Is losing weight about goals or actions?
I am sometimes feel that behavior change is more important than setting a goal. If you do things differently the results will change. And just starring at the result won’t make it happen.
For example: I want to be wealthy as a goal. So what? How about, I’m going to save 10% of my income every check.
Guess which one works?
For example, I want to lose 10 pounds. So what?! How about: I’m going to exercise 5 mornings a week and follow a paleo eating style for the next week.
For me it is about:
- Buying the right foods – skipping by the stuff that is “trouble” the pastry, pizza, fries etc. Ordering a salad with lean meat and dressing on the side.
- Cooking the right foods – adding in more vegetables, cutting back on carbs, drinking lots of water
- Portion control – Cutting back on seconds
- Moving more – taking the farthest spot in the parking lot or the stairs instead of the elevator.
