How To Lose Weight and Keep It Off

Doing some kind of exercise is absolutely necessary to get and maintain some level of fitness. Regardless of what anyone tells you, there's no other way to do it. You can't lose weight unless you're willing to change the way you eat and get more physically active.

I've said it before and I'll say it again.  It ain't easy.  If it were, people would not be spending billions of dollars every year on weight loss diets and programs.  Just this year, the CDC has stated that 40% of women and 35% of men are obese, not just overweight.  That's in spite of all the money that has been spent on a fairly simple, but difficult problem.

Changing what we eat and eating less is a no-brainer.  Everybody knows that's the best way to lose weight.  Getting more active and exercising to improve your fitness may be harder.  It's natural to feel some pain when you are trying eat less and become more active.  But if you're motivated and committed to reach the goal, it'll be easier to make a plan and stay with it.

If that's your issue, here are some tips for make it easier to start your journey.

Fitness For Beginners

If you want to get the most out of your workout, make sure that you make the time available to do a workout.  Have a basic plan of what you would like your workout to do and set some realistic goals.  If you want to have 6-pack abs, set a time limit to achieve some muscle definition within 6 months. If you want to lose ten pounds then set a goal of a pound a week to start and eight weeks to meet the goal.  Make the time frame one that is achievable.  And remember, if you don’t know what your goals or targets are you'll never reach them.

Plan Your Routine to make sure that you know when you’re going to be working out and what you'll be doing.  A plan is absolutely essential to keep you on track and learn how to exercise correctly and effectively. Include some rest days and be realistic about how much time you can spend working out at a gym or at home.

You need to be able to stick to your schedule as much as possible.  When you get trapped and get into the habit of skipping the gym it gets really difficult to get back on track.  Establishing a routine that you can live with will make your targets more achievable.

Make A Commitment and Hold yourself Accountable.  Transforming your body needs complete and absolute dedication. You can’t afford to skip a day or two here and there even if you feel as though you've earned it and deserve it.  Stay with your routine, even if you plan a vacation.  Learn how to do some body weight exercises and take the same amount of time to workout on each day you have a scheduled work out.

Don’t Believe The Hype That It's Easy.  It’s easy to look at people pushing exercise and diet programs and suddenly panic if you’re a woman who is just trying to lose weight and live a fuller life.  It may be possible to develop a petite and slender figure like those ladies in the commercials, but believe me, they didn't get that way without working for it.

The reality is that if you stick to a plan that you and your personal trainer (if you have one) has made for you, you won’t go wrong if you ignore preconceptions and just stick to the plan.

Make Your Routine As Simple As Possible.  Remember, you're just starting a fitness program. If you want to be successful, avoid injury and make sure that you know how to do the basics first.  Start with short sessions to learn technique and then increase the workout as you become confident and your fitness level start to improve.  Believe me, I know how easy it is to overdo it and get some really sore muscles.
