Keeping up with your diet is not easy for anyone and there will by times where we are tempted to deviate. At the beginning, everything seems so easy to stick to, with both ambition and commitment running high. However, eventually motivation usually dwindles, and you start to give up. This is not something that occurs with everyone. There are many people who lose the weight and keep the weight off. How do people maintain their goal weight for so long?
The first step in weight loss is to set out clear aims. Can you visualize a certain number that you would like to see on the scale? Is it your goal to slide into a new pair of jeans that are several sizes smaller, or just feel more svelte in the clothes you already wear? Are you in need of a better figure and a bit more energy?
Consider starting a weight loss diary. Record what you eat and how you feel every day. It’s usually better to not actually weigh yourself every day; at the end of each week, check your weight and write that down too. After you’ve written down your food intake, you can compare how much weight you’ve lost to what foods you’ve been eating and make any necessary changes.
If you don’t nip hunger in the bud, you’re far more likely to make bad food choices as your hunger takes over. Avoid making poor food choices by always have a collection of healthful snacks packed and ready whenever you are out. Packing lunches to eat while at the office or at school makes far more sense than dining out. Bringing your own lunch will help you resist cravings and give you better control over the calories you eat. Save your waistline and your wallet when you bring your own lunch.
The most effective way to get weight off is to eat healthy and work out on a regular basis. Exercising at least 3 times a week is great, while exercising every day is not essential. Make exercise fun if you are bored with it. If you are a fan of dancing, taking a class is a great way to workout while still having fun.
You might realize this, but it’s worth saying: if you don’t have any junk food in the house, you won’t be tempted to eat it. Fill your house with foods that are good for your body, such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Avoid purchasing the foods you should not have so it will not be in your cupboards when you are hungry. Challenge yourself not to purchase tempting foods in the first place.
When you are on a weight loss plan, support is vital. While your friends and family cannot lose weight for you, the support they provide is invaluable in keeping you motivated. When you feel like giving up, a simple call to a person in your support network can make all the difference in the world.
