Tips to Lose 5 Pounds - or at least look like it!

So you indulged over the holidays (join the club) and your New Years Resolution is to lose five pounds.   Here are some helpful tips to help you keep your resolution to lose five pounds — or at least look the part!

  • Tip to Lose 5 Pounds #1: Stash healthy snacks at the office.  The next time you’re jonesing for a snack, reach for healthy roasted peanuts or trail mix instead of cookies.
  • Tip to Lose 5 Pounds #2: Grab a friend and get into an exercise routine.  Having a work-out partner will help you stay consistent and committed to your goal.  You’d be amazed at the difference a 15-minute walk will do for your body everyday.
  • Tip to Lose 5 Pounds #3: Use accessories to draw attention away from problem areas.  A colorful scarf will draw the eyes away from your tummy.
  • Tip to Lose 5 Pounds #4: Wear the dominant, attention-getting color near the face to draw the attention up. 
  • Tip to Lose 5 Pounds #5: Stand up straight!  Good posture will make you look 10 pounds lighter in a snap.

A New Year, A New You! Photo c/o dailymakeover.com

It is a new year, and a new you may be waiting just around the corner.  Perhaps 2010 is the year to upgrade your appearance.  Maybe you’d like a new way of wearing your hair, an improved way of applying a little makeup, or a plan for a winning wardrobe. 

Achieving an improvement in personal appearance is one of the fastest, most effective ways I know to boost self-esteem.  When you like yourself, it’s a lot easier to pick yourself up when the going gets rough and do whatever has to be done in your day.

Break overwhelmingly large projects into smaller and more manageable steps to be completed one by one.  With each small goal achieved, you’ll feel the joy of victory. 

One such victory was won by a woman whose time and budget were devoted to her family.  She had dreamed of a total make-over for herself, but there never seemed enough time or funds to work on such an enormous project.

Look forward to the marvelous sense of accomplishment that awaits you.  Think of how great you’ll feel when you look in the mirror and see a revitalized you!

Commitment to the task is vital.  Put it on your calendar so it becomes a real part of your life.  Many people are spurred to action when they’ve got a target day to aim for.  “Today I am determined to improve my appearance,” is the promise one busy bread-winner makes to herself. 

So I ask you, what one small improvement in your looks have you wanted to make for a long time?  The new year holds the promise for a more attractive appearance for those who have decided that the time is now.  Have a Happy Near Year!
