Weight Loss Tips - Dont Give Up!

by : Peggy Edwards

How many times have gone through this scenario? You begin a new diet, struggle to lose a couple of pounds and in 3 weeks or so you give up and quit! I know I've been there a few times over the years. Well, here are some tips to help you get over the hump.

Without a doubt, losing weight and staying on a diet is one of the toughest things to do in life. It was only in the past year that I've been able to overcome the struggle and keep the weight off.

I don't say that to brag, but to encourage you that if a mom of two children can do it, so can you. I have found some small tips along the way that may be helpful to you in staying on your diet regardless if it is the plan I've used, Fat Loss 4 Idiots, or any other diet plan that you may be on.

1. Stay relaxed - It is so easy to want instantaneous results. Our society has become one in which we expect instant gratification. Weight loss doesn't work that way. It takes time to get the results you are seeking.

Stay calm and remember that. If you don't lose 20 pounds in 2 weeks, don't quit. Keep going and you will lose those 20 pounds. It may just take 6 weeks or two months.

2. Develop good eating habits - This is so important. To get where you want to be you will need to change what you have been doing.

Begin eating more healthy foods such as fruits and regrettable instead of chips and cookies. Ease into it gradually by replacing these new food habits a little at a time.

3. Get up and get active - Add a small amount of walking into your daily routine. I'm not talking about a marathon, just some walking around the neighborhood.

This will not only give you some great exercise, but it will also improve your spirits and keep you going. You'll also see improved weight loss results as well.

Try these 3 tips and see if they don't help you. Yes, they may seem simple, but that's ok. They are also very effective. They work for me and I know they can for you too.
