Psyched To Weight Loss

May 30, 2008
It can be very hard and indeed frustrating at times to get your mind psyched for weight loss! Do you have only 10 to 20 pounds to lose or are you facing a monumental task with having to lose 100 pounds or more?

I know you might think that you have all seen the diet programs. With some of the diet programs, you are stuck having to buy their own foods to eat which can be cost prohibitive. Then you have to fix two separate meals one for you and the other for your family. Talk about time consuming! Isn't there an easier way to achieve weight loss, you definitely ask?

Just about everyone is tired of yo-yo dieting. You know only too well how that goes. Lose 10 pounds and then a couple of months down the road you gain back the weight you lost and then some to boot. The thing is that most diets make you feel deprived.

The one very important ingredient to any weight loss diet is will power. There are so many foods that are on the restricted list especially if you are a fast food junkie like me. The first thing you have to come to realize is that those fried and greasy foods are doing you no good except for gradually adding the pounds on to your already overweight body. You have to put your foot down and just scream, Enough is enough. That's what I did, and I feel all the healthier for it. I don't mean that I fudge occasionally. I do, but then I get right back on my diet bandwagon.

The next thing you must do is limit the portions you eat. You can do one of two things. Either get your spouse or significant other to help you with this by putting the food on your plate or use a smaller plate. You will have to limit your portions in order to get all of the food on your plate. I used to eat enough for about 3 people. Now, my daughter, who is always a real gem, helping me through all of this, has been fixing my plate and limiting my portions. When you buy food from one of those diet plans, that's all they are doing, is limiting the amount you eat. You will pay through the nose, too! Why not do it the easy and inexpensive way, and following my above suggestions?

The next thing you must do is get your body moving. You should try to take up walking. Many cities and towns have beautiful bike paths that you can do your walking on. If that happens to be too hard on your joints, then try taking up swimming. You may even want to join a swimming aerobics class. A good weight loss program is based on individual lifestyle. Overall, exercising is a must if you are serious about weight loss. This is probably the most important thing which determines whether your weight loss attempt will be successful.

No matter which weight loss method you may try, it will be challenging. When you see the results on the scales, you will get the feeling of self-satisfaction of knowing that you could do it all along.

By following these simple tips, you can start seeing results in your efforts to lose weight. Be consistent and make them part of your lifestyle and success in your weight loss program is assured. In order to gain considerable success in your weight loss program, you have to make certain changes in your food intake and eating habits. Now is the time to permanently inculcate those habits into your lifestyle.
