THE EX­PERT VIEW

‘De­cid­ing to make such a big change is a pos­i­tive step, but it can soon be de­mo­ti­vat­ing if change doesn’t hap­pen quickly enough,’ says Amory. ‘ Break­ing it down into small steps is a great way to main­tain fo­cus. Imag­ine a lad­der with your main goal at the top, then make each rung a smaller goal to hit on your way to it. Ev­ery five steps, give your­self a re­ward, some­thing that will mo­ti­vate you to do more.’

‘ It’s a well-used mantra,’ says Bond, ‘but small steps make a big dif­fer­ence, es­pe­cially with weight loss. Mas­ter­ing a small step means you’ll quickly move on to the next one and be­fore you know it change will have oc­curred.’
