Losing That Extra Weight
Strategies for Successful Slimming

1. Exercise

The first secret to controlling weight is being more active. With regular exercise we can burn the calories we consume instead of storing them as fat. 

To slim down and stay slim, getting more exercise should be your number one lifelong priority. 

2. Trim your diet in mini-steps

Make any diet changes only one or two at a time--enough to save about 125 calories a day. That could mean switching from mayonnaise to mustard on your sandwich at lunch. The next day, use 1 percent low-fat milk instead of half-and-half in your coffee.

When those changes have become habits, add another small change or two. 

3. Don't Keep Checking Your Weight Everyday

Scales give a very superficial measurement that doesn't tell you anything about your muscle mass or fluid retention. Getting on a scale that says you haven't lost any weight after you've been faithful to your eating plan can be discouraging enough to make you give up. To gauge your progress, check how your clothes fit. This is a much better indicator.
