Want To Lose Weight For Good?!!

Small Moves Put You Back In Charge of Eating and Exercising

If you want to drop pounds, stop focusing on the numbers. To lose weight and keep it off, set your sights on improving your whole life: Staying active and eating better are important, as is taking care of your emotional health so you don't turn to food for comfort. That may sound like a tall order, but here's how you can get started, one baby step at a time.

Add 2 minutes to your workout. Whether your walks are 10 or 30 minutes, tack on 2 minutes to each one this week, and then 2 more the following and every week after. It's a painless, realistic way to build up to a health-boosting 30 to 60 minutes a day.

Cut three unhealthy foods from your diet. Then fill the empty slots with good-for-you alternatives. My suggestions: Swap sugar-loaded soda for water or tea; replace artery-clogging fried foods with oven-baked choices; and eliminate high-fat, whole milk. I use fat-free in smoothies and 1% in my cereal.

Discover what drives you to overeat and change it. Write down what you believe makes up a good life--be it family, romance, career--and grade it with a plus or minus. Each minus suggests an area where you may use food to compensate for what's missing. Try to do one small thing every day to help strengthen a relationship, enhance your career, or improve what's most important to you. Once you know why you overeat, it's easier to control.

Swap one drink today: choose water over cola, and save 250 calories per bottle.
