Body Positivity Tips

How to Keep up Body Positivity Even While on a Lengthy Diet

While you’re following a long diet, body positivity is something that can come and go. When it’s not there, it can be tough to remain upbeat and optimistic about where things are heading. After all, when you’re talking months or years of effort, instead of days or weeks, it’s a lot of work.

Throughout the time I’ve been losing weight, I think about food, exercise, sleep and other factors all the time. They’re always somewhere on my mind – front or back. It’s a lot. Especially because I know why those factors are always on my mind. It’s because I haven’t reached my healthy body or goal weight yet. I’m not there. Sometimes, when I’m not at my best, my mind translates that into “you’re flawed, ugly, and never going to get there.” Not a good feeling.

Plogging for Fitness

Plogging My Way to a Fitter Body

I first heard of plogging about this time last year. It was something that a few teens were doing locally, and they made it to the newspaper. They took on an anti-litter trend that became popular in Sweden, where the trend got its name.

Plogging refers to an activity where walkers, joggers and runners head out with a bag and collect trash along the way as they find it. Whether it’s along a nature trail or along the sidewalks of their neighborhood, it’s meant to help get trash out of nature.

Keto Diet Mistakes I Made

The 3 Keto Diet Mistakes I Made and Why I Gave Up

15Although I was hoping to be able to give my own review on this trendy form of dieting, I made a lot of keto diet mistakes that I think are better to share. They made the diet unpleasant, likely harder than it would have been, and frustrating enough that I gave up.

I can’t tell you if keto dieting is good or not because I didn’t do it right. So my hope is to be able to share all the ways that I did it wrong, so that if you’re determined to try it, you won’t make the same keto diet mistakes.

Green Lifestyle for Weight Loss

How to Lose Weight While Living a Green Lifestyle

Living a green lifestyle has become extremely important to the future of the planet. In fact, the majority of us aren’t doing everything that is needed in order to help prevent irreparable damage that will make parts of the world that are currently home to massive populations rapidly uninhabitable. That said, as we make eco-friendly changes to our lives, it’s important to be sure that they aren’t at a cost to our health.

For instance, the last thing you want to do is adopt a green lifestyle and only end up gaining weight as a result. Moreover, many people find that when they’re on a diet, they are already facing considerable restrictions and they are hesitant to impose more lifestyle changes while they’re already overhauling their lives.

Height, Age and Your Best Body Weight

What Your Height and Age Has to Do with Your Best Body Weight

When I decided it was time for me to start losing weight, I knew I needed to drop some pounds. That said, the first thing most diets ask you when you want to get started is what your goal weight is. Easier said than done. I know what I weighed a million years ago when I was slim and thought that it was easy to keep the weight off (shows what I knew!).

Still, when I look at what my weight was at that time and what it was at my highest, it stopped seeming realistic that I would get back down to that low weight. What’s more, even if I could get down to that weight, it didn’t seem like it was the best idea for me anymore. I started doing some research into what my weight should be and found out that age does actually impact what your ideal weight should be, just like your sex and your height makes a difference.
