Do you always look at your pics taken a couple of years ago, and give a long sigh ? Have you stopped looking at yourself in the mirror, for the simple reason that you hate looking at yourself in the mirror ?
But, whatever happened to that attractive personality who was slim and trim and the cynosure of all eyes. Two years down, and all that has changed. You have added a number of pounds to that slim frame of yours and tires to your midriff. What happened ??
You have just let go of yourself, binged at parties, and hogged at dinners… and all those beers haven’t done a wee bit of good. Understandable, that you are beginning to lose your charm.
You will have to take control of yourself and repair that personality of yours! The first item on the agenda would be to lose 10 pounds flat within a period of 1 month. That’ll do for a start.
When you are aiming to lose weight, you need to plan all the 24 hours of your time, which includes proper sleep, nutrition, hydration, and fitness. A considerable portion of the success of your fitness program depends on your diet, and how many calories you tuck in. But, at the same time, you should not adopt a deprivation-style low calorie diet. Stick to about 1200 to 1600 calories every day, and maintain a food journal to see how many calories you are ingesting.
Remember your goal of losing 10 pounds in a month and stay motivated. Are you finding it difficult to stay focused on your goal? Don’t worry, we are here to help you stay focused and achieve your target. And, above all, no second thoughts about giving up the program.
Here are a few tips to help you on How to lose 10 pounds:
Keep a track of your progress: It is essential to keep a track of your progress. Write down your goal and leave it in 2-3 places where it can be seen prominently – on the mirror, on the fridge, or on your computer. Beneath your goal make a note of how many pounds you have lost in the 1st week, how many in the 2nd week, and so on. Your progress is your best morale booster.
Junk food: Throw all the junk food out of your house – if you don’t have the heart to throw it, give it to someone else, or donate it to an orphanage. The only way to ward off temptation is not to have any junk food in the house. Keep only the food that you are supposed to eat.
Appetite: The most important thing for you is to curb your appetite. The best and the safest way is to drink water. Drink water at least half an hour before a meal. If you are an impulsive or compulsive eater, you can distract yourself by reading a book, taking in a movie or a TV show, or getting involved in a hobby.
Workouts: Get a partner for your workouts. You will find it very useful to have a partner who will be helpful in maintaining your time schedule. Moreover, you will not be inclined to miss a session with a partner around. Try it!
Sleep: Get plenty of sleep – every adult should get on an average 6-8 hours of sleep. Try to go to bed and wake up, more or less, at the same time every day. So, no more sitting before the computer or the TV past midnight!
Drinks: Minimize your consumption of alcohol. A drink, now and then is ok, but nothing more. Anything more will throw your dieting program out of the window.
Stick to the above program and there is no way you cannot achieve your goal. Try it and you will definitely succeed. You can take our word for it!!
