Another new year, another diet plan? If losing weight hasn’t worked out before, it’s time to look at why – and make 2017 the year you break the cycle


If your plans for the new year include losing weight, getting fitter and feeling healthier, we’re with you all the way. But we understand, too, that there’s a good chance you’ve been here before and your efforts may not have been successful in the past. So why should this year be any different?

The key to success is to identify your motivation – or reason – for wanting to lose weight. You will then have something definite to refer back to whenever you lose the will to continue. ‘If you have a history of dieting unsuccessfully, your mind may have attached negative feelings to losing weight, such as stress, boredom or feeling isolated and lonely,’ explains clinical hypnotherapist and weight-loss expert Georgia Foster. ‘So your mind is already scared and predicting failure before you’ve even started.’

That’s why identifying a positive motivation is the best start for healthier, happier weight loss. ‘From there, you need to learn to think about it from a space of calm and logic,’ says Georgia. Think specifics: what might be different when you lose weight? How will you feel? What will you be able to do that you can’t right now?
