Even if you’ve already made up your mind to lose weight before, your doctors insist that you do it now for your heart’s sake. As a matter of fact, you’ve got added incentive since it’s your life on the line.
With that in mind, here are a few added pointers to get you started on the road to health.
Making the decision to lose weight through an exercise regimen requires commitment and perseverance. Many have fallen by the wayside of dieting and exercising just because they haven’t prepared themselves mentally for it.
Make a to-do list of short-term weekly goals, along with a prize at the end of each just to psych yourself up with your successes. Report your improvement to your cardiology doctors at American Fork for added encouragement.
You can motivate yourself further by getting new sports gear, outfit, and equipment. Now that you’re outfitted properly, you’ll find it harder to break your routine considering what you had to pay to get them. Hang up your exercise attire where you can see it as a constant reminder.
An additional incentive: buy yourself a gym outfit that’s one to two sizes smaller and aim to wear it to the gym someday. Just make sure that your cardiologist has approved the exercise regimen that you selected.
Find a good gym or reputable sports club that offers your approved exercise program. Sure, you can buy yourself an exercise machine and do it at home but knowing that the people you meet at the club will expect you to arrive at a certain date can encourage you even more.
If you need to, hire a professional trainer for expert assistance. They can also regularly remind you of your scheduled sessions.
Health is wealth, and that’s a fact. For your health to improve stick to your given regimen and keep moving forward. Look towards the day your heart is finally healthier and realize you’ve done the right thing.
