Loosing Weight, Increasing Self-Esteem


Visitors: 118

Life sure changes as you age. For example, as you reach the age of thirty and beyond, your body strives to put on weight by nature. As you age, your metabolism also changes, and as it slows down, it becomes much easier to gain weight, burning calories much more slowly than earlier in your life.

With aging also comes muscle fat increasing, weighing down your joints as well as muscles and bones. Plus you begin to feel less active, with less energy due to your slower metabolism.

Since your muscles are vital in burning calories, when your metabolism begins to slow, sapping your energy, your muscles diminish in functionality as well, unless you take charge and exercise, under guidance of your healthcare provider.

Don’t just pig out, either. Keep track and monitor your eating and weight gain. Extra weight can leads to other conditions like diabetes and heart problems.

So don’t just let old age set in. Instead, take charge and change your lifestyle. Set goals to lead longer, happier and healthier lifestyles. Make daily exercise part of your agenda and that of your loved ones. Cook and eat healthier.

Tips for Loosing Weight:

Choose low-fat diets that feature plenty of good, fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy beverages and grains. Avoid eating out as much as possible and include plenty of fiber in your menus. Look for healthy cookbooks at your local public library and print out favorite recipes, check at your local bookstore and shop online at poplar sites like Amazon.com and eBay.com.

Then work with your local YMCA or gym, upon the approval of your healthcare provider, and start to work out a plan to loose weight with regular, daily exercise added into your goals. You can choose to incorporate a variety of exercises: walking, cycling, running, swimming, jogging and more. Team up with a buddy and challenge each other to continue daily and enjoy yourselves – at the same time.

No need to spend big bucks at a fancy health club, either. You can usually set up your own home gym for under $100, if you check around for sale (hit eBay!)

Thus loosing weight can sure good health, resulting in increased self-esteem and an all around good attitude. Feel good about yourself and enjoy a fuller life
