Being successful in anything always comes with being consistent . Therefore if you can’t be consistent , your chances of successful weight loss are next to none. One cannot exist without the other.
When losing weight you have to think less about the fad diets focusing way you live your life.
Overeating is a habit, we learn it from a young age but at the time most of us have the metabolism of a rabbit so it does not show. But as we get older our metabolisms slow down and we all bulk up. It’s almost a guarantee that a reduction in the amount you eat will lead to long term weight loss. You may think what I just said is a no-brainer, but our society at times seems to have stomach for brains.
Furthermore overeating can be, and probably is a sign of depression. If you suffer from depression ,your chances of losing weight are significantly lowered. That is why you start your weight loss program, scheduling a trip to your doctor or psychologist is a good idea. They can provide you a responsible guidelines and goals that you can actually live with.
You don’t have to go through boot camp to lose weight. Although starting off with an extreme exercise regimen will help, realistically most people don’t have the time or the physical prowess to train at that level.
By living active doing simple everyday thing, you are in fact exercising. You exercise when you walk to the bus or make a trip to the grocery store, clean the house and even reading a book.
This is why the whole aspect of making a lifestyle change is so important to your weight loss success. Viewing everyday chores as a chance exercise will help you focus more on what needs to be done in your life. This will reduce the guilt from missing a day at the gym, increasing g your positive outlook on your weight loss success.
Also being active can mean joining a sports team. Team sports are a good way to positively be active , and easier to exercise then going solo. This doesn’t mean you will lose weight by playing softball and drinking a 12-pack of beer in the dugout. But its much better to have fun when exercising when your with a team then being without one.
Hold yourself accountable, don’t blame your lack of success on others or events in your life or you will go nowhere. Rather you should use your misfortunes as motivations to get better everyday. Being aggressive in this attitude will greatly increase your weight loss success
