As an overweight person, the first thing we look for is a way to lose weight.
Most overweight people have tried and failed to lose weight in the past, so they know not what to believe or trust.
Reasons to lose weight:
1. Your Health
Health is not something to leave until to be decided upon. Your weight is a balancing act between what you eat (the food you eat) and what your body burns (the amount of calories you burn). If you eat more than you burn, you pile on weight, and if you eat less than you burn, you go into the negative calorie balance.
There are direct and indirect health risks associated with being overweight. For example: high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease, and diabetes.
If you have reached the point where losing weight is your main goal, then you have to be serious and honestly, you have to want to lose weight for you. A doctor will tell you EXACTLY what you are in for if you are overweight. Calories in being much more than calories out.
2. Your Fitness Levels
Keeping fit is a fantastic way to lose weight.
When you are fit, your body burns calories at a greater rate than when you are overweight. What’s more, you are probably much less probable to have any form of osteoarthritis.
With regular exercise you don’t just lose weight you tone up.You look better, and as well as looking better your heart gets stronger, the arteries clear up, your veins are less clogged, and your muscles get stronger. A healthier heart: that’s a good thing.
The level of fitness you have the more you are likely to be able to exercise, and to burn fat. The lower the level of fitness, the harder it is to lose weight.
Now don’t get me wrong, even modest levels of exercise will help you lose weight.
3. You Will Feel Better
Your body will feel better in so many ways, including in your mood, your sleep, your energy levels, your focus and concentration, and your self-confidence.
4. You Will Be More Confident
Losing weight will make you feel good about yourself. Losing weight can help you feel good about yourself just think about it.
Isn’t it fantastic? When you look good, you feel good about yourself.
You’ll get more compliments, and you will be more energetic. You will have higher self-esteem, and you will be much more likely to take chances and do things that you dare not do if you felt overweight.
5. You Will Become More Focused
Thinking clearly will bring about mental clarity, and focus is a badly needed part of losing weight. If you feel clear you will be able to make decisions, and you will realize the bad things that fatty foods do to your body.
You will be able to see the right opportunities and stop wasting time. When it all boils down everyone must have the self-discipline to accept the challenge of losing weight. You won’t loose weight by magic: you need to work on it, and then carry it out.
It is done in stages: your level of fitness, your choice of diet and exercise combination, the stages you must reach to get to the self-discipline stage, and the steps that you need to take to get there.
All the stages have equal requirements:
1. Will you pick the apple or the apple pie?
2. Are you satisfied with how you look?
3. Do you think you will enjoy living a healthy life such as walking more, eating more fresh fruits, vegetables, and fibre?
4. Are you prepared to stop eating fast food and highly processed foods?
5. Are you prepared to eat little and often?
When all five stages of the self-discipline process are synergistically working together, you will feel empowered to make the right choices in life and in your workouts.
