How to Lose 10 Pounds If Your Are Over 40 (part 2 of 2)
Spread Your Meals
During normal circumstances, there are only three basic mealtimes: breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you want to effectively shed off extra pounds, add three to four meals in between. However, make these meals smaller than normal. Divide your breakfast to two as well as your lunch and dinner. Eating small can help you avoid hunger pangs in between meals, which is the most common reason of weight loss failure.
Take Time to Walk
If you allow yourself to do some simple cardio routines everyday, you would surely slowly lose weight. The easiest cardio exercise, and not to mention cheapest, is to walk. Many people find it beneficial to take some time everyday for a leisurely walk. A thirty to forty-five-minute walk can help you burn as much as 600 calories everyday.
Buy a Pair of Pants Three Sizes Smaller
Having a goal is helpful in losing weight. Why not materialize this goal in the form of a pair of pants? Buying a pair of expensive pants two to three sizes smaller than the ones you wear can provide you inspiration. This can motivate you to reach your goal. Make sure that you buy the most expensive you can find to make you regret not being able to wear them in case you fail your weight loss program.
There are more ways to lose 10 pounds if you are over 40. All you need to have is patience and determination. Once you achieve your goal, be sure to remove all the clothes that remind you of your previous weight from your closet. Purchase a new set of wardrobe to encourage you to maintain your new figure.
