This week’s tip is one of my favourites because it’s easy, it’s effective, and it appeals to my laaaaazy side.
And it’s brilliant at helping you achieve your weight loss goals.
What is it?
What I encourage you to do is take a photo of an item of clothing — that you REALLY want to be able to wear — that is one size smaller than you currently are.
It might be a t-shirt, a dress and pair of knickers.
What I encourage you to do is add this photo to the lock screen on your phone.
The lock screen on our smartphone is very valuable real estate because we look at our phones hundreds of times a day.
You might resist this because…
…you’ve got a picture of your children or grandchildren or your pet.
But swapping that photo of your pet, your children or grandchildren, with that item of clothing that is one size smaller than you currently are — and you really want to wear —what it does is keep your goal top of mind, which is a great place for your goal to be.
Now, this appeals to my lazy (or my efficient!) side because once you’ve set it up, the system is supporting you, every time you look at your phone.
You’re reaping the dividends, every time you pick up your phone and log in. How cool is that?
So go try it.
Go take a photo of an item of clothing that you want to wear that is one size smaller than you currently are.
Heads-up: Please don’t be tempted to go for an item of clothing several sizes smaller than you currently are.
Because that big leap can lead to perfectionist thinking (which is a self-sabotaging behaviour).
And if there’s a part of you resisting this because you’re thinking “this is way too small to make a difference!”, remember to support yourself and that small steps add up to radical change over time.
I hope you found that helpful.
