How To Lose Weight A Few Seconds At A Time

Jun 6, 2008
Losing weight is a process and a journey which is made up of small steps along a path of smart choices about good nutrition and regular exercise toward a clearly visible goal - a healthy lifestyle of fitness and physical as well as mental wellbeing. Each small step in the right direction on this golden path to your ultimate goal takes but a brief second. Therefore, it is safe to claim that weight loss takes mere seconds but the results can last a lifetime.

To ensure that your feet remain on the proper path, pointing you in the right direction and continue to carry you toward the goal line which needs to always remain in your mind's eye, it is best to proceed by asking yourself relevant questions each time you find yourself in danger of steering off course.

When you catch your hand reaching for a bag of potato chips rather than a golden apple, challenge yourself with the following question: "Am I making a smart choice here? Will this continue to advance me toward my goal?"

When you recognize the loaded plate before you and you're about to devour its contents ask yourself, "Do I really need to eat so much food? Would I rather trade that plate for the weight loss I am striving for?"

When you've returned home from a late night movie and you dive into the refrigerator to extract a leftover pizza, don't hesitate to question the wisdom of this move by reminding yourself that, "I'm not really hungry now and I shouldn't be eating so late at night just before going to sleep. Do I really need that greasy pizza which will undermine all that I've accomplished so far?"

I am willing to bet that ninety-nine percent of the time you will respond in a way that retains you on the right path and you should be proud of yourself for achieving that.

And while you're in the process of asking yourself questions regarding the choices you make about food, ask yourself questions about physical activities.

Notice how frantically you are pouncing on the only unoccupied parking spot close to the entrance of the supermarket and ask yourself, "Do I really have to park so close? Why couldn't I leave this spot for the elderly, the weak and the lazy while I park on the far end of the lot where the parking spots are plentiful?" You'd be doing yourself and your body a favor by walking those extra few feet.

Intercept your intent to watch TV by asking, "What will this hour or two on the couch do for me? Wouldn't I rather take my dog out for a walk?"

You're visiting a friend who lives on a second floor condo and you're about to call the elevator. Stop and ask yourself, "Couldn't I walk those two flights of stairs?"

To summarize it all, losing weight is simply making different choices about the food you eat and about your body's mobility. The more discriminatory you become about the food you ingest and the more you get your body to move, the quicker you will reach your goal - a healthy lifestyle of fitness and physical as well as mental wellbeing.
