Staying on Track

When you want to lose weight, distractions and detours seem to pop up everywhere - baby showers, business lunches, birthday parties, grab-n-go dinners, breakfasts-on-the-run, etc.  What can you do to stay on track?  Try these tips:

Set a goal.  How much weight do you want to lose?  What's your deadline?  Write your goal down and keep it with you so you can refer to it often.  Post your goal around your house and office to serve as daily reminders of what you want to achieve.

Divvy it up.  Instead of getting overwhelmed by all those extra pounds you need to lose, break your goal down into manageable chunks.

Make it real.  If your goal isn't realistic, change your goal or change your deadline.  Don't set yourself up for failure.

Be prepared.  Don't sacrifice your weight loss goals because of a busy schedule.  If you want healthy, convenient meals and snacks, stock up on our no-fuss weight management products such as hearty soups (Homestyle Chicken with Noodles, Ministrone Soup) and creamy puddings.  Other products provide a truly grab-and-go treat, such as our delicous nutrition bars and our hit-the-spot snacks.

Get support.  Your weight-loss counselor can be a great resource when times get tough.  Whether you need a cheerleader or just someone to hold you accountable, think of your counselor as a vital lifeline to success.

Celebrate the victories.  Whether you reached your weekly weight loss goal or you worked out five times this week, take time to celebrate and savor each milestone.
