Weight Loss Observations

Photo credit: Stuart Miles
Happy New Year to you!  We're a week into the new year and one of the most popular resolutions is to lose weight.  A new year, a new you - only less of you.

Over the years, I've made some observations about different weight loss techniques and diet plans.  The most important one being that most of them offer similar food menus and support.

Admittedly, I have attempted the weight loss challenge once.  The second time I changed my eating habits was to satisfy a curiosity, weight loss was a side effect.

Clean Eating magazine (pictured above) has a 14-day meal plan, including a shopping list.  I did this menu plan many years ago because everything was laid out for me.  After 28 days of it, I felt great.  

Recently, I saw Amy's on How I Made My Millions.  I checked out their website and saw their products in my local grocery store.  The food they provide is for vegetarians and they offer a diet plan.

How do you lose the weight?  How do you stay motivated to finish the task at hand?  How do you keep it off?

Before undergoing this massive overhaul of your life, and because it is lifestyle change, check with your health care provider.  You want to improve your health and eating habits, while at the same time maintaining your body's equilibrium.  Keeping up with your PCP will help you accomplish your goals.

Set goals.  If you are trying to lose weight, set goals that are measurable and attainable.  Can you realistically lose 20 pounds in two weeks?  Probably not.  The average healthy weight loss is 1-2 pounds per week.

Have a plan.  How do you drive from NY to CA?  A road map.  Measurable and attainable means that you will define how you will accomplish losing the weight.
Example: Week 1 - "I will drink 8 cups of water everyday this week."
Week 2: "I will add one more serving of fruits and vegetables to my meals everyday this week."
Week 3: Do 10 lunges while vacuuming one room per day.
Week 4: Exercise 30 minutes per day, 2 15-minute increments.

Cut yourself some slack.  If you have a day in which you overdo it on one of your goals, forgive yourself.  Tomorrow is a new day.  Keep going on your task at hand.  Remind yourself that you are worth it.

Strive for success, not perfection.  Have fun on this journey.  Please share your successes.
