With summer of 2018 officially over, it is important for you to take a good, hard look at your body now to see what kind of shape you are in and also to determine just what your expectations are for the rest of the year. With Halloween just around the corner, and then Thanksgiving and the Holidays, you need to know what your weight is now and just how much weight you are willing to gain during the holidays.
Here are a few diet tips that can help you maintain your weight or even lose weight going into the rest of this year, so that when spring comes around next year, you will still be able to fit into your summer clothes!
Set your goals
Weigh yourself now and if you are at a weight that is comfortable for you, then set a maximum weight that you will not go over between now and spring time. This might be three or five pounds, or maybe more, but keep in mind that those pounds will be hard to lose once you put them on.
If you are still trying to diet and you want to continue losing weight, then you can use this time of year to continue your diet, but take it easy on yourself since you might not have the same activity opportunities that you would have in the summer time.
Find Different Activities To Do
When the weather is warm, it is easy to go out for a walk or a jog, a swim, or a round of golf, but when it gets cold and rainy or snowy, it isn’t that easy. So, make sure that you have a plan for how you are going to get in your thirty minutes of activity per day. That should be an absolute minimum if you want to maintain your weight, an if you are looking at losing weight, then you will want to do even more.
Track Your Diet
One thing that a lot of successful dieters have in common is that they are known to track their eating habits. If you have never done this before, then you might be surprised at just how far off you are in your daily calorie calculations. When you track your diet or keep a “food diary”, you will find that keeping your weight under control is a whole lot easier.
Follow the Advice of Successful Dieters
Finally, when you see someone who has lost weight, it is pretty normal to ask them how they did it, or what their secret is. These tips for women dieters can really help you to remain encouraged and to lose weight gradually over the fall months. Getting advice and support from fellow dieters is one of the best things that any dieter can do since it helps to keep you accountable for your diet and exercise and it also gives you someone to brag to!
