How to Get Started Losing Weight
Losing weight is a tricky venture. Some people try, and have some success and ultimately end up right where they began, all while feeling bad about it. The yo-yo dieting effort is a vicious cycle. Diets aren’t the answer, but lifestyle changes are.
Let’s think about losing weight as a series of small steps and changes in your life, ones that are manageable and sustainable. Taking advice from someone who is fit and in shape is a tough pill to swallow for some, but there was a time in my life where I was 40 pounds heavier than I am now and living a very unhealthy lifestyle.
I know where you are coming from and how it can be overwhelming to get started with contradictory fitness and nutrition information. Where do you begin? Just how do you make those steps in the right direction? It’s not just working hard in the gym, although that is a great first step. There are many things to consider and some of them are ridiculously simple.
