Are you sick of having rolls and rolls of flab when you look at yourself in the mirror? Do you wish you could wear slinky little dresses like the stars? Anybody can shape up, it’s just a case of believing you can before you do anything else! This post will tell you exactly how you can go from flab to fab in no time!
Start With Your Mindset
Change your mindset and you’re half way there! You need to believe you can do this. In fact, believe you’ve already done it. Don’t think of it as punishment or a chore, think of it as fun. Make it enjoyable so you like this lifestyle, and you’re more likely to stick to it.
Stop Buying Bad Food
Buying bad food and letting it sit in the cupboard is a recipe for disaster. Do your shopping online so you don’t get tempted by deals or bad foods, and only buy good food to fill your cupboards. Have a treat once in a while, but don’t keep them in the house. You can quickly sabotage your efforts this way.
Eat More Natural Foods
Natural foods will us up for longer than bad foods do. They also help us to feel more alert and energised. Include plenty of vegetables, fruit, nuts, and lean meats on your shopping list. You can also find ways to make your favourite foods from healthy food, so you don’t feel like you’re missing out.
Don’t Go Hungry
Starving yourself is not the way to go. You can ruin your progress in so many ways by doing this! Instead, eat at regular intervals and keep your portion sizes under control. If you let yourself starve you’ll either end up binging or you’ll mess up your metabolism and make your body hold on to fat.
Get Some Exercise
People say they don’t like it, but they just haven’t found a form of exercise that they like. Make an effort 3 times a week and you’ll notice massive benefits. You can then increase it if you like, but you don’t have to. Even walking is a good form of exercise. Or, you could try something fun like playing football!
See a Professional
A professional can help you in many ways. They may talk to you about your diet, and advise you on how you can change your life. If you feel you are too far gone, you can also discuss weight loss surgery procedures. Depending on the type of professional you see, your life can change in many ways.
Address Underlying Issues
Do you feel insecure in yourself? Do you hate being alone? Lots of things can trigger eating binges and leave you feeling gross afterwards. Address these issues and you’ll feel less inclined to binge.
Enjoy the Journey!
Finally, enjoy the journey and the things you’re doing to get to where you want to be. Don’t have the mindset of, ‘I’ll be happy when I weigh X amount’ or ‘I’ll be happy when I look like X’ – just be happy now and enjoy the ride. This is your life, after all!
