How to Lose Those Last Few Pounds!

If you're one of the many people who have lost a lot of weight already or just want to lose a few pounds, you'll know how very difficult that is. However, if you've nearly attained your goal weight and just want to know how to lose the last 5 pounds or only have about 5 pounds to lose anyway, you will at least be more active and able to do exercise or sport than those with a lot of weight still to lose.
Unfortunately, that last bit of weight can be hard to shift but there are products and methods that can help.
Here are some tips for how to lose the last 5 pounds.
Tip #1
Don't give up and go on a binge. That will undo all your hard work thus far.
Tip #2
Don't stress about just 5 pounds. You may find that doing some high intensity exercise or just increasing your exercise regime will not only shift the weight while you stick to your existing diet, but will tighten and tone your muscles too. Exercise increases your metabolic rate and transforms fat into muscle as well as giving you that feel good factor because of the endorphins released in your brain by the additional activity.
Tip #3
When choosing your exercise routine, go for something that you really enjoy. After all, if you aren't a good swimmer then trying to swim fifty lengths four times a week is going to be a real trial. There are plenty of activities to choose from as well as the standard running, cycling, rowing and aerobics classes. Why not give a marshal art a try; something like Taekwondo or kick boxing or if that's a bit too exotic, Yoga and Pilates are great for toning. Dancing is another great form of exercise so give ceroc a try or rock n' roll or even belly dancing, which is becoming increasingly popular.
Tip #4
Whatever form of exercise you decide to do, do stick to it by setting yourself a schedule of a number of times a week and the length of time. If you do high intensity workouts then two or three times a week for twenty minutes or so will be enough but if you go the aerobic route, three or four times weekly for forty to sixty minutes will be needed.
Tip #5
For those that only need to lose a few pounds, it's an unfortunate fact that some treats which form part of your normal diet will have to go. Carbohydrates, sugars, fats and alcohol, even if normally taken in moderation will need to be cut back to a bare minimum.
Hopefully these tips on how to lose the last 5 pounds will be helpful but above all, don't give up, you can do it
