Many people view weight loss as an ongoing chore whereby you miss out on all the good stuff. But losing weight is a positive life step that needs a positive mental attitude and every day should be celebrated.
Here are 20 ways to make sure you have a wonderful day and feel good while you’re losing weight.
Treat yourself to a new nail polish and give yourself a pedicure. Choose a crazy colour that will make you smile when you take your socks off.
Make yourself and someone else’s day by phoning a friend you haven’t spoken to in ages. Set aside some time and catch up on all the news.
Buy that outfit you’ve had your eye on for weeks. There’s something very exciting about making spontaneous decisions: especially when it comes to spending money!
Buy a book and give yourself a whole uninterrupted hour of sofa time. Losing yourself in a good book is a great way to relax and unwind.
Cook you and your partner a special meal. Set the table and take the time to talk and eat at a leisurely pace.
Have a long, hot bath with all your favourite pampering products.
When you get dressed in the morning choose an outfit that you know you look good in. It might be something that you’ve recently bought, or an old favourite that fits again now that you’ve shed a few pounds.
Treat yourself to a bouquet of flowers. There’s no need to wait until someone else buys them for you – flowers are an instant mood-enhancer and they’ll brighten up your house and your day.
