Keep a Food Journal
While there were plenty of people who lost their weight simply by eating healthy, the vast majority of
successful weight losers kept a food diary and counted calories. Journaling your food intake helps raise
awareness about your eating patters. Not only does it help you mange your energy balance, it can also
undercover hidden relationships you have with food.
Move More, However Little It May Be
Getting more active is a common success principle for just about every fit person. However, among the
people who lost more than 50lbs, the addition of more movement to their lives came in just about e very
form you can imagine.
There was strength training, walking, riding bikes to work, Zumba, dancing, and running. The ultimate
emphasis was that doing something was better than nothing. Even 10 minutes of activity a day makes a
difference in the long run.
If the majority of your day’s liquid intake isn’t water, you might want to reconsider that habit. Drinking
water was the number 1 most submitted tip. Everyone agreed that eating your calories is much more
effective than drinking them. Good old H2O does a body good.
The difference between having a goal and accomplishing it is everything in between, and planning is
what helps to successfully connect all the days together to get you to your goal.
Plan your meals. Plan your workouts. Have backup plans in place in case you’re not able to cook. Being
prepared helps keep you on track so that you don’t reach for convenience food when life throws you a
Want to lose weight because you love your body, and not because you hate it. Lose weight for you, and
not for other people. Get comfortable with seeing yourself naked, and start working on your body
These were all tips submitted by the community. Start working on loving yourself now. Changing how
much you weigh is not going to change the way you feel about yourself. Work on improving your self
worth from day 1.
Take It One Day At a Time
It might seem like there’s a long road ahead, and that’s because there is. But that’s OK. All you have to
do is take things one step at a time. It’s the accumulation of many daily victories that carries you to the
end of your weight loss journey. Don’t get overwhelmed. Social Support
Surround yourself with people who support you. When we start a weight loss journey it’s very typical of
the people close to you to question your lifestyle change. It can be discouraging to not have the support
of friends and family.
Find someone to share the daily challenges with. That might mean finding a workout partner, joining a
weight loss club, or hanging out in online support groups like blogs and forums. These people will l
understand your daily struggles and will keep you motivated towards your goal.
