Let’s face it. It is your big day. For both of you. You want everything to go perfectly without a hitch. Including looking the best you can for this special moment in your life. So, if looking in the mirror just doesn’t jibe with how you want to look on your wedding day, then losing those extra pounds will not only help you feel better about your upcoming nuptials, but will also hopefully rub off on your soon to be spouse, (prewife or prehusband) so you can lead healthier lives down the road.
Weight loss quite often seems just out of our reach, despite the best intentions. We often start out really motivated and ready to lose the weight right away. The farther we get from our first resolution to lose weight, the less motivated we often feel. However, methods can be applied that can stop this from occurring. Read on to find out how you can not only lose weight but keep it off.
It is critical to set a goal to strive for once you decide to work on losing weight. Do you want to lose a lot of weight, or do you just want to be able to fit into some clothes that have been too tight for some time? Or would you like to improve your overall health and fitness levels? Setting goals gives you a solid point in the future to look forward to. Without set goals, you will be less likely to stay with your weight loss program.
By creating a chart of your weekly weight-loss progress, you can easily stay informed of your results. Weigh yourself once a week and keep a record of everything you eat. This will help you to stay on course. Writing all your choices down will help you make better decisions.
The worst time to make a decision on what to eat is when you are starving. Do not let this happen to you. Plan your foods, pack them and have them at your side at all times. Packing a lunch will help you save money, and it is also a healthier option than eating out.
A truly great weight loss plan will focus on both diet and exercise. You have to take the time for physical activities that you actually want to do. Choosing a workout that you genuinely enjoy can make your exercise time a priority in your schedule instead of something you forget about. How about spending time with your male friends? Shoot some hoops with them! Is letting your hair down something that you enjoy doing? Sign up for some type of dancing lessons. Do you prefer to escape into the world of wildlife and visit areas of outstanding natural beauty? Hit those hiking trails!
To stop eating unhealthy foods, make it harder to obtain. If at all possible, eliminate junk food from your home. Having healthy food around you will make it easier for you to eat it.
Use a support network to assist you in your weight loss journey and this will help you to stay motivated. Your support network can help you push forward when you feel like quitting. The ones around you can help you stay on track.
