WEIGHT LOSING THOUGHTS ON SETTING FITNESS GOALS FOR THE FUTURE

Author:

I took my weight for granted because I was never in that bad shape as some of those poor guys are out there. But bad enough it was. These poor guys are truly way over the limit, so much so that they enter the unfortunate realm of being declared physically disabled because they can barely move to get about like normal guys do. They’ve also been classified as morbidly obese. Sometimes it’s so bad that they have to go in for painful surgical procedures to cut out the weight. Sometimes these surgical procedures work, and sometimes they do.

That’s the nature of surgical procedures. There are always going to be risks. But a good doctor worth his salt, also leading by example, will always be advocating the natural remedies as far as possible. Speaking of natural remedies, if you’ve been able to source these products, don’t forget to ask for his views on muscle milk. And if he can’t help you, you can always check in with a health-oriented nutritionist whose focus is always helping you to find the right balance of essential proteins, minerals and vitamins, and a whole host of other nutrients in your diet.

The guys that need to prioritize losing weight will have to address their meal plans straight away. And while they’re at it, exercise scheduling needs to commence post haste. The two go effectively together. Weight loss remedies only really work that well if you’ve settled your body and mind into a new life program that includes both the healthy eating plan and the well-balanced exercise schedule. So, it stands to good reason that losing the excess weight is always going to be an important part of setting fitness goals for the future.

And if you’re in the bad, overweight shape that I was once, then much of the goal-setting tasks can be accomplished by you along. First you truly need to watch your weight. Step onto the scale and see how much you way. While you’re doing that find out how much you should be weighing in terms of your body height, age and bone structure. Now, for that last factor, you’ll have to check in with your GP to help you out. He’ll also be able to measure just how much excess fatty tissue you’re carrying around your waist, otherwise known as the proverbial love handles.

H’m, I’ve often wondered why they call it that. Anyway, if you’re in no position to get to anyone who specializes in healthy weights, you can always do as much reading and research on the internet as you can. You’ll get the picture soon enough. When doing your research, you’re not just going to be looking at suggested eating plans that focus on protein consumption to deal with your weight losing issues, and suitable weight training schedules to build up and strengthen your muscles, you’re going to need to look at effective fitness objectives to help you to realistically reach your goals.

Let me leave you then with a few important thoughts on how to be successful in your fitness objective setting when having to lose weight. I hope it helps to get you focused on the real reasons why you’re exercising. You can take another approach to this. Yes, always bear in mind that you need to act in your own best interests, but what if others are relying on you. What if you’re a family man? It’s no good if you’re in a poor state of health, not much use to your family, or worse. This is also an ideal time to lead by example, and draw them into your fitness plans for the future.

Does family still come first?

Well, if you’ve got four kids on your hands, I suppose it does. And what a great opportunity to spend more time with the kids. It may be challenging at first if they’re live wires. But it’s all good going forward. While you’re shifting your hefty weight around with your kids, you’re spending healthy, quality time with them. It doesn’t have to be arduous. Play physically active games with them. They love winning, so no problem there. It doesn’t matter if you’re the slow coach in the family; at least you’re moving your arms and legs.

The kitchen becomes a focal point

Because you will always need to be tuned into what you need to eat every day, your full attention on what goes on, in and out of the kitchen is required. Careful planning and preparation time will be required to ensure that the ingredients you are using remain healthy. The cooking time is also important. For instance, over cooked vegetables quickly lose all of its essential nutrients. And those of you who are so conscious about time need not worry, because cooking healthy food takes a lot quicker than roasts and big time barbecues.

Your gym time is your me time

Because it’s such an important part of your excess weight loss regime, you are going to need to spend time out of your week doing weights at the gym. As I said before, you don’t need an entire hour if you’re pressed for time. In any case, it’s a good idea to start small. But do make sure that you’ve managed to squeeze in at least two thirty minute sessions of weight training per week. That’s also important in setting the pace for maintaining consistency in your regime.

Everything falls into place

Where a lot of guys got it wrong in the past is that they overburdened themselves far too much on what needed to come off around the middle. They went on crash diets forgetting that they still had to exercise. They also dreaded it because they thought it was going to be tough and boring. But if you do everything that is required, you’ll be putting yourself into a nice rhythm that can be maintained.
