Summer 2017 Healthy Living Tip

Posted: July 30, 2017 in Healthy Living

One of the hardest parts of healthy living is “sticking with it”.  Many times, we succeed at major weight loss but then fall back into our old habits and routines, regaining much of the weight we worked so hard to lose.  Here are just a few tips to help you stay on track with healthier living.

  • It’s a lifestyle, not a diet – Don’t treat eating healthy as a “diet”.  Dieting makes it seem like a chore and you are less likely to stay on track.  Living and eating healthy really is about changing your mindset and moving to a new lifestyle of making better choices about the foods we eat and the activities we participate in.
  • Have a positive attitude – Dreading the gym or going on a walk isn’t going to help.  Think of your exercise time as a chance to break away from your day to day stresses and relax your mind.  Look at your times of exercise as relaxation, not a chore.
  • Rely on and encourage others – Support groups are a great way to help keep you on track and your healthy choices may also lead to a lifestyle change for others.  One of the greatest rewards of my losing 100 lbs was one of my coworkers at our Dallas office also doing the same after he saw me!
