This post was created as part of a relationship in which I was sponsored by Weight Watchers and given a free three month subscription to try their new Personal Coaching product and write about my experience. Though I was compensated for my time and commitment, all views, positive and negative, are my own. #WeightWatchers #WWsponsored
Food and exercise are definitely a big part of losing weight. But it takes more than a free health and fitness app to find success. It takes support, flexibility, and a change in the way you think about losing weight.
Changing the Way You Think About Losing Weight
It’s not easy to lose weight. It requires dedication and hard work. But I’ve also learned that a lot of my success depends on the support I have and my mindset. So if you’re starting your weight loss journey or are somewhere in the middle of it, here’s a few things that have helped me think differently about losing weight.
One of the things I struggle with a lot on my weight loss journey are the thoughts in my own head. I know I can be my worst enemy and when I’m thinking self-defeating thoughts or focusing on the challenges, losing weight is hard. So keep a check on the kinds of thoughts you’re having about yourself and the work you’re putting in.
Handle the Stress
Another big challenge I face on a regular basis is stress. I’m an emotional person and I have been known to do some emotional eating in the past. If you are like me, work on solving problems rather than letting them sit. When those negative thoughts pop up, turn them around. And work on learning new ways to cope with stress and emotions.
Enjoy the Ride
Losing weight is definitely a journey and while you’re on it, life is going to continue. There will be birthday parties, lunch dates, and holidays. I’ll admit that parties with cake and cupcakes hit me right in a weak spot. And with two young kids, I go to a lot of birthday parties. And, well… CAKE.
This is where Weight Watchers has really helped me. It’s not a restrictive or isolating “diet” but a plan that is flexible enough that you feel like you can still live and enjoy. For me, Weight Watchers gives me the tools to plan ahead. It’s a plan that I can live with, enjoy treats from time to time, and still find success!
I’ll admit that I’ve had ups and downs on my weight loss journey over the past few months but the support I’ve gotten from Weight Watchers personal coaching has helped me keep my thoughts in the positive and helped me to stay focused on my goal. Being able to reach out whenever I needed someone to listen was huge for me!
