How to STOP Self-Sabotage!

Listen to yourself and notice any self-doubting. Why do you do stop yourself from reaching your dreams and goals? What are you afraid of? Do you feel you don’t deserve it? That you don’t deserve the body or happiness that you desire. You might feel comfortable right now, because that is what you know, but you are still unhappy. YOU NEED TO BELIEVE YOU DESERVE IT.

Are you scared to be thin? Do you feel out of your comfort zone?, and how things will be different?. You have to claim what you want out of your life. You have to define how you want to live your life.

  1. Don’t compare yourself to other people
  2. Life isn’t perfect. Don’t be negative or beat yourself up when you slip up. If your frustrated then reset your goal.
  3. Surround yourself with positive supportive people.
  4. Be SMART:
  5. S- specific aim or goal
  6. M-measureable short and long term goals
  7. A-attainable goals that are reachable
  8. R-realistic- there may be times of failure as well as celebration
  9. T-timely. Give yourself a time frame for when you want this goal reached
  10. Be proud of small wins.
  11. Portion control
  12. Eating the right foods
  13. Eat every 2-3 hours to keep your metabolism going
  14. Keep a food diary
  15. Stock foods that are healthy only
  16. Read food labels
  17. Discipline is developed by being disciplined. It takes time and practice. It is always hard at first, but the more you do it, the easier it gets.
  18. Think of losing weight in the long term
  19. Key: PATIENCE, CONSISTENCY, & PERSISTENCE
