When you think of weight loss goals, you think of all the things you'll need to cut out to drop those pounds. No more bread, no more cheese, no more wine, no more cookies, no more happy hours, no more dining out. Friday nights at the gym. Bed at 8pm. You imagine your life being chiseled down to that of a hamster on a wheel with nothing but seeds and water to live off of. Christine Sokaluk was no exception. She tried every trend in the book to whittle her waist down, but to no avail. "I'd be so eager to start a new weight loss program, feeling like nothing could stop me, only to find myself at the drive-thru ordering my usual super-sized meal 30 minutes later," explained the 38-year-old.

"I decided that I'd take on one new healthy habit every four weeks."

Feeling encouraged that her first step worked, she then went on to incorporate more protein into her diet to boost her metabolism. Twenty pounds down in three months, she felt empowered to take on another goal: exercise. "Now, I'm boxing twice a week for 90 minutes and doing YouTube cardio workouts daily," she said. And now, with eight months past, she has lost a total of 60 pounds and continues to feel encouraged to implement new goals to help her continue on her weight loss journey. weight loss Have you ever found that when it comes to weight loss, slow and steady wins the race?
