A lot of people are stuck in the mindset, that it costs a lot of money to lose weight. They think that you have to spend a lot of money to buy special foods, pay for a gym membership, sign up for costly diet programs, and the list goes on and on. Honestly, there are a lot of programs online that are FREE. You do not need to spend a lot of money to lose weight! Here is a list of some of the Free resources that I have found to help to jump-start your weight-loss.
*Keeping a food journal, to keep track of what your eating has been proven to plays a more important role in successful weight loss than your age, how much you exercise, or even how much you need to lose. It enables you to identify the patterns that get you in trouble. For instance, are you waiting too long between meals and then overeating? Bad patterns can be changed, but you have to see them first! You could just use a simple notebook and pen, or use an online food diary on the web.
*My Fitness Pal -It's Free to sign up. Easy to use food diary online, they even offer FREE mobile apps for iPhone, and Andriod, making it easier even when you are on the go.
