In case we would like and dream of the perfect shapes and want to shed few extra pounds we are so fed up with, we must start at least with something and somewhere. Actually, as for me personally I consider New Year to be the right moment, as it is the time when everyone makes different resolutions and puts beforehand some goals. Unfortunately, the majority of people tend to quite about February or even earlier. Interestingly, there are some things or, perhaps, burning reasons, to be kept in mind in case you want to follow your weight loss resolutions and intentions. Here, of course, you must be realistic about the plans itself and objectively value your efforts and strengths. Remarkably, you are not advisable to get rid of about 40 pounds in a month. I can guarantee and give 100 percent that you are to fail, lose your temper and finally the only thing you come up with is the fact that you must just dive up, otherwise, you tend to think yourself, and you are collapse psychologically and physically. Admittedly, you had better lose 4 pounds in a month, and when you finally shed 5, you can be considered a real star. Besides, you should not forget about the timing. If you think of January as the best time to start with, I have the opposite thought on this issue. As far as in the Northern Hemisphere is too cold right now and your motivation can fade away just in a single moment that you cannot even notice it. Perhaps, you come to the conclusion to start walking in March or April or, maybe, to spend few months in a gym before going outside. No matter what you have decided. The only think that must coincide and go together is the diet and the exercises. Look here. If you are dieting for a couple of months, you are not to shed as mush as you have planned. This is, actually, the natural process and occurrence that as the result lead to the low motivation and even to the broken dreams of starting walking and training.
In fact, the only think I can advise you is to visualize, but remember that this visualization should be realistic and match your ideology and beliefs. For instance, a 45 year old man can imagine himself having the body and posture of an 18 year old. Unfortunately, it is impossible to happen. That is why you must think of something that you can easily reach. For example, visualize yourself wearing such the cloths that you cannot even get into few weeks ago or think of running to the bus without getting breathless. To my mind, that is just perfect motivation that will make you go round and do something powerful and efficient to make your dream come true.
