OK, so you want to lose those extra pounds but you've been on every diet in the world; none of which worked and you're at you wits end. Believe me I've been there too, so here are a few tips that helped me get over the "diets don't work" hump.
1. Don't think of it as a diet. Stop thinking of the changes you make as temporary while you wait to be able to go back to the way you were living before. There's an old saying, "If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you always got." To create a new and healthy you, change your habits for good.
2. Say daily affirmations. I believe your thoughts are at least as important as anything else you can do. It's important for you to realize that every thought you have immediately affects your body. So when you think, "I'm fat," your body will create that. Your first step is to start monitoring your thinking and replace any thoughts about being overweight with "I'm becoming my ideal weight" Affirmations must be positive and stated as though they are already true.
3. Exercise. It is very difficult to loose weight without exercise. Walking is the best so think of ways to take more steps everyday. Park further from the door; take the stairs instead of the elevator. Then find fun ways like biking, or dancing to get a little more exercise because as we all know the more calories you burn the more pounds come off.
4. Eat smaller portions 5 or 6 times a day. This will keep you from getting too hungry. Make sure to eat at least one big salad each day. It should contain dark greens like romaine lettuce and spinach, and add all kinds of veggies, then a little bit of sugarless oil and vinegar dressing. If you follow this tip you won't starve yourself and you won't be hungry either.
If you will take just these four tips, practice them everyday, you'll be off to a great start in getting those extra pounds to melt off. You can be your ideal weight and stay that way for the rest of your life.
