Weightloss tip 17

Today's tip
Well this is your last daily tip. Starting form next week Karen & I will be offering 1 tip each per week. With nearly 20 tips to boot, you should be off to a great start. What a journey its been so far....

Many of us have lost some weight and are feeling good about ourselves, but after 7 weeks of it, it can get 'boring'. Oh oooh - there's that word that trips so many of us up.

Tip: A change is as good as a holiday.

Hmm, I can hear you thinking, that's a  strange tip for losing weight.  Yes, and no.  Boredom and busy-ness are 2 major pitfalls to losing weight long-term.  We give up because its all too hard, we are too busy and we're bored with the program. 

SO...take a break. 

Not for too long, just a couple of days, OR make a change.  Do something completely different to what you have been doing. We need to keep ourselves interested and feeling keen. Life does get busy and stuff happens, but its OK as long as you keep focused on what your trying to achieve in the long run.  You will get there....your on your way now.

What could you do differently this week?


  1. This saturday, the whole family are going to go down to the local park where they have a 20 minute walk with excercise equipment at intervals along the way - its a great initiative by council. The kids keep asking when can they have a go?

  2. I think that next week I'll take a drive to the beach and have a walk along there. Will make a nice change. Also I'll have a kick of the footy with my 10yo son.

  3. Aww, that sounds awesome - I'm so jealous! Can't wait till May when we go to Burleigh Heads - there's a great walk there that goes up the hill and down to the beach.


Your suggestions are welcome and we thankyou for your comments.
