Show Yourself Patience and Kindness
While eating healthy is important for fat loss, the most important thing is to be patient on your journey. Staying consistent with your plan in reaching your goals will work, sports dietitian Leanne Ward said, but it won't happen overnight. Enjoy the journey; celebrate every pound lost and every nonscale victory, like moving up to a higher dumbbell weight or feeling more energetic to play with your kids.
Speak kindly to yourself — be your own best cheerleader. This also means doing what makes you happy (like baking) and giving your body what you know it needs (like cake!). Don't beat yourself up for having a slip-up; just move on. Believe you can do this, be proud of how far you've come, and love yourself for making the choice to take care of you. You can do this!
