Most people who set a weight loss goal go into a program with the best of intentions. However, research has shown that many people will ultimately fail their weight loss goals. Why is this?
The simple truth is that most weight loss plans and weight loss systems do not work because of a lack of planning at the initial stage of the program. All of us use schedules as a way to manage our time and our activity. Whether it is a class schedule at school, a work schedule, or simply planning out your day so you are more efficient, planning is a vital step to any activity.
Where most weight loss goals fail, is in the planning phase. Too often, people set unrealistic goals, and then fail to even plan to meet those goals. It is the same with your work or school schedule. If you go into a day unorganized, you find yourself missing key appointments, or missing classes, and before you know it, you have wasted your valuable time trying to dig out of a hole.
When creating your diet plan and weight loss goals, be sure to plan out what you will do, and then do it. Take the time to plan out your exercise schedule, even if just 30 minutes every other day, and then stick to it. Be sure to plan out your meals ahead of time, this will help you avoid the classic pitfall of eating what is available, which will surely set you behind. There is nothing more motivating than to have a weight loss plan, and then when executed, see it work!
