Weight Loss Priority New Year's Resolutions - Try a Treadmill

Posted Dec 16 2009 12:00am
Here we come again to the end of the year, and the time of resolutions. One of the most common ones is weight loss. Many millions of good Americans need to lose weight and they make the resolution, but then have no idea of how they will proceed. I went through my weight loss year in 2005 - 2006 and was successful, but it is a constant battle to stay at the new lower weight. Everything in our world keeps beating us back. It is hard.

The best thing my wife and I have ever done was to buy a treadmill. That thing helps to make sure we get the walking in every day, even when it is 10 degrees above zero outside. I love my treadmill, and I love my time using it. When the machine is right here in our home it is very difficult to ignore and it is right there in front of me. I have researched this, and talked to my doctor too. The common understanding is that we need 30 minutes every day of brisk walking to keep the fat down. So, that is what I do.

If you cannot afford a treadmill or don't have the room for one, then just get outside and walk to keep healthy and lose weight. It comes off slowly, but it does come off. Eat healthy and don't eat fatty foods all the time. You can still enjoy your favorite stuff once a week or so but eating is the overall problem. We are not a society of fasting traditions. We are the opposite of that overall.

Here is a suggestion. Get a treadmill. Below I have listed some treadmills that are affordable from the simple to the more complex, but all in the more affordable range. You might be surprised at how affordable they can be.

Of course there are many more of these treadmills that go up from the $599 range, and if you want all the bells and whistles the companies above have them. Just click through and search for the kind you want. After it arrives you have to get it unpacked and installed, and if you are handy that is not a problem, but if you need help there are many services that will do it for you. Just call your local sporting goods store. They will send the crew over for a fee of usually under $100. Treadmills are wonderful and you will love having one.
