Movement Is The Essence Of Life
It’s Not A Diet.
It’s A Lifestyle Change
Weight + Exercising = Weight Control
10 Habits to Help You Keep Your Weight Under Control
Keep it super simple. Take a safe, easy gentle walk anywhere.
You can wave no magic wand for weight loss, but these ten habits come close. If you’re able to incorporate these lifestyle changes into your life, you’re likely to not only lose weight but keep it off.
To lose weight and keep it off, you must be willing to change. While multiple factors beyond your control can affect your ability to lose weight (including genetics, race, and age), there is plenty you can do to experience the transformation you desire. So, are you ready to make wellness changes that stick?
Creating the right goals and changing your habits to set yourself up for success are crucial elements of any long-term weight loss plan.

#1. Address Both Diet and Exercise
#2. Make SMART Goals
- Specific: “I want to lose 15 Kg’s and keep it off.”
- Measurable: You can measure weight loss, but it’s harder to measure happiness. Therefore, “be happy in a bikini” is a less effective goal than “to fit into a size eight bikini.” or “Lose 20 Kg’s in a week” is not an achievable goal. Be realistic about what you want to achieve, and make sure it is possible and in your best interest.
- Attainable: To make your weight loss goal achievable, you should evaluate your history of weight loss or habit changes. For example, if you’ve never been able to lose more than 5 kg’s, then a weight loss goal of 15kg’s might not be reasonable. Or if you’ve set a goal to exercise every day and you’ve never hit that goal for more than a few days, then a daily exercise goal is probably not attainable.
- Relevant: “Have a beach body” might be an appropriate goal for one person, while “climbing up a flight of stairs without getting winded” might be the best goal for another. Be sure the goal you set is tailor-made for you.
- Time-bound: “Fit into my size eight jeans by December 1, 2022.”
