Honestly, Keep the weight off with this…

Honestly, Keep the weight off with this…

When you start a diet and exercise program, sticking with it is the real battle. Here are some tips to keep you going strong toward your goal.

Set an appointment to exercise. Make it a priority in your day and write in exercise on your calendar, just like any other appointment.

•Find strength in numbers. You’re more likely to stay on track with the support of an upbeat fitness friend with similar diet and exercise goals. It will keep you more consistent and accountable.

•Keep an exercise log. Count your steps every day and write down your activities that count toward your exercise goals. You can make it fun by walking around the country — in miles not geography! Find out how far it is from your town to your favorite destination or somewhere you always wanted to go. Then track your miles each week to “get there.”

•Set small goals. If you want to lose a lot of weight, start with the first 10 pounds so you don’t feel overwhelmed. Breaking weight loss into smaller bites makes it easier to tackle.

•Reward yourself. Don’t miss the milestones as you work toward your goal weight. Those little victories of 5 or 10 pounds are worth celebrating to keep you on the right path.

•Keep a food diary. It’s too easy to let a handful here and there pile up to a huge load of calories. By paying closer attention to what you eat each day, you’ll know your danger zones and where to cut back to lose weight. After a month, look back through your diary to see how far you’ve come.

•Add variety. No one says you have to walk the same course every day. Check out a park or another neighborhood. Walk instead of drive to a friend’s house. Or don’t walk anywhere – ride a bike, try out a new fitness class, take a dance class, or go for a swim at the local aquatic center.

Honestly, what worked for me was snacking on more vegetables and fruit during the day. When I do this, I find that at meal time I eat much smaller portions of food. I also take an optimal supplement helps curb my cravings.

Cheers to Your Health!

  3. Great article, thank you. I am very interested in finding a diet that lowers my sugar intake. I currently have a sweet-tooth, and am finding it difficult to find meal plans, what to eat for snacks, etc. While diabetes is not something that runs in my family, I am still concerned and would like to be smart and take a proactive approach to my health.

    • Hi Kristyn! First off thank you for taking time to comment. That means a lot to me. I understand the sweet tooth completely. i was a huge sweet tooth person. I could sit and consume bags of candy at a time. I never seemed to get enough sugar. Weird but true. Honestly the only thing that I found that helped me stop my craving for sugar was slimplicity. I stopped craving ice cream at night. I no longer stand in front of the refrigerator and wonder what I am going to eat. My snacking and cravings have actually been for vegetables. I crave apples, carrots, and celery. I lost almost 20# in one month… now I am not saying you will do the same but I did find that I am able to keep the weight off and don’t starve my body. If you want more information send me our email address.
      I wish you the best of luck on weight loss and your proactive approach to your health!
      Cheers! Katrina
