At Iowa Weight Loss Specialists, we are challenging you to “Know Your Why” as you are thinking of your New Year’s Resolution this year.
Was 2019 the year that you said you would lose weight? Now the year has come and gone. With 2020 here, is it time to put yourself first? Time can go by so quickly and we can get easily distracted by so many things in our lives. Could we be living a better life? Could we start putting our health first? What is stopping you? Better yet, what is motivating you to want to make a change?
Are you thinking about your New Year’s Resolution? Many people focus on the scale for New Year’s Resolutions. They sign up for gym memberships, pay for expensive weight loss programs and set a goal to focus on just a number on the scale to change with no plan or reason. What does the number on the scale mean if we don’t know our “why.” When we don’t have a plan or know our “why” then we are setting ourselves up to fail.
Did you ever think that your New Year’s Resolution should focus more on why you want to make that specific resolution? Too many people focus on the scale alone instead of the "why." Think about why you want to lose weight. Losing weight helps us to become healthy. When we focus on our health, we can create more specific goals.
Working towards better health we can focus on goals such as:
Decrease A1C levels
Decrease blood pressure
Get rid of joint pain
Do you know why you want to be healthier in 2020? What do you always think about when you think about your health? Are you lacking self-confidence? Do you want to have a more active life with your kids/grandkids? Are you sick of taking so many medications? Are you having trouble sleeping? Do you suffer from Type II Diabetes, high blood pressure, joint pain or sleep apnea? What is stopping you from making this change and living your best life? What motivates you and makes you think “Yes! I can do this!”
