5 Weapons for Battling Weight Loss

If you are currently in the process of battling against being overweight, you will know that it is more difficult than expected to shift those unwanted pounds. Not only do you have to think about your diet, but you also have to combine this with exercise for effective results. Only doing one of those things will slow down any weight loss progress, and might also discourage your long-term plans for a healthy lifestyle – to the point where you revert back to your old, unhealthy ways.
Thankfully, there are plenty of methods available that will help you get trim and remain that way. Read on for five weapons to use when battling weight loss.
Don’t completely cut out the foods you love
When going on a diet, and if you’re not the biggest fan of healthy foodstuffs, it is not all doom and gloom in terms of what you eat. In fact, you don’t even have to cut out the food that you currently enjoy. It could just be a case of reducing portion sizes, or going with a low-fat alternative. This way you won’t be making a drastic lifestyle change, and your motivation levels will stay high.
Suppress your hunger
If you’re used to eating a large quantity of food during mealtimes, the aforementioned point of cutting down on portion sizes may be a struggle. That is, if you don’t use a tool that will assist with suppressing your hunger. The all natural hunger control tablets by, help you feel full quicker and reduce the need for excessive food consumption.
Exercise on a regular basis
A little bit of exercise here and there will help to a small extent, but it’s not going to generate a notable level of success. The best route to dropping weight – and also improving your fitness levels – is by having a regular exercise routine. Whether it is going to the gym three times a week or taking a walk each morning, frequent activity is the ideal step towards a healthy life.
Start a new hobby
Starting a new hobby is a great way to get trim. Plus this doesn’t have to involve something as strenuous as the previously mentioned exercise. Having an interest in painting or playing guitar will not only aid you in moving about (especially if you have classes/organized events outside of your home), but it will also help divert your attention from feeling the need to consume food. The latter is due to the fact you won’t be settled into your normal routine, where grabbing a bite to eat might be the norm.
Stay patient
When dieting, a trap many fall into is a lack of patience due to not gaining immediate results. What you need to understand is that any healthy, sustainable diet plan is one that needs to be based on a long-term plan. If you hit a week where you only drop a pound or two (or even put on that amount), don’t feel discouraged – it’s the long-term goal that should be the focus.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
