Make Your Resoutions Last

Weight Loss Resolutions from Metabolic Medical CentersBe Specific. It's not enough to simply say "I'm going to lose weight this year." Be specific with how you're going to accomplish it. Set attainable daily, weekly, and monthly goals.      For example, your daily goal may be to drink 8 oz. of water everyday 8 times a day. Your weekly goal may be to cook with twice as many vegetables as you normally would. Your monthly goal may be to try a new vegetable cooked 2 different, healthy ways.

Keep a Journal. Studies show that people who keep a journal are more successful at losing weight and keeping it off. The reason? Your thoughts, feelings and ideas are meaningful to you. Record your goals and write about you met (or didn't meet) them. Record the changes you want to see in yourself and how you plan to get there.
Buddy Up. Everything is easier with friends. Friends love us and want us to be healthy, they also keep us in check. Our friends make us accountable for our actions, not to mention they give us unconditional love and constant support. Find one or two trusted friends and enlist their help.
Reward Yourself, Creatively. When you lose a few pounds don't reward yourself with a "treat", you're not a dog. Get creative. Reward yourself with that cute skirt you saw at the mall or  a new kitchen tool that helps make cooking healthy meals easier. I'm sure you'll think of something.
Give a Helping Hand. Clean out your kitchen pantry and donate your non-perishables to a local food bank, church or other charity. This lifts your spirits and others. After you've lost weight, you can donate your clothes too.
Support and Encourage.  Metabolic is always here for your support and now, thanks to facebook, other patients are reaching out to "newbies" too. They give each other the kind of encouragement only someone who is going through the program can offer. Visit our facebook page for daily humor, encouragement, recipes, articles or just to ask a question. Metabolic Medical Center community is always there for you.

Use a Meal Supplement in place of a Snack.  Metabolic has many great tasting meal supplements that can be found on their online store. Find your Profast Weight Loss Products here.
