Losing weight and keeping it off can seem like an unattainable goal. We start with all the enthusiasm and motivation in the world, and then get discouraged when we feel the soreness from our first workout. How are some people able to succeed?
When you have decided to lose weight, the first step is to identify your specific goals. Is your aim to fit into some clothes that you already have stored in your wardrobe that are now too small, or do you want to drop a dress size so that you can go shopping for new clothes? Do you have a specific goal weight that you want to reach? Do you think you would feel better if you had more energy and a healthy lifestyle?
Stay on top of all of your progress. Make sure you check your weight only once a week. Weighing yourself every day or more than once a week can contribute to anxiety if you are not seeing results. Write down everything you eat and the number of calories each food item or drink contains. Make sure you also list any drinks and snacks. Jotting down everything we eat and drink can prevent us from making bad choices.
Don’t allow yourself to be hungry all the time. This will make you more likely to binge on unhealthy foods. Do not make this common diet mistake. Arrange your menus and snack foods in advance. Then, bring then with you when you go out. Going forward, practice the art of packing a brown bag lunch. This will slim your waistline and fatten your wallet.
A weight loss plan that incorporates both diet and exercise is best. It is important that you take part in workouts that you enjoy a minimum of five times a week. Finding the exercises that you enjoy will help you push past those old excuses about not having enough time. Maybe you like chilling with your friends. Play some basketball with them! Are you focused on having a good time? Hit a Jazzercise class! Do you escape life by going out into nature? Hit those hiking trails!
Take all the junk food out of your kitchen. If you only buy foods that are good for you there will be less temptation at home. If you get rid of foods that are unhealthy from your house, you will not have access to any of those snacks that add to your weight.
Do you have a friend that wants to lose weight too? If so, set up goals together and be there to encourage each other when the other is lacking in motivation. Your support network can help you push forward when you feel like quitting. The ones around you can help you stay on track.
