Have you ever decided to lose weight because a big event was coming?
You’re getting married.
Your high school reunion is a few months away.
You’re going to the Caribbean or the beach and can’t avoid putting on a swimsuit.
You want to look your best, so you decide something like, “I need to lose 20 pounds--FAST!”
Then you start some kind of quick-fix diet. You know, like the ones you’ve tried a million times before that haven’t worked.
Maybe you think, “I’ll just cut out carbs for the next few months! I can do that!”
Or “I’ll do Whole 30!”
Losing weight for a big event is a lousy motivator, though, and that’s why it rarely works.
Why waste your time and energy losing weight temporarily, especially when yo-yo dieting is unhealthy?
Listen to learn the importance of motivation and commitment in your weight loss effort, and how to get motivated to succeed over the long term.
