Step Back from the everyday details of your life and look at the big picture.
What does winning at weight loss or career transition feel like? What has worked for you in the past? How will you overcome any obstacles you’re facing?
Step Forward into each new day.
Accomplish one task in your job search whether it is researching opportunities, networking or writing a resume. Act upon one daily weight loss strategy such as portion control, keeping a food/exercise diary or moving more.
Step Out of Your Comfort Zone with support.
Making life changes is tough. I lost 90 pounds, but it didn’t happen overnight and I still struggle to maintain my weight. When my twins were born I decided not to return to my career in Human Resources. Instead I started CareerFit Mom. I now help other moms achieve their dreams for a better body and a more fulfilling career.
It took commitment, planning and time to safely lose the weight I gained during pregnancy and to create my comeback career. Structuring my goals into simple steps made it easier to achieve lasting changes.
You can meet your goals by taking small, manageable steps. Allow setbacks by learning from them and moving forward. Forgive yourself for lapses and re-lapses – they happen to everyone. Both weight loss and job search can be incredibly isolating and disheartening so make sure you engage your family and friends in your plan. You’ll need their support as you hit bumps along the way.
Keep taking small steps and you’ll be sure to find success. I believe in you!
