Life Changing Weight Control Tips

Losing weight isn't easy, but with determination, a good attitude and an experienced fitness professional you can get long term health benefits. There are numerous studies, countless books and videos about fitness professionals influencing thousands of people to lose weight and keep it off. We can learn from these examples on what it takes to achieve a fitness based lifestyle.

Lose weight for your health

Have you asked why you want to lose weight.? We all have our reasons to this question. If you are trying to be unrealistically thin or looking for rapid weight loss over a few weeks. You are likely to be disappointed and experience frustration when your body refuses to meet these goals.  If good health is your goal, you will be happy to know that this is the best path to help you reach and achieve those goals is by adding more physical activity and making better food choices. Even though this method will be slow, you will be achieving your most important goal: good health now and in the future.

Try to lose 10% of your weight

Current studies demonstrate that losing as little as 10 % of your bodyweight helps create enormous benefits which improve the regulation of :
Blood Pressure

  • blood sugar
  • lower blood pressure 
  • improved blood cholesterol levels. 
The best way to lose weight and keep it off is to change and modify your current lifestyle. Be patient with yourself. Changing habits can be difficult.

Make your lifestyle change your goal.

People who have successfully lost 20 or more pounds and have kept that weight off for a year or more achieved their success by changing two things:

Group Training

  • their physical activities 
  • eating habits
The secrets to weight-loss success are not that secret, but the same consistent information that you have been hearing over the years: EAT LESS and EXERCISE more! Rather than focusing on how much weight you lost that week, focus on how many days you took 10,000 steps that equals ( 5.2 miles ) or how many days you performed some form of physical activity for at least 20 -30 minutes that week.

Make changes you can live for forever

Making a commitment to lifelong change can be a challenge, but your ideal weight is a product of daily habits. To reach your  desired weight loss, you will need to maintain a higher level of physical activity per day and week and practice your new eating habits. You'll have more success if you make manageable changes that you can live with.

Exercise daily

Exercising daily can help you reach your weight loss goals. Those clients who are successful at losing weight often exercise 30-60 minutes/day and do this @ least 3-4 more times per week.  At this level of you'll be burning a lot of calories.  Of course, If you are not accustomed to exercise, check with your fitness professional first and begin slowly, gradually increasing the amount and intensity of the exercise you do each day.

Keep records 


Keeping track of your activity is a great way for you to stay motivated. By recording your fitness activity and food intake you can stay on point. Keeping records helps to keep you honest and focused. It may seem tedious and a bit boring at first,  it won't take you more than a few minutes each day to write you successes down and help you to stay the course.

Get some support

People who want to be successful at losing weight and keeping it off are best served when they receive the support of family members, friends and health professionals. One of the best support groups is finding and signing up with a fitness professional that can hold you accountable too staying the course on your fitness journey.

Recognize that change can be challenging

Changing behavior or habits can be a daunting task. Thoughts and beliefs that are enshrined as the holy grail now are antiquated and you have to hit reset. Try to plan ahead for those days when you have a thousand things to do and as a result you may not get the chance to exercise and eat right. Realize that changing habits takes effort. Remind yourself that your good health is a priority. When you do slip up, forgive yourself and get back on track as soon as possible.
