For most people, it is hard to lose weight. It is also hard to keep it off once we lose it. Here is how you can do both.
1: Set yourself a goal to lose those unwanted pounds. Write it down and refer to it often. Do not set unrealistic goals, make them so you have a reasonable chance to attain them.
Make a list of the reasons you are going to lose those extra pounds. Is it for your health? Do you want to look better? Write it down and keep it with your goals.
2: Once you have your list, what can you do to start seeing the results you are after? Believe that you can get these results. You will stay on track if you believe you can achieve the results you want. Once you reach your first goal, your next one will be easier. By staying focused you will see the weight start to leave.
3: Start keeping track of what you are eating. The weight is easier to put on than it is to lose. Instead of having a second helping at dinner, try some fresh vegetables or fruit. They will give you some vitamins and minerals that you need and help control your hunger. Drink plenty of water. It helps you feel full and you will eat less.
4: Get a friend to talk to about your weight loss goals. Having someone to help will make you more likely to succeed. By following these simple tips you will get the results you are after.
Summary: Write down your reasons for losing weight and set your goals. Keep them reasonable and they will be more attainable. Believe in yourself and that you can reach your desired weight. Start watching what you are eating. By changing a few things you will see the difference. Get a friend or family member you can talk too about your decision to lose weight. It will help a lot.
