Hello Lovely Ladies!
|My Fitness Journey: 7 Tips on How to Lose Weight Effectively (By The Graceful Mist | www.TheGracefulMist.com)|
It`s been a long time, isn`t it? Summer has ended, and rainy season has entered. Yet, it doesn`t mean you have to stop working for your body just because you`re no longer aiming for that summer-ready figure. Staying fit and healthy isn`t a phase but a lifestyle.
Even I have difficulties in staying in shape, especially during this pandemic. Since a lot of us are working from home, we`re walking and moving less, especially if you`re doing a desk job like me. It has been incredibly frustrating to try and lose weight. Even if I lost a couple of pounds, it`ll just come back if I don`t constantly workout. It`s why I want to share some of the tips below that I think will help your progress in becoming fit and healthy as well:
1. Set a Realistic Fitness Plan
When you want to lose weight, workout and maintain a certain figure, you have to set a realistic fitness plan that works well with your schedule, your lifestyle, and your goals for your body.
If you make a fitness plan that seems perfect but doesn`t fit well with the type of lifestyle you have, you`ll only end up being frustrated because you weren`t able to do what`s written in your fitness plan.
How to set a realistic fitness plan? Here are some questions that can help you evaluate what kind of health plan you need:
• What food and drinks can you eat and drink that`s low in calories, healthy, and easy-to-make?
• Do you want to put certain limitations for food, drinks, sleeping patterns, exercises, and habits?
• What kind of workout schedule works best for you?
If you`re still having difficulties creating a realistic fitness plan for your lifestyle, consulting both a nutritionist and personal trainer will greatly help you come up with one that you can do for a long time.
2. Do Exercises that You Enjoy the Most
There`s nothing more dragging than doing exercises that you hate. There are a lot of fun exercises you can do without it being boring. You can check out Youtube for all the enjoyable workouts you can do at home.
I personally love walking and running in a treadmill, doing Pilates, and HIIT. It`s why I do these exercises a lot because working out doing these exercises often is better than not exercising at all.
3. Try Wearing Waist Trainers

A waist trainer for women excellent for your body to sweat more during exercise, waist support, and waist cinching. My favorite waist trainers are from Feelingirls because of the quality,
Waist training is a good short-term and long-term way to achieve a smaller waist. I really love waist trainers because you can wear one over your workout top or regular clothes.
4. Always Look for The Positivity Even if You Feel Down
If you`re feeling down because of how you look, what your weight is, and how you`re feeling because you`re not getting things done the way you want to, always look for the light and positivity in every situation. Use that small positive thing that you see, and focus on that only to build yourself up and start working towards achieving your goals again.
5. Avoid Self-Condemnation by Wearing Body Shapers

When we`re still in the process of losing weight and achieving the body we`ve been dreaming of, wearing our favorite clothes can be disheartening, especially when they don`t fit, or some of our belly rolls are showing.
If wearing body shapers and the best plus size shapewear can help us avoid being stumbled in our fitness journey, then so be it. Wearing shapewear can even make us feel good and confident about ourselves, and encouraging us to do better in living a healthy lifestyle.
6. You are Your Best Motivator
You are your only motivator. Sure, watching Youtube videos of people`s weight loss journey, exercise routine, and what they eat can motivate you to start working out. However, those motivation isn`t always constant so you always have to hype yourself up to get up and do the work.
7. Always Remind Yourself That Dieting is Neither a Phase nor a Race.
You don`t diet just so you can fit into your dress for a certain event. If you diet like this, all your hard work will go to waste because you`ll get your old weight and body back.
However, if you work out and watch what you eat as if it`s a lifestyle, then you`ll enjoy a rather relaxed and confident life. Always remind yourself that dieting is not competing with models or famous people. It`s a lifestyle and journey to enjoy so you can get the best body you want for yourself.
