Health and Weight Loss Tips 5

Welcome back to another health and weight loss post, my fifth of the year! This week has been a jumble of things culminating in a weekend of illness, but I'm not pressuring myself.

I did my walk on Monday and Tuesday but skipped the rest of the week due to being rather busy. The Hubby and I took the boys for a walk to Wollaton Park on Sunday so they could have a run around. We got a walk and the boys enjoyed the freedom. They also liked the new playground that has popped up.

Saturday I was feeling terrible and spent the day on the sofa. My stomach was not happy and I barely ate. That's the reason for the weight loss this week and although it's nice to see the weight coming off I know it's the not eating that did it.

I may not be losing weight fast but I've changed my routine and it's made enough difference to bring my weight down slowly. This week's tip:

Don't pressure yourself

We all set deadlines: "I'd like to lose lbs by the time I go on holiday."

Setting a target is great but make sure it's achievable. It is not healthy to lose 2 stones in 3 weeks. Have targets but don't pressure yourself into not eating because you're not on track. It may make a difference to begin with but once you start eating again that weight will pile back on. Alter your lifestyle, make small changes, that's the healthy way to lose weight.

Small changes in your diet over a long period will make a huge difference to your weight. It just takes a little longer.

I am pleased with my progress but won't be surprised if my weight goes up, and I'm okay with that. Remember, no pressure.

  1. You're so right. Achievable targets make all the difference. Setting yourself up for failure leads to disappointment and is so demoralising. Making little lifestyle changes as and when you can is more successful. Confidence grows and you can keep it up in the long term.

    1. That's great thank you Juliet, it's nice to know I'm not on the wrong track. Confidence really does grow, and the exercise becomes easier. Thanks for commenting. xx
