Have you tried several diets already and do they all result in the same: gaining even more weight after your have finished your diet? Stop pushing yourself and live much more relaxed. There is an easier way to lose weight. Stop hurting yourself and start living!
Choose the sport you love
Some people are just not meant to do sports. If you are one of them, than you must be thrilled to know that there are easier ways to exercise. How about you start dancing in the living room, when everybody is out? Or you play tag with your kids in a park nearby? Go to a playground and do games with your kids. Fun guaranteed and it does not feel like you are doing sports. You could also take your kids to a swimming pool or go cycling with your partner or with a friend. Be creative!
It all starts in the supermarket
Yes the supermarket. That is where you make the choice to eat healthy or not. Just try this for a few times: when you pass by the aisle of the candy and cookies, you just keep on walking. Instead you make a turn to the nuts or to the fruits and vegetables and choose at least two items in that aisle. Pick the things that you really like, even when it is more expensive. Rather reward yourself with something healthy, than with candy and bad stuff. And this rule is crucial: never (ever, ever) go to the supermarket when you are hungry.
Relax and track your weight
Do you know that relaxing is key to loose weight? This is not about sitting on the couch to watch a movie, but about becoming relaxed inside your head. How can you do that? By doing something that you really love. Think of painting, playing music, sewing, drawing, writing or helping others. Stop worrying about what others think of you. It is not their life, it is yours. You decide, you take control. When you weigh yourself every day, it will become frustrating. Rather buy a body composition monitor and weigh yourself once a week or once every two weeks. Do not only focus on your weight. With the segmental body composition scales from Tanita.co.uk, you can keep track of your body fat percentage, muscle mass, heart rate and metabolic age. So maybe you do not lose weight, but you can see that your body is changing in a good way.
