Fall ExerciseIf you are thinking about starting a weight loss program, you have chosen the perfect season. As your routine changes with the school year and the weather begins to turn, it is easier than ever to fit in weight loss as a true lifestyle change. Here’s how you are setting yourself up for success by starting your weight loss plan this fall:

The Kids Are Headed Back to School
If you are the parent of a school-aged child, autumn is the perfect time to commit to your health. The kids are just back into school and extracurricular activities, which means that you probably have a little more time on your hands. When you start your weight loss journey around the same time that school starts, it is much easier to create a routine of exercising and better eating. Even if you work all day you can still make small changes like packing a yourself a healthy lunch as you fix the kids’ lunchboxes.

Perfect Temperature for Outdoor Activities
It seems like summer should be the perfect time to go outdoors to exercise, but in reality it often becomes too hot in July and early August to exercise safely. As September approaches the temperature becomes more moderate, and makes it much easier and more enjoyable to get outdoors to work out. Activities like walking, running, hiking, and golfing are great to pick up in the autumn as the heat subsides, and adding aerobic exercise into your routine will help you lose weight and increase your stamina.

Prepare You For the Holidays
Some people see it as pointless to start a weight loss program in the fall with the upcoming holidays. To the contrary, we believe it is a great time for just that reason! When you begin a weight loss program you learn about nutrition, healthy choices and implementing strategies to manage your portions and calories. You become more focused and aware of what you consume. When you are more focused on what you are eating and already have good weight loss momentum to protect, you are more likely to limit yourself to your favorite indulgences, enjoy them more, and skip out on empty calories that you know you won’t enjoy quite as much.

If you have been thinking about starting a weight loss program, fall is the perfect time! By incorporating better nutrition and exercise into your daily routine you are creating new healthy habits which will allow you to shed unwanted pounds and keep them off.
