10 Simple Weight Loss Tips That Really Work

1. Prioritize your exercise. The beds might not get made or the car cleaned but still make time for exercise. Schedule it in and let go of other things — like a perfectly clean house or car..

2. Keep an exercise log. It makes you more accountable.

3. Set a goal. Sign up for some fun runs and try to improve your times. Have small achievable goals.

4. Make changes for the long haul. Don’t sacrifice the long-term aim for a short-term gain.

5. Stop dieting and just eat sensibly.

6. Drink up. Drinking lots of water keeps you full and hydrated.

7. Do it for yourself. If somebody else is pushing you, no matter what you do or what you try, it’ll never work long-term.

8.Take it slow. We all want to lose it yesterday, but slow is the way to go if you don’t want to see those pounds again.

9. Customize your approach. What worked for your best friend may not work for you. And what works for you today may not work six months from now. You need to decide what you need. Make changes you can live with. Ask yourself, ‘Is what I did today something I could do for the rest of my life?’

10. Be consistent and build habits of eating and exercise. Be in control and know that this is what you really want to do.

These simple 10 tips can fit into your lifestyle, no matter how fast paced. You can utilize them to keep those extra-unwanted pounds off, starting today!
