We know how it is. The road to wellbeing is paved with good intentions. We just sometimes get sidetracked by the pretty little back streets.
As Vince Lombardi said, NFL Champion Head Coach ““It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up.”
So how do we do that?
Remember your ‘why’
A key one, this is your unique motivator. Why did you decide to lose weight / get fitter and healthier?
Do you have an occasion coming up you’d like to feel more able to face? A favourite dress or suit you’d like to slide back into?
Maybe you have a health issue you’d like to resolve. As the Lancet told us, there is certainly a growing number of healthy people who’ve now reversed their Type 2 Diabetes as a result of losing weight.
Keeping the reason in mind you decided to take this journey will help you pick yourself up, dust yourself off and resume all over again. We won’t say ‘start’ because, the chances are, you’ve kept some of your initial weight loss off.
So get back on that horse!
Use your coach
Some people do well on their journey alone. Many others need some support.
This can be especially helpful when you’ve slid a little down that slippery slope.
A coach can help you get back on track. They’re used in all walks of life and not just in journeys to better health and wellbeing. We know top executives and athletes use them. The good news is that more affordable individuals are widely available for your more average Joe.
Including Practically Slim coaches who provide inspiration and support at every weekly group meeting.
We don’t focus on blame. We look at what motivates you. We aim to inspire you and to lift your life in so many ways.
If there were a quick fix back to a BMI of 25 or below, we’d be the first to wave our magic wand.
But we all know we’re in it for the long haul. Support from a friendly human who understands how you feel can make all the difference to your success.
If this rings your bell, why not contact us today and let us help you get back on that bandwagon? We’re here for you, to help you lose your weight your way.
