What are 5 ways to lose weight?


When you are struggling with your weight and finding it very difficult to get motivated to start, these are my top 5 tips I advise anyone to follow. Being overweight, not fitting into clothes, feeling depressed and deeply hurt at nasty comments, can have lifelong implications on a person’s morale. The motivation to get started on a healthy eating plan is deep down in us all, but we use so many excuses to avoid getting started. Delaying tactics like a forth-coming weekend away or visitors are arriving are common to most of us. The inner voice making empty promises about starting next week!

1st tip to get back on track

What is the best day to start a diet to lose weight?


1 Well, here is my 1st TIP for you, START TODAY: don’t put it off until tomorrow! Don’t put it off until next Monday, because you know what – next Monday will come and there will be another excuse.  Oh, I have to wait, there’s a birthday, there’s a weekend:away! We plan to go on holidays! Start today, get one day over, get it under your belt. Think of how good you are going to feel by the time your holidays start! Make that decision and be determined, because the birthday or the holidays will come and go, and you will still be struggling to get started. It is not to say that you cannot still go out and enjoy yourself, so start today, get yourself into a healthier frame of mind.

What is a healthy shopping list?


Slim R Us 2nd tip

2 My 2nd TIP is about when you go out SHOPPING? Why are you torturing yourself in the biscuit aisle or the crisp’s aisle, where these things that you just cannot control are? You know you cannot control them, because in your head, you are saying to yourself, the visitors might be coming, I better have something in!

Shopping list to get back on track

Oh, the children need a treat, whispers the inner voice. Buy the treats for the children because it is not to say the children can’t have their treats, but buy items that you don’t particularly like! Perhaps now is the time to really consider what treats you are buying for your family. Is it time to consider that you may be leading your family down the road you are currently on?

That’s really the secret, because if you cannot get your snacking under control, you’re going to reach for whatever is there. Whatever is the handiest, and you’ve told yourself that this is for the children. Deep down in your heart and soul, you know it is for you. I know I’ve been there. It has happened to me!

Weight loss and hunger


3rd tip to get back on track


3 My 3rd TIP today would be to only EAT WHEN YOU ARE HUNGRY. We have got into such a habit of snacking for no reason, grazing for no reason, we’re just sitting there constantly and continuously eating. Without even realizing what we’re nibbling on, while sitting at the television having a cup of tea, our mouth is moving!. Having a biscuit that turns into half a pack of biscuits without even thinking about it, happens really quickly.

Eat when you are hungry to lose weight

Eat when you’re hungry, and that is not to say you cannot have any snacks. Of course you can, but make SMART CHOICES when you sit down to snack. Think about fruit instead of crisps, think of making sugar-free jellies and sugar-free souffle. There are so many recipes to choose from on the Slim R Us website and very often in these blogs.
