    Make Your Own Salad Dressing – Weight Loss Tip

    Bottled dressings can be a calorie nightmare. Two tablespoons of blue cheese dressing contain about 140 calories along with 14 grams of fat. An alternative is to mix your own dressing together. Mix two parts lemon juice to one part olive oil. Put your dressing into a spray bottle and spray on your salad for better portion control.

    Be Realistic With Your Goals

    Be Realistic With Your Goals

    It is possible to reach your big weight loss goal. However, it is important to start off with a smaller goal first. This is why. If your initial goal is too large, it will take longer to reach, eroding your confidence and motivation. My initial goal was to lose 30 pounds. After I did this, I had the confidence and motivation to set another goal. Finally, at the end I lost 50 pounds total.

    The initial key is to set a goal that you know you can reach. Then reach that goal and set another, building on your previous success. These are the stepping stones to weight loss.

    Ways to Cut Down on Sugar

    Whether they will admit it or not, Americans love their sugar, consuming on average around 95 pounds a year.

    As most of us know, too much added sugar can cause health issues like tooth decay, obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. It is also the source of empty calories, which means that it contains no nutritional value.

      How can you reduce your sugar intake you may be asking?

    • Don’t put it into food or drinks like coffee, tea, or cereal.
    • Reduce your sugary drink intake.
    • Avoid fruit juice, and if you do drink them, make sure that they are 100 percent fruit juice.
    • Avoid cereals that contain sugar or labeled frosted.
    • Cut down on store bought salad dressings, ketchup, syrups, jams, jellies, and preserves.
    • Avoid canned fruit packed in syrup.
    • Reduce consumption of processed foods.
    • Avoid cookies, cake, pies, ice cream, and sweets. Replace them with fruit, as your snack.

    If you can get yourself do a few of the things above you can cut down on your sugar intake.

    How Do I Conquer Food Cravings?

    How Do I Conquer Food Cravings?

    The best way to handle food cravings is to keep yourself very busy. How busy you may be asking? Keep yourself so busy that you don’t think about food.

    Like a lot of people, I tend to eat when I am bored. I tend to notice my hunger when I am bored. However, I notice that when I am very busy, I don’t have time to think about food. Therefore, I always try to keep myself busy. I try to keep myself so busy that I don’t have time to think about food, let alone have cravings.

    The second option is to eat lower calorie foods. When I crave sugar, I will eat plain yogurt with fresh fruit mixed in or eat some sweet fruit, like pineapple. This gets rid of the cravings, and my weight thanks me.

    Therefore, two options for conquering food cravings are to keep yourself busy or replace the unhealthy craving with a healthier one.

    As a side note, it is okay to give in to your cravings periodically as long as you keep the portion size small. Additionally don’t totally give up your favorite foods, it will do nothing but drive you batty.

    Make A Daily To-Do List to Get Thinner

    A good thing to do to help you stay focused on your weight loss goal is to create a daily to-do list. This simple idea can benefit you when starting on your weight loss and fitness journey.
    Changing habits can be difficult. However, when you have a to-do list, you have written down what you want to do the next day.

    Having healthy foods and exercise on the top of the list will help guide your choices for the day.
    Keep it short and simple so that making the list does not become a chore.

    The night before, write down what you are going to have for breakfast, morning snack, lunch, pre-dinner snack, dinner, and after dinner snack. Additionally, add the exercise you are going to do, along with the intensity and time you are going to give it.

    Lastly, before bedtime, review your list to see how you did. Then create your list for the next day.

    Remember, when you create a list, and stick to that list, and make a habit of doing it, you will be on the road to a healthier future.

    Prepare Ahead and Watch the Weight Come Off

    A great tip for those of us with busy schedules is to plan ahead. This can be applied to both your exercising and the food you eat.

    If you don’t schedule and prepare ahead, it is very easy to acquire the bad habit of eating fast food. These choices can affect your hope of losing weight. Therefore, it is important to create a meal plan ahead of time.

    It is also important to put exercise into your schedule so that other things don’t get in the way. Once you start doing these things it is also important to stay with it.

    Therefore, if you want to lose weight remember to plan ahead.

    Technically I Agree…

    Weight Loss Excuses

    Technically I Agree…

    However, I’m selfish, and short-term about my weight, because I have excuses. I have lots of excuses. I have every excuse under the sun not to do what I know I need to do, and that is to lose weight.
    Losing weight is for other people, not me, because I have reasons, lots of them, and I am special.

    Now, it may sound ridiculous, however, that’s how many people think about losing weight, whether they are as blunt as I just was.

    If this is you, it just means that you aren’t ready yet to lose weight. It is not important to you yet. Watching TV is more important than exercising. Eating seconds is more important than your health. Just remember that when you are ready, you will be able to do it. Just don’t take too long, because time is ticking.

    Plan for Long Term Weight Loss

    Some people think that they can just lose weight and then go back to what they were doing before they lost the weight, and then magically the weight will stay off. This is far from the truth. Yes, you can ease up a bit. However, the weight loss fight is just beginning. It is important to remember, that your weight-loss journey is a long term one, and you need to plan for that. Quick diets may work for the short term. However, they are not long-term solutions. We need to look for solutions that we are willing to do long term. This will ensure success long term. Remember,

    Quick Solutions = Short Term Weight loss Success
    Long-Term Solutions = Long-Term Weight Loss Success

    If you are going to make the effort to lose weight, make it count for the long-term.
