Wii Fit Plus is a great way to keep exercising when you haven't been able to stay consistent. I couldn't stay consistent with exercising for several years until I found Wii Fit. It is fun and active, and you can change up your routine every day. They even have minature programs for your targetted goals (ex: toned arms, being leaner, belly fat, etc). I find it great . I have been exercising everyday now, and I can notice how much stronger I'm becoming.306
I also recommend wii sports as well (they often come with the Wii itself). Great way to stay active.
When I lost 70lbs it was one of the most challenging struggles of my life. It was daily, at first, while my mind & body fought habits and cravings. I knew this going in but, it helped me to visualize my success in time. I started my new eating & exercise habits with a goal of achievement by September. That didn't seem so daunting! I just thought, my life could be completely different by September! It was, as I went from a size 18 to a size 6! I lost 10lbs a month. That's achievable & healthy.
I can't stress enough that u need to have realistic, healthy goals. Accept slip ups, as they're normal. Just stay consistent. My mind would betray me even though I was losing weight. Be proud of each day, each week u stay consistent. You can do this!
Be consistent! If you feel like you don't want to work out or eat healthy, do it anyways. Even if it's just a 10 minute walk, or one set of push-ups or cutting back by two bites on portion sizes, just do it. If you stay consistent, then soon it will become a habit, and soon it will be a part of your life.
