How To Make Losing Weight A Little Easier

Starting a​ weight loss diet is​ one of​ the​ easiest things a​ person can do. Staying with it,​ well,​ that’s another thing entirely. There are so many reasons that people just can’t seem to​ stay with their weight loss attempts.

if​ you are like most people,​ you probably have a​ pretty full schedule nearly every day with what seems like more things to​ do than hours in​ the​ day to​ get them done. Between work,​ school and things at​ home that need to​ be done,​ it’s no wonder that it​ can be so hard to​ find time to​ lose weight.

Most of​ the​ time you are probably eating haphazardly,​ eating whatever is​ fast,​ convenient and can be eaten on​ the​ go. Your average day never seems to​ give you the​ time to​ exercise. Well,​ if​ you are serious about losing that extra weight there are a​ few things you can do that will help make your quest a​ little easier. it​ will still take some effort on​ your part,​ but you can do it.

To start with,​ you need to​ have a​ plan. Weight loss is​ a​ long term goal,​ and while long term goals may be important,​ they often do not have a​ sense of​ urgency. it​ is​ too easy for less important things,​ but things that have to​ get done right now,​ to​ take over and put your long term goal on​ the​ back burner.

The way to​ remedy this is​ to​ break your long term goal down into a​ series of​ short term ones,​ then break these short term ones into things that find their way onto your daily “to do” list. Make a​ list of​ what you want to​ accomplish with your weight loss plan and be specific. Rather than saying “I would like to​ lose this extra weight”,​ say “I want to​ lose 20 pounds in​ the​ next six months”.

Now that you have a​ long term goal for yourself,​ you need a​ plan of​ action to​ make it​ a​ reality. This is​ where you now say “to do this,​ I want to​ lose 3-4 pounds each month”. Now that you’ve set yourself up with a​ series of​ short term goals,​ you need to​ say to​ yourself “I will lose one pound every week until I have lost 3-4 pounds this month”. Now keep in​ mind that it​ is​ not enough to​ simply have the​ goal. You need to​ remind yourself of​ it​ everyday,​ all day.

Put your goal of​ losing one pound each week on​ your refrigerator door,​ on​ your computer screen,​ your calendar or​ your day planner,​ and even on​ the​ dashboard of​ your car. This way your plan is​ always there with you everyday,​ all day to​ keep you reminded of​ just how important it​ is,​ where ever you go.

You probably won’t be able to​ make all of​ the​ changes you want to​ all at​ once. to​ be realistic about it,​ select one or​ two things like snacking or​ fast food to​ eliminate,​ and focus on​ those things. Write down what you want to​ do different,​ and make it​ part of​ your ‘things to​ do today” list. Each day as​ you do these things,​ mark it​ off as​ done for that day. By doing this,​ you can see that you really are achieving your goals and you will feel so good about yourself each day for making yourself stay committed to​ it.

If one day here and there you didn’t accomplish your daily goal,​ do not feel defeated and do not get down about it. What you need to​ do here is​ sit down and assess the​ situation to​ figure out why it​ didn’t happen that day. Perhaps you just need to​ plan your day a​ little better.



if​ you had planned to​ bring a​ low fat,​ healthy lunch with you but got rushed and did not have the​ time to​ make it,​ start making it​ the​ night before and keep it​ in​ the​ fridge,​ then all you have to​ do is​ grab it​ and go. Remember,​ you are only human and you will make mistakes,​ but the​ important thing is​ that you learn from your mistakes and move ahead rather than letting them defeat you.

Take a​ few minutes at​ the​ end of​ each day to​ reflect on​ everything that you did that day,​ and to​ plan out your next day. the​ little bit of​ time you take each day to​ plan will make a​ major difference in​ your weight loss success.

Cross Training for Fitness and Fat loss

Cross Training for Fitness and Fat loss
A small amount of fat is needed for padding the internal organs and as insulation under the skin. Excess fat leads to such diseases as diabetes, gout, high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, and gallbladder problems. There are very few, very fat persons. The reason is that the fittest, not the fattest survive.
The numbers on your scale do not indicate whether you are fit or fat. Far more significant than your total body weight is the composition of your body tissue. If a man’s fatty tissue is bigger than 14% up to 15% of his body mass, or if a woman’s is more than 20% to 22%, he or she is overweight, or more precisely, over fat.

The problem now is focused on how to resolve the problem. The problem with most people who want to lose weight is that they have the propensity to concentrate more on getting those numbers lower than what they are seeing now. What happens next is that they strive harder to achieve a lower weight, according to the …
