You can eat the foods that you like just by changing the focus from the ones that fill you up for longer periods and are better for you from the ones that don’t leave you satisfied.
When you get the weight off, you’ll be able to do things you never thought possible. This might be something like joining a swim competition or taking up surfing. You’ll be able to do the things that you want to do as well as try out new adventures.
You won’t feel like you’re struggling just to keep up with other people. Plus you’ll gain confidence and boost your self-esteem. Take a moment to imagine that you’re not limited in any way by your weight. Then take the steps to make that picture in your mind a reality. Today is your day to begin a life without limits.
