When It’s Time to Lose Weight

How often are you entertaining a young child? It’s amazing how much energy they have really isn’t it?

But are they really that athletic – or is there an underlying reason behind your lack of breath and winded feeling?

Have you ever woken up suddenly in the dead of the night choking due to sleep apnea?

When It’s Time to Lose Weight

Maybe your favorite mainstream stores have suddenly stopped stocking your comfortable size…have they changed their stitching line? Why are you suddenly between sizes?

Let’s not beat around the bush here – there are thousands of reasons (and little pointers) to lose weight.

Keeping that in mind – why do so many people opt to ignore the signs?

Be it common fear of failure or simple comfort – signs are signs at the end of the day!

Medical Reasons to Start Shedding Those Pounds

The persuasive argument for fixing that flab is the imminent threat of related medical conditions.

How does heart disease, type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol sound to you?

Not that pleasant right?

As a rule of thumb – the more weight you total (or the heavier you are) the more likely you are to encounter some health problems along the way.

When you combine this with family health history it can paint quite a dark picture.

type 2 diabetes

You also may not be aware how important ‘shape’ is to your health direction.

The fatter, apple-shaped body is much more likely to see heart disease, cancer, and diabetes when compared with the more natural pear-shaped body (it’s all in the hips!!!).

I always find that the most effective form of initial motivation comes from a local GP or doctor.

A few frightening sentences from a man/woman in white and a strong a commitment to lose weight could be set in stone!

Did you know that every kilogram of weight lost annually over a period of a decade has been linked with a 33 percent lower risk of diabetes?

Let’s Get Personal

So the threat of a dodgy health life isn’t really enough to put you into the ‘diet zone’ – what about a few personal reasons?

These are a pretty awesome stepping stone to a slimmer lifestyle as long as you are not just concentrating on the short-term.

For example, if you work your butt off to fit into a dress for a wedding in two months time MAKE SURE you have long-term goals in place that can carry you on AFTER this event.

You need to ensure you keep the weight off and maintain the benefits of a healthier weight – long-term!

Let's Get Personal With Dieting

So what are the most common personal motivations for starting up a weight loss program…

  • Self esteem being affected by your size
  • Complete lack of energy on a daily basis
  • Body image – is the mirror your enemy?
  • Upcoming events
  • Favorite clothes and styles getting tighter and tighter
  • Depression
  • The need to look and feel more attractive to the opposite sex

When is The Best Time to Diet?

Losing weight requires commitment and dedication – it’s not all about the diet and food charts…it’s about complete changes to your lifestyle.

Your motivations need to be placed on solid ground – short-term goals will not bring the desired effect most of us are looking for.

Good luck and stay healthy!

  1. Hi Chris,

    Very nice and interesting article, I really like it.
    When I was younger, I always wanted to lose weight and the funny thing is that I was constantly saying that I’ll start my diet after the weekend or when I’ll go to a special party, etc..
    But I’ve finally realised that the best time to diet was when I am ready for it:) Well, I was never ready until I made a final decision.
    Today, I eat entirely differently, I have changed all my bad habits over the years, and I did lose a lot of weight, and I am stable even when I eat more than usual
    , I think it is because my body got used to it.
    However, with a bit of patience and perseverance, we can have good results.
    Thank you very much for this excellent post!

    1. That sounds pretty cool Daniella – like you’ve really managed to get a hold on the way you eat…for the better of course! I do agree that going into a health change when you are not ready is not exactly a good move.

      Cheers for leaving your comment! 🙂

  2. Hi Chris. I like the title – When is the best time to diet?
    And I was hoping to see that I don’t need to start right now changing my diet, but… looking at the most common personal motivations for starting up a weight loss program I see that they all apply to me.
    I understood that I need to balance the food I am preparing for my family so that all of us to be more healthy at the end of the day.
    Thank you for the post. I needed to see something like that.

  3. Reading your post has made me reflect on periods that I was able to lose weight and more importantly, to maintain that weight loss. This is a significant issue for me as I have been overweight the majority of my life. Without a plan or a diet as a conscious effort to lose weight, my biggest success have been when I am busy and happy. Today I have a major lung disease that makes my body burn through calories just trying to breath. I have lost 50 lbs due to my lungs. Medical reasons to lose weight are always scary. If we try to maintain a healthy weight in the first place, we are always better off medically. Thanks for the post.

  4. Very interesting information on dieting and when to do it. I thought about that question, and to me there is no good time LOL. Who likes to diet, right? But as you say, when your health is at risk, it’s time to start. I actually don’t mine dieting once I have started and am in the swing of it. It’s promising when you start seeing the weight come off. I think the hardest part is just getting started!

    1. Taking the first step is always the hardest – once you’ve committed and jumped in (with both feet) you’ll see a change in mindset – go for it!!! 🙂

  5. How ironic that I came across your site today, just at the end of last week I started getting worried about my belly that is protruding so much.

    Yes I try to exercise but am not always motivated so I end up skipping a day or two. I really have to start working at it to avoid getting diabetes, because I can see every day what it does and I know that sticking to that healthy diet and exercise plan takes commitment and discipline.

    Thank you for sharing this information, it is really helpful and very encouraging, it serves as a very good reminder.

    1. That sounds like a plan mate, but don’t worry about missing a day here and there! At the end of the day you don’t want to overdo it (especially with exercise). Build up the dedication and then start slowly – nobody said this was a race! 🙂

  6. Hey Chris,

    Great work. When is the best time. How does today sound haha! So many people I know let their body and health go and then one day they realize they are ill or overweight and then decide to do something. Often times it is way too late then – I have witnessed this happen to many of my friends (and even myself on occasion!).

    I agree with you that it takes a complete lifestyle change. You can’t be the same person and suddenly change. You have to change and become someone who is a healthy person and follows healthy habits.

    I think this is always going to be the hardest part of weight loss…but it is key!

    Everyone has different levels of dedication and willpower – it doesn’t make you a bad person if you can’t reach the lifestyle change…you just have to try harder than most!

    What would be your key method as to changing your lifestyle in this way? Have you ever had to make this sort of healthy lifestyle change and if so – how successful was it??

    Great post – I always love reading your work!


    1. Hi there Kevin,

      Becoming a healthy person who follows healthy habits is certainly a hard task and you are right – it’s a different mission for every individual.

      In life we all differ – some will take to this healthy change well whilst others will struggle. Unfortunately some people will always have to work harder than others!

      Have I been in this situation before?

      Sure I have – check out my About Me page!

      I was lucky in that I was single at the time…so I had no real distractions when I took on this healthy lifestyle change!

      My son lived with my ex and I only had one child at the time – this certainly helps!

      These days I also have a two year old on board (as well as my elder son) and it has become extremely hard to center on healthy living.

      We are all at different points in life – some points will actually hamper our lifestyle changes!

      Great to talk with you Kev – stay healthy! 🙂
