The Struggle Is Real

Dwight Obey, MBA, MSAJS
For anyone who has ever tried to lose weight, they understand when "I say the struggle is real". There is nothing more depressing then getting your weight down, and then falling off your routine, and BAM! BAM!, just like that you have gained back the 10-20lbs you had originally lost.

This can be depressing, and rightfully so, and if you are reading this, and this describes you, then Im here to let you know that instead of getting down on yourself, just say that I had a little lapse, but tomorrow is a new day, and i will start again.

Sounds simple I know, but you have come to far to just throw it all in, remember this" you did not put all the weight on in one day, and you surely are not going to take it off one day either.You control this situation and its up to you to take charge, remember its all on you, yes people may be able to encourage you along the way, but they cant do the work for you. You have to get up and move! One step at a time, everyday it becomes easier as you progress along.

Remember don't over do it, and remember some is better then none. Tell yourself you got this, because you really do have this, and its a piece of cake. No pun intended.

Be sure to let everyone know what . your goal is, and that you are starting a change for the better, and creating a new lifestyle. Try inviting friends, or family to join you along your new journey, and remember you can do this, because you are a WINNER!

Commit Yourself

Dwight Obey, MBA, MSAJS
It’s all in the mindset…first acknowledged that losing weight and sustaining that loss commands a lifetime of devotion.

Instead of concentrating on a “diet,” cast a wider net. Imagine a lifestyle revamp.

When people concentrate merely on the goal of weight loss, they are often left without direction on how to achieve that goal. Or even what to do when that goal is achieved. Instead, look at your lifestyle and choices that helped lead to the problem in the first place.

Focus on a healthy lifestyle and then a healthy weight. Set the stage for lasting habits. Once you’ve made the commitment, you can develop an action plan and get started.

Can Water Help Me Lose Weight

If you are like me you may have been wondering exactly how much water you should drink every day to stay healthy.

Unfortunately, that answer isn't really clear, although some say it's eight glasses a day, no matter how often you've been told that, the jury is still out on the exact amount.
Coming up with a one-size-fits-all water recommendation is difficult because our need for water varies based on age, size, activity level, and even the temperature.
The problem is so complex that the recommendation of the National Academies' Health and Medicine Division is basically no recommendation at all; the experts there state that most healthy people will be able to absorb an adequate amount of water from the foods and beverages they consume.
Basically nothing happens in the body without water. Every thought, movement, and feeling is the result of water moving from one place in the body to another. Water affects how you think, feel, absorb, digest, and metabolize.
It should be clear that if water is limited, the world of our body is not going to be optimal. However other research has stated that increasing water consumption can have significant health benefits, among them, weight loss.
Some have stated drinking at least four glasses of water a day increased weight loss. I think water can actually help promote weight loss in many ways, by substituting water for sugary beverages or juice; you've removed calories and carbohydrates.
When you have enough water, you can start seeing more efficient insulin pathways and an acceleration of fat burning.
In the absence of certainty about how much water we should be drinking, we should be reaching for water rather than concentrated juices, sugar-sweetened beverages, or even diet drinks.

Lack of Sleep and Weight Gain

We often think of diet as the quality of the food we eat, but it really also includes when you eat. Research has proven that messing with sleep and the body’s internal clock can cause you to eat at the wrong times and gain weight.
Overall, those who do not sleep, and eat late, consume about the same amount of calories per day as people who slept normally, but calories consumed after 8:00 p.m. are more strongly associated with weight gain.So don't let your lack of sleep, be the cause of your weight gain.

Before embarking on any strict diet, or workout regimen, be sure to consult your doctor.

Be Careful Of The False Promises For Quick Weight Loss

You know that plan, the ones we have all heard about on T.V., or read in the papers. Beware of the all too-good-to-be-true quick weight loss plans that promise weight loss without working up a sweat.
Any legitimate plan will require increased physical activity on your part, along with good healthy eating choices.

Working out not only burns up those extra calories, it also benefits your health in a number of other ways. It boosts your mood and raises your high-density lipoprotein (“good”) cholesterol level.
According to the National Institutes of Health, exercise reduces your risk of some of the more well none chronic diseases including:

Heart disease
Type 2 diabetes
Certain types of cancer

According to the NIH, about 2.5 hours of exercise per week is a sensible goal. Getting some amount of physical activity each day will help you create a lasting healthy habit. By combining cardiovascular exercise with strength training and flexibility training, you can get the most of your time spent working out.

How Many Less Calories Must I Consume Daily To Lose Weight?

Several plans, including cleanses, ask followers to stick to really strict calorie allowances. But an insufficient amount of calories can leave you substantially drained and may potentially sap your drive, and determination.   Not enough calories can trigger your body into thinking its starving, causing it to go into starvation mode, maintaining and holding onto the calories you do take in.
Some dieters have found success with the 500 Rule.  Slashing 500 calories a day leads to a loss of 1 pound per week (1 pound equals 3,500 calories). But for some people, specifically those who are very active, slashing 500 calories can be too much, causing depletion in their energy levels.
The ballpark figure doesn’t factor in gender, activity level, or muscle mass, all of which affect how many calories your body needs each day.  According to most health practitioners, a safe and attainable goal is 1 to 2 pounds per week. When you lose at this slower pace you’re more likely to keep the weight off.
As always before taking on a new weight loss regimen, you should consult your physician first.
