You know that eating right and regular exercise go hand in hand. You probably also know from experience that stress can hinder your weight loss efforts. So, since you already know all of this, why haven't your previous attempts at losing weight been successful?
Maybe you haven't reached the point of being sick and tired of being sick and tired. Oftentimes it's when people reach this point, that lasting change occurs.
Maybe you have not stuck to a plan long enough to see the results. You must remember that you didn't put the weight on over-night, so it is not going to come off over-night.
Maybe you are setting unrealistic goals for yourself. To say that you want to lose 30 lbs in 30 days is putting way too much pressure on yourself, and it's not healthy. As you continue to set these unrealistic goals, and fail to meet them, you eventually become so discouraged that you just give up
Maybe you are exercising, and not watching what you eat, or maybe you are watching what you eat, but not exercising. A healthy diet, and regular exercise are not only essential for weight loss, but also for your overall health. If you wish to see results, you must do both consistently.
Maybe you started, then stopped, because you came to the conclusion that you just don't have the time or money. As women, we wear many hats...Wife, Mother, Daughter, Sister, Employee, Student, etc. With each of these roles we have certain responsibilities, however, when we don't tend to ourselves, these roles become overwhelming. Women must understand that when we take the time to nurture and invest in our MIND and our BODY, we are put into a position to better serve others.
Finally, maybe you feel that you have so much weight to lose, that just the thought of entering into a weight loss plan seems daunting.
Right now, if you identify with any of the reasons above, you should be asking yourself, "What can I do, that I have not already done, to finally achieve the weight loss that I desire?"

I definitely need to burn some fat. I found this article interesting. I have always thought that a single long workout burned more fat...
Breaking up workouts may burn fat faster
Breaking up an exercise session, by adding a rest period in between, may boost a workout's fat-burning efficiency, a team of Japanese and Danish researchers reports.When men exercised for two 30-minute stretches, taking a 20-minute rest break in between, they burned more fat than when they exercised for a single 60-minute session, and then rested afterward, Dr. Kazushige Goto of the University of Tokyo and colleagues found. Current recommendations on exercise for preventing or treating obesity emphasize longer exercise sessions, Goto and his team note in the Journal of Applied Physiology. But there is evidence that following one exercise session with another workout may increase fat metabolism, they add. To investigate, the researchers had seven healthy men complete one long workout and then two shorter workouts on exercise bicycles, measuring several different indicators of fat metabolism. All exercised at 60 percent of their maximum level of exertion. When the men performed the two shorter exercise sessions, their blood levels of free fatty acids and other substances rose during the rest period, indicating greater fat metabolism. Levels of these substances also were higher during an hour-long rest period after the two-part exercise session. Greater fat metabolism was recorded during each of the rest periods in the two-part session than during the rest period following the single, longer workout. The men also showed lower levels of insulin and blood glucose during the second phase of the two-part exercise session. While the proportion of total calories burned did not differ between the two workouts, fat represented nearly 77 percent of the calories burned in the recovery period after the two-part exercise session, compared with about 56 percent of calories burned in the recovery period after the single long exercise session. Although a single bout of prolonged exercise is often performed in response to a physician's advice to exercise more, exercising for the same amount of time but with rest periods in between may be more effective, especially for sedentary or overweight individuals, the researchers conclude.

Made of tofu and yam flour, these noodles are high in fiber, VERY low in calories, and have ZERO points (if you're counting) for the entire two-serving package! It's basically "pasta" with hardly any carbs or calories. Use these in place of where you would normally use regular high carb pasta. Available at select grocery stores, select Whole Foods locations, Japanese markets, or order them online.

When keeping track of your caloric intake from fats, carbohydrates, and protein, it is important that you read the nutrition facts label. You wouldn't want to eat a full size bag of Fritos BBQ flavored corn chips, because if you did, you would be consuming 10 times the calories of a single serving(150 calories), and if you are by chance on a 1500 calorie a day diet, this full size bag of chips would be it for the day. Now you wouldn't want that, would you? I didn't think so. Don't get me wrong, you can still have your Frito Lays, but you may want to stick to 1 serving, which is 29 chips. Once you understand how to read nutrition facts labeling, you will be able to do a better job planning your meals. For instance, almost every morning I have 2 boiled eggs minus the yolks, 3/4 cups of Total cereal with a 1/2 cup of fat free skim milk, and a medium size orange. That's an average of 235 calories. Now lets say I kept the yolks, doubled my cereal and milk serving, and had a large orange. My caloric intake would then be 520 calories. See what I mean? Now that you understand the importance of reading those handy dandy nutrition facts, the next time you sit down to plan your next meal, you will make better choices.

how many calories you need to lose weight and you are keeping up with what you eat in your food journal, making adjustments in your diet here and there. Now what? Well, it seems like you've figured out the "eat less" part, now lets get MOVING.
Here are my favorite TOP 2 inexpensive ways for you to get started:
1)Walking (in the park, at the mall, from the farthest parking space to the grocery store, you get the picture)
2)Exercise videos(Check out Beachbody's Fitness Programs!)
Now I know that this is just too simple, but trust me, it works. I have been following my own advice since late March of this year, and I have lost 19 lbs so far(Yay Me!)
Anyway, that's it for now.
How do I get started?
All you need is a notebook, and something to write with.
sign up for an online food journal at MyFoodDiary.com.
I suggest using this online journal because of its motivational charts & reports. Each report or chart is customized to your needs. You can view your progress over time, receive personal tips, and even see what you would weigh in 3 months if every day were like today.
That's all for now :-)
