Should You Join A Weight Loss Competition?


If you're trying to lose weight you might be pleasantly surprised to know that there are community-based websites out there that sponsor a weight loss competition or two. How does it work? In true community fashion, someone sets up a contest and members then decide if they're going to join or not.The pot grows as different members join.

We think a weight loss competition is fun and it's something you should do especially if you've been having a hard time reaching your weight loss goal. The hardest thing about weight loss is this: while it's easy to gain pounds, losing them is never easy, especially when you've ballooned to more than 200 pounds.

However, you shouldn't lose hope because weight loss is achievable, although it may be difficult in the beginning. But if you want to make it easy, just join a weight loss competition or several of them. Just make sure you don't do anything extreme just to win the contest. Remember, a contest isn't a contest if it isn't fun.

There are many ways that you can lose weight. You only need to look at magazines and websites to know that there are many weight loss pills and diet programs out there. For us, however, obesity and being overweight are lifestyle diseases that can only be healed by making some lifestyle changes. So, if you're really serious about losing weight, you can start by asking yourself what led you to become so overweight. You might be surprised, but the reason people are overweight is not because of how the food tastes. It takes more than taste for people to binge for a long period of time.

When you've addressed those internal issues, talk to a weight loss specialist and ask about how much weight you need to lose without making yourself look emaciated. In the alternative, you can go to a calculator website that does the math on your ideal weight. Subtract from your current weight your ideal weight to get how many pounds you need to lose. When you have this number, go to a weight loss calculator website to know how long it's going to realistically take you to get rid of those pounds.

When you have this information, go ahead and list down some of the things you can do right now in order to lose weight – like walking around your neighborhood for one hour or throwing away the cookies in your cupboards. The important thing is to do one thing everyday that will make you lose weight. Be consistent in your efforts and do not stop until you see results. Rome was not built in a day and it certainly took a few years of binging before you became overweight, so why should you expect yourself to lose pounds instantly?

Anyway, in order to keep you on track, you can hire a coach or ask a friend to keep cheer you on and to remind you of your goals.
