If you thought losing weight was difficult, maintaining that 'lost' weight is even more difficult. I cannot tell you how many of my friends were able to lose weight successfully, only to regain back all the 'lost' pounds after a few weeks.
Our weight fluctuation is our own fault. Don't make that mistake! Stick with your diet plan and exercise program on a regular basis, you'll never gain weight.
It's critical for you to stay on your diet and exercise routine even after you have reached your desired weight. However, many folks don't. Guess what? The weight is back in town.
If you do not want to go to the gym, fine. Then walk to lose weight and maintain the weight you've lost. Here are 3 "weight loss by walking" tips.
1. See your doctor: Your doctor may have suggestions for you regarding walking to lose weight.
He will monitor your schedule based on your health conditions. Therefore, it's best to have a clean check up. Who knows, you may have a problem with your feet. Your doctor can recommend bike riding instead.
2. Track your steps: Walking for weight loss requires you to know exactly how much it takes (i.e. how many steps a day). It's impossible to know if you walk one mile today and a half tomorrow. The best way to find out is to purchase a pedometer.
Pedometers can be found at most sport facilities and they're not very expensive. They take the guessing out of how many steps. So each day you can improve your "walking for losing weight" adventure.
As you start walking, you will feel much healthier and your energy levels will increase.
3. Put the right clothes on when walking. The ideal clothing is loose and comfortable. Do you enjoy walking for weight loss in tight jean and heavy sweater if it's not cold outside? I personally don't. So select loose-fit and light weight.
Proper shoes are highly important as you are walking. If your shoes make your feet hurt or uneasy, do something about it and keep on walking!
