Losing weight is no easy task, especially since you probably have an insanely busy schedule between classes, your internship, a work-study job, extra-curricular activities and a social life. And, of course, don’t forget about making time to do all of that homework and study for your Anthropology test next week. On the list of priorities, health can sometimes come in dead last.
Whether you’re looking to lose a lot of weight in the hopes of creating a consistent, healthy routine or just want to tone up for spring break, dropping a few pounds doesn’t have to be crazy difficult. You don’t have to eat unflavored oatmeal for breakfast every day and you don’t have to spend hours in the gym. You also shouldn’t have to feel body-shamed, but instead should seek health and confidence on your own terms.
The key to losing weight effectively is making simple changes in your lifestyle without having to sacrifice your own sense of health and happiness. It shouldn’t feel like you’re on a diet, but rather you’re revising your habits to be a little healthier.
