This episode discusses the common challenge of starting a weight loss journey at the beginning of the year, but struggling to sustain the initial efforts. The first week of a weight loss journey should be focused on recovery and rest, rather than trying to jump into a strict diet or exercise plan right away. Learning from setbacks and mistakes and being able to get back on track quickly, are key to long-term weight loss success. Taking time to reflect on the previous week and identify what went well and what could be improved can help support making a plan for the next week. Reviewing daily progress and rehearsing the next day’s plan in order to stay on track and make progress towards weight loss goals is recommended.
