Just Change ONE Thing

5084 Views 8 Comments


Carrying extra weight is an issue for a lot of people. There is so much information around and most of us know what is good for us and what is not. But why do we still indulge, cheat or eat food that harms us? A big question I know. I am not an expert but I can share what has worked for me.

Start by just changing one thing. One tweak to your normal routine. Do something that is within your control. What small change can make an impact in your life?

We sit down to eat in the evening at around 6.30 pm most nights and then in summer take a walk or just hang out with the family together. Come 8.30 pm I would get hungry and want to snack or just wanted to comfort eat. I would nibble on chocolates or biscuits with a cup of tea.

I decided to make one small change; after dinner, I now go upstairs and brush my teeth. This has helped me manage those craving and be mindful of not eating just for the sake of it. A glass of water also helps.

The reward is that I go to bed with a lighter tummy and I feel much better when I wake up in the morning.

That is my ONE thing that I have changed which has helped me on my wellness journey. Here are some suggestions that have worked for other people that I have spoken to;

Drop that nightly glass of wine

No sugar in your tea and coffee

No soft drinks

Plan your meals for the next day

No carbs after 3pm

No junk food

Take these baby steps to get lasting results. Often a small change can create a chain reaction and set you off on even greater improvements in your life.

What are you going to do? What habit can you change?

    I love this! Taking baby steps makes it that much easier… which is what we need to start doing in our home as well, because 2016 was a rough one, weight-wise.

    I never used to eat from fast food places. But, due to numerous different reasons, I have found it a lot easier and less time-consuming to just pick up a meal somewhere. This is the big thing I have decided needs to change. I know my goal needs to be realistic and achievable. With that in mind, I have decided that two times per week total is my limit for right now.

    My small changes are no soft drink – just water and coffee (of course) and exercise 6 out of 7 days a week. Awesome post!
