10 New Year’s Resolutions for Those Who Want to Lose Weight
Do you want to lose weight? If so, now is the time to incorporate your weight loss goals into your New Year’s resolution. Although many individuals make the resolution to lose weight, you may want to take a different approach. Yes, still have your main goal be weight loss, but create many small, mini New Years resolutions. When you focus on all areas of weight loss, instead of just it in general, you are more likely to see success.
So, what are some good weight loss New Year’s resolutions?
1 – Eat Healthy
Eating healthy is an easy way to lose weight. In fact, it requires little or no physical effort on your part. Instead of snacking on a package of cookies, opt for a handful of grapes or an apple. Eliminate soda from your diet or opt for diet soda instead. Reduce your portion sizes. If this is difficult, start eating with a smaller plate.
2 – Don’t Bring Junk Food into Your Home
Saying you want to eat healthy is nice, but actually doing so is another thing. If you have a weakness for junk food, it is unlikely you will be able to eat healthy if you still have junk food in your home. So, eliminate it. This will take a lot of resilience at the grocery store, but avoid aisles or sections that have your favorite junk foods. If you only have healthy foods in your home, you will eat it. So, make one of your New Year’s resolutions to rid your home of junk food and keep it that way.
3 – Stay Away from Diet Food Aisles
As previously stated, you want to keep junk food out of your home, but you don’t need diet food. Look for foods that are healthy, such as fruits and vegetables. In terms of packaged and processed foods, always opt for those with low calories and low fat. Of course, you can buy diet foods, but know that you are paying more for brand name than anything else.
4 – Exercise
Aside from healthy eating, the next most important component of weight loss is exercise. In terms of exercise, you have many different options. You can go for walks outside, purchase a gym membership, or do exercise videos in the comfort of your own home.
Those who already exercise, but still want to lose weight are encouraged to increase their workouts. Add an extra 15 minutes or opt for workouts that are more intensive.
5 – Walk More
When you walk, you are getting exercise. With that said, it isn’t always referred to as an exercise routine, but that doesn’t mean it can’t become one. If you are looking to lose weight, make one of your mini New Year’s resolutions to be walking more. Park in the back of the parking lot, take the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator, walk down the street the post office instead of driving, and so forth. The more you walk the more calories you burn.
6 – Get a Workout Buddy
If you are serious about losing weight and have more than 10 pounds to lose, it can be difficult. You will not experience an immediate weight loss. And, when you do lose weight, it can be difficult to keep it off. For that reason, get a workout buddy. This person will be your support. Whether you and your workout buddy exercise together daily or meet weekly for updates, this support can help you turn your New Year’s resolution into a reality.
7 – Buy an MP3 Player
If you don’t already have an MP3 player, buy one. They are very affordable now. You do not need to have the latest iPod. Instead, opt for a cheap MP3 player.
8 – Use Your MP3 Player
Not only do you want to buy an MP3 player, but use it. One of the many reasons why people stop exercising is because they are bored. Use iTunes or another legal music program to purchase and download your favorite music. Listen to it when working out.
9 – Talk to Your Doctor
If you are overweight or obese, you may fear going to do the doctor. After all, who wants a lecture on the dangers of being overweight? Don’t feel this way. Instead, make the resolution to schedule an appointment with your primary care physician. He or she can help you devise the perfect weight loss plan.
10 – Don’t Give Up
