Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Perhaps you are trying to lose weight. The holidays are coming, and you want to look good when you see your family and when you go to holiday parties. You are hoping that the weight will come off. That way, you will feel better, look better, and not have to deal wiht all of the stares and whispers. Losing weight can often be a major challenge for many people, however. How can you accomplish your goal?

One way is to avoid eating while you cook. You are a loving, caring family member, and you want to cook tasty meals for your family. In order to make sure that the food you cook tastes good, you taste it while you are cooking. Tasting can pack on the pounds, however. Recipes have already been tested, and they should be good. Follow a recipe, and have faith in yourself. Your family will love what you are cooking.

Second, do not eat while cleaning up the kitchen. Once you leave the table, you should be finished eating. Instead of eating, get busy cleaning up. The sooner the kitchen is clean, the sooner you can relax. Perhaps your favorite sitcom is coming on soon. You want to be able to relax and enjoy it. You do not want to be busy cleaning the kitchen and wind up missing it.

Third, cook healthy meals. Consider baking, broiling, or sauteing, rather than frying. Healthy meals will be better for you, and they will help you lose weight.

Fourth, whenever you have a reason to go into the kitchen, drink a glass of water. Perhaps you have a land-line phone, for example, and the phone is in the kitchen. If someone calls, take the call, and then drink some water.

Fifth, after the kitchen is clean, it is closed. Go into the living room, and relax. Spend time with your family, watch television, read, or work online. By not returning to the kitchen, you will be better able to lose weight, and you will also avoid more dirty dishes. If you had more dirty dishes, you would lose sleep. Stay out of the kitchen, avoid more dirty dishes, and sleep well.

Sixth, if you are studying, consider studying in a room other than the kitchen. If you are studying late at night and you eat while you study, you will have no way to work off what you have eaten, because you will likely be going to bed shortly. The food will then turn to fat. If your house has an office, study there. You can also study in your bedroom. Just be sure that you do not stretch out on your bed to study. If yo do, you will probably fall asleep. Sit at your desk, if you have one, or sit on the floor.

Losing weight is not as hard as it seems. Give it a shot. Very soon, you may discover that you have achieved your goal.
