Congratulations!!! You have made your health and body a priority for 30 days. Aren’t you amazed how quickly it’s gone? I wonder how you are feeling physically, mentally and emotionally? (It would be lovely to hear from you on the forum.) I hope you will spend a little time thinking about what you have learnt and what has benefited you most! Go through that list you wrote and tick off everything that has changed for the better… and allow yourself to feel smug for a while!
I hope you’ll forgive me if I change the celebratory mood slightly and give you a warning. When we have a set target such as a 30 day diet, losing weight for a specific occasion like a wedding, a baby, or to get into a smaller outfit, we often lose complete focus once that goal has been achieved. I know of people who lost 6 stone (38 kgs) to fall pregnant and within a year of the baby being born, have put it all back on!
Be careful of the “all or nothing” thinking ie. I’ve been so good for 30 days, I deserve to let go and do whatever I want! Sadly it’s much easier to put on weight than to lose it so I’d like to encourage you to pause for a while to think about where you want to go from here.
Your body is clean, is healthy, is working better than it has for a while and it would like you to keep going. You have created some good habits. Why not capitalise on all the benefits and keep the momentum going? The next 30 days will be gone before you know it too!
Let us know what you decide!
