I'll take into account this advice I found online. Fellow dieters, I hope this sharing will helps you stay sane while losing.
1. Being realistic and patient
I'm not very patient person. A saying goes, you didn't gain it overnight, so you can't lose weight overnight. But like many others, I hate to wait. And I think it's just part of human nature. I realize that impatient is my biggest diet blunder. Some successful weight losers claim that regular weighing is one of their strategy to lose weight. But I found out that getting on the scale constantly stresses me out, because I'm obsess about seeing a major change on the scale. So, I decided to be more realistic this time, I will still weigh myself but only about once a month to avoid discouragement. There are better ways to assess results, like how tight your clothes are.
2. Don't tell everyone you're dieting
If you announce you weight loss plan to the whole world (like what I just did here :p ), you'll have people talk or judge your diet plan and make you feel uncomfortable when you eat something that they believe should not be in your diet plan. Just tell close family and friends for support. As for me, I find that keeping your weight loss journey documented on a blog like this really helpful because you'll keep yourself accountable. When you have to report to someone else, it forces you to change your action and how you think.
3. Household support
I want to make sure my husband is ready to support me. If he choose to eat unhealthy, he can do it away from the home.
4. Exercise is like brushing your teeth
Discussion and talk about this will helped start me off on my weightloss journey. I'd love to hear everyone's experience. Leave your thought in the comments.
