Lose Weight for Your Kids

Last night's NBC evening news reported that by 2010, 1 in 5 children will be OBESE, not just overweight. The news report followed one family that had a girl who was considered obese. But looking at the girl's mom, I have to say that she could stand losing 30 lbs at least. How can you encourage your kids to eat healthy and stay healthy if you don't set an example.

As of today, we have 12 millions kids who are overweight. If you don't feel motivated to lose weight for yourself, do it for your sons and daughters, even nieces or nephews.

Snack Before Bedtime

If you are on a diet, it is never a good idea to starve yourself, especially before bedtime. I figured this out the hard way. For a while, I ate very little for dinner and absolutely stayed away from food before going to bed. But I constantly woke up in the middle of a night and couldn't go back to sleep. I later found out that it was the hunger that woke me up. I coped with this by eating some lean meat and vegetables before bedtime. The extra calories didn't have that much impact on my overall weight loss goal, but it gave me good nights of sleep.

Please don't forget that good sleep is critical in weight loss. Sleep deprivation can change your blood chemistry and makes you gain weight more easily.

Where the Turkey Goes?

The Turkey Walk can make you feel the pain of gaining 20 lbs instantly as well as the relief of losing 20 lbs instantly. Here is one more motivation that may help you get on the treadmill. When you pick up a 15-pound turkey, you will be surprised how BIG that mass of flesh is. Ask yourself this: where can that mass of flesh go onto your body to make you look nicer, prettier and healthier? Bear in mind one fact: the turkey in your hand is mostly muscle weight. Fat is lighter than muscle, therefore, 15 pounds of fat will be much bulkier than the turkey you are holding.

The bottom line is: if you gain as much as 15 lbs, it not only makes your life miserable, but also make you look bad!
