Keys to positive weight loss
Help! My high school reunion is next week and I need to lose 50 pounds!
Sorry, but unless you're willing to cut off a limb, that's not likely.
It's more likely that anything you do that drastically drops your weight is not going to last, not be healthy, and in the long run, cause you to be even heavier when all is said and done.
So, what can you do?
- Plan early. Really plan.
- Not "I want to lose weight" but be specific with your weight loss goals.
- Be consistant - don't jump from one plan to another. Stick with your plan as scheduled. If you have 'days off', fine, but other than that, be strict.
- Be realistic - 50 pounds by next week? You read the first part of this, right?
State your goal as "I will weigh (insert desired weight)" Not, I'm going to lose 50 pounds.
- Take a day off now and then. Plan them. Enjoy them. You'll find it's easier to stick with your weight loss plan this way, and you'll have less desire to eat even the bad stuff even when it's your 'free day' or 'day off' from your plan.
- Reward yourself: preferably with going to do something besides eating :-)
- Get a partner to help you stay motivated, to help motivate
- Use exercise and careful diet selection together, not just one or the other.
Is that it?
Well, there's more, but this is a good start no matter what plan you decide on.
