Summer is the season for skin and if you are carrying around extra pounds, you may not be willing to enjoy the traditional sunny days. Everyone is always looking for a way to weigh loss, so they can be the one sporting the hot dress or bikini top at summer parties. Maybe, you feel like you have tried everything and you just are not seeing the results you want to see. It takes time but by following these 10 easy ways to slim down, you will be enjoying summer parties like never before.
Go For A Run Around the Block
You can run in pants if you want to, just run. Doctors and physical trainers alike say a cardio workout goes a long way when you are trying to lose weight. Increasing your heart rate allows you to shed those pounds faster because you are burning off more calories.
Before you try any cardio exercise, you may want to give your doctor a quick call just to make sure there are no concerns. Remember, safety first.
Drink Water With Meals
Drinking water with meals not only helps you stay hydrated, but also makes you eat less. This does not mean you should substitute liquids for solid foods. It is just one way to “trick” the stomach into thinking you are full. Additionally, hunger and thirst have the same symptoms, so while you may be thinking you are thirsty, you could actually just be dehydrated.
Shake Your Tailfeather
A fun way to slim down is to go dancing. You will be surprised how much sweat you can detox from your system on a dance floor. It is good to move your body to a beat. Going dancing is a good way to increase your heart rate and burn more calories.
Have a Good Breakfast
Starting the day off with a good breakfast can save you from hunger pains during the day. Breakfast lingers with us and makes sure our bodies receive the necessary nutrients to survive the work day or any day.
Bring Your Lunch
You can control what you eat, so bring your own lunch to work. This will save you money and fat cells. Maybe, take a walk around the parking lot afterward. You could use the saved money for a vacation to show off your brand new bikini or to join a gym, which can also lead to a bikini showoff.
Twist with Weights
The simple movement of swaying side to side really opens up the torso and abdomen. Men and women can buy small hand weights that weigh anywhere from one to five pounds and hold them while they stretch. This provides a little more resistance as the body builds muscles.
Don’t Wear Horizontal Stripes
The clothes you wear can slim you down or plump you up. The key is to wear flattering clothing, so you may want to avoid the horizontal stripes or any other pattern that draws bad attention to your curves. Don’t be afraid to strut your stuff, just make sure what you wear looks good. Black is a good color, but don’t be afraid to go bold with other colors.
Elongate Your Legs
Making your legs look longer is a good way to appear slim. Heels and high waisted pants can do the trick, but so can an A-line skirt. This goes back to knowing how to wear an outfit. Don’t slouch, walk tall and people will think you are skinnier than you are in real. You’re working out, so you’ll get to where you don’t need these tricks.
Get Some Sun
For some reason, getting a tan makes people look slimmer. A little color on your arms and face and all of a sudden it looks like you've lost 10 pounds. I think it’s because people look athletic or like they just came back from the ocean, either way people are going to dig your new pigmentation.
Never underestimate the power of positive thinking. When you are trying to slim down for summer parties, you can’t let your weight hold you back.
Use these tips above, especially the ones that say workout and you will not only feel a difference, but you will see one, too.
