What would happen if a fairy godmother waved her magic wand and made the daily goals you set for weight loss feel easy to achieve?
Interestingly, it doesn’t take a fairy godmother to pull off such magic. You too have what it takes to make your daily weight loss goals feel easy to accomplish.
But first (uh, oh, there's a catch). (No catch). See if you can identify which daily weight loss goals feel the easiest and most natural for you to work on. Don’t pick goals with activities that would feel too demanding, too strenuous, or too stressful for you. Remember, this is subjective: what feels the least effortless for you. Why subjective when it comes to effort? Because people differ in what motivates them and what is most congruent with how they define themselves. Some people don’t mind training for a long distance race. They find running, no matter what the effort, enjoyable, freeing, and even comfortable.
When your daily weight loss goals feel more effortless, it probably means your goals and the activities helping you reach these goals are more consistent with how you see yourself, who you are in the present moment, and with what motivates you most. This in turn will enable you to feel like you come up against fewer obstacles and feel more satisfied.
