Start With Small Changes

How many times have you decided to lose weight and then drastically changed what you ate and drank? Maybe you even started to work out an hour or two a day. How long did it last? After a few days or weeks you start to get burned out and get tired of this completely different lifestyle. That’s exactly why so many of us fail in our weight loss efforts. The key is to make small, gradual changes instead. Don’t turn your entire life around. Instead, start going for a walk after work or on your lunch break three times a week. Start drinking an extra glass of water a day, or distract yourself when you want to eat out of boredom. Small changes like t his will add up in the long run. As you get used to some of these changes, add something else to make your lifestyle healthier. Next you may want to start packing a healthy lunch, or preparing some veggies or a salad as a side dish for dinner.

Don’t completely cut out every food you love, instead allow yourself that piece of chocolate, or indulge in a few bites of cake. You can get away with just about anything in moderation. Eat a little bit of your favorite foods after filling up on some healthier fare, and then walk away.
Before you know it all these small changes you are making will become habits.

Let’s Begin

Let’s start by taking a look at where you are at today. After all, you can’t measure what progress you are making if you don’t know where you started. Go ahead, muster some courage and step on that scale. Take out a notebook and write down your start weight.

From there, you can chart your progress as you go along. Simply weighing yourself and writing down the weight changes can be a big motivator to keep you going.

You may also want to take out a tape measure and measure around your waist, your hips, your upper arms and your thighs. You’ll be amazed at how quickly you will start losing inches once you incorporate healthy eating and a little bit of exercise into your daily life.

Lastly, you may want to consider keeping a food journal for a few days before you start making changes. Writing down everything you eat and drink for a week will give you a pretty clear picture about what you need to change.

You may find out that you tend to eat a lot more throughout the day if you skip breakfast, or that your snacking gets out of control at night when you flop down in front of the TV with a bag of cookies or popcorn. Once you see where your weaknesses are when it comes to food, you can take steps to change your habits. Which brings us to our next section…
