Agreement To Lose Weight

Towards a real­is­tic goal! This is prob­a­bly my biggest prob­lem. I still want to reach a weight that I hadn‘t had since col­lege, when I was able to eat much less than I need today to func­tion. It‘s some­thing I should do! I have a lot of weight to lose:( For months, we had been talk­ing about an idea we had brewed, an incen­tive plan that was sup­posed to help us lose weight together, that doesn‘t involve pay­ing some­one else for their help. So when we were finally com­pletely dis­gusted with our­selves, to the point that even fries and cheese­cakes couldn‘t calm our food souls, we wrote and signed every­thing in writ­ing. A weight loss pro­gram that works should include: proper diet, exer­cise, and por­tion con­trol. This weight loss con­tract is an agree­ment between the patient and the doc­tor to com­mit to achiev­ing a long-term goal of achiev­ing a healthy weight. Excel­lent work to give your­self a real­is­tic goal. As a recov­er­ing per­fec­tion­ist, I under­stand that this can be dif­fi­cult! And I love your con­tract and how it‘s a team effort where you and Den­nis will work towards the same goal. I always respond to chal­lenges with a built-in reward, so if I ever need to make a weight loss plan, I‘ll adopt your method. Splurge money would cer­tainly be a strong moti­va­tion! This weight loss con­tract is based on two spe­cific coach­ing and moti­va­tion strate­gies that have been widely stud­ied and accepted by pro­fes­sional coaches and motivators.

I think so much of my prob­lem is thought­less food. espe­cially at this time of year. This year, I‘m going to focus on stay­ing focused every time I put some­thing in my mouth. I kept most of the weight I lost when I started with WW, but some of it slipped in. I go back to meet­ings and I lose again. I would like to keep the money I spend each month to myself instead of giv­ing it to WW. Maybe one day. The promise allows you to achieve a very spe­cific short-term goal (also known as a SMART goal). While mov­ing through­out the day, you com­mit to pay­ing atten­tion to your efforts, big and small, to achieve this goal. Every small step is impor­tant because it builds con­fi­dence and brings you closer to a fit, active and healthy body. There­fore, every small step should be rec­og­nized and celebrated.

Your con­tract should describe some of the lifestyle behav­iors you will adopt. For exam­ple, indi­cate how many min­utes and what type of car­dio you will do per week and how many resis­tance work­outs you will per­form. To lose weight, the Amer­i­can Col­lege of Sports Med­i­cine rec­om­mends 150 min­utes of aer­o­bic train­ing with mod­er­ate inten­sity for mod­er­ate weight loss. If you have more to lose, ACSM rec­om­mends 250 min­utes or more of mod­er­ate aer­o­bic train­ing. In addi­tion, you par­tic­i­pate in two or three body­build­ing ses­sions per week. Also define the foods you eat and the foods you will give up. The MayoClinic.com site rec­om­mends con­sum­ing seven serv­ings of fresh fruits and veg­eta­bles a day and lim­it­ing the absorp­tion of meat and fat.…
