Imagine you are at your dream weight. You reached it. You feel good in your clothes. Maybe you finally fit into a pair of jeans you haven’t worn in years. Your confidence is soaring and you aren’t embarrassed anymore. No more squeezing into uncomfortably small seats. Potential mates are paying you more attention. You can see your toes when you look down. You actually take off your swimsuit cover. Overall, you feel better than you have in years.
Then what? How will you maintain it?
In my conversations with people about good nutrition, I’ve heard a variety of interpretations of what it means to eat real food. Many people are uncertain about the best way to determine if food is real or not.
So how do we erase confusion about real food? Let me answer a few of the questions people most commonly ask me.
Forming the habits necessary for reaching wellness goals can feel just as frustrating as an overly complex or poorly written recipe. When people feel overwhelmed by the steps required to reach their goals, they often give up, sometimes even before they start.
But I’m here to tell you, you can achieve the wellness you want. And the best way to be successful is to create your own recipe steps - habits - to get the life and freedom you desire.
Here are my 5 secrets for forming healthy habits…
I gained 6 pounds.
I knew I had gained some weight but was quite surprised when I saw it was as much as 6 pounds. I don’t like using the scale as an accountability tool. Too many factors - especially with women - can affect what the scale says and it can be a liar in my opinion. My best accountability is how my body looks and clothes fit… especially jeans - they are truth tellers. Right? So the scale was an eye opener not an accountability tool. It confirmed what I saw had happened.
So why did this happen? What changed over the last month to cause me to gain weight?
The path to ultimate health and wellness is quite the journey. Most individuals desire to be in better health. Many try different measures to achieve it but often success seems unachievable.
As unachievable as it may feel at times, success is possible if we follow the path of progression.
Let’s look at some common paths our wellness journeys travel as they relate to time and the approach we take.
