Quick Tips On How To Maintain Weight Loss

Quick Tips On How To Maintain Weight Loss

One of the biggest struggles people face while trying to lose weight is keeping it off. The question of how to maintain weight loss is one that everyone has asked themselves at some point on their weight loss journey. Usually you will ask this question after losing the first few pounds, and again after meeting your weight loss goals. Countless people have lost the first 10 to 20 pounds only to gain them back again, and others have made it to their goal only to start gaining it back again. Here are some tips that will help you through both scenarios:

How to Maintain Weight Loss During Your Diet Program

    • Reward yourself for your weight loss with nonfood options, like a pedicure, movie or item you’ve been wanting
    • Keep your eye on the finish line – think of yourself as a marathon runner who cannot give up after reaching the first couple of milestones. You must finish the race.
    • Don’t try to lose too quickly. 1 to 3 pounds per week is a healthy goal to have, and your body will thank you for taking it slowly!
    • Stick to what works – diet hopping is not a healthy way to lose weight. Even if you have hit a plateau, stick with the same program and you will eventually see the scale dop again.
    • Get an accountability partner. This should be someone you trust who will lose weight along with you and meet with you once or twice a week for moral support.

      • Say hello to exercise. While dieting, your food was restricted, but you can’t restrict yourself forever, so now you should stay active to keep your goal weight.
      • Deal with your issues. If food was a problem before, it will become one again, so now it’s time to take care of your emotional health. Go to counseling, talk to friends, and do whatever it takes to deal with your problems so they won’t hinder your life anymore.
      • Love yourself – it’s time to relax a little and take some time to get to know the new you!
      • Get enough sleep – studies show that not sleeping enough can contribute to weight gain.

      Wherever you are in your weight loss journey, remember to be kind to yourself. It’s not worth it to waste time angry or frustrated at yourself. You will get there eventually if you keep on going, so when you fail, pick yourself up, dust yourself off and keep going.

      8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

      8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

      We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

      On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

      Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

      1. Smart Door Locks

      A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

      2. Smart Kitchen Tools

      Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

      3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

      If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

      4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

      These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

      5. Nest Thermostat

      This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

      6. Smart Lighting

      Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

      7. Google Chromecast Ultra

      Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

      8. Canary

      This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
