Things to Do This Week to Lose Weight

Things to Do This Week to Lose Weight

Once you've made the decision to lose some weight then it's time to take action. Thinking about losing weight won't make any difference to the weighing scales and it won't make the button any easier to fasten on your pants, if you want to lose weight you've got to actually do something about it.

Here are some things which you should do this week at the start of your journey to a lighter, fitter you.

Make a Plan

Before you head off to the supermarket and pick up a bunch of salad along with your usual jelly donuts, stop and make a plan. Losing weight starts in the kitchen and what ends up in the kitchen starts on your grocery shopping trip. A healthy weight is only achieved by eating healthy, balanced meals so plan out your weekly menu and try to stick to it. Look for fresh foods and choose low fat or healthy alternatives to your usual favorites.

Make Your Own Treat

We all need a treat every now and then to prevent boredom from setting in. Some people like to treat themselves with a pizza, others like a takeaway. Think about your favorite treat and how you can make it at home using alternative healthier ingredients. Lots of popular takeaway dishes can be replicated at home with fewer calories yet equal or even more flavor. If you really can't give up on your takeaway then try to think about choosing one which is healthier than your usual meal. Every little helps.

Get Active

You are going to need to increase your activity level if you are really serious about losing some weight so now's the time to start thinking about what you 're going to do, where you're going to do it and how often. The amount of physical activity which is right for you is largely dependent upon your age.  People aged between 20 and 60 years should aim for at least 30 minutes moderately intense aerobic activity five times per week - this could include things like brisk walking and cycling or taking up some sort of exercise class. If you really want to lose serious amounts of weight you may need even more than that.

Watch Out for the Danger Zone

Everyone has their potential danger zones lurking in the days ahead, think about them and decide upon a plan of attack. The danger zones could be the times when you are most likely to eat lots of high sugar foods - maybe because you will be eating out or maybe because it's the end of a long, hard week and you usually treat yourself to something naughty. Plan ahead about how you can limit these danger foods but don't be too hard on yourself, everybody needs a little treat sometime.

The most effective way to lose weight and keep healthy is by adopting a lifestyle change and these could be the first steps towards your healthier lifestyle. Not only will you lose weight but you will also feel fitter and happier than you could imagine.
