SUCCEED by tracking your progress and by asking, “What’s Next?”
To achieve permanent weight loss, it is important to understand that the idea of maintenance is a giant myth. In truth, it is just another word for plateau, which means that your journey never really ends. In order for a program to be sustainable beyond your initial weight loss goal, it MUST be adaptable to your lifestyle. The fundamentals of your plan (logging your foods, staying active, and tracking your progress) should always be a part of your daily routine. However, when you’ve traveled from point A to point Z, and you’re closing in on your ultimate goal weight, it’s time to ask, “What’s next,” and identify a new set of performance-based goals that will excite and motivate you to keep moving forward. Then you can START working toward these new goals, and the START • SIMPLIFY • SUCCEED cycle will effectively replace the old negative cycles that sabotaged your progress in the past.
