Dying to Lose Weight, But How To Start

Posted Oct 10 2008 1:01pm

Are you dying to lose those extra pounds that have accumulated round your middle? Are you filled with indecision as to what to do?. So what’s the best way to get into shape?

The first thing to do is to have a really good look at what you are doing wrong. Don’t try and kid yourself, if you’ve put on weight there is a reason - actually, probably several.

If you’re serious about losing weight it is going to take resolve on your part. Losing weight is not something that happens by magic, it has got to be worked at. Are you prepared t make the effort? If not then you will be wasting your time embarking on the project.

If you have a sweet tooth you are going to have to give up the candy bars and the sandwiches, the full fat cheese and all those delicious cakes. You have to make yourself aware of all the things you think have contributed to your weight gain and cut them out.

Have you any idea how many calories there are in the food that you eat every day. Is it a lot of a little? You may think it’s not much, but it may be much more than you think. Do you know how many calories you should take in every day? You need to be aware of these facts before you go any further or you are likely to make some fundamental mistakes.

What you do not want to do is to just reduce your calorie intake because you believe it’s what you need to do. This course of action will prove to be disastrous. In fact it is very likely to result in you actually putting on weight rather than taking it off.

How much exercise do you take? You have to be honest with yourself here. There is no point in convincing yourself you take enough exercise when in your heart of hearts you know perfectly well that you take very little.

Exercise is very important because it burns calories. It’s also very good for you. We were not meant to sit around looking at television or playing computer games. Our bodies were meant to be used. It is certainly true that if you don’t use it you lose it - something to remember! Losing weight effectively is about learning new habits, new slim habits that will help you to change. If you don’t change, and are not prepared to change, no amount of dieting will ever result in permanent weight loss.
