Here\’s How to Lose the Weight…..
…..Without dieting that is. D-I-E-T is a four letter word that should be expunged from
our vocabularies unless the word itself helps you to remember to cut back on certain foods. When you have decided to lose an extra 10 pounds (or maybe the last 10 pounds), keep these things in mind:
1. Create goals for yourself, write them down and stick to it. What\’s the point in having a goal if you aren\’t going to do what it takes to reach it? For example, if you want to lose 10 pounds in 2 months (very doable by the way), then a short term goal could be: I will lose 5 pounds by the end of February and
another 5 by the end of March. Nothing yet about how you will get there, just know that you can and write it down.
2. Break the goal down even further into smaller more manageable goals like: \”I will lose 2 pounds this week by cutting back on chocolate (only 1 piece a week) and drinking more water (64 ounces a day)\” as an example. This is also very attainable, and you will monitor your progress at the end of the week. Be sure to fit the water into your schedule since when you are busy, it is easy to forget to drink the most important fluid that your body needs.
3. If your goal requires more physical activity on your part, figure out what the extra exercise will be. It needs to be something that you like to do and that you will do even when you don\’t feel like it. Your commitment to yourself should be all important in this process, and if you need extra accountability, consider an exercise buddy or a personal trainer. While the buddy won\’t usually have the expertise, he/she will keep you on track, and the trainer will help you define realistic goals and help you stick to them.
