You might be someone who has a desire to lose weight, but you have not quite managed to do that yet. Maybe you have 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 have reached your goal weight.
Watch the video below to learn about how your life will change once you have reached your goal of losing weight. We also have our mega-post on dieting here. There is a list of our recommendations under the video to keep you healthy and happy!
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 not 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 will be able to visit amusement parks and walk around all day. You will 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 bread and calorie-laden gravies or sauces, you switch to lite bread and make your gravies without all the heavy creams and butter. But that does not mean that you must give up all your favorites and have meals that are lacking taste, either.
You will 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 do not leave you satisfied.
When you get the weight off, you will be able to do things you never thought possible. This might be something like joining a swim competition or taking up surfing. You will be able to do the things that you want to do as well as try out new adventures.
You will not feel like you are struggling just to keep up with other people. Plus you will gain confidence and boost your self-esteem.
Take a moment to imagine that you are 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.
