I started out about three or four months ago, after stepping on the scale at the doctor’s office. He did not really have to tell me that I needed to lose some weight, but he did anyway. I started out slowly the very next day. At first I would just walk around the block a couple of times before I went to work and I would do little stuff, like parking at the far corner of the lot at work and taking the stairs. Pretty soon I had to find the best deodorant for men who really sweat a lot, at least when I was doing the thing with the stairs. That is a really great way to burn a few extra calories, but if you are in the middle of the work day you do not need to smell like you have been working out. At any rate I had to try a few different types of deodorant and do some research. In fact none of them really work if you really exert yourself, at least not if you sweat the way that I do.
In fact the only way to really lose weight in my opinion, is to fully commit to both parts of the equation. To put it simply you have to burn off more than you put in. You have to restrict how many calories you consume in your meals and snacks, then you have to exercise enough to really burn off the calories, I started out just walking, but enough to burn calories. The reason for that is that you need to get in better shape before you go to a really exhausting regimen. If you do not begin cautiously you end up pulling something and that does you no good at all. Then I started to do really burn calories when I was ready.
