take action to lose weightA good starting point will be to arm yourself a with a good collection of workable and useful tips for losing that weight. Choose those that you are pretty sure will be things that you can use personally that will help you to improve your chances of getting through the diet and exercise program that you have set up for yourself.

That is assuming, of course, that you have set something definite up for yourself and you are not merely going at it in a "Wild West" way.

Create a Definite Plan

One of the greatest reasons for failure to lose anything is the lack of a definite plan to follow in order to lose the number of pounds you intended. You have to have something concrete to follow and have a positive attitude or you will just meander here, there and everywhere and not really stick to any one thing.

Results will be haphazard at best and you will not be able to really keep to any kind of schedule because you won't have one. So the trick, is really to sit down and set out exactly what you intend to do in order to lose weight.

Set a Goal for Yourself

Start by giving yourself an achievable goal, say to lose something like 10 pounds inside of two months, or whatever is believable for you. Don't try and set the goal too high or you will defeat yourself before you even get going!

You should also be mindful of your starting point. That is weigh in at the start and note what the scales are telling you. This is because you will need a point of reference to work from and also it will give you a better idea of how many pounds you can believably lose.

What you then need to do is get yourself all fired up and raring to go. There are many ways to do this, from using motivating images stuck on your fridge to using your imagination and seeing yourself dressed in great looking clothes or a swimsuit and looking and feeling amazing!

Work on Your Strategy

Then work to a structure of the kinds of food that you will allow yourself to eat over the week to achieve the level of body mass reduction through a successful diet you intend, while outlining what exercises you will do, for how long and at what level of difficulty. Aim to improve on your exercise timing and level of resistance over time so that you gain strength and further boost your metabolism.

Do these things and then set out to follow them as closely as you can. Day by day and week by week you will see an improvement if you follow your own direction. This is a great way to lose weight because it is following something that you have created for yourself and not something that some one else has imposed on you.
