What To Do Before Starting A Weight Loss Plan

Starting a weight loss plan can be both fun and daunting at the same time. You’re opening up new possibilities for yourself, but at the same time, you’ll be changing a lot of things that you’re used to. Many people get stuck in their heads when they start planning to lose weight, a mindset which can make the whole endeavor fail. However, with enough preparation, you can have a weight loss program that works.
It’s important not to set yourself up for failure. Before you even begin forming a weight loss diet plan, get it in your head that you will succeed. As long as you pace yourself and remain realistic, you can set out to achieve your goals.
To maximize your chances for success, it’s best to prepare for what lies ahead. Don’t just begin your weight loss plan without preparing for it, because that’s like going up on stage at a dance recital without ever learning the routine. Here are a few things you’ll need to know and remember before you start on your weight loss plan.
Go easy on yourself
A lot of past diet fads advised the removal of certain types of food from your diet. While doing this can help you gain some short term success, it’s not the best for long-term success. Thus, it’s not really a weight loss plan that really works. If you deprive yourself of foods that you’ve always loved, there’s a huge chance that you’ll be tempted to try a “bite” of that forbidden ambrosia. That little “bite”, no matter how much you deny to yourself that it will ever happen, will eventually lead to binging. This isn’t really a hallmark of a weight loss program that works
Just imagine completely cutting one of your favorite foods out of a weight loss diet plan. Let’s say that this food is pizza. You love pizza, but you have to give it up. Then, your friends order a pizza for movie or game night. You think to yourself, “just one bite won’t hurt”, but then you find yourself scarfing down whole slices. We want what we want, and we want what we can’t have even more. It’s best to not play mind games with yourself like that when you need a weight loss eating plan to be effective.
Set attainable goals
One thing that can set us up for failure in any venture is having unrealistic expectations and goals. We’re more prone to giving something up if we can’t reach even the short term goals. However, we have to ask ourselves: are we just incapable of succeeding at what we set out to do, or are we expecting too much too soon?
In weight loss, it’s most likely the latter. A weight loss plan that really works is manageable and only a little daunting.
One thing you can do is keep a journal that tracks your progress and keeps an account of what you mean to achieve for each week. You should also make your goals as specific as possible. Instead of writing “lose two pounds” as your goal for the month, break it down to more specific and manageable steps. You can thus have a weight loss plan that won’t drive you crazy because it’s easier to follow and track.

Until then, good luck in your eight loss journey, and remember you can do this!

Heart Disease And Exercise

The heart is a muscle and needs exercise to stay in shape. When it's exercised, the heart can pump more blood through the body and continue working at optimal efficiency with little strain. This will likely help it to stay healthy longer. Regular exercise also helps to keep arteries and other blood vessels flexible, ensuring good blood flow and normal blood pressure and cholesterol.
When it comes to exercise, a little bit performed regularly goes a long way. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), exercising 30 minutes a day, five days a week will improve your heart health and help reduce your risk of heart disease. You can even break it up into quick and manageable 10-minute sessions, three times a day.
Just be sure to check with your doctor before starting a new exercise routine, as exercising with a heart condition can put extra strain on your heart. Learn the signs of heart trouble during exercise and don’t over-exert yourself.....and remember you can do this!

Never Give Up On Your Weight Loss Journey

Never Give Up, Never, Never Give Up, Never Ever Give Up, Never Give UP!  

That’s right, the secret key to losing weight is not a new fad diet, it’s not a new medication, it’s not a bunch of gimmick supplements, it is A STATE OF MIND!

Let’s face it. You tried to lose weight in the past, and you failed. So what! The key is what do you do now. 

Do you give up, or do you start again. Anyone and everyone who has ever successfully lost weight and kept it off has failed in the past at one time or another. 

However, the reason they were finally able to lose the weight, was because they NEVER GIVE UP..

I know how hard and frustrating it can be,  trust me, because I have been there as well, but trust me never give up. If you have a bad day and eat a bunch of fatty junk, so what, forget about it. Just do not give up, never.

Forget past mistakes. Forget failures. Forget everything except what you’re going to do RIGHT NOW and do it. Just start a new day and never give up.  If you tried to lose weight, and it did not work, try something different.


Have you ever considered the cost of quitting? For a real eye opener…what if these individuals had quit.... Thomas Edison...Steve Jobs…Michael Jordan…or Sylvester Stalone. Ask them how much it would have cost them if they had quit. What about you? What will it cost you? For starters it can cost you your life...yes your life, and if it did, think of the love ones who will be left behind,...yes it will cost them dearly as well.

So ask yourself, is this what you want, are you truly trying to hurt not only yourself, but the ones you love as well.

I know what Im saying may be harsh, but sometimes we have to hear the truth, and if me giving you this real talk will get you moving, then I've done my take the inspiration and go, you can do this, and you will do this, and remember "Today Iz The Day".

Self - Motivational Phrase

When working out try visualizing your goals, come up with a phrase that states what you are striving for, and speak it out loud when doing your exercises. 

Some of the phrases I used when I was losing my weight were, ”Today Iz The Day" and "Why wait.....” If you say this over and over, and you are not what you are speaking,  or doing what you should be doing, your mind will sense a mismatch and then have to adjust to make the connection.

When the connection is finally made, we discover the golden nugget we have been in search of..... which is called "TRANSFORMATION"
