In some people, the fat loss journey seems like cake until they hit their goal or milestone. Then, like the flip of a switch, things become incredibly difficult. Is there a way to make things easier when we reach our goals?
Yes we can make things easier, but it all comes down to mindset.
Dieting isn’t a temporary change in behavior, but rather an establishment of lifelong habits. You can’t just reach your goal weight and be done, you need to keep moving forward and working to accomplish new goals. Sure, you won’t be focusing on weight per se anymore, but it would be wise to set another intention related to health or fitness.
This has a lot to do with dopamine, which is released when you accomplish goals and motivates you to keep doing those actions. Setting small, achievable goals can help keep you motivated to work towards the larger goal in life, which may be maintaining weight loss.
You also need to keep in mind that the fading effect bias plays a role in weight maintenance. The fading effect bias is the tendency to forget negative consequences of actions over time. You need to keep those motivators at the front of your mind so this natural bias doesn’t come into play. We give some ideas on how to we would approach the fading effect bias in the video!
