Trusted Regina weightloss and healthy lifestyle partner share a tip on your Vision

Focus on what you can do to change your life as you see fit.

A Vision statement  can help keep you on your path



There are always reasons that people want to lose weight and it is never to just look good.  It is for health, get back that sense of control, gain confidence or even just have a better quality of life.  You have to figure out why it is important to you.  The number on the scale should honestly not be important.  We need to get past how that number defines us as people and as our accomplishments.




There are always reasons that people want to lose weight and it is never to just look good.  It is for health, get back that sense of control, gain confidence or even just have a better quality of life.  You have to figure out why it is important to you.  The number on the scale should honestly not be important.  We need to get past how that number defines us as people and as our accomplishments.

If you are like everyone else you believe that losing weight will make life easier for you and then you can really live it like you always wanted to.  We know that is not true.  We need to do it for a solid reason of why. And the “why” will be different for each person.  It could be to help fix medical problems or prevent them.  Trying to live longer to see the grandchildren grow.  Have more strength and ability to do activities.  It could be just the confidence to walk into a crowded room and when people turn to look at you, you don’t want to scream “don’t look at me”, you want scream “you think this side looks good you should take at look at this.”  as you spin in circles.

But whatever your reasons to be losing weight they have to be yours!  There is one thing that will help you achieve that goal, it is the small goals to get there but the main goal has to be kept in your sights.  Keeping your motivation long term it is hard but the end results are always worth it.

People always lose sight of the final goal.  We are always so worried about what is on the scale and the drama of the ups and downs.  When you focus on that, you start stressing about it and it makes you an emotional mess.  Hello to emotional eating.

We always believe that you need to lose weight before you can do anything else.  When you reach your goal weight you being lighter doesn’t solve the problems or the situations that you thought your weight loss would “cure”.  Which then makes us go back to our old ways.  If you think that this will be solution to all your problems, think again. If you don’t change your ways and stop worrying about how much weight you have lost on your weigh in days.  You lose the reason of why you started on this journey.

Something I recommend is to set up a Vision Statement.  Your statement should tell you WHY you want to lose weight.  And WHY your efforts to succeed is worth it.  It can have general elements (feeling good about yourself), but the big picture should be more specific.    You can do this if you ask yourself questions like:
What would my “perfect” day look like. Explain everything in that day, from the time you get up, to what happens during the day, to going to sleep.  Have what you will eat, who you will spend the day with.  You should even put down how you will handle any speed bumps that you may have in your daily life. 

What are my personal morals/values,(family, interest, career, success, strength, friendships, giving to others, etc.) What do I want my life to show? You should rank these morals/values  as if you had to choose between them at any given moment.
What do I want my life to look like in 1-5 years? You need to explain what you want to be doing, the kind of things you want to take on, how you want to see yourself, etc.

This vision statement can help keep you on your path.  It should have Inspiration and Direction on how to get there.  These questions are just to get you thinking.  Your vision can include your beliefs and a question of “Why is losing weight is so important in my life goals?”.

Your vision statement should tell you what else needs to change within yourself and your life to get you to where you want to be.  And I am talking besides your weight!!  And don’t be surprised that your statement will take on a new direction as you start to change.  I am not telling you to get down on the way things are now.  Focus on what you can do to change your life as you see fit. 

Be kind to Yourself!!

Ideas to help you succeed this summer on your journey to weight loss

Here are some ideas to help you succeed this summer:


Turn off the electronics 

If you focus on what you are in eating you will have better success. 

Studies have shown that people who eat watching TV or playing video games have no idea if they were satisfied with the food they just ate.


Drink Smart

After a long hot day, it’s really is easy to down a few frozen margaritas.  As we all know that is a lot of calories.  If you really want a drink try a vodka and soda.  

When a drink doesn’t take like a Slurpee you are more likely to drink it slower so you are taking in fewer calories.



Have A Good Sleep

Studies have shown that if you sleep less you lose less fat and generally feel more hungry.



Eat Spicy Foods

Studies have also shown that eating spicy foods help speed up your metabolism.  Things like chili peppers.  They also say that spicy foods can help trigger the feeling of full in comparison to bland foods.




Plan Your Meals Ahead Of Time

If you plan your meals you are more likely to stick to your diet to help you reach your goals.





Flaunt What You Got

When it is getting warmer out show more skin.  When you wear loose fitting clothes you are more likely to eat more




Stay Motivated

It is so easy to forget to eat healthy, working out and the reason why you started on this journey.  You need to always remind yourself why you are doing this.




Drink Coffee

Studies show that caffeine speeds up metabolism.  Just remember that is coffee without sugary syrups.



Hope that you found this helpful.
