Have You Said I Need to Lose Weight Now

Sep 13, 2008
How many people have said help I need to lose weight now? With over half of the North American population now carrying around extra pounds the weight loss industry is now in the billion's of dollars and growing. How do you determine what is a healthy weight loss plan for yourself so you can accomplish your weight loss goal and the even harder task of keeping weight off?

One of the problems is that people who need to lose weight now, expect to lose pounds and inches fast. How much weight loss is a realistic and in what time span for a healthy weight loss plan? This is one of the problems with even the top weight loss programs. It took you a while to put on those extra pounds and inches, many of them creeping up ever so slowly until one day your pants no longer fit comfortably. So instead of solving the problem we go out and purchase new clothes. This is something most North Americans enjoy is owning new clothes so with this in the back of our minds it is an easy solution to those undesired extra pounds.

Why do you say I need to lose weight now? Is it for health reasons, personal reasons or both? If you are trying to lose weight for someone else, the chance of being successful in reaching your weight loss goal is not very high. You must want to do it for yourself to feel better and be healthier, have more energy and for more self confidence and a better out look on life. Yes, losing those extra pounds and inches can do many things to improve the quality of life.

Let's look at what are necessary in the weight loss process to have success. You must have a strong desire to be the person you want to become, just saying I need to lose weight is not enough. Many people start a program and then forgot about it within the first two weeks. It takes 21 days to create a habit and maybe changing things slowly in your life might be the best way for you to ensure your weight loss success.

The first thing you should set out to do is to stop, and I do mean stop eating after 7 pm at night. This is a hard one for many overweight people. Usually when you eat after 7 pm you are eating foods that are quick with high calories and little nutritional value. If you do this successfully for 21 days your body will no longer be sending those hunger signals to your brain, thus staring the weight loss process and retraining your brain to not require food after this time so you can begin to lose pounds and inches.

The next thing to do for a healthy weight loss plan is to start eating more frequently but smaller portions of food. Many people who need to lose weight now skip meals thinking this will help speed up the weight loss process. Actually this is very far from reality and they tend to overeat at the meals they do eat. By spreading your calorie intake thought the whole day sends your body the message that you are not starving it and will start using the stored fat within your body instead of storing more as fat. This will enable you to lose pounds and inches quicker than eating just one or two big meals, but again it takes time for your body to adapt to the change in our eating pattern and will take some time to retrain your brain.

So is it appropriate to expect to immediate weight loss results? While it can be done without retraining your brain and your body, it is almost impossible to keep the weight loss off. It is important to change the way you think from I need to lose weight now, to I need to lose weight for a healthier, happier life. Small changes can go a long way to having weight loss success with a help of a healthy weight loss plan.
