Easy Ways To Trim Down That Excess Weight

It can be challenging and may require quite a bit of effort to lose weight. If you learn all you can about what works, you’ll be better off. This article will hopefully encourage you to start working hard on your own weight loss plans.



Consuming coffee can help you lose weight. Coffee is a common drink, but many people don’t realize it is helpful for workouts. It can give you some extra energy and boost the metabolism.


If you can find enjoyment in your workouts, your weight loss is more likely to succeed. Studies show that many people struggle with staying motivated when doing physical exercises. See if workout video games make a difference for you, or simply enjoy some active family recreation instead.


Try to stay surrounded by other active people. When the people around you are active, it will inspire you to get out and enjoy an active lifestyle yourself. Spending time with a couch potato will likely influence you to curl up on the couch with them.


Try to reward yourself for staying true to your diet for extra motivation. Take a night to yourself or go out with friends to get your mind off your diet regimen. Additionally, you can treat yourself to a materialistic award, to give yourself a pat on the back for good work.


Eat more yogurt to lose weight. Low-fat and plain yogurts are the best choice. You can create delicious and nutritious dishes with yogurt. For example, using plain yogurt as a dressing for cucumber salad. Fresh fruit is great on yogurt and is low on processed sugar. You can get a great mix of calcium, protein and other nutrients in a low-fat, low-calorie snack.


If you can, avoid being alone when you eat. We tend to eat more when we are alone, in part because we are not occupied with the give-and-take process of interacting socially.


Use whole grain pasta instead of regular pasta. Many people try to cut pasta from their diet. Alternatively, switch to whole wheat pasta. Whole wheat pasta is better for you in several ways. They make for an excellent meal.


One great tip to help you lose weight is to stay away from foods that are fried. Other cooking methods create healthier, tasty food. For instance, you could broil, steam, bake, or poach. Using these cooking methods can help you slim down more quickly.


While it is important to take weight loss seriously, if you push yourself too hard you might hurt your body and negate your positive results. Gradually start a quality program and you will look better than ever.

My accident happened on February 5th, 2012 after my bartending shift at the Blue Martini in Orlando, FL late one night. I was driving on my way to a friend’s house in Tampa, FL who I was temporarily staying with at the time. I was told that my car veered off the interstate and flipped five times, my body was found 50 feet from it. I’ve tried very hard to discover how my body made it that distance from the car, and who found me, but I still don’t know. The accident report didn’t say much. I received a phone call from a sergeant eventually who told me I was airlifted to Orlando Regional Medical Center unconscious when my trach and feeding tube were implanted, but they didn’t expect me to make it. I was in a coma for five to six weeks after my car accident. I woke up with a traumatic brain injury, liver laceration, lung confusion, subluxation to my neck, amnesia, epilepsy, a fractured lumbar spine, and a fractured pelvis with pins implanted. The pins were removed a few months later. Talk about a painful surgery. Healing is an ongoing process, but for me there are some specific things that have helped along the way: Keeping track of everything to care for my daily hygiene. Listing these things with a dry erase marker on my bathroom mirror used to help. Recognizing what I’m not supposed to say. Deciding what TO SAY, what NOT TO SAY, and WHEN to say WHAT. Isn’t easy to do and I still haven’t mastered it. There are things I’m supposed to talk only to certain people about, and some things I should keep to myself. When I’m being upfront and honest with someone, I can’t assume whatever I’m saying or doing is right, just because in my head, being truthful is “the way I’m supposed to be”. Believe it or not, oddly enough, that isn’t always the case! Learning how to RECOGNIZE which is which is vital. Don’t believe what everyone says. Do your own research. Discover your own truth. Know who I can talk to with the confidence that I'll be given honest feedback from them. What prescriptions must I take daily, how many times a day, how many pills in each dosage, and how to stay on a schedule with my doctors so I don’t run out of my medications. How to keep myself on track. I try and find simple ways to include all things I need to do, my appointments, yoga classes, homework, social life, fitness, etc. Figuring out the most effective ways that can progressively help manage my pain. A therapist is a must have. Someone I can tell everything to and have it kept confidential. I must constantly fight hard to make each of my days better. That’s the way it is. Accept it, don’t give up, and keep going. YouTube and the Word synonym tool are necessities I can’t live without. Keep the alcohol to a MINIMUM. If any, but not drinking AT ALL is the best-case scenario-by a long shot. I’ve been working on how to stop talking out loud as much while being overwhelmingly passionate about things. For me, moving forward is about resilience. Why? I’ve learned that being resilient to words people say about, to, and against me have subconsciously built up an ulterior strength within me. This strength is like a shield that gives me the power to just keep going. To be resilient means to keep moving forward despite having the odds stacked against me. Just to keep it moving and continue giving my all every single day, gripping onto the hope it’ll all make perfect sense at some point. How the next day and the day after that aren’t going to feel the same. Resilience has aided me in finding somewhere I can fit in, and enjoy what I’m doing. Also, being resilient in my situation has created the ability for me to have a positive impact on others. I'm not depressed anymore. I’m quite happy with myself at this point. Now don’t get me wrong, I still have a long list of goals I’m going to achieve, or die trying. Haha, that’s the fight in me talking out loud. Resilience has abetted me in accepting the new Christy you could say. Vinyasa yoga has helped improve my pain and flexibility a lot. I’m sure my sanity too. I haven’t tried much meditation yet, but I plan to, although I tried a breathing exercise on Kevin’s Instagram last night and loved it! I want to get good at it. I don’t know why, but when I start feeling fatigued or when I just want to write my mind on paper, sitting by the ocean really helps calm me. I think I’m a bit hyperactive, but I’ve noticed when I wake up and go straight to the gym, get on the treadmill at 3.4 speed and just go for an hour. It really helps motivate me about my day and somehow makes it easier for me to fall asleep when I hop into bed. I also take part in Vinyasa yoga, instructed by Di, only 2 times a week hosted at Suncoast Fitness in St. Petersburg, FL. It has helped build my strength, improve my flexibility, and ease my thoughts to a noticeable degree. As I move forward in this journey and look to the future, I’m planning on one day starting a YouTube channel and raising money to develop an app for TBI survivors. Like a life coach in a sense, and hopefully I’ll have the opportunity to teach survivors how to use it, or make it very simple and self-explanatory. It would also be nice to make hospitals aware of the app one day so they'll be able to reference it and help others who have been affected by brain injury.
