Have you decided enough is enough with your unhealthy habits? Are you ready to embark on a new healthy lifestyle journey but not sure where to begin? When you have a plan and someone to hold you accountable it’s much easier to get on track, stay focused and succeed. Here are five weight loss tips to get you started.
1. Baby Steps
Set a short term goal that is doable. Perhaps commit to walking 20 minutes a day or switching from 2 slices of bread at lunch to an open faced sandwich. Taking slow, baby steps is a realistic approach that will help you stick to your goals.
2. Tell a Friend
Let your friends and family what you have decided to accomplish. Tell them you would appreciate their support and encouragement. You can always find support at Fit Mom Diet’s social media channels. Let us know your goal and we will be your #1 Cheerleader.
