We can all agree that when it comes to weight loss journeys, it is always best to have a plan. After all, succeeding at anything never just happens. It takes commitment, focus, and more often than not, a well thought out approach. Healthy weight loss is no different, in fact, it is both more difficult and more rewarding. That means, the reward is a healthier, improved version of ourselves.  But it is also more difficult, because in order to build good habits, we first need to break the bad ones. We all know breaking a habit is much easier said than done, which is in part where coaching comes in. Let’s explore the ways in how a combination of a weight loss plan and coaching is one of the best paths to take on our weight loss journey.

Plan For Success

Having a weight loss plan is, ideally, a road map to successful weight loss. By planning thoughtfully, we have the time to mentally prepare for what is ahead of us. After all, healthy weight loss does not happen overnight. By organizing our approach, we can plan meals and workouts ahead of time, as well as set realistic goals and milestones to hit within reasonable time frames. Maybe the goal is to increase the distance we can walk in 30 minutes, or even some non-scale victories. It’s important to plan ahead and focus as we go, because otherwise, we can overlook our achievements and feel demoralized when the scale hasn’t changed as much as we thought. Remember, the goal is to be healthier, and while the number on the scale may not shift as much as we’d like, the scale doesn’t know we no longer feel as winded when we climb a flight of stairs. Healthy weight loss is more than a number, it’s a lifestyle, so plan for all aspects of it, including…

Planning for Failure

As we have said in the past, we are all only human. Sometimes, we stumble. In fact, one thing we all have in common is that some days, we just fall a little short. That’s ok! But by planning for this in advance, we can set up ways to move past slip ups, and make sure that we at least fail forward, instead of just giving up altogether. It is worth pointing out the added benefit of this is that if we have a plan on how to deal with our missteps, then we will be more focused on avoiding them in the first place. By recognizing our weaknesses, we learn to adapt and work around them. Eventually this becomes second nature, and it becomes that much easier to break our less healthy habits.

Share in Your Success!

As with all forms of self-improvement, weight loss journeys are a very personal endeavors. The reason being, is that we are the primary beneficiaries of our progress. But that doesn’t mean we are the only ones. A healthier lifestyle can help our personal relationships, because not only do we have more energy to enjoy our time with our loved ones, but as our mood and self-confidence improves, we are more  to likely to be more pleasant to be around. The reasoning is simple, really. When we succeed at improving ourselves, we take pride in it, it brings us joy. And more often than not, that joy is contagious! Now, why is this a helpful part of a weight loss plan?

Opinions Can Often Be Constructive

Like we just said, our weight loss journeys are personal. But by planning to share our success with the people in our lives, we also open ourselves up to their opinions. Understandably, this can make most of us anxious. It’s hard to hear critiques, no matter how helpful they are, when we are feeling good about our progress. But this can be beneficial, because it’s hard to look in the mirror after so much progress and see where we are still falling short. By getting an outside perspective, we can identify problem areas in our weight loss plans and take steps to make our journey more efficient. To that end…

Coaching Ties Everything Together Nicely

A coach for our weight loss plan sometimes seems unnecessary, because if we’re making progress, why mess with a winning formula? In short, because it can improve our rate of progress AND help keep us focused. A good coach is basically a combination of a teacher and a cheerleader. Someone to give us the information we need to keep making healthy strides, and someone to cheer us on and motivate us, as well as holding us accountable. Coaches are one of the best ways to lose weight in a healthy manner, stay focused, and build better habits. And most importantly, they help us not get carried away. It’s easy to let enthusiasm become overenthusiasm and make us exceed our limits. A coach can help rein in our good intentions so that our weight loss journey is both sustainable and safe.
