It’s easy to get bogged down by all the details. Many times, we don’t even know what the very first step should be.
If you’re just getting started on your weight loss journey, here’s some thoughts on some of the basics you can start with. Try not to get bogged down with the other stuff right off the bat. The importance here is to start making some new healthy habits and make some changes so you start seeing results. After that, you can start tweaking your tactics to get even better results.
Here’s how to start losing weight:
* First, move every day. If you don’t want to think about a workout program yet, just get out and move. Try a walk every day for 30 minutes. I just ask that you push yourself a little. Try to break a sweat. Yes, do it every day, it’s only 30 minutes. You deserve it! If walking is too easy for you, jog instead. If those are too boring, consider staring on an actual workout program. This is my preference actually, because the good ones are developed for the best results, they are more interesting and fun, and it can be very motivational to have an actual program with a schedule. My preferences for some starting workouts are Turbo Jam, Slim in 6, and Chalean Extreme. Have you seen my results from Chalean Extreme?? http://wp.me/p2aVN6-6h
* Second, get rid of sweets. Anything that is sugary, including desserts, sodas, teas. Included though are also white breads. So breads like crossaints, biscuits, white bread, regular pasta, and white rice. Replace them all with whole wheat versions. The white stuff turns to sugar. And sugar is the real enemy here.
* Finally, drink water all day long, add in one serving of fruit per day, one serving of vegetables per day, and make sure you’re snacking on something every few hours.
These are the bare basics. If you stick to this type of plan for a few weeks, you’ll start feeling better and you’ll be developing new, healthy habits. If you give it a try, I think you’ll be surprised with how you feel. When you’re ready to move on, come back here and check in, click on the fitness tab and lets take it to the next step.
