Want to lose weight? Let’s join us on Weight Loss Wednesday on She Exists! In my last post I talked about the 5-Psychological Dos we can start with, that were Make up Your Mind, Motivate Yourself, Be Positive, Set Small Milestones, Make a Plan for You. Check complete post Here. Now when you’re done making up your mind, you can now work on your plans. So today I’ll talk about the start-up steps to cut some pounds down:
1) Check Scale Every Week
The first thing before even starting the efforts is to check the number on scale, I remember I , myself said that this number is not important but your self satisfaction and inner beauty is, but It’s important for the start of effort and keep the track of your progress. Make a habit to check the scale once in a week. Not more than once, it’s the best psychological trait to reduce your weight.
2) Spare an Hour
In my last post I mentioned to make a plan for you, now act on that plan. Spare an hour only for you in your all hectic day and spend on your plan. It can be morning, evening or night time as suit to your routine. but keep in mind that NEVER change or let anyone interfere in that time.
3) Work on your Eating Habits
i. The first step towards weight loss process is to eat healthy when it comes about taking actions and putting efforts. Work on your eating habits.
ii. DO NOT STARVE, eat healthy but don’t take TOO MUCH HEALTHY FOOD.
iii. Eat less and healthy to fulfill the daily meal requirements. Take high protein and less carbohydrates food.
iv. Don't eat in hurry, all food is yours.
v. Avoid eating fried stuff and fast food; replace it with fruits, vegetable salads and high protein food. Avoid mayo and cheesy stuff as well.
4) See What you Drink
When it comes about drinks, nothing can ever compete water. It’s 0 calories drink, fulfill our hydrating requirements, keep our cholesterol in control and dissolve our fats into liquid. Take minimum 12-16 glass of water a day to reduce your weight. It’s good to keep a bottle with you all time. At start you’ll feel a bit heavy and stomach out but then you’ll start reducing fast.
It's better to take water and herbal teas instead of soft drinks, teas and coffee.
Plus there’re other lots of benefits we can get from water, it helps us from shrinking our liver size and keep our skin moist and fresh.

Be more activate and participant in different activities than staying lazy on couch and watching television with snacks and put on weight. Stay active and get more chances to reduce your pounds.

9) Work Smart than Work Hard
It’s not important to work hard, it’s important to work smart. If you spend all your day in starving and working hard and still not getting same results, think that you’re doing something wrong. Correct your nutrition, fitness and other goals towards your success.
