Step 1:

b) Follow the S.M.A.R.T acronym for goal setting. Your goals need to be specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely.
c) Consider this! If you lose one pound per week and sustain your efforts, it becomes 52 pounds for the year!

Step 2:
a) Prioritize! You are important. Make your healthy routine a priority.
b) Be patient with yourself. It’s going to take some time to get consistent with your healthy changes.

Step 3:
a) Take it day-by-day. Enjoy the small successes, including sticking with your healthy routine.
b) Make a personal commitment to yourself. Develop a mindset that you will take the daily actions necessary to achieve your goals.
c) Don’t rush it. Slow and steady wins the race!

Step 4:
a) Value consistency. Make healthy healthy habits part of your daily routine.
b) When things get hard, don’t give up. Remain committed, even with the challenges you face.
c) The difference between success and failure? A commitment to persevere!

Step 5:
a) Find the balance between long-term health goals and quick changes.
b) Healthy is a life-long commitment! A single success does not mean your journey is over.
c) Remember, 90% of people who lose weight will regain more weight than they lost within 2 years.

Follow these steps and make this year your best year ever!
