Here are some tips to get started:
- Keep reading Sandy’s Smart Weight Loss Blog and meet me at a free event.
- Exercise! Do something you will enjoy. (This is important otherwise you are more likely to give up at some point). For example: One of my readers remembered that she always wanted to learn Karate. So now with about 45 or almost 50 years she started taking Karate classes – and she loves it. What is it that you would like to do? It doesn’t have to be exotic; I personally love cycling, stretching and a good workout.
- Stay motivated! This is most important. You’ve got to find something that motivates you. (If you can’t find anything, there is a highly motivating weight loss guide I can recommend …)
- Eat plenty of vegetables and fruits instead of the usual fried foods, chocolates, biscuits and cakes, …
- You don’t need to eat less. Start learning how to make the right choice instead. Remember that: Knowledge is success!
- If you get the “hunger feeling” – try some water, brush your teeth, do some gardening or go for a walk. Change your focus away from the food.
- Remember that we train our bodies to crave certain foods. This means that for example the more fried food and cakes you eat, the more your body will crave them.
- When it comes to being thirsty, remember that many soft drinks contain lots of sugar. Always have water as you first choice.
- Are you eating lots of processed foods? Start ‘thinking fresh’! Why? There is a lot about the food that we put on our plates every day that most people don’t know but I think everyone should know. Many food products that we put on our plates every day may not only affect our weight but our health as well.
- Start ‘thinking smart’. Stop listening to advertising when it comes to chocolate bars, biscuits and burgers.
I hope this gets you going and please remember:
Take care of your body – it’s worth it!
Please note that this challenge is only aimed towards achieving a healthy bodyweight. I’m not a supporter of extra skinny and underweight figures. If you don’t know what your normal weight should be, check your BMI.
If you are overweight or over 40, haven’t done much exercise for some time, have an injury or medical condition or if you are experiencing any pain, please always check with your GP before starting any new exercise.
