This is the perfect time to start fresh and new with your weightloss efforts.  Let’s look at what ways you can make 2013 the best year ever. Here are my 10 tips for a healthy you:

1. Take your life into your own hands and be responsible for your actions. Take a fresh new look at how you live your life. What areas do you think need improving? If you want to make changes to your health then you must change some of the habits that have caused you to be unhealthy in the first place. Be honest with yourself and let go of whatever is holding you back.

2. It seems so easy to gain weight but when you try to lose the weight it can seem a huge task. No matter how difficult you think it is, being overweight is harder. I guarantee that it is worth the effort in the end if you want to be rid of those extra rolls and bulges. You deserve to have unlimited energy and good health so start now!

3. Set realistic goals for 2013 that are achievable. You may need to make better food choices, cut down on your portion sizes and give up some unhealthy habits that have been weighing you down. I guarantee what you will gain from being healthier is worth the effort.

4. Habits may need to be looked at and reassessed. What do you need to change to be able to move forward with your healthy goals for 2013? If you don’t make any changes, nothing will change.

5. Look at ways to keep motivated so you don’t give up. Look at the positive things that you will gain instead of focusing on the negative. Surround yourself with like minded people and take things day by day, bit by bit, kilo by kilo.

6. Set your mind to whatever it is you want to achieve. If this is the year that you want to lose weight and get healthy then you must change your thinking and actions. If you do what a healthy person does you can and you will become one.

7. Remember no one is perfect so if you fall down pick yourself up and start again. It’s when you give up that you fail.

8. If you want to have a toned body then you must make time for exercise in your week. Being a healthy person is not only about what you eat but also how active you are so make this a top priority. Aim for at least 4-5 times a week as this will help you reach your goal weight. If you are a busy person then write in your diary the days and times you will work out otherwise it may not happen.

9. Stop talking about it and just do it! If you believe that you can achieve your goal then you can, but if you have little or no faith in your ability then you are doomed to fail. Forget all those failed diets from the past, today is what counts. Look to your future with good intentions, I know you can do it.

10. Make 2013 your year to be the best you can be. All you have to do is get started and don’t stop until you reach where you want to go. Make this your year to shine.

  • Here it is 2015 and I’m still trying to achieve good results here. Ah well they say to make it a lifelong commitment, not a passing fad, so at least I’m still trying


  • You know I started off on the right foot this year and then a health issue stopped me from exercising as i had wished. But i stuck to my diet. Then I had to see a specialist at the Hosptial who rudely told me i was overweight. I had actually lost 2.6kg but felt so deflated…sometimes people are just plain rude.


  • Great to plan and easy to do achievements, thanks for sharing this.


  • Really good ideas in here yes its all about taking it one step at a time and having a plan and if a day doesn’t go so well that’s ok just keep moving.


  • I might plan this for 2015.


  • A plan and steps to achieve the result you are after always makes a difference. As does continually referring to it so you stay on track.


  • When it comes to exercise, I have the best of intentions, but unfortunately life often gets in the way of plans I make. Mind you, I’ve been a lot happier since I’ve stopped beating myself up for what I don’t do, rather than acknowledging what I do achieve.


  • Be the best you can be. Works for every day.


  • I think it is trying to keep the goals realistic I have problems with, I always seem to want more than I can achieve


  • Okay. so maybe not 2013…


  • we can all be lazy when it comes to exercise, its knowing where to start – strength training for all ages is a good way, your local community centre might have a class. What about a walking group, keep fit and have good natter, make new friends with similar goals.


  • Lots of great advice to get fit.


  • and also in 2014 too


  • Excellent advice – particularly number: 7 – Nobody is perfect , if you fall down just pick yourself back up and start again!


  • Thanks for sharing, it was a great read.
