Halloween can strike fear in many adults, but not because of the horror houses, haunted hayrides and scary movies. For people who have been working hard on their weight loss journey, the holiday that celebrates with candy can be frightening. Read on to discover the best ways to celebrate and lose weight so this season is not so spooky.
Stay Committed and Accountable
The most important tip we can provide is to stay committed and hold yourself accountable. Doing this sets you up for success. Don’t get tricked by temptation! You know what foods you should and shouldn’t be eating. When you fully commit to your weight loss program, which is also your ticket to wellness, you will see the results you’re seeking. Every day you are one day closer to your goal weight. Don’t let this spooky holiday ruin that for you.
As for accountability, be honest with yourself. It’s not your ability that determines success; it’s your accountability! Keep a food journal to be accountable for every bite you consume, so you don’t unintentionally trick yourself. Remember we are just a phone call away for guidance and support when you are in need.
Treat Yourself to Prepaid Visits
If you have been slacking on scheduling visits, try treating yourself to prepaid follow-ups and save money at the same time! Paying in advance for visits reinforces commitment. Having already paid for your visit will motivate you to actually come in and not reschedule or make an excuse.
Achieve Long-Term Results with Weekly Follow-Ups
Many individuals find themselves swinging back and forth between being overweight, getting thinner, and then regaining the weight. Much of this comes from fad diets and short-term exercise programs. Getting the weight off and keeping it off requires a consistent, long-term plan and continuous support, and that’s what our clinic provides.
