It is true you can lose weight without making a drastic lifestyle change, but sometimes developing a regular fitness plan is essential to losing weight and maintaining a healthy body. The point of this article, for you, as a woman, is to support the weight loss and to keep your body fit, for your family and yourself for the rest of your life. In that case, consider these realities: This article is to benefit women who want to lose 50 pounds in a year (about 4 pounds per month).

If you are 50 pounds or more overweight, you will first need to consult your physician about what fitness and health plan are right for you. Although you may not need to lose 50 pounds, each of the tips here can apply to you as well. Next, don’t be afraid that exercise will make you want to eat more. You have to realize that while high-intensity training does increase one’s appetite, the moderate intensity exercise that you will probably be doing will decrease your appetite for several hours after you work out. Exercise may not result in immediate weight loss. That is because your body is converting fat to muscle and muscle weighs more. However, a muscular body will burn more calories, in the long run, doing day to day activities than a little more fluff body will. Even if you don’t see immediate results on the scale, stay consistent.

You will lose more weight if you combine endurance training (such as aerobics, stair stepper, or bicycling) with weight and strength training. If you are seriously overweight or obese, you should start your exercise regime by doing sit down exercises rather than jump into a routine that is not sustainable. For instance, while sitting in a chair, do a variety of arm raises, leg lifts bends, and leans. Also, consider water exercises such as swimming and water aerobics. In the water, there is less of a load on your knees and joints. Walking is an excellent form of exercise for overweight individuals. A good pair of walking shoes is the only equipment you will need. However, you might want to consider hooking up with a walking buddy, getting a dog, or investing in an iPod to make the walks go more quickly.

When you are determined to burn 500 additional calories a day, choosing an exercise routine that fits your lifestyle and your health level can be very beneficial for you. One thing I have discovered over the years, as a parent, is that by involving my children in my fitness routine it's a great way to stay motivated. My children became so involved that when Mom, tried to slack off, they would nag me to death until I got up off of my backside and worked out with them. One of their favorites was doing pushup and us competing who could do the most in a minute as I prepared to head off to basic training. Talk about quality time with my kids (that was so long ago as they are grown men now). Wow! Can you see that a fitness routine for women is not hard to do? It can be fun, and all the side benefits outweigh any disadvantages when you first start, trying to get healthy. 

Most importantly, do it for you and your family not what others think you should do. Get a calendar decide the days you will incorporate your workouts, cut out the synthetic caffeine, sugars, increase your protein intake, and DRINK LOTS of water (recommended amount is half your body weight in ounces).  Increase your faith, be confident, cry if you must but know you will achieve your goal as long as you continue to build a consistent habit of keeping yourself accountable to your schedule; get an accountability partner if needed. Don’t be emotionally attached to your progress but be committed to the process. Your goals don’t care about your feelings…now go out and get it done.
