Optimal Weight Loss

While weight loss may be a sensitive issue for some, there are some key questions that you have to answer for yourself before your start. Losing weight begins with the right motivation, and if you don’t have a good reason to, then why should you? When beginning on your weight loss journey you should be able to answer these essential questions-


Why do you want to lose weight? Are you sick of carrying the extra baggage? Is it a medical concern? Are you doing it for someone else like your best friend or your children? All of these are relevant and important to answer before you begin losing weight. If you do not have a clear answer to your “why” then it will be harder to stay motivated to lose and keep it off.


Where do you want to lose weight? Are you looking for full body toning, or just working on a particular area of your body. Do your research! There are a plethora of online workouts that target specific areas of your body. If you are willing to spend a little extra, order a good program with a diet plan. One of my most recent programs I have been testing out is Beach Bodies Brazilian Butt Lift. It not only targets your buttocks, but your core, legs, and arms as well. Its super fun and easy to follow!


How are you going to lose? Get online and continue researching. One important key that I have learned over the past few years when it comes to losing weight is that diet is an essential key. My personal trainer told me that it attributes to 80% of weight loss. That’s a lot!

Don’t be intimidated by this thought, diet plans are easy to come by online. One of my favorite online diet plans is from Fit 2 Fat 2 Fit. Not only does he lay out what you should be eating each day but also offers a weekly shopping list for everything that you need to make your meals. The best part is, he offers a diet plan AND work out plan for both men and women!

Get motivated!

Once you have these question answered make a dream board. For those of you who are not familiar with this term, a dream board is a cluster of pictures and phrases that represent your dreams you would like to see come true. Don’t limit yourself to just pictures though—get creative by hanging up a swimsuit you would like to see yourself in. Buy that killer dress or pair of jeans you’ve always wanted and get those up there as well. Sooner or later you will be there, at your dream weight, feeling on top of the world.

A dream board is not the only route to take. In fact, one of my favorite ways to keep me motivated is by updating my music for my workouts. I am telling you, with the right music, you can move mountains.

All of these questions are essential to losing weight. You have to be able to answer them for yourself before you begin, otherwise it’s like rowing a boat on sand. You won’t get anywhere!

The Most Effective Weight Loss Program Involves Better Habits

Every member of the family probably recognizes the best way they can stay fit and remain slender, even if they require significant amount of weight loss.

Managing a weight loss system in an active family requires dedication of consuming a balanced diet, and performing regular exercise.

Hair Loss In Women

Every one of us loses hair every day.   We lose it during our shower, we lose it while we blow dry our hair or when we brush our hair and this loss is all normal.  Typically we lose an average of 50 to 100 hundred hairs per day and normally for each hair we lose, we grow a new one to replace it.  However, at times hair loss may be a sign of a more serious medical condition that needs to be evaluated by a dermatologist for possible treatment.  Here are some possible causes of hair loss in women and how to deal with them.


This is an autoimmune disorder where the immune system attacks the hair follicles.  This disease affects 4.7 million people in the U.S. and occurs equally between women and men.  The cause is not known for sure, but may be triggered by illness or stress.  The condition can occur in three in three different forms including alopecia areata, alopecia universalis and alopecia totalis.
