Weight Loss Tips for the 12 Days of Christmas- Tip #5
UniqueU Presents Weight Loss Tips for the 12 Days of Christmas
The holiday season can take a toll on a weight loss program. To get us back on track, UniqueU offers a twist on the celebrated 12 Days of Christmas. In actuality, the Christian tradition of the 12 Days of Christmas begins on December 26. The final day of celebration is on January 6, the Epiphany, when the wise men arrived bearing gifts. One of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves is a healthy lifestyle. UniqueU wants to support you on this journey. In these days following Christmas, let’s get back on track with these 12 tips. Even if you aren’t currently in the program, these 12 Tips will have you feeling more energized and in control.
( UniqueU’s medical weight loss program utilizes a safe, effective formula that gives us the tools to lose weight and keep it off. It’s not a fad. The program is medically-based and proven. We all know that cutting calories and being more active should equal weight loss. The reality is that many of us need help shifting our metabolism and burning excess body fat. With UniqueU, we lose weight safely – fat loss not muscle – while we are changing habits.)
Tip 5 – What’s Wrong with Resolutions?
The New Year is quickly approaching, and chances are we’ve put losing weight back on the priority list. In a recent issue of Newsweek, Oliver Burkeman gave us the low down on New Year’s resolutions stating that in the scheme of things, they don’t work very well. Usually, we make sweeping resolutions like quitting smoking, exercising more or losing weight. These life-changing goals are well-intended, but take a huge toll on our willpower. As we touched on in Tip 4 – What’s Up with our Willpower?, our brain chemistry often overrules willpower and motivation.
What we are finding is that our brain responds well to “baby steps.” We’re talking itsy-bitsy, teeny-weenie, achievable goals. UniqueU Medical Weight Loss and Wellness program takes this into consideration, breaking the program into phases which include steps for sustainable weight loss. The kicker is that while we are learning and adjusting to the small changes, we will be losing weight at a healthy pace. No waiting around for weight loss to happen.
So, let’s resolve to lose weight in 2013 – through micro-changes!
Next Up: The upcoming posts that will take us to the 12th Day of Christmas will be “baby step” tips. Try them for four or five days. Hopefully, the end result will be a micro-change that suits you in your weight loss and maintenance journey.
