Many people are excited when first starting out on a weight loss routine. Sometimes the long term goal just seems too elusive, and the tendency is to give up too soon. Some people can lose weight and manage to keep the weight off. How do they do it? One wonders if there is a secret to this amazing accomplishment. What is it?
Get started on your weight loss journey by identifying what you want to achieve. Would you enjoy feeling great in your clothes again or, better yet, shopping for new clothes that are several sizes smaller then your current size? What are your weight loss goals? Is it important for you to be in shape and have more energy?
Keep a weekly record of your weight loss. Keep track of your weight so you can compare it weekly. In another section of the same book, keep a journal of the food that you are eating. By jotting down your food intake on a daily basis, you are more likely to stick with the program because you are holding yourself responsible. The fact that you are writing it down will decrease the likelihood that you will desire it.
If you wait until you are starving, you may be more likely to make bad food decisions. Make sure you avoid this problem by bringing healthy foods along with you. When you take your lunch you can make much healthier choices than eating out at a restaurant or diner. Packing your own lunch lets you maintain control over the calories you consume and keeps you from having to face the temptations prevalent when dining out. Preparing your own food is cheaper than eating out, so you can save calories as well as money.
It is very important to eat healthy and exercise. It is important that you exercise three times a week or more. If you cannot commit to exercising, then pick an activity that you can stick with for the long term. Try to get your friends involved by asking them to walk with you. Short hikes on a nature trail or even just a walk through the neighborhood park can satisfy your thirst for the great outdoors and get you some exercise! If you love to dance, why not give a dance class a whirl and practice some new steps.
Get rid of all the unhealthy food from your kitchen. Remember, you will not be able to eat food which isn’t present, so keeping your kitchen cupboards stocked with only healthy foods can help you to keep your body fit and lean. The harder it is to eat unhealthy food, the less appealing it will be, and the less you will consume.
A great support network can go a long way in helping you to stay focused on your weight loss plan. Reach out to your family and friends and ask them to encourage you along the away. Having friends cheer you on when you are ready to give up is a great benefit. Turn to your friends for moral support when you want to open that bag of potato chips! Wouldn’t you want to do the same for your friends?
