How Losing 60 Pounds Changed My Life, From Tory Johnson (video)

Can you really equate weight loss with happiness? Career expert and author Tory Johnson[1] told me that she has experienced new kinds of happiness — both little things and big things — since she has dropped excess pounds. Tory told me that she is overjoyed when she walks into a dressing room and the clothes are too big. She also divulged that before her weight loss, she hadn’t been to the doctor for 10 years to avoid a lecture about her weight. Once she began her weight loss journey, she made an appointment and got a full physical. When the doctor called and said she was in good health, it was one of the happiest days in her life!

For more advice on getting slim in a healthy way, see Tory’s weight loss tips:

  • Distract Yourself From Food

    Dont grab for a snack every time you feel hungry. Sometimes, going for a walk will take your mind off of food and the hunger will disappear.

  • Beware Of Low-Fat Foods

    Foods that are marketed as low-fat are typically loaded with sugar, which means theyre high in carbohydrates. Avoid them at all costs!

  • Avoid Fake Foods

    Eliminate packaged foods from your diet and dont eat anything that contains ingredients you cant pronounce. Focus on preparing fresh foods instead.

  • Become Mentally Committed

    Decide that certain things are non-negotiable when youre trying to lose weight. If cheat days lead you into a spiral of unhealthy eating, dont allow yourself to take them. If you are rewarding eating healthy with bad foods, it is akin to an alcoholic celebrating a month of sobriety with a beer.

  • Tune Out Everyone Around You

    Friends and family will often push food on you when youre starting a diet. Most people have good intentions, but you have to stand your ground. Eat healthy and avoid having that extra serving because of peer pressure.

  • Avoid Self-Sabotage

    If youre sneaking out for a midnight snack, take a pause and reflect on something else besides food. Painting your nails is one tactic that will give you a few moments to think, and prevent you from reaching into a bag of chips.

  • Get Your Family Involved

    While you shouldnt force your family into participating in your new lifestyle, its good to keep an open dialogue about your weight loss. They may not be on board with eating healthier and ramping up their exercise right away, but once they see you succeeding, they may join in.

  • Bring Snacks When You Travel

    Instead of raiding the airport newsstand for candy bars, bring your own healthy treats when traveling. Pay attention to portion size its best to carry little packages that contain one serving so youre not tempted to overeat.

  • Know Before You Go

    If youre going out to eat, look at the menu beforehand and figure out what youre going to order. Once youre at the restaurant, stick to your guns! It doesnt matter what anyone else orders you dont want to go home feeling guilty for getting derailed from your diet.

  • Day One Can Be Anytime

    If you slip up and get off track, pick yourself right back up. Even if youve indulged in a calorie-packed meal, your diet is not completely ruined. Day one can start any day.

  • Discover Your Motivation

    Why is it so important to lose weight right now? Figure out the reason youre motivated to get in shape and put reminders everywhere.

  • Get Over The Plateau

    Stick to it you cant go back to your old ways. Eat a little bit less and step up your exercise a little bit more. Sometimes it just takes a little bit of movement to get the momentum going.

  • Focus On Your Power In The Process

    Remind yourself that you are in control of what you put into your mouth. Nobody is coming to rescue you. Realize that when you falter, you have no one to blame except yourself and when you triumph, you have yourself to thank.

  • Dont Play The Blame Game

    There are a million excuses and rationalizations for accepting an unhealthy weight, but these wont take the pounds off. Stop putting the blame on other people and take ownership by focusing on making positive changes to your body.
