Tip For The Day - The 2% Solution to Weight Loss
Promises, promises, promises!
Setting a desired weight loss and a reasonable date by which to achieve it is only a second step.
The first step is to schedule a thorough physical and discussion of your desired weight and target date with a competent, trained, medical professional.
Realize that no two people are alike. Realize that you don't see "the average person" when you look in the mirror. You are seeing "the before person" and looking forward to seeing "the after person."
Steady, effective weight loss is not a matter of pounds. It is a matter of percentages.
Anything more than a 2% weight loss per month is, in my opinion, likely to result in some harm to your body.
Things to keep on hand:
~~~Healthy snacks and the next small, nutritious meal
~~~Ice water in places you frequent during the day and evening
~~~Your list of what you are dieting for
~~~A pair of walking shoes.
