Know that your BEST goal and your plan to achieve it are not set in stone. You may need to revise your plan as you go and that’s okay.
Life doesn’t always go as planned. You may run into unexpected obstacles that throw you off track. Learn from the experience and continue your journey. Your journey isn’t about perfection. You’re not perfect and you don’t live in a perfect world.
At the end of each week’s deadline, look back and answer the questions below.
Always focus on the positives first. Congratulate yourself for each success, no matter how small. Typically we forget what we have accomplished and instead we focus on what we didn’t do.
Use the information from your weekly reflection to set your next BEST goal and develop a plan to achieve it. It’s okay to set the same goal next week, to change your goal, or to add another small change.
Only you know what is realistic for you. Just remember, any change you make must become a permanent change in order to achieve permanent weight loss.
