If you believe you are over-weight, you have options to help you lose weight. The first thing you should do is consult your physician to conduct a complete health physical, including bloodwork to determine if you have any health problems that may have caused your weight-gain or any illnesses that may hinder your weight loss goals. Your doctor should also calculate your BMI to determine what is a healthy weight for you based on your height and weight. This will help you know exactly how much weight you should lose to be a healthier you. One of the first steps to addressing weight-loss is to establish how much food is eaten daily. Weight-loss is best achieved when you modify your lifestyle. You should implement cardiovascular and muscle-strengthening exercises to your daily routine. Weight-loss is measured by calories burned exceeding calories consumed. Establish a 90-day weight-loss plan and monitor your success at the end of every week. Give yourself short-term goals to reach at the end of 30 days and reward yourself with gifts for your progress. If your weight-loss goals are harder to achieve or if you are not losing the recommended amount of weight on your own, seek assistance.
