Many people struggle at controlling their weight. Diet after diet is attempted, many unsuccessfully. Here are some easy tips to get you started on a weight loss plan that will actually work.

Portion control:

This is probably not the first time you have heard this. If it is, you must have been living under a rock. With super sized portions of everything and extra large lattes it's no wonder our waist sizes have grown as well. It is important to read labels, measure out your servings and resist the urge to eat when you are bored or stressed.

Exercise:

Again, no mystery here. Those who incorporate fitness into their weight control plan are much more successful in reaching their goals and maintaining their weight loss.

Watch the scale:

Although it is important to not become obsessed with the number on the scale it is important to keep an eye on it. Also, paying attention to the way your clothing fits is a good way to judge weight loss or gain. Remember that losing more than two pounds per week can be unhealthy. Checking your weight weekly can help you monitor your progress.

Don't cheat:

But if you do, don't give up completely. Get back on track right away. This is why it is so important to choose a plan or lifestyle change that is realistic. Small, moderate changes are much easier to stick with and will be less stressful to your body and mind.

If you are struggling to lose weight, talk to a professional who can help you get started today.

Say it! Mean it! Do it!
