2015 is approaching fast and, as well as Christmas, your thoughts might be turning to New Year’s Resolutions.
On January 1st 2015 some 20 million people in the UK* will resolve to lose weight, drop a dress size, shape up or get fit.
At Slim & Save we believe that New Year is a great time to consider a weight-loss journey and ‘Healthy Life Plan’. On New Year’s Day, we want you to have the confidence and the knowledge of how to create some goals that you can really achieve.
This January 1st, millions of people will start their quest to give up vices like chocolate or smoking. Millions more will take a long look at their relationships, finances, jobs and habits. However, how many people will actually do something positive to change them? Even if they plan to make a change, according to the BBC by February 15th most people will have started smoking again or have cancelled their gym membership and gone back to their old ways.
This feature explores how 2015 can really be a new beginning. If you are considering New Year’s Resolutions then a Healthy Life Plan may be an interesting option. A Life Plan can increase the likelihood that your desire for change will actually translate into positive, permanent, change.
Over the years, if you’ve ever made a New Year’s Resolution, chances are you’ve also broken one – or two! Why then are New Year’s Resolutions so easy to break? Some people think that New Year’s Resolutions are negative because they usually mean deprivation – i.e. something you have to stop doing or something you have to give up e.g. smoking, chocolate etc.
At Slim & Save we believe that Life Plans are positive. They are not about giving up; they are about starting something new, like starting a weight-loss journey with Slim & Save. Life Plans are about making some simple, small changes to enhance your life for the better.
Whatever you want to change or achieve, you must first set goals. Probably the most common goal is the wish to improve yourself somehow e.g.:
If you can develop a Life Plan then you can work on a path to reach your goals. If you have time now then maybe grab a pen and paper and jot down what you would like to change about yourself…….
The next part of your plan should be the timescale that you want to make your change e.g. within one year or by 2020 etc.

Louise Resolved to Lose Weight with Slim & Save
One Christmas Louise decided to begin a weight-loss journey with Slim & Save. She successfully lost 111lbs and went from a BMI of 41 to a healthy BMI of 24.
Louse was upset at Christmas when she couldn’t buy nice clothes anywhere. At 5ft 4 being a size 20/22 she made the choice that she had to do something positive in the New Year.
Louise’s husband was incredibly supportive and Louise loved the cost, convenience and flexibility of Slim & Save. Louise said, “I didn’t need expensive counseling sessions to tell me I love eating. I love the fact it is all sorted out online. The staff, the forum and the Facebook page have been fantastic for me, any questions have been easily reconciled.”
