Healthy Weight: Your Personal Plan

Losing weight is not as easy as they make it in weight loss products advertisements. Losing weight the right and healthy way takes discipline, effort and dedication. This is why when you try to lose weight and see no changes after all your plans and all the effort you put in, it can be really frustrating and discouraging.

Eat and be healthy

It’s because of this that experts suggest changing your goal from losing weight to becoming healthy.

Experts say that the best way to lose weight and keep it off is to not go on a diet.

The ideal approach to weight loss

To lose weight, don’t focus on how many pounds you want to lose. Instead zero in on making tiny, specific changes that are easy to meet and hold fast to. Something that you can do long term, like replacing chips with fruits or veggies, making it your task to walk the dog.

Making small changes, one at time, is easier to adhere to than going from zero exercise and unhealthy diets to full-on exercise and diet mode. What a shock that’ll be to your body. Also, just the sheer effort you’ll be putting in can lead to incredible frustration if you don’t see your pounds melt away like you expect they would (or should, in your opinion).

Personal plan

Creating a personal plan can help you with your goal – not to lose weight – but to be healthier. Plan to create small changes in your routine and write them down in your personal plan. When you’re done, you can put up your plan someplace where you can always see it and be inspired.

The nice thing about making small changes one at a time is that, yhere’s very little or no pressure because you’re turning the ‘work’ into something that feels like a normal part of your routine, a normal part of your life. When a change like no time at all, you’ll notice that you’ve lost weight and are healthier and in better shape.
