Can you name another weight loss company? In America alone the weight control industry reaches well over $30 billion per year! That's a lot of moola spent on getting slim, or at least the thought of getting slim. What do you hear about most of these programs, pills, and diets from users? That they didn't work.
The reason they didn't work isn't because the programs are flawed. Quite the contrary. These programs usually encourage eating the right foods, in accurate proportions, and exercising. So all the info and advice is right on the money. So why then don't these results typically scream success for ever single participant? Motivation, or lack thereof.
How did I loose 24 lbs? I counted my calories and exercised at least 5 days per week. Sure I used a tool that helped me along. I highly recommend it, at CalorieCount. It is a FREE (zero, zip, nada, zilch, NO CHARGE) online program where you enter your daily food intake and activity level. You can even enter SLEEP ('cause you do burn them there calories while you snooze:o)! Put in your current weight, your goal weight and goal date. If it's unrealistic the program helps you define a more doable goal.
Check it out and see for yourself. But you have to be ready for it. All the external stuff will do you a zip of good if you are not in a mental position to make a change. Don't beat yourself up if you're not, just love yourself and grow mentally. Become positive in your outlook and little by little as you gain the ability to see the good stuff in life, you'll have the ability to keep motivation for a long term goal.
I'm in another 'ugh' moment after seeing my scale tip past the 145 mark. The goal? You got it...125lbs, the goal date? October 3rd. Check out the site and let me know if you are going for a goal or any tips you have in the healthiness/weightloss/exercise department. This is gonna be a great ride!
