Sometimes we think achieving lasting weight loss isn’t in the cards for us. Good intentions aren’t always enough to overcome the frustration of those sore muscles from your first workouts. What are the obstacles preventing you from losing weight?
The first step you should take when trying to lose weight is setting a goal for yourself. Having a solid, attainable goal in mind when you begin a weight loss program can help you stay focused and motivated.
Each week, you should chart your progress, so you know if you are improving. Be sure to write in your weight loss journal frequently and weigh yourself only once a week. List the foods you eat in a daily food diary that is part of your journal. Writing down what you put into your body will make you more aware of your choices, inspiring you to make healthier decisions.
The need to eat while away from home is inevitable. Prepare a weekly menu so that you will know what you are going to eat ahead of time. Get ready in advance. Pack some snack or a nutritious lunch to take with you anywhere you go. Imagine how much money you can save by not dining out. Success is easy when you make plans and stick to them.
Take a two-pronged approach to weight loss by combining your diet with an exercise regime. Plan a workout routine that is certain to keep your motivation level high by selecting a particular activity you love. Whether you join a sports team, sign up for some dance lessons, or find ways to work out with friends, it’s important to keep your workouts entertaining. Make sure you are creative with your exercise endeavors.
Few people follow this advice. Have a cleaning party – invite your friends over to help you get rid of the junk food in your fridge and pantry by taking it home with them. You will not be able to go grab those unhealthy foods if they are not there. Always have plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, and other healthy snacks on hand. Keep unhealthy items out of your home, because if something is not there, you have no opportunity to eat it.
Invite a friend to exercise with you. It is easy to put off what needs to be done when you are only accountable to yourself. When you have a friend in the exercise mix, you’ll tend to be more motivated to persevere through tiredness and frustration. You an rely on each other for emotional support, motivation and ideas to make your weight loss more successful.
