When we make a big difference to our life and changes in our routines, we expect results right away. Your ability to lose weight isn’t an all-or-nothing deal. It’s a process. For many it can take weeks, others it can take months before there are noticeable changes. This means we need to exercise more, eat better and sleep well to optimise our results. Not everyone can be self motivated to do this on their own which can make the process exhausting and demotivating.
Try not to focus solely on the specific result you’re looking for. When you worry about not seeing certain numerical successes, you don’t appreciate the positive impacts you’re making on your body’s overall health. If you start small and focus on bite-size changes you can make day by day, you will get results. When you start this way, you’ll be more likely to stick to habit changes because they won’t feel so overwhelming. With my clients, I identify past experiences, current habits, work, stress and so much more. This is mostly done through conversations and questionnaires. This allows me to learn more about the individual to decide exactly what will work and what wont. For example, if you struggle to eat breakfast in the morning, I can send you daily reminders to show you the benefits of what a nutritional breakfast can do for you. If you generally don’t sleep well I can give you tasks to score how well you have slept the night before. If you scored poorly I can give you some tips to help. If you scored well I will give you praise and encouragement which will make you feel more confident and motivated to make it a habit. The point being that it’s not only about workouts and food, it’s about your health and well being as a whole. The most important thing for me is that you can open up and communicate your thoughts. This allows for me to set you up in a way that will not only maximise your results, but so that you can create good habits that you can stick to long term.
