Five Wonderful Ways To Watch For Weight Gain

Today, you will be reading about wonderful ways to watch for weight gain, and how you can keep watching how much healthy food you are actually eating, even though you believe it doesn’t matter because it’s all healthy food and really good for you.  If you have been dieting, and you have reached your weight loss goal, you still have to be careful of how much you eat so that the weight you lost doesn’t all pile back on again.

Always eat a proper breakfast

No doubt your mother always told you to make sure that you eat your breakfast, because it includes foods that are high in protein, fibre and vitamins.  Breakfasts include healthy things like whole grain cereals, fruits, berries and yoghurt.  Before you sit down to eat your breakfast, and also any other meal, put all the leftovers from the meal that are sitting in the saucepans and baking dishes into storage containers, and put them in the fridge.  This will help to stop you leaving the leftovers on the stove for “seconds”, which could tempt you into eating extra helpings of food that you don’t actually need.  If you eat a healthy breakfast, you are going to have more energy and you will therefore be more physically active, and much more likely to exercise during the day.  The energy you spend doing physical activity will burn a noticeable number of calories, and this will help you to avoid regaining weight.  However, if you lead a very busy lifestyle, and just don’t have the time to cook a full, home-cooked breakfast, then you can use meal replacements with top quality whey protein and other nutrients.  You can simply enjoy a shake which is packed with protein.  This is a modern and healthy way to help to maintain your general health and your wish to avoid further weight gain.

Set Goals

Set goals to help you to keep focused on your aspirations regarding your weight.  This will help you to concentrate on your weight, and you will be able to notice how your weight has changed.

I now give three examples of possible goals that you may want to use, if you think you might find them helpful.

Goal 1: Weigh yourself every day.  Doing this on a regular basis will keep you on track with your goal, and as a result you will be more consciously aware of how much you weigh.

Goal 2: Keep a daily planner, where you can keep track of all the food you actually eat, and make sure you add how many calories you have actually consumed for everything you eat.

Goal 3: Exercise for at least 30 minutes every day of the week.

Keep Exercising

When you have finally reached your goal weight, don’t make the easy mistake of stopping your diet and then crawling back to your old and bad eating habits.  You will need to continue eating as you did before you lost your weight, and also to keep exercising.  Keeping up regular exercise will help you to burn even more calories and to increase your metabolism, and both of these are needed for you to achieve your energy balance.  If you exercise for at least 30 minutes every single day of the week, including weekends, this will help you to maintain your weight loss by balancing your intake of calories against the amount of calories you burn while you are exercising.  There are many different pleasurable ways to exercise.  You can just walk round the block.  If you live near the sea, you could walk along the beach, or along the promenade.  You can keep up your regular visits to the gym.  You can keep up your weekly or twice weekly exercise class.  You could join a pilates class, or a yoga class.  You could join a walking or rambling group.  You could even take up a sport you used to do, like football, or a completely new one like running or golf.  If you became good at running, you might even consider training to enter a marathon.  Apart from being able to keep the weight off, you will soon be feeling much fitter and much healthier generally.

Join a support group

There are many benefits to joining a slimming support group, either locally or online, to help you lose weight or maintain your weight loss goal.  Every month in places like community centres and church halls, people like yourself are signing up to join a slimming club like Weight Watchers, Slimming World and Rosemary Conley.  The secret of their success is that they offer personal advice, support and encouragement in person at their monthly meetings, as well as on the telephone, and they advertise extensively on the internet, and in magazines and newspapers.  Trying to struggle on alone to meet your weight loss goal is not always easy, and there are times when you probably feel like just giving up.  For instance, one afternoon when you are all alone and you have just made a cup of tea.   You might find yourself munching your way through a whole packet of chocolate biscuits, and you could feel that you might like to go to such a meeting to meet like-minded people with similar problems.  However, take note that these meetings also include a public weigh-in.  There are people who join these clubs simply for the social side of things and to have people to chat with, and perhaps they are fat and jolly and outgoing types who simply don’t mind a jot about being weighed in public and maybe being told off if they haven’t lost any weight.  But if you are one of those sensitive people and you can get easily upset, especially about your weight, and you just don’t like the idea of having to line up in a queue of other people to be weighed, only to be made to feel upset, ashamed and humiliated in public because you haven’t managed to lose any weight, then a public slimming club may just not be the right place for you.  In this case, why not come and see me for a private hypnosis session?  I can really help you with your weight problems using hypnosis.

Personal makeover and photoshoot

When you have managed to reach your weight goal, go and have a personal makeover and a photoshoot.  Hire a local professional photographer, and have several photographs taken of you looking really good, and keep them all in a luxury photo album.

When you are feeling miserable and sorry for yourself at times, for example if you have gone on a binge and some weight has crept back on, you will be able to get the album out and keep looking at your pictures.  This will motivate you to keep at it, because the photographs will inspire you and uplift you, and will help you to keep going.  They will reinforce your positive belief that you can do it, and that you can look wonderful.

If you’re looking to experience the joys of maintaining your weight loss, then hypnosis will help you to fulfil this goal.  Hypnosis will fill you with a newly found energy and confidence, and it will also give you a helping hand in remaining positive about your desires to maintain your weight loss.  It will encourage you to continue eating more healthily, which will include cutting down on sugary things like cakes and biscuits, and alcohol.  Hypnosis is also good for other things, such as if you want freedom from cigarette cravings, and it can help you to relax better and sleep more soundly.
