Those pesky last 10 pounds...

Monday, March 21, 2011

The most-asked fitness question is: How can I lost the last 10 pounds?

Get enough sleep. If you're starved for shut-eye, your body will try to hold on to weight and you'll be prone to cravings. Aim to get at least seven and a half hours of sleep a night.

Check your diet. After initial success, it's easy to let less healthy foods creep in or portions expand. If you plateau, keep a food diary for a week. Sometimes we need a diet checkup.

Stop being bored. Plateaus aren't just physicial; you can mentally plateau from doing the same workout over and over. Try something 180 degrees away from what you're doing now that really challenges you. Works every time!

Ask yourself: Do I really need to lose weight? If you've done all of the above and are still stuck above your "goal," guess what: If your BMI is healthy (check it at glamour.com/magazine), your body may be happy where it is. A lot of women set overly harsh goals that aren't sustainable. Your "ideal" weight isn't where you'd like to be, it's where you CAN be.

GOAL WEIGHT

Saturday, March 19, 2011

Once you have hit your goal weight, how can you add treats back in without regaining the pounds?

Congrats! The first thing to remember at this point is that you've embarked on a new healthy lifestyle. Reaching your goal weigh doesn't mean you can return to your old way of eating, because the pounds will come back. But you absolutely can - and should - add some things into your diet again. Start with foods you crave most, and eat them in moderation.

If you're all about spagetti and meatballs, try having a cup of it along with a big salad to fill you up - rather than eating a huge plate of pasta, as you may have in the past. Add in your favorite treats once or twice a week, and if after a few weeks you're maintaining your current weight, try phasing in one more treat per week.

If the scale emoticon bumps up, it's no big deal, because now you know exactly what you need less of to keep the weight off.

Why do bagpipers always walk when they play?

To get away from the noise.



HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY, EVERYONE!
