Loose Weight Tips - Weight-Loss Tips from Amy Johnston

We've all been there ...

Just not cracking it when it comes to weight loss?
Try following these tips to success from the Weight Watchers New Zealand Slimmer of The Year winner, Amy Johnston.

1. Make the decision to get the most out of life. As the saying goes."Life's to short".
2. Start small, dream big, work you way up.
3. Work positive things into your life. Be positive, positive, positive - even if you are lying to yourself, fake it till you make it.
4. Don't set yourself a time limit on getting to Goal weight. Everyone is different. Setting limits sets you up for failure.
5. Develop a split personality. Talk to yourself and tell yourself you are beautiful, talented and successful, but also get down to the nitty-gritty and face your shortfalls.
6. Forget about models and celebrities. Size 14 is healthy and beautiful.
7. Face facts: you have issues. You don't become overweight by accident. What are you really using food for? Are you nourishing your body or are you just angry, lonely or tired? Stamp your feet, ring a friend or just take a break, instead of comfort eating.
8. Exercise. That "dirty" word. Commit, make up your mind and force your body to follow. Lie to yourself and tell yourself you love it. And you know, one day you will!
9. Do it yourself. You are worth spending the time and effort it takes to lose weight. Be selfish about making "me" time.
10. Keep that desire to reach Goal weight burning. This is the biggest challenge. On my journey I failed almost every day with something, but learnt to shrug it off and start again with the next breath. As the Chinese proverb says: "Fall down seven times, and stand up eight."
