  • Aim low

    I've read a lot of reviews that people leave for weight management products, stating that they've lost 20 pounds in a month. This is such bull. Unless you are seriously overweight and doing dramatic things like eating too few calories and exercising all the time, will you lose that amount of weight in a mere 30 days. Instead of trying to lose 20 or even 10 pounds in a month, try 4 pounds (1 pound a week). You['ll be surprised to find that losing a pound (especially at the start) is not as easy as you think. Also, even if you can loose 2 pounds in a week, don't try to lose more than that. Steady and healthy weight loss should be gradual. This helps to make sure your body stays healthy and that you can remain committed to your weight management plan.

    At first when I saw the title of your post, I was ready to disagree LOL. However, after reading what you've said, I do agree with it. Too many people do try to aim too high when it comes to their weight, thinking that they can lose a lot of weight quickly and keep it off (I was in the category for a while a few years back). I definitely agree that unless you happen to be someone who knows how to effectively lose weight, stick to trying to lose 1 pound per week, because it is harder to lose than you think. And by a pound, I mean fat, not a pound of water weight. I

      I wouldn't have agreed with you a couple of years ago, before I knew how hard it was to lose weight lol. Now, I couldn't agree more. It's challenging at first to lose 1 pound a week. Once you have figured it out, it's easier to lose more regularly and a bit more, but at first, aiming low is best. The less challenging you make your goal, the easier it will be to reach it. Remember, you're not in a race against anyone else or trying to prove anything to anyone else. It's about being healthy and good to your body and reaching your own goals. :)

        I think it's important to aim low to start, because meeting a goal is always important for motivation. That said, once you do get the swing of things, aim to challenge yourself, too. I don't mean be ridiculous, but if you think you can lose a little more, why not try it as long as you're not hurting yoruself.

          Good tip. Most of us bite off more than we can chew, especially those of us who are older and who still think that our bodies are 10 years younger with faster metabolisms and the ability to bounce back and recover faster. Focus on reaching small goals. You won't know what you can achieve or what your limits are if you don't start off small.
