We all know and understand the importance of maintaining a healthy weight. Some people do quite well at managing their pounds with seemingly little effort, while others struggle constantly. If you struggle with weight loss, Here are 3 Weight Loss Tips to follow.
FIRST, START SMALL
Replace a couple of negative behaviors with positive ones, and commit to making them stick. Great examples of these are substituting water for soft drinks, eating a high-protein breakfast, or changing out your nightly bowl of ice cream with yogurt.
Simply removing 100 calories a day adds up to a 10 pound weight loss over a year’s time. Small modifications offer the dual benefits of being easier to implement while still showing results.
NEXT, KEEP A JOURNAL
Write down every bite you eat along with the portion size. Listing your food intake provides accountability, which may keep you from taking that third slice of pizza or super-sizing those fries.
It also arms you with important information that will be helpful throughout your weight loss journey. If you hit a plateau, read back through the journal to see what you may have changed over time that caused the scales to stall. And speaking of scales….
DON’T LIVE AND CRY BY THE SCALES
Often, dieters weigh every day and are elated or depressed based on the number on the scales. That’s a roller coaster way to live, and those emotions can cause calorie laden binges!
Plus, daily weighing is not accurate, as fluctuations in water weight are common. Weigh once a week at the most, at roughly the same time each day. A weekly routine gives you a good idea of your success without the stressful up and down of daily weighing.
