Weight Loss Disappointments, Don’t Let Them Stop You!

October 19, 2010

Weight loss is a funny thing. For some it seems to work easily, others not so easily. But is it really easily for those that can lose it? And if not, then maybe you need to just change what you’re doing to get those pounds off. Don’t get discouraged. It’s a goal worth accomplishing at any point in time.

Sometimes you may not realize how much food your consuming or you don’t tally in things like an extra snack, the candy dish on your coworkers desk, or the food you ate off your little ones plate, before and after they at it. It happens more often than you think.

Write down everything you eat…EVERYTHING! Do it for a few weeks. Figure out how many calories you’ve consumed and then you’ll know if it’s over what you should have eaten to lose weight.

Weight loss is a bit of a job! It’s particularly hard the first month. It’s worth doing though. I train people who sometimes think it’s ok to eat right SOMETIMES, but remember, you’re not trying to maintain your weight, you’re trying to lose it. To do that, you need to take in less calories and burn more than you usually do.

Burn them with 20 – 30 minutes of interval training. And do resistance training to tighten your body, add lean tissue and to burn calories at rest. Every pound of lean tissue you add burns up to 50 calories a day at rest. So if you put on 4 lbs of lean tissue, you burn 200 calories a day…that’s 1400 calories a week. Almost a half pound…at rest! Add in cardio, your workouts and reducing calories and you’ve turned into a calorie burning machine!

Changes in diet also help. I know someone who gave up anything with milk in it. She found she had a problem with it, or suspected it at least and she gave it up. She wouldn’t eat anything with milk in the ingredients…not even soups with milk in the ingredients…she lost 6lbs her first week and lost inches. When she noticed it wasn’t coming off anymore, she went on what she calls the hunter gatherer diet. Only veggies, salads and proteins. It’s never a good idea to cut out carbs…you need carbs. But she gets them from eating specific vegetables. She lost more weight and more size.

The point is, change. Change makes a difference. Its the key to success in anything. So Change! helps with those changes too. We prompt you to make those changes on a daily basis up to 3 times. It might be exercise, it might be something as simple as making sure you drink a glass of water before you eat your meal…but it’s change.

So change it up…and sign up for
