The Secret To Losing Weight – Maintaining a Journal
It has been proven time after time, that those people, who write down everything they eat and drink and make a record of all of their activities, have a far better chance of success at losing weight than those who do not.
Did you ever keep a diary or a journal? Sometimes just writing down your day’s events can help relieve stress and put things in a different perspective. The same goes for keeping a diet and exercise journal. By writing down everything you eat and drink, you come face to face with what works and what doesn’t.
By writing down everything you eat and drink you are taking responsibility for what you are eating. Maintaining the journal gives you a clear and concise evaluation of which foods work for you. Recording your activities helps to chart your progress as you improve flexibility, build strength and increase stamina.
You see, in order to be successful at anything, you have to master the task in your mind first. You have to make a plan to succeed. When you put the plan into writing, you give yourself proof of your commitment to achieving the goal.
However, losing weight is not easy. It takes courage, commitment, inspiration, motivation and a great amount of faith. Keeping a journal will help to keep you on track, keep you inspired and motivated and will remind you of the commitment you have made to yourself.
