7 Tips for losing 10 pounds in one month

Commit to the process, not the goal.

You’ll lose weight by following a process, not envisioning a goal.

If you can’t commit to the process, you won’t lose weight. So commit to sticking with it for 30 days. Think about it: You can do almost anything for 30 days.

Embrace the power of “I don’t.”

Believe it or not, using the phrase “I don’t” is up to eight times more effective than saying “I can’t.” It’s more than twice as effective as a simple “no.”

The Journal of Consumer Research ran a number of studies on this difference in terminology. One of the studies split participants into three groups:

  • Group 1 was told that anytime they felt tempted to lapse on their goals, they should “just say no.” This group was the control group, because they were given no specific strategy.
  • Group 2 was told that anytime they felt tempted to lapse on their goals, they should implement the “can’t” strategy. For example, “I can’t miss my workout today.”
  • Group 3 was told that anytime they felt tempted to lapse on their goals, they should implement the “don’t” strategy. For example, “I don’t miss workouts.”

The results?
