Self-control and willpower to lose weight to improve PCOS health can be enhanced with a few simple considerations. The first step is to understand that losing weight is a long-term commitment. Real results can take months. But if you’re dedicated to a healthier diet and regular exercise you’ll see a small but encouraging difference very quickly in 2011.
The next thing to do is to assess your reasons for wanting to lose weight and how badly you want it. Milestone-driven goals can be good reasons, provided they are far enough in the future. For example, if you are going to be a bridesmaid at a wedding in six months or a year, that is a healthy timeline for losing weight … and good motivation to do so.
Social situations can be difficult when they involve food and drink. Of course, there are healthy choices on every menu. However, it can feel awkward to be the only one eating a salad when everyone else is eating pizza. If you don’t want to tell them you’re “On a diet,” or “Trying to lose weight,” just say that you are “Trying to adopt a healthier lifestyle.” However, keep in mind that letting your friends and family know about your weight loss goals may provide mental and emotional support.
Lastly, don’t be afraid to let yourself slip up once in awhile. Going off of your diet for a day or letting yourself have a guilty pleasure once in a while won’t wreck your entire diet. But if you step on a scale and see your weight hasn’t budged for five days, don’t despair and eat everything in sight. Remember that true weight loss takes time! Losing a pound a week may seem incredibly slow. But think of that weight loss over the span of six month. – 26 weeks could leave you 26 pounds thinner!
