Do not embark on a fitness program that you are going to dread doing. Instead, find a form of exercise that really gets you excited and motivated. Some of us love to go to the gym, while others like to be left alone in the privacy of their home to burn fat on their NordicTrack. Whichever you choose the key to success is consistency. Don't waste valuable time sitting around and talking about it...Just Do It!
Secondly, and of utmost importance, start to pay more attention to proper nutrition. If you don't know what to eat, I would suggest purchasing the "Burn Fat...Build Muscle Pack", which is a complete nutrition and vitamin supplement program that is sold in over 5000 stores nationally. More than 30 doctors recommend it.
You can find tons of combos right here at Bodybuilding.com,
And now that we are on the subject of health food stores, it is a good idea to locate a health food store that sells foods that is low in fat and low in sodium. You will be surprised how good food taste when you add a flavorful product like Enrico's No Salt Salsa, or No Salt Spaghetti Sauce. You can also find a variety of no salt breads like Sour Dough Rye Bread. A good healthy weight loss and fitness program should also be enjoyable and tasty!
Finally, I strongly recommend that you don't set unrealistic goals for yourself. It takes time to gain body fat and it will also take a few months to lose that 40 pounds. But don't get discouraged and stay focused, because the body of your dreams is just a few short months away. If you start your exercise program and practice good eating habits now, then you will look great before mid summer rolls around. Don't procrastinate... Start right now! You can even get a group together at work and make a money pool that will go to the person that improves their body the most by the time summer rolls around. Take photos of each person in the group and the group as a whole and help each other stay on the program. Always be encouraging and motivate each other. Contests like this can be very encouraging and helpful for those that needs that little kick in the butt to get started. And once you get started you will be healthier, leaner and happier for it.
