There are right ways and wrong ways to go about dropping weight and the strategies that I am going to provide you here are going to focus on right ways to drop weight. Aside from looking better on a beach people are trying to lose weight for health reasons so you should avoid trying to game the system.
The first thing you must to do is go out and buy a scale if you don’t have one. How are you going to precisely track your success and keep yourself accountable if you have no way of measuring your success or failure? This does not need to be an pricey scale. A simple 15 dollar scale from Wal-mart will do the job.
The next thing you need to do is set up a chart and post it somewhere visible in your house that you will walk by everyday. After that establish a normal schedule of weighing yourself. This should be at least weekly but I would recommend daily or every other day. This will help you stay accountable, and posting it somewhere you see it everyday will prevent you from being able to hide or not acknowledge that it is there.
The second strategy that will help you start the diet process. I am not even going to tell you to alter what you eat. Just do not finish everything on your plate every meal. Eat all the same foods that you have been eating just don’t eat as much of them. This will be surprisingly affective while still not changing your diet too drastically. Smaller changes will have a long term affect than if you were to try and drastically overhaul your lifestyle over night.
Lastly, you need to continue to add changes. Yes starting by reducing meals will have a little affect and will only get you so far if every meal still consists of take out. The key is to continually add changes until you are eating completely healthy and it feels normal to you.
Some changes could be cutting carbs out of your last meal of the day, only eating take out once a month, or eating more white meat instead of red meat.
I could list health recommendations to you all day here and that will not help you understand my point. The point is start adding all these tips that you probably have already heard about one at a time to your life and you will find that they stay there permanently.
