Ways to Lose Weight, Even While You Travel

It’s that time of year again. The New Year has begun. I shared with you that formula I learned about on how to achieve your goals.

How to Make Your New Year’s Resolution Happen

I applied the formula for your travel New Year’s Resolutions and so now let’s apply it to something else:

Weight!

(Weight is from the formula above) You need to get a desired clear state about what you want if you want this to work

Yes, I know. I have struggled with weight issues a majority of my life. Recently, however, I was able to lose 30 lbs. I started before the holidays this year, so I hope that helped me get a head start on the Christmas 10. If you gain 10 lbs every Christmas for 3 years, well, you know what that means. I am making a commitment to continuing to keep the weight off this year.

You must be dissatisfied with your current weight to make this change, you must have a clear objective, create practical steps to make the weight loss work and you must factor in what it will cost you to change. Remember, there are two sides to that equation, so make sure you work on both sides.

Some of my dissatisfaction of my weight (A in the formula above) and biggest motivating factors are:

My work: you may be surprised to hear that traveling around the world for a living is stressful and difficult in more ways that you think. Things like hiking or walking for hours was getting harder and harder. Things like not being able to keep a consistent workout plan in place. Things like the variation of foods that occur from place to place. Things like sleeping in different places each night with different beds, different pillows, etc.

My health: having had a bad knee since a skiing accident 15 years ago, my knee and foot are not in the best of shape, so I know losing weight with xenical and will help them not have to carry around an extra 30 lbs.

Here are a few practical steps to try to reach your weight loss goals while traveling (D in the formula above):

Walk more: With so many things to see and do while you are traveling, you can actually walk more than when you are at home.

Try different foods as well as fresh, local produce. Trying new foods has actually been proven to trick your brain into eating less by registering satisfaction sooner. While traveling, you will see what is in season and those would be the best choices for you while on the road.

Snack less, bring healthy snacks with you: Cutting back on the snacking way to lose weight while traveling. You know, those free snacks they give you on the plane? Those are just sheer junk calories and not good for you to be eating. So my #1 way to combat this is to bring along my own healthy snacks. That way, when I am hungry, I can reach for something that is either really good or really healthy.

Drink more water: Can’t negate having more water, so instead of buying those expensive water bottles at the airport past security, bring along a bottle that you can fill up at the water fountain. That way, when you get to your room at the hotel/villa rental, you will already have your water with you.

Now, the part of the equation not to ignore:  X, the cost of the change:

For me, for years, it was comfort. Comfort in being lazy, in being sedentary.  Now that my health issues have caught up with the laziness, then health is a new motivating factor.  Health is something that many people don’t think so much about until it is gone.

What keeps you from making these changes?  What is the cost of that?
