One key element needed for weight loss is increased physical activity. Some is better than none and more is better up to a point. However, this doesn't mean you have to go out everyday and vigorously exercise to achieve results. Every little bit of activity matters. Your attitude should be that ‘anything counts' with regards to physical activity. Mowing your lawn or washing your car burns calories and counts as physical exercise. A structured exercise regimen is not necessary, at least initially, to achieve weight loss. If you've been inactive for quite some time just adding in lifestyle physical activities can kick start your weight loss. The more weight you lose the more active you need to be to continue losing weight.
So remember, count everything as physical activity and feel good about the changes you are making. Start with small changes like intentionally parking further from the entrance of your favorite shopping center or begin taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Can you think of other ways to add more activity into your life? Then do it! Give it a try and see if it helps you begin to lose weight.
