Getting Ready for the Wheyless 6-Week Challenge

Been meaning to start on Wheyless or some kind of health program but just can’t seem to find the drive to take the first step?  We’re here to help.  Our Wheyless 6-week challenge is set to start on Monday 17th October 2016 and we’re gearing up to help you all the way through.

 

What do you need to do?

Firstly, sign up here:

Then, stock up!  If you don’t already have some Wheyless, place your order here:

 

That’s it, you’re ready to get started!  So what’s next?  Below, I’ve listed a few steps to help give you a really good start and get the most out of the next six or so weeks.  You can follow as many or as few of these steps as you like.  Our aim is not to overwhelm you but to prepare and set you up with some tools that will not only help you get control of your weight for these next weeks but also the months and years ahead.

 

Preparation

 

Tips for a great start:

 

Log your starting point:

  • Take a good, honest look at yourself in the mirror and get a clear image of what you really look like to begin with.  You may realise that you actually don’t need to lose as much weight as you think - we often imagine that we are bigger than we really are and remember that no matter what you think you look like, you are amazing!
  • Take a before photo - ideally get someone else to take a photo of you front on and side on in a spot that you’ll remember so that you can take progress shots in exactly the same location.  Wear something comfortable but something that you’ll be able to gauge your progress in and wear the same thing each time you take a photo. 
  • Take some body measurements:  particularly your waist measurement.  Bust/chest, hip, thigh and upper arm measurements will also be helpful for you to use for comparison.
  • Log your daily eating plan and exercise activity for a few days before you get started.  This may help you see where your main challenges are so that you can prepare for the times of the day that you are hungriest or just get the munchies!!

 

Set some goals:

They don’t have to be epic, just jot down a few points.  They do need to be specific, realistic and achievable.  For example:

  • If you are not currently exercising:  “I will walk for 15 minutes, four times per week.”  (if you are already exercising then tailor it a little ahead of what you’re doing now). 
  • “I will have one extra serve of vegetables as a snack every day.”
  • “I will turn off the television when I eat.”
  • “I will drink a glass of water every morning when I wake up and carry a water bottle with me throughout the day.”

 

Plan something to aim for:

We often get motivated into action when we have an event like a wedding, holiday, Christmas party or school reunion coming up but if you don’t have an event like that in your diary for December already, plan something. Arrange a catch up with friends or book a nice dinner out somewhere.  Organise a weekend away.  Plan something that you can really look forward to and want to feel great for.

 

Pick out an outfit: 

Do you have a dress, skirt, suit or some outfit that you just can’t squeeze into anymore but you’d love to wear again - be realistic about what you can achieve in your timeframe - set yourself up to succeed, but keep it somewhere visible in your bedroom or take a photo of it and put it on the fridge, so you’ll remember what you’re aiming for and try it on every couple of weeks to spur you on.

 

Clear the temptation out of your fridge and pantry and stock up on the good stuff:

If you keep snacks in your house that you know you will reach for in weak moments, get rid of them and stock up on fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables. 

 

Stock up on Fruit and Veg

 

Set up a support network:

We’ll be here for you as well as others doing the challenge but it’s also helpful to have some friends and family on board to help when you need them.  Remember that not everyone will be the right person to support you.  Think of who you may be able to ask to go for a walk with, who you may be able to cook with.  If you have a group of friends who you regularly go out to eat with, don’t stay away from them but look for a restaurant or cafe to eat out that has healthier options for you so you don’t feel like you’re missing out. Otherwise, you could take up an art class with them or organise to go to a local pilates, yoga or dance class with them.  You’d still get a good giggle and you won’t sabotage your efforts.

 

We will have more tips for you throughout the challenge in weekly mail outs and on Facebook or through emails and phone calls so don’t worry.  If you are feeling a bit overwhelmed, don’t run away!  Remember, Wheyless has been described by some customers as willpower in a tub!  The ingredients in Wheyless shakes were included specifically to help you get the results you’re after without the uphill battle so our advice to anyone who wants to lose weight is to just get started on the shakes! Even without changing a single other thing you eat or adding in any exercise you should feel the difference within a couple of weeks.   

As always, we have to say that for anyone with a medical condition or who has any concerns, please discuss following the Wheyless Weight Management Program with your healthcare practitioner.

 

We look forward to getting to know you better over the coming weeks.
