New Year's Resolution Guidelines

Written by 

Happy New Year! What is your New Year's resolution this year? Is it weight loss? Will you really lose your weight and then keep it off? Here's how.

Here's a worksheet to get you on your way. Why a worksheet? By writing your goals out you will be more likely to achieve them. It's also good to review what you actually have to do (have an action plan) to achieve your goal, and then determine what challenges you will have. Then you will have a real plan to overcome them, BEFORE an obstacle occurs. The following questions can be starting points:

New Year’s Resolution Guidelines

1. Write your goal on the line. Be as specific as possible!

My goal is ________________________________ .

2. Define your deadline date for reaching your goal. Allow additional time for setbacks as they will happen, it's part of the process.

I will reach my goal by _______________________ .

3. Now take the time to honestly answer the following questions. By answering these questions you will know ahead of time how you will respond to the challenges ahead.

• What do I have to do to be successful and reach my goal? Then, how will I keep my weight off for the long-term? (Make sure following through with Step 3 is included here!)

• What are the specific unhealthy behaviors that have contributed to my weight?

• What will I do to change them? What sacrifices am I willing to make?

• On a scale of 1-10, how strong is my desire to achieve my goal? If it is not 10 how will I develop my motivation?

• What are all the benefits of reaching my goal? List as many as you can as you will have to rely on this for your motivation later on when motivation lags or when you have a slip, or even if you are not motivated enough now

• How will I encourage and motivate myself when I want to give up or have a setback?

• How will I reward myself for my weekly efforts (without food)?

• What will I say to people who are negative about my efforts or progress?

• How can friends and family members help and assist me achieve my goal?

• Am I sincerely committed to my weekly clinic visits for support and guidance (especially when I slip)? Am I willing to ask for help when I need it? Am I willing to utilize the educational handouts to facilitate needed changes?

Now it’s up to you to make things happen this year, remember: "There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them." - Dr. Denis Waitley
