If you are overweight, you may be prone to social, emotional and health problems. You need to plan a strict diet to help you lose weight.
Whether written by you or a professional, a weight loss plan doesn’t have to be too complicated or too demanding in tonnes. Instead of having the plan command that you like an army commander, make it your new best friend. Think of it as your coach. A friendly but strict coach. That way, you don’t feel intimidated by your own rules.
To keep track of and achieve your goals, your plan must be reasonable and realistic. Make sure your plan is simple and effective so that it would be easier for you to do them. If you are 65 pounds, don’t dream of losing 30 pounds in 30 days. BMI or Body Mass Index is a good basis if you need to shed pounds or not.
Another factor is your reason behind the plan. If you are planning to lose weight just to bring your ex back or make her new partner envious, forget it. Your goals should be for your own sake. Don’t let vanity force you to do this. Sooner or later, you may realize that your intentions are not as useful as preventing you from continuing the plan.
If you are planning to write your own, here are some things to consider in your plan:
- Your exercise plan
- The ultimate goal
- Daily calorie intake
- List of foods you can eat
- List of foods you cannot eat
- Journal Entries
- Calendar of healthy activities
- Diet card for weight loss
Always remember that a plan is not a wish list. You don’t write a plan just to leave it in the drawer for ages. A plan is made to be realistic because you know that you will intervene soon. Do everything you need to do to be what you want to be. Respect your plan as how you respect your coach. Make it happen.
