The Full Mind Weigh® to Lifelong Weight Management, a program of the Institute for Lifelong Weight Management – teaching you the skills you need to keep the weight off forever!
What do you want for yourself this year? What do you deeply desire?
If your answer has anything to do with weight, go deeper – what would it mean to you to lose the weight you’ve been wanting to lose, to be able to maintain that healthy weight forever? What would this mean for your goals, your dreams, your hopes and your desires? If you could maintain a healthy weight, what would change for you – what would you want to have change? What would this lead to for you? What would you want it to lead to? What would you do that you don’t do now? What would you not do that you do now? How would this change how you feel – about yourself, your life, your future?
Way beyond the issue of weight, what is it that you really want? And what do you deeply desire for yourself that depends on long-term weight management success? What part of living a fulfilled and satisfying life depends on you being able to maintain a healthy weight for life? What do you want to do – or be – that depends on you being fit, strong, and healthy? Focus on that – not on the weight itself.
What if you don’t know what you want?
Try asking yourself these questions:
What do I see as my life’s purpose?
How will I measure success?
How do I want to contribute?
What do I want to stand for?
How do I want to be remembered?
What is my greatest gift?
What is really important to me?
What do I strongly believe in?
What do I deeply value?
When you look back on this year, in less than 12 months from now, what do you want to see?
What obstacles do you want to overcome, and what do you want to accomplish?
What are the tangible changes, outcomes or results that you’d like to see?
What do you want to learn?
How do you want to change?
What new habits can you cultivate that will help you achieve your goals?
What are your immediate first steps? – Focus on small, daily actions.
Make this New Year your best year ever!
“New Year’s Day. A fresh start. A new chapter in life waiting to be written. New questions to be asked, embraced, and loved. Answers to be discovered and then lived in this transformative year of delight and self-discovery. Today carve out a quiet interlude for yourself in which to dream, pen in hand. Only dreams give birth to change.” – Sarah Ban Breathnach
“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.” – Neil Gaiman
“What great thing would you attempt if you knew you could not fail? “ – Dr. Robert H. Schuller
“If you do nothing unexpected, nothing unexpected happens.” – Fay Weldon
