Lose Weight - Let Go Of The Excuses And Get The Right Information To Get Started

By John Purfield

If you’re a parent and conscious about your weight, the worse thing in the world is when your own kids think you’re fat. When my kids called me fat I was hurt. However, I knew that it was true. I also wondered what type of example I am setting for them.

While it’s polite to say that there is nothing wrong with being overweight and “accept who you are”, I find there is some lack of accountability with that approach. Especially since there are many health risks associated with being overweight.

Also, how can being overweight not take a poke at your self confidence? If being overweight is discouraging, the good news is we have control to drop the weight and get in shape.

First thing we have to do is put aside all the mental stuff as to why we can’t lose weight. Let go of the excuses and make the decision to break the cycle. There are many options available for people who want to lose weight and get in shape. However, the best option is to start working out. Here are some tips to help you out.

Recognize is there is a lot of information out there to help you lose weight and get in shape. Sometimes there is too much information. You need to know the right information. While everyone has their own custom plan with a tag line included, we run into information overload and wind up going in many different directions.

One thing to do is prioritize the information you want to read and also make the decision if it fits into your current plan. Remember, when you prioritize the information you are not dismissing it right away. However, you may find it useful for future workouts.

Keep in mind that its common knowledge that the way you lose weight and get in shape is to eat right and exercise. You might think that it's impossible, since there are those who have been doing a lot of exercises and dieting for many years and yet they don’t get results. However, the secret is that we need to actually work at it.

You don’t have to work hard at it to the point where it's not enjoyable. However, you just need to know you have to put in some hard work at some point in the day to get somewhere.

These are just some suggestions to help you sift through all the information and achieve the ultimate weight loss that you want to accomplish. So if you're planning to lose weight, start by giving yourself permission to work hard at it. Keep it simple, know you have to work hard and find the right foods to eat. You’ll be successful.
