As most of us know, reducing our weight to the healthy value does not only benefit us aesthetically but also serves as an important factor in women’s health care. However, cutting those pounds is not entirely dependent on reducing our calorie intake. It is a process far more complex. Here are some of our tips that will surely help every woman reduce her weight successfully.
First, set right goals. They must be specific and feasible. Instead of aiming to simply lose weight, why not set your objectives like to lessen the meats in your every meal and replace them with fruits and veggies or to jog thirty minutes everyday before heading to work. Set at least two or three goals at a time and infuse them into your lifestyle. Take things slowly but surely. Do not try to turn your life around in a snap. Change is a slow and enduring process. Remember to take your time. If you would want to lose a pound or two every week, it could be unhealthy or make you gain even more weight. Haste makes waste.
Second, reward success. If you are successful in attaining a specific goal, treat yourself with a movie or a massage or a shopping spree. It would make you more enthusiastic in achieving all the goals you set. Just do not reward yourself with food. Never with food.
Also, keep a food and exercise diary. Many psychologists believe that keeping track of your progress would encourage you to achieve long-term goals. As you see the progress you are making, you would be more into achieving the bigger goals.
Another tip is to monitor your weight wisely. Do not overdo it. Do not weigh yourself after every meal or everyday. Progress would not be that abrupt. Also, your water weight also varies daily. If you monitor your weight every single day, you may just get frustrated and give up on all your efforts.
One effective way is to seek support. Go to support groups and talk with your friends and family. You could even look for a weight-loss body. Not only could they provide you with more tips and facts on losing weight, they could you psychologically. The best way to fight your battles is to face them with someone.
Also, be in control of yourself. Instead of getting frustrated, angry or hopeless, then just go for a run or exercise. In addition, do not be too hard on yourself. If you miss a day of exercising, do not punish yourself for it. Nobody is perfect. Just move on from the mistake and continue achieving your goals.
Most of us resort to eating whenever we feel depressed or stressed. In case of someone who tries to lose weight, try to seek other stress-busting activities like exercising or meditating.
You could also try changing the way you eat. For example, drink a glassful of water before eating a meal. It would help you eat less. Or change you plates to smaller ones. Be smart and creative.
Lastly, control the portion you eat. You may eat only half the serving you ordered and take home the other half. It really is more on self-control.
