How-to: achieve your weight loss goals
Come February two things usually happen:
1.) The holiday season well and truly comes to and end and life settles back to a normal routine.
2.) You suddenly realise that despite making serious post-silly season New Years resolutions about losing weight and eating healthily, you haven’t even begun to put anything into practise.
It’s at this point that you either start to make a proper effort to lead a healthy lifestyle, or you give up entirely (I know I’m certainly guilty of the latter!).
So what’s the answer if you’re sick of putting your weight loss plans into the ‘too hard basket’, but don’t know how to find the motivation to kick-start (and stick to) a sustainable program?
It’s hard to go it alone, which is why you’re much more likely to lose weight and stick to a healthy lifestyle if you have a friend/partner going the distance with you. Not only will you have a buddy to exercise with, making you more likely to actually do it on a regular basis, but you’ll also be able to support and encourage each other whenever you get stuck in a rut or want to give into temptation.
Signing up to a weight-loss program like Jenny Craig will also help you stay on track. In fact, studies have shown that Jenny Craig clients lose five times more weight than those going it alone!
With Jenny Craig, not only will you be provided with all the right information and resources to help you make healthy lifestyle changes that are actually sustainable (bye-bye fad diets, hello healthy eating!), but you’ll also have the constant added support of your Jenny Craig consultant, who’ll help you work through your challenges, celebrate your successes and ultimately get you to achieve your goals.
And if you join up with a buddy you’re even more likely to reach your goals. When comparing people who joined a weight loss program with family or friends to those who joined alone, researchers found that 97 per cent of those who joined with support completed the program and achieved their goals, as opposed to only 76 per cent of those who joined alone.
There’s a Jenny Craig program to suit everyone’s needs – from working women and busy mums, to men and adolescents – so grab a buddy, get started and make good on those healthy living resolutions. We bet you won’t regret it!
