10 Simple Steps to Weight Loss
“diet and exercise are the keys to lowering weight”
Many people find it hard to deal with weight control, opting instead for miracle diets and quick cures. But it remains no secret that the best way to control weight is to consume fewer calories and exercise more over. You can't just change your lifestyle habits for a week or two. To successfully manage your weight, you must commit to a lifetime of permanent changes in eating behavior.
The following 10 tips to weight reduction don't involve buying expensive foods or hiring a personal trainer. Instead, they involve common sense.
Pan-fry or saute foods with a non-stick spray or low-calorie butter substitutes. Bake or broil instead of frying.
Eat high-fiber foods, such as a bran muffin instead of a donut.
Order "lite" fare when eating out. Purchase low-calorie foods.
Try a meal plan substituting low-calorie, sugar-free foods and beverages for many of the foods currently used.
Never skip a meal. Eat three-to-six times a day in smaller portions.
Fool your mind and stomach by using smaller plates to satisfy your psychological need for larger portions. (Hint: Many restaurants already do this.)
Eat and chew slowly. It takes 20 minutes for the stomach to tell the brain that it's full.
Weigh yourself on a regular schedule, but don't become a slave to it.
Reward yourself with non-culinary pleasures. Buy a new outfit. A new pair of shoes. Go see a movie (ignore the snack bar). Workout with a friend. Join a gym. Get a haircut.
Have an excellent week.

Desire is The Fire of Your Life
If you want something badly enough, you're sure to get it. Your desires will in time externalize themselves into concrete fact.
Obstacles don't matter very much. Pain or other circumstances can be there. But if you want to do something bad enough, you'll find a way to get it done.
Your reality forms around your commitment to succeed. If you're willing to pay the price, your circumstances will change. You only have to love a thing greatly to get it.
Making Changes To Your Diet Starts With Changing Your Environment
Making changes to your diet and exercise plan may seem so difficult as to be discouraging. Especially at first, when new behaviors are unfamiliar and easier said than done.
Providing yourself with a supportive environment will help keep you focused on your goals, and you will soon be on your way to a slimmer, healthier you!
Learning to support your behavior changes in different ways will help you make them permanent. This can involve both changing your environment, and the circumstances supporting your behavior changes.
If you make a commitment to stop drinking soda pop, be sure there's none left in your refrigerator. If you make a commitment to walk at lunchtime, make sure to leave time for it and to have a pair of athletic shoes on hand.
Make the right changes to your environment and you will find it easier to achieve the behavioral changes you desire, and to sustain your new behaviors and reach your goals.
Take a look at your environment, and ask yourself what you can change to better support your goals. Then take action!
Keeping yourself hydrated during your work out will make it even more effective. Don't forget to drink plenty of water! What I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon to 32 ounces of water with a sprinkle of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder . Aside from being less than 2 carbs, you will get the health benefits that the stevia provides along with the vitamin C and electrolytes that lemon have. You can substitute limes for lemons if you get bored. Click here to order stevia powder . Now, starting working out.

Going Back By Going Within
Events from childhood, our first experiences, have the power to shape our lives. Some do so immediately, offering us challenges to overcome and encouragement to make use of our talents and interests. In the process character is built, and we make the first steps upon our personal paths. Other events seem to lay dormant until adulthood, when our closest relationships help to bring out the deepest aspects of ourselves. This is when unexamined lessons can be put to use and untended childhood wounds make themselves known in a call for healing.
We may discover issues of trust coming up, or perhaps we find ourselves mirroring actions from our past instinctively. No matter the case, we have the power within us to heal ourselves at the deepest level. With the wisdom of an adult, we can be the loving parent or guardian we needed as a child. Knowing that we are each whole spiritual beings having a human experience, we can nurture ourselves from that wholeness, and then reach out to others as well. We can recreate scenarios in our mind's eye, trying different outcomes and following them to their logical conclusions. In doing so, we may be able to imagine possible reasons a situation occurred as it did, and even accept that it could not have happened any other way. With the wisdom born from age and experience, we might be able to see events from a different perspective, bringing new understanding and freeing ourselves from any hold the past may have on us.
Life offers opportunities to clear these weeds in the gardens of our souls. However, when we want to focus on easier and more pleasant tasks, we are likely to pass up the chances, leaving the wounds to continue to drain our energy and resources for living life fully today. We might find we need support to face the events of the past, so turning to a trained professional who can offer tools for healing can be a valid choice. As long as we remember that the child we were lives on within us, we are always free to go back and right old wrongs, correct mistaken perceptions, heal wounds, forgive, and begin anew.
