Keeping weight off!

Many people can lose weight but then add it back on and get discouraged. My suggestions to fight this health hazard which also makes you look less attractive.

Once a week skip a meal. Some cannot, but I find if I skip lunch occasionally I enjoy dinner more and lose weight. Or if you have a big lunch just some fruit and crackers for dinner.

Small portions. Restaurants are giving such big entrees and salads two people can easily split a salad and entree and dessert if you must!

Skip desserts! Or share with two or more people.

Do not finish off other people's plates!

Exercise! Vacuuming and gardening count. Walking and weight lifting are my favorites. Find something you like and do it every day or every other day. Sex is also good exercise, if done with vigor!

No sodas unless diet. Only one beer or glass of wine.

No potato chips, pork rinds or candy while watching TV.

Drink water and eat soup.

Fresh fruit and veggies are good and filling with fiber.

Non-fat yogurt with fresh fruit is a good snack.

Walk to mail letters, walk up stairs at work, walk to lunch, walk the dog. Walk!

Leave the birthday cake after one bite. Avoid the frosting and treats brought to work. Stay away from the area they are kept.

Drink black coffee, one cup, and avoid snacks with it. Black is harsher, so less need to repeat.

Avoid buffets and all you can eat places.

Order individual things like oatmeal for breakfast instead of the combo with eggs, pancakes, bacon, toast, hash browns, etc.

If you goof, stay positive and eat less the next day. One small mistake will not derail the program.

Set goals of losing five pounds or one belt size. Reward yourself with a non food gift if succeed.

Enlist your partners or friends in the game.

Chart your progress if you like it.

You can improve your health and appearance, and enjoy life more, weighing less! I did!

Exercise helps but so does plastic surgery if the skin is stretched too much.

Men, and I suppose many women are so obsessed with appearances. Men in particular are very visual creatures. I mentally take notes on comments about hot, tight, slim and tan hotties. Men by nature are so attracted to the perfect fit bodies. They crave to lay a beautiful woman down. I have watched enough programs on this subject to know that it is through instinct man seeks out the most attractive partner. So what is the real motive here. Health? Fitness? Or beautiful woman on the beach wearing teeny tiny bikinis. I must say that I am way more active than most, more active than most hotties for sure. I eat healthy, but some of us were just born "weight challenged" I have a friend that does absolutely nothing but sit on her couch all day long watching soap opera's and talk shows yet she is half my size. No muscle tone but still thin. I have muscle, can out hike any city boy but still I live in a chunky body. Some are quite fortunate in that area and some, according to the views of mainstream society are sub-standard. I wonder if the battle of the bulge is about being healthy or being more appealing to the eye. Some sit in their offices all day long, go to the gym after work for an hour or so lifting weights and for some odd reason walk no where on a treadmill instead of getting out to walk with a view. I am very healthy. I hike, ride my bike instead of drive, play hacky sack with my son, kayake, dance and so much more. So we are not talking about thin being the sign of health.
