In today's world, each and everyone's dream would be to look slim and fit. I would like to share my weight loss journey with you. My goal was to come out of my obesity range and become healthy. The first important step to losing weight is self-realization. First of all, I accepted that I was obese and overweight. I made a decision that I needed to work out every day to lose weight. Then I wrote my goal on the sticky notes(to lose 5 lbs) and stuck it on my Living room wall. Then I started my exercise 6 days a week. When I started initially, after 3 or 4 days, I got bored with exercising daily. I was really in need of some motivation to do it consistently. So I began to write it in sticky notes to track my daily activity. If I completed my activity, I wrote my name with the date. If I forgot or missed doing my physical activity, I wrote: "Didn't Do the activity " in the notes. I got obsessed with the sticky, and I made sure that I exercised daily. I did my workouts for six days in a week. Sticky Notes truly motivated me to do it daily. Fitness became a real addiction. I started with low-intensity workouts, and I began to change my diets. I lost some pounds, and that drove me to do high-intensity exercise. So far I have lost 20 lbs (10 Kg). And I am still enjoying my fitness journey. One of my long-term goals was losing weight. I have accomplished one of my goals.
Life is full of ups and downs, and from all those ups and downs we will learn something to improve the quality of our life. Similarly, we have some individual goals and dreams to improve oneself day by day. Without goals, our life will become meaningless. But how to achieve all our goals??? Each and everyone will have some kinds of goals like personal or professional goals.
I will share with you one simple trick that I used. Write down all your goals and keep it in front of you, where you can see it daily.
You may think it's funny, but it’s true. Let me explain how writing your goals will help you to accomplish it. The mind is classified into two types Conscious mind and subconscious mind. The conscious mind will analyze, think, and plan, it’s a short term memory. The subconscious mind is a long term memory. It will have emotions and feelings, habits, relationship patterns, addiction, creativity, spiritual connection, and intuition. In simple terms, I can say that if you write anything, a conscious mind will think logically to achieve it. The subconscious mind will execute your written statement to achieve your goals without thinking logically. When you start to write it, your brain signal will read it, and you can save it in your subconscious mind, and it will help you to achieve your dreams. The Subconscious mind works for 24/7. Even though you sleep during night time, it will work. Even your conscious mind may forget your goals and dreams after a few days, but it will stay in your subconscious because it has long-term memory.
Start to write your goals and track it. Be it professional goals like to get a good job, to learn some new technology and some personal goals like to lose weight. Write down your professional goals on board anywhere near your desk and personal goals on sticky notes and place it where you can see those goals at least once in a day.
I usually write all my goals and will stick it on walls. If you don't like sticky notes, buy a whiteboard and write all your goals on the board once you achieve it. Try to strike it.
Hope by reading this blog you will get some motivation to try this. I hope your dreams come true. All the best!!!
