What are you doing to build commitment to your
weight loss goals?
I want to fit into those jeans that got too tight
It would sure be nice to be at a healthy body
It would be great to have more energy and be able
to keep up with my kids!
I want to lower my blood pressure and cholesterol
These are all great wishes and they will stay
wishes until you take steps to change!
So how do other people do it?
People who reach their weight loss goals
turn their wishes into action by building commitment to their
goals. Building commitment is a skill anyone can learn and
practice - it's what makes successful people successful while the
rest of us dream.
The call to action is different for everyone: for some
people it's enough to step on a scale and realize that they have
gained five pounds and for others it takes a heart attack before
they start a serious weight loss plan. And some people will
never take the steps to change their weight gain habits. Once
you've decided that it's time to "do
something" about your weight build on
your reasons for losing. Remind yourself of the benefits.
Remember what it felt like to look and feel your best - realize
that it is possible to get that feeling back!
Real weight loss happens when you've reached your goal weight
and you've maintained the habits that will keep your weight off,
so think about changing your habits rather than going on a diet.
This can be a big project that seems overwhelming so start building commitment by focusing on a few small
habits that you can change right away that will lead you closer
to your weight and health goals. Here are some key ways that
Personal Diets helps you build commitment to your personal
for making small changes rather than an "all or nothing"

instead it gives you the tools you need to build a new way of
eating that works over your lifetime.

all people, so it needs to be flexible and adaptable within the
context of eating well for good health.
It helps you build commitment over time by giving you
weekly goals that you can focus on to make your diet more
It's easier to stay committed to your diet and
exercise plan when it works and gives you results. That's why we
use flexible and personal diet plans, incorporate small, weekly
changes that you can really focus on, and incorporate tracking
tools - essential tools that have proven most effective in
helping people reach their health and diet goals.
