Trans­form your­self into a health­ier, hap­pier per­son

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Fiona Pen­dani

What’s your mo­ti­va­tion?

If you want to lose some weight and be­come fit­ter and health­ier but haven’t yet got the mo­ti­va­tion to take the first step, how can you get your­self “in the zone”?

Look­ing at suc­cess from fam­ily, friends or col­leagues could be a good start.

If you know some­one that’s made a dif­fer­ence to their health and their out­look by los­ing some weight then have a chat with them and ask them how their life has changed and what keeps them mo­ti­vated.

Read­ing suc­cess sto­ries ei­ther in the news­pa­pers, on so­cial media such as Face­book, or in our Weight Watch­ers mag­a­zine can be a big in­spi­ra­tion.

See­ing “be­fore” and “af­ter” pho­to­graphs of nor­mal peo­ple who have taken that first step and have been trans­formed into a hap­pier, health­ier, younger look­ing ver­sion of them­selves can re­ally make you want to make that change for your­self.

Vi­su­alise your­self feel­ing health­ier, hap­pier and with more energy.

Try imag­in­ing what suc­cess will look like for you in the fu­ture, imag­ine how much weight you will have lost and how many clothes sizes you will have gone down.

Imag­ine what you want your fu­ture to look like, is there and event com­ing up that you would like to look and feel good for?

Although I hate to men­tion Christ­mas in Septem­ber, think about how you want to feel at your work’s night out or on Xmas day at a fam­ily party.

Imag­ine your­self in a party dress or suit in a smaller size. You can do it.

If you need some help come along and join one of our great Weight Watch­ers meet­ings where you will meet peo­ple who have changed their lives for the bet­ter.

I my­self get in­spi­ra­tion ev­ery week from my lovely meet­ing mem­bers who have some re­ally fan­tas­tic suc­cess sto­ries. Suc­cess breeds suc­cess.

We’ve got two fan­tas­tic healthy weight watch­ers recipes for you to en­joy this week......
