1. Enjoy a night out and still lose weight

Nights out and Drinks

Losing weight does not have to mean following a plan full of rules and restrictions, nights out and more specifically, eating out, can still be fun and enjoyable. Just remember a couple of key tips.

Firstly, do not arrive at the restaurant starving hungry!
Starving yourself before a meal means you'll eat more and SPEND MORE! Eating a light snack, such as a healthy soup, before your meal helps you to feel fuller for longer and will stop you ordering a larger main meal.

Also remember, you may not be the only person looking to cut back, maybe there’s a friend who would be happy to go halves on a meal with you?

Finally, eating out is a treat but it doesn't mean you can't enjoy healthy home-cooking! WeightWatchers offers a great selection of delicious recipes which will enable you to create a kitchen masterpiece of your own, maybe even better than that you would find in a restaurant!


2. Change your habits

Healthy Eating Habits

Humans are creatures of habit and very often this is how we find ourselves piling on the pounds.

Are you guilty of checking the fridge every time you walk past, eating portions that are far too large or maybe you just eat when bored? If this sounds all too familiar, don't worry as these habits can be easily broken.

Why not try placing a motivational picture on your fridge door to deter you from constantly snacking.

Motivational Fridge Post it

Planning weekly meals not only helps with portion control but will also be a positive change on your finances. Doing a big weekly shop will ensure you have everything in the cupboard that you will need for the week, cutting down on those convenience store breaks where a chocolate bar is all too tempting!

Finally, how about taking up an activity whilst watching TV such as knitting or maybe even doing the ironing. You will find that being pre-occupied with a task will dramatically reduce absent-minded snacking.


3. Get more active

Perhaps this means that 2014 will be the year that you start up a new gym membership, or perhaps it simply means sitting down less; either way getting active is essential to a healthy lifestyle.

Staying interested is key to sticking to your active lifestyle; it's pretty easy to go for a light jog on a sunny day or to the gym when all your friends are going but can you stick to it when it's raining cat's and dogs?

One key to remaining interested in your fitness is to have a variety of activities available to you, this means that despite the weather being bad, the workout can continue.

Gyms are now offering an increasingly wide range of classes to suit people of varying ages and with varying objectives. Get involved with courses from Belly Dancing to Kick Boxing!

Why not join a club or start something for a cause or charity? Both of these options include a certain level of commitment, there'll be times when staying fit isn't your highest priority; so the feeling of letting someone down will keep you motivated when running doesn't seem the most important thing in the world!

Here's one we saw from Weight Watchers...

Keeping fit with running

There are also small changes that you can make in your everyday life which will mean you soon begin to see a difference. Taking the stairs rather than the lift, or walking rather than driving are great examples. Also, why not use the advert breaks to complete a small set of squats or sit-ups?


4. Follow a healthy eating plan

Healthy Food Recipes

Remember to follow a plan that is not too restrictive, Weight Watchers is designed to keep you in control of what and when you eat, giving you the freedom to eat and drink in a way that suits your lifestyle.

A great benefit of the Weight Watchers program is the advice available in terms of how to be more considered in your food choices with hundreds of inspiring recipes and meal planners available.


5. Be patient

One final tip, be patient! Remember to set yourself realistic targets over a sensible time scale and with motivation and commitment we are positive you will see some great results!
