Its time to get your body ready for summer!


Wouldnt you like to have that rockin body everyone looks at??
Hey loves! So as I was watching the snow fall today I started to think and normally the snow makes people lazy and not want to go out anywhere but it did the complete opposite for me! Its already mid January! Spring and summer are already around the corner so that means its time to start whipping back into shape and getting your body bikini ready! If any one is an expert in weight loss I would definitely say I have first hand experience because I was once a "BIG" girl but after following the steps I am going to provide you with I lost an incredible amount of weight and it has stayed off! I am no longer ashamed to share my story!


The First Step to losing weight!

The first step to losing weight involves getting your mind and body ready for the long journey ahead. Safe and long-term weight maintenance requires a lifetime commitment to a healthier lifestyle. Start your new lifestyle by analyzing your habits and determining where you want your weight loss to take you.

System Cleanse
Yes! I mean a colon cleanse I do this 4 times a year to eliminate toxic waste and help slim down my stomach! Go to your local health store like GNC or VitaminWorld and pick one up! Once your system is cleansed you can start a fresh diet by eating healthy. Add more vegetables,soup,salad and fruits and water into your diet!

Food and Exercise Diary

The very first step to losing weight involves determining what bad habits you have. Keeping a food and exercise diary can help you see your poor eating habits and track the amount of exercise you do each week. Write down everything you eat or drink throughout the day, including small bites taken while cooking. Your journal may help you identify emotional eating and other bad habits if you also write down how you felt when you ate, how full you were after eating, what you did during the meal and who you ate with. Continue keeping your journal throughout your weight loss to help you track progress and to remain accountable for your eating and exercise habits.

I have an app in my iphone that does all of this for me I just have to put in the information and it keeps track of my weight what I eat my calories etc. If you have a smart phone try downloading the app Lose IT! Trust me it helps!

Goals

Goals help you plan your weight loss step by step as you transition into a healthier lifestyle. Plan to reach your goal weight slowly through small weekly changes to your diet and exercise routine. Analyze your food and exercise diary to determine areas you can change. Set realistic targets that promote gradual changes to your lifestyle. Make your goals achievable. For instance, make aim to lose 1 lb. each week by exercising 30 minutes each day and reducing your portion sizes to one serving. Goals that aim for things like losing 10 lb. in one week tend to undermine your weight loss attempts.


Emotional Readiness

Major life distractions and emotional issues may interfere with your weight loss success. Common emotional barriers include marital stress, financial difficulties, illness, anxiety, depression, job stress and eating disorders. Try to eliminate emotional issues as part of your analysis of your weight loss readiness. Some issues, such as past eating disorders, anxiety and depression may need professional intervention.

Support

Support provides the final part of the analysis phase prior to starting weight loss. Think about the people in your life that may help or hinder your weight loss attempts. Temptation and setbacks occur frequently during weight loss. Make sure you have someone you can turn to for support and encouragement. If no one in your life can fulfill this role, consider joining a support group for weight loss or find ways to keep your motivation high.
