More Thinspirations

Tuesday, October 9, 2007

The calender reads Tuesday and alas, yours truly finally met up with her Baby. But but, Mr Loverboy is busy snoring away on the bed beside me, and i shall share some weight loss tips that i found on SkinnyJeansss. Those girls on _realthin and SkinnyJeansss, are mega thinspiration i swear.

Weight Loss Tips

1. Drink a glass of water every hour. It will make you feel full.

2. Eat at least one meal a day, don’t try to fast for days and days. Fasting for long periods of time slows down the metabolism. It also increases binge cravings immensely and affects your mood greatly. So instead of being happy for losing weight, you’ll be depressed simply because of lack of food.

3. If you live on your own or have a lot of privacy, tape/tack up pictures of your favorite models and always carry one around with you. When you're hungry pull out the picture. If you live on your own, tape them up on the fridge, freezer, and cupboards (just remember to take them down or cover them when people come over).

4. In between each mouthful of food that you eat, take a sip of water. It fills you up and slows down your eating so that you stay in control and the meal doesn’t turn into a flat-out binge.

5. When drinking water, drink ICE COLD water.. Your body has to burn calories to keep your body temperature up.

6. Try to eat in the same place every day. Somewhere solitary. Not in front of the TV or computer. If you have to stop what you’re doing to go eat you might not even bother.

7. Eat what you crave. But eat it before you crave it in moderation. For instance, instead of a whole chocolate bar, get one of the small ones and only eat 1/2 of it. Allow yourself to enjoy it. Deprivation leads to binge-ing.

8. Sleep at least 6 hours a night. Less than 6 hours sleep a night stimulates appetite by 15%. It really is important to get as much sleep as possible. Not just for weight loss, but because it helps the body stay healthy.

9. Always eat teaspoon size amounts of food at any one time and chew well. You will become fuller with less food so won’t want to finish what's on your plate.

10. Try drinking more hot beverages, especially in fall and winter. Hot liquids expand the intestinal tract and make you feel more full. A warm drink can help take the edge off your hunger, preventing overindulging later. In fact, soup can do the same. Bullion cubes are only 5 calories a cube, and they taste wonderful.

11. Focus especially on the first three bites. After that, the excitement of eating will begin to slowly subside, and you'll probably be content with a smaller portion.

12. When you go out, take only a few bucks with you so when you walk past the pastry shops you can't afford anything.

13. Before you dig into that carton of ice cream, bag of chips, etc., take a deep breath and count to 100. Usually, by the time you stop counting you will have convinced yourself that you don't really need it.

14. Write a note to yourself listing all the reasons you are finally ready to lose weight. Keep this letter with you at all times, for inspiration.

15. Sit up straight. You'll burn at least ten percent more calories sitting upright than reclining.

At the end of the entry, i had already drank 1 bottle of water, felt hungry, ogled at skinny girls, counted to 100 twice, and is sitting so straight that my tummy is trembling and my back is aching. It seems like my motivation for weight loss is back !! WOOSAA (:
