  1. Spring Clean for Weight Loss Success:  Clean out your environment for greater success. Take some time to set yourself up for success by bringing the healthy foods you need into your home and either getting rid of tempting foods or putting them out of sight.  Pull out the smaller plates or ones with patterned borders.  The designs help to visually reduce the size of the dish, encouraging you to serve and eat-less.

Props:  Healthy snack options like fruits and veggies, air popped popcorn, etc             Dish with patterned border vs. regular plates

  1. Track: Record what you are eating in a way that makes sense to you. These days you could do it in a myriad of ways from paper and pen, to an app, to simply taking photos of every meal you eat. The added accountability and data can lead to greater success.   Weight Watchers 360 mobile app, available to Weight Watchers members and online subscribers, makes tracking food a breeze.  With the new Snap & Track feature, you can literally take a picture of your food and drinks and it will integrate right into the apps Points Plus tracker.

Props:  Smart Phone, Tracker

  1. Say no to deprivation: Make sure not to cut out the foods you love. Jennifer Hudson eats chocolate every day. She knows how to manage chocolate because she ate it as she lost weight. Had she cut it out she would have struggled to manage it once at her goal. It is all about portions and moderation.

Props:  Small Dark Chocolate, Oven Roasted Dark Chocolate Almonds

  1. Avoid boredom. Challenge yourself to try a new recipe or food each week. This will increase your repertoire of go-to foods and make you more knowledgeable about the impact those foods have on you. Here is a great Weight Watchers staple recipe: Did you know:  Chickpeas (or garbanzo beans) are the most widely consumed legume in the world. And a great source of protein?
  1. Get Active.  Understand that all movement is good movement. Resolve not to start too big, rather start small and allow yourself to celebrate every added step or minute of movement. Shake up your walking routine by using Google Maps to scope out new streets to stroll down.  Take time to find the right time for you to be active.

To help with motivation, Weight Watchers teamed with Philips to create ActiveLink exclusively for its members.  Its the first and only activity monitor and web experience that translates your movements to activity PointsPlus values. ActiveLink allows users to set personalized goals, seamlessly track their activity routines from walking the dog to hitting the gym to help them reach their goal of becoming more active over time.

Props: Tennis shoes, Active Link.

      There are some good tips listed in the answers, here are a few more. Recent studies have shown that having eggs for breakfast will increase energy during the day and act as a natural weight suppressant. Have listed an article on using eggs as a weight loss food.

      First off, have a great time at the prom! Secondly, you want to get to that lower weight doing it healthy. 1200 is a reasonable amount of calories, but I’m pretty sure those calories are not coming from all the nutrients your body needs. You don’t want your weight loss coming to a crashing halt! I know all about the crazy diets out there. You don’t have to spend ANY money on a quick fix or gimmick that may not work or work only for a few weeks. I have been on a natural eating plan and I lost 50 pounds in about 5 months. You’re younger, it may be faster. I also incorporated lots of exercise to burn more fat. This way of eating is called Paleo, or the Cave Diet. Eat everything your ancestors ate! If mother nature made it, eat it, if man made it, don’t touch it! It’s as simple as that. Go to the Cave Diet link below. You will lose weight, feel happier, glow from the inside out. Good luck!

    What Are Some Weight Loss Tips And Low Impact Cardio Exercises? I am 19, stand at around 5’8″ and weigh 172 pounds. I have been doing diet and exercise for about 3 weeks, and have lost 16 pounds so far. My diet consists of 1200 calories a day (healthy foods), 64 oz. of water a day, and also about 2 cups of coffee every morning (I sometimes don’t have time to finish my second cup). I have also been doing varying cardio exercises.. I try to switch it out everyday and focus on different areas each day. Some days I’ll work on my legs, some days my arms and chest area, and some days my abdominals. I do yoga, walking, jogging, push ups, sit ups, jumping jacks, lifting medium sized weights and of course I stretch before I do any work out at all. I just want to know what are some lower impact cardio exercises and weight loss tips? I love cardio and how good it makes me feel, but things like jumping jacks really hurt my knees (they haven’t ever hurt this bad before, even when I used to do jumping jacks when I was younger), and running is a bit too much because I not only have shin splints, but also the last time I started a running routine I ended up with a hairline fracture in each shin, and I am also very flat footed so it is very jarring.

    What are some low impact cardio routines I can do if I have no equipment? I am saving up for a bicycle right now… But that’s about all I can think of other than the things I have already been doing. I feel like I’m not doing enough though.

    **Note: When I started my diet three weeks ago, that was when I had just got back into exercise because I had a baby in December and had a high risk, difficult pregnancy and couldn’t exercise through out due to a risk to my baby. That’s why I need to find out about more low impact exercises, because it is still fresh to me and I feel like I don’t want to push myself too hard right off the bat because it might strain me.
    ***Edit: Also, thank you, but I’m really not interested in using supplements or pills or anything like that. I take a multivitamin, that’s it. I’m not interested in scham pills because if there even is an actual weight loss pill that actually makes you ‘melt off the pounds’, it doesn’t really sound healthy…

      The best advice I could ever give you is losing weight takes time. If you’ve tried and failed many times (which is what I am going through), you have to start slowly. Maybe start cutting out bad things in your diet little by little. You can’t expect to go from eating sugary processed foods and not exercising much to extreme healthy eating and exercising 7 days a week in one day, or even one week. You have to learn to control yourself and that means start small and keep everything under control. Another VERY important thing to remember is to NEVER EVER EVER give up! No matter if you go a whole week eating junk foods and not exercising, that does not mean you have to give up and never reach your goals. Just think, well, next week I’ll do better and get back on track. You have to believe you can do it. You have to want it for yourself and no one else.

      Exercise at least 5 times per week. I suggest strength training and cardio. Let’s say Monday you walk/run for 30 minutes, then Tuesday you would do push ups and sit ups and planks, and squats and then take a break Wednesday and start back up on Thursday.

      As far as your eating you really need to watch what you eat! That is the most important step. Portion control is important. If you normally get a big dinner, then cut the amount of food you get in half and that will help a lot. Another way is to get your plate and only eat 3/4 of the food you have on your plate.

      Eating healthy, lean meats, whole grain breads, and staying away from sugary things and high calorie foods. Always remember that cutting out something bad with something healthy really makes a difference. Drinking sodas and eating candy bars is empty calories. If you replace those things with a whole grain waffle or one small piece of dark chocolate it will really help.
