3 Keys to Make Your New Year's Resolution To Lose Weight Stick!
Don't let another year go by living with that same old frustrating struggle with your weight!

So you want to lose weight and you're thinking that another New Year's Resolution is the way to go? Perhaps you've already gained the expected 10 pounds of Holiday Weight Gain and you almost can't wait for January 1!

However you've had enough experience with this by now that you already know New Year's Resolutions are broken within two weeks, at the most. Most don't last beyond 3 days.

 

Yes, it's disheartening, but true. But then why isn't willpower enough to make your New Year's Resolution to lose weight stick? And what if you really do want to lose weight, but you just can't stop eating?

What's important to notice before going further is (if you're completely honest with yourself), you can see that food and weight are a struggle for you year-round. It's simply easier to see during the holiday season due to the abundance of opportunities to indulge.

3 Keys to Make Your New Year's Resolution To Lose Weight Stick

I have three keys to share with you to help you lose weight successfully, and for good. But do note that I am going to tell you the truth. Because that's what I deliver to my permanent weight loss coaching clients: The truth.

The first key to making your resolution to lose weight actually stick is that you MUST get a weight loss mindset. That's it! Plain and simple.

But why do you need a weight loss mindset? Great question! Here's why:

Mindset is 90% of the game of permanent, struggle-free success with your weight. With a weight loss mindset no willpower is needed. Therefore there is no force, no struggle, and actually there would be no need for a New Year's Resolution to lose weight! A resolution is a force: you are attempting to force yourself into doing something that you truly do not want to do (on one hand).

How do you know you don't want to lose weight? Because you'd be doing it right now if you could. You would never even consider waiting until a date on the calendar to make changes. There would be no need to! If you already had a weight loss mindset.

This does not mean that the whole of you does not want to lose weight. What it means is that the part of you that is always winning...the part of you that continues to sabotage your weight loss efforts...that part does not want to live a healthy and fit lifestyle. A lifestyle that would allow you to sail through any time of year without weight gain, and without struggle!

That part of you that continues to sabotage your weight loss efforts and for some reason is fighting you tooth and nail. It might allow you to lose weight sometimes, but it always comes back with a vengeance - both the overeating, and the overweight!

Therefore, you're not helping yourself by making a New Year's Resolution to lose weight with your current mindset, unless you're ok with regaining the weight you've lost (you already know this from your past experiences with yo-yo weight loss/weight gain).
