Feel Good With Walking to Lose Weight
Feeling good while walking or doing other things to lose weight is vitally important. We lose weight by sticking to a process that works for us. We stick to this process over time by feeling good about it enough to do it consistently. Weight stays off by keeping up the basics of the process once the desired weight loss is achieved.
For this reason any weight loss process is more than ‘exercise’ it is a lifestyle decision. For the same reason it has to be a lot better than ‘old style’ exercise or diets.
Let’s look at your support structure. Does it include a variety of exercise options that include all weather and circumstances? Is it generally financially sound and not at risk of dropping off when other commitments get in the way? Can it withstand the occasional injury or health problem?
Walking to lose weight suits modern lifestyles. It is flexible, cheap, feels good, and most ages or ability can do it.
Walking to lose weight is a popular choice for weight loss exercise and my observation over the last few years has an increasing number of walkers out on the streets and not just in the pretty or scenic places. Running also has become sexy as exercise and attracts an increasing number, especially men, although plenty of women indulge.
The largest consumer research report in the USA over the last decade found that the majority of those researched who had successfully lost weight and then maintained most of that weight loss for the next 5 years, continued their exercise program during those 5 years post weight loss. Walking was the most popular exercise for weight loss. It was a mainstay with successful losers who then chose a variety of exercises that they enjoyed to add to the variety and feel good factor.
