This Year make a New year resolution to lose weight and gain health. Stop the cycle trying to make changes and then not following through. If your resolution is to take better care of yourself and get yourself healthy, you will have a much better year if your resolution sticks. Here are a few tips to help you get started. 

 

1. Most important is to be Realistic

Make your goal attainable, like committing to NEVER eat your favorite food  is setting you up to fail. Instead, strive for a reachable target , such as avoiding it more often than you do now

 

2.  Map your goal

Don’t give in to the temptation to skip that exercise class or have that piece of cake. Instead try calling on a friend for help or have some self-talk, and remind yourself how  â€œbad”it will affect your goal.

4. Make a “do s” and” donts” List

It helps us to see a list of items on paper to keep your motivation strong. Develop this list over time, and ask others to contribute to it. Keep your list with you and refer to it when you need help keeping your resolve.

5. Share it with friends

Keeping your resolution a secret. Tell friends and family members who will be there to support your resolve to change yourself for the better or improve your health. The best-case scenario is to find a friend  who shares your New Year’s resolution and motivate each other.

6.  Reward Yourself

 If your resolution is to eat a better diet, celebrate your success by treating yourself to something you enjoy that doesn’t contradict your resolution. If you have been sticking to your promise to eat better, for example, reward yourself with new clothes .

7.  Track Your Progress

Keep track of each small success. Short-term goals are easier to keep, and each small accomplishment will help motivate you.

Don’t starve, eat the Right way to lose Weight
26 December 2014
Now a days anyone who wants to lose weight, is so fed up that one just stops eating and feels that starving is the only way to get over with it. But actually starving yourself will cause you to gain weight and ruin your weight loss efforts. So one major reason that people do not meet their desired weight loss goals is because they are starving themselves- whether they realize it or not .Even if you are just busy and forget about eating, or if you seriously want some good amount of weight to be gone and are willing to starve to do it, both scenarios are very damaging. Despite the calories that you will be burning in the short-term, what you are really doing is slowing your metabolism Your metabolism indicates the number of calories your body needs. Everything you eat turns into energy; the rate of your metabolism determines how much energy, measured in calories, your body needs. Your body composition, age, gender, physical activity level and dietary habits all contribute to the amount of energy your body uses. This means that when you are done starving your body, your body will then grab hold of your future meals and not let go, thinking that you may not eat again for a long time. If starving yourself becomes habitual, you will be creating your own weight loss problem rather than fixing it.  The best way to lose weight is to speed up your metabolism by healthy eating, rather than reducing all calories. To accomplish this, eat small meals or healthy snacks at least every two to four hours, and eat a big breakfast to jump start your metabolism in the morning. Eat healthy meals full of nutrition and low in fat and watch your calories, while giving your body the support it needs. Your metabolism will speed up, and your weight will slim down before you know it Your body works on a basis of survival. Eating habits based on a starvation-type diet starts certain physiological changes inside the body that work to conserve energy. In the long run, this adaptation may sabotage your weight-loss efforts. To lose weight, you have to eat. Understanding the calories your body needs and strategies to burn fat will lead to successful, long-term weight loss If you starve yourself, you may begin to lose weight because you are reaching a caloric deficit, but the long-term effects are counterproductive. Your body responds to starvation by slowing down metabolism. The body thinks you are entering a state of famine, where food is unavailable. It slows your body\'s processes in an effort to conserve what energy it has stored --- in other words, it holds onto fat. When you start eating normally, your metabolism will have slowed, meaning that the number of calories you need to maintain your weight is far lower than when you started --- and setting you up to gain weight by going back to your pre-starvation habits.  
Time to get Serious about Weight Loss
20 February 2015
When u want to lose weight, it sounds as if it’s quite an easy task .  Initially the motivation is also very high  to hit the gym regularly and choose the right foods,, but after a few weeks, our motivation seems to wane and those old, unhealthy habits of yours start to creep back in. What looked so easy at first is now difficult. You start craving. You\'re tired. That morning .workout class doesn\'t seem as fun, and getting up without hitting the alarm seems impossible. Sound familiar? So many of us have fallen into this diet and exercise trap over the years. You decide you want to lose weight, start a program, and even start to see some results and then…life gets in the way. Before you know it, you\'re off your healthy living plan again. Whereas the tools and resources that make weight loss fun and uplifting—a true lifestyle change—you still need to commit to using them. You have to commit now and, well, forever. You have to choose to change your life, both when life is breezy and when things aren\'t going your way. Whether you have 1kgor 20 kg to lose, you have to get serious to reach your goals. So you need to get real this time. You need to get committed to your weight-loss efforts this time. If any of the five signs below sound like you, then you  really need to get committed to getting healthy. 5 Signs It\'s Time to Get Real about Weight Loss Sign #1: You keep waiting to start. If you really want or need to lose weight but keep putting it off until tomorrow, next week, or even later in the future, you\'re not serious about weight loss. There is no perfect time to lose weight; you\'ll always have to deal with stress and work and LIFE, and there\'s no better way to get started than to jump right in today. Don\'t put off getting healthy for another day. Get healthy now. Why waste another day? Right this second you can start improving your health by doing something as simple as going for a short walk, choosing the stairs over the elevator.. There\'s no time like the present. Your life starts now! Be consistent with your Diet: Tell your friends and family that you\'re committed to changing your life and losing weight the right way. Then write down simple things that you can do TODAY to be healthier, such as drinking a glass of water, walking around the block once or eating two fewer bites than you normally would. By sharing your goals, you\'ll stay accountable and with this small start, you\'ll build momentum to make more changes.  Sign #2: Breathlessness and lethargies  If you get breathless after walking or any small activity.  It’s time to get serious. With regular exercise and some simple food swaps, you can be back to your usual self and live your dreams.  Focus on functionality , motivation, make a list of the things you want to do but can\'t do comfortably (or at all) right now. Weight los isn\'t just about wearing smaller pants size; it will help you live the life you want. Your motivation can come from the list you made—all of your goals and dreams, both big and small. Then, with your nutritionist, begin a healthy lifestyle program today. Go for regular walks to improve your cardiovascular fitness .. Before you know it, the weight will drop, but more importantly, you\'ll be able to do all the things you love to do.  Sign #3: You\'re facing chronic health issues.  Being overweight or obese puts a huge strain on your body and increases your risk for many major health problems, which  includes  diabetes, coronary heart disease and stroke, metabolic syndrome, osteoarthritis, gallbladder disease, fatty liver disease, pregnancy complications and premature death. If any of these conditions run in your family or you know that you\'re at risk due to your weight or lifestyle, see a doctor right away. You can no longer treat weight-loss as an option. It\'s a necessity for you to save your own life. Live longer and healthier:. If you do have any health issues, seek treatment and ask the doctor what types of physical activity you can do and if there are any dietary restrictions. Once your doctor has given the OK, get started with and good weight loss programme with a Nutritionist to find a healthier you. Sign #4: You give up easily.  Do you leave the weight-loss programme after you eat a cookie or a pastry? Then you need to get real .. Health and weight issues don\'t result from one small mistake during a 24-hour period; it\'s what you do day after day time after time that really counts. You don\'t have to be perfect, but you do have to be consistent So stop beating yourself up for every mistake. We all make them! It\'s what you do next that matters. Commit to making healthy choices most of the time, and you will reach your goals! Get back on track: Promise that you\'ll  be consistent and get back if you deviate from your plan, and create a get-back-on-track plan. . Sign #5: You\'re envious of others who have lost weight.  If you feel self-conscious about your body and size around others or feel extremely jealous of other people who have lost weight, then it\'s time for you to focus your energies on your own self-improvement. These feelings may signal something deeper that needs your attention. As you might guess, weight-loss isn\'t just about choosing to eat right and exercise. Many times, it\'s also about having the self-worth to make a change and believing that you deserve to do something positive for yourself! Make yourself a priority: Stop comparing yourself to others. Everyone\'s journey and circumstances are different. So instead of wondering why you weren\'t blessed with a faster metabolism like your co-worker was, focus on your own positives The next time you become envious or self-conscious, remind yourself that you deserve good things in life, too, so commit to make healthy choices. Losing weight is hard work, but the change begins with you and it starts right now. If any of these signs describe you, it\'s time to stop talking about weight loss and commit to it.
