Be Consistent

Be Consistent and Lose Weight

One of the hardest things in life is to become consistent with something. However, if we want to lose weight, we will need to be consistent with doing it. We can do this by developing good habits. Habits are things that we do consistently without thinking or sometimes even realizing it. We develop habits by doing something over time. Since bad habits are usually more fun than good habits, we tend to gravitate towards them.

If we want to be consistent with doing things that allow us to lose weight, we need to want to do them. They cannot be considered a chore. They cannot be considered work. They, in reality, should be considered fun. They should be considered a game.

Think about this, when we were a child, exercise was considered as playing so we did it a lot. As adults, we consider exercise as hard work, so we avoid it. Let’s look at exercise as play, and we will want to be consistent with it.

Let’s look at finding healthier, low-calorie, great-tasting foods as a game or a challenge, and we will want to do it consistently.

If we change the way, we look at weight loss, we will work on it consistently and develop long-term habits.

Moderation to Lose Weight

Weight Loss Moderation

Weight Loss Moderation

Moderation to Lose Weight

On the temple of Apollo in Greece is inscribed words translated “moderation in all things.” Even thousands of years ago the ancient Greeks knew the value of moderation. Over the years, people have forgotten this concept. However, if we want to lose weight, we need to embrace and live this concept. Moderation is one of the keys to weight loss. Gluttony is the key to weight gain. Moderation to lose weight means balancing the foods you love with healthy foods.

Moderation means a reasonable portion size so that weight loss happens. Moderation means a scoop of ice cream not a bowl. Moderation equals weight loss. My mother-in-law, who lived to the age of 96 years old, was active and mobile until the end. She lived the rule of moderation and lived a long healthy life. If you want to lose weight and keep it off, listen to Apollo and remember to always have moderation with your eating.

Easy Way to Lose Weight | Small Changes

Easy Way to Lose Weight | Small Changes

The process of losing weight can be easy if you are persistent and patient. One sure-fire way to lose weight is to start with one meal and see how you can make it light, healthy, and enjoyable. I started with breakfast. I found a few items I enjoyed having then I rotated them. After I successfully did this for a few days, I moved to doing this with my lunch. I then work on my snacks. I decided that I would allow myself one meal to eat what I wanted, and I picked dinner. However, I reduced my portion sizes until weight came off. At the same time, I start exercising regularly. Losing weight is about balance and moderation. It is also about making changes that are acceptable to you long term. These changes can be small. Remember, many small changes can add up to big results.

Back to the Weight Loss Basics

Back to the Weight Loss Basics

The concept of losing weight is simple. It is basically taking in fewer calories than you burn. However, it is not always simple or easy implementing the basics. However, you don’t have to make it complicated. Sometimes large changes need to be made. Other times it is just a few small changes that need to be made. Either way, changes need to be made. Einstein said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” Change is required to lose weight and keep it off. If you want to lose weight get back to the basics, make the changes necessary to make it happen and get the results you deserve.

Children’s Menu – Weight Loss Tip

Children’s Menu – Weight Loss Tip

Scale, Weight Loss success

Children’s Menu

Ever since I lost 50 pounds over eight years ago, I shy away from going to fast-food restaurants except for maybe a cup of coffee in the morning. I make it a habit to keep food in the car for lunch. However, on the rare occasions, I have to go to a fast-food restaurant for lunch; I have made it a rule to eat one item off the children’s menu. You may be thinking that it is not a healthy thing to do. However, the calories you get from a children’s meal is not going to ruin your weight loss endeavor.

If you are thinking that it is not enough food for you. You are wrong. It is enough food. If you think, it isn’t, you need to rethink it.

Over the years, you have convinced yourself that you need to eat more than your body actually needs. The rule of thumb is that if you feel really full, you ate way too much. You should eat enough food that the hunger is gone without feeling really full. This can be accomplished by eating a little and then waiting 20 Minutes and eating a little more. A children’s menu item is enough to hold you over until dinner and still allow you to stay on track. It is also available at most fast-food restaurants. Therefore, if you want to stay on the weight loss track, eat off the children’s menu.

Shortcuts to Losing Weight

Shortcuts to Losing Weight

Most people are willing to spend some time and money for a shortcut to lose weight. This is because in other areas of their lives, shortcuts pay off, and it reinforces their belief that there just might be an easier way. What I have found is that those who spend too much energy chasing shortcuts are often disappointed and usually fail.

There are no shortcuts to losing weight. That does not mean that you have to hate it. I realize I become stress free and relaxed after a good workout, and really enjoy exercising for how I feel afterwards. I realized that eating lighter and healthier gives me more energy in the afternoon.

Losing weight and getting fit does not have to be painful. If you concentrate on the benefits, you may actually enjoy the process. That’s why I lost 50 lbs in four months and have kept it off over eight years now.

Shortcuts are not the answer. The key is to dig deep inside you and find a way to enjoy the journey.

Just say “NO!” : Learn This and Lose Weight

Just say “NO!” Learn This and Lose Weight

I was running with a group of marathon runners the other day, when one of them said to me that she had a problem in saying “NO” to food. She said that the only reason she was able to stay thin is because she runs 10-12 miles a few times a week. She mentioned that one of the other marathon runners had no problem saying, “NO!” That lead me to think. If you want to lose weight you need to learn to say, “NO!”

You need to say “NO” to seconds at mealtime. You need to say “NO” to high-calorie deserts most of the time, or you need to say “NO” to anything but a very small portion of desert. You need to say “NO” to anything that tries to take you away from your exercise routine. You need to say “NO” to high-calorie snacks most of the time.

If you want to lose weight and keep it off for a lifetime, you will need to learn to just say “NO!”

Weight Loss Success is a Choice – Weight Loss Choice

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

Weight Loss Success : Weight Loss Choice

People tell me all the time that they can’t lose weight. However, what they don’t realize is that weight-loss success is a choice. Weight loss is their choice. The key is that they have to choose to do it and stop complaining that they can’t. It is not that they can’t lose weight. It is that they choose not to do what it takes to make it happen.

The concept of losing weight is simple (you take in less calories than you burn). However, it may not always be easy. It’s all how you perceive it. The choice you make to lose weight does not stop there. Losing weight is full of choices and with those choices come trade-offs. Do you sit on the sofa after dinner or go for a walk? Do you go up for seconds at dinnertime? Do you eat a scoop of ice cream or a bowl?

Choices are made everyday. Each choice will either move you towards your goals or away for your goals. Make the right choices and you lose weight. Make the wrong choices and you gain it.

Therefore, it is important to choose wisely, choose often, and let’s get it done.

Weight Loss Nutrition

Weight Loss Nutrition

Losing weight is one of the best things that any overweight person can do for themselves. However, it is also important to get the right nutrition. This includes getting the right amount protein. If you exercise and are losing weight, there is a chance that you are losing some muscle mass. This is why it is important to make sure that you are taking in enough protein.

It is also important that you intake other vital nutrients. First, it is important to get your nutrients by eating healthier. It is also a good idea to get additional nutrients through vitamin and protein supplements. The key is to make sure that you have the right balance between healthy foods, and supplements without overdoing the supplements. This balance will be different for everyone depending on body makeup, weight, and activity level. The more activity for instance the more nutrients your body needs.

It is a good idea to consult a nutritionist or doctor before taking on this task.

Remember that the harder you exercise, the more nutrients your body will require.
