Compassionate Weight Loss: A New Approach for the New Year

By Karen Morris

As we step into the new year, many of us find ourselves contemplating resolutions, often with weight loss topping the list.

However, the reality is that traditional New Year’s resolutions often fall by the wayside.

In this blog, we’ll explore why that happens and provide a more specific, compassionate approach to setting weight loss goals.

As a seasoned Naturopath, I’ve seen the transformative power of self-care, and with a touch of dedication, it’s possible to make weight loss a fulfilling and even enjoyable journey.

First of all, why do New Year’s Resolutions typically fail?

New Year’s resolutions often fail because they lack specificity and a sustainable plan. Vague goals like “lose weight” without a clear roadmap can set you up for frustration and disappointment.

Instead, let’s focus on setting achievable and specific objectives that align with your overall health and well-being, and let’s even make it fun!

Define your weight loss goals with precision: Whether it’s shedding a certain number of kilograms or achieving a healthier body mass index (BMI), specificity creates a roadmap for success. For example, “By the end of March 2024, I will have lost 3 kilos with exercise and nutrition and I will be feeling much healthier and happier”

Consider incorporating both short-term and long-term objectives to keep yourself motivated and on track. And remember to include how it will make you feel as this turns up the dial on motivation.

Commit to your self-care: Weight loss is not just about shedding kilos; it’s a commitment to yourself and your well-being. Ask yourself, “What kind of role model do I want to be for myself and my family?”

Embrace the journey with compassion and patience, understanding that positive change takes time.

Prioritize self-care through nourishing foods, regular exercise and sufficient rest.

Find an exercise that is fun for you and you will have a better time sticking to it.

Take responsibility for your health: this is the number one key! Empower yourself by taking responsibility for your health. Acknowledge that sustainable weight loss requires effort, commitment, and consistent choices.

Be an active participant in your journey, making mindful decisions that align with your goals. Check in with yourself daily.

Make weight loss fun: Transforming your mindset is key to making weight loss an enjoyable journey. Find joy in physical activities you love, explore new recipes, and celebrate small victories along the way. Infuse fun into your routine to stay motivated and engaged. The more fun you can make and the more you celebrate each success along the way, the more successful you will be.

Cultivate a Positive Mindset: Shift your focus from restriction to empowerment. Instead of viewing weight loss as a burden, see it as an opportunity for positive change. Cultivate a mindset that values progress over perfection, fostering a sustainable and fulfilling journey. Life is meant to be fun!
