Work out patterns can be hard to jump into and create. Just be aware for the first 6 months you should be working out from 3-4 days for about 1-2 hours. After 6 months you can slow your workouts down by about 1 to 2 days depending on how successful it is going. However, consider working out 20- 30 more minutes each day you do workout if you decide to cut back on the days. This will increase your endurance and make up for what your body will be missing, and you wont even notice that extra couple minutes!
Working out is very hard to get into, you need the proper support and the drive to want to push yourself to extremes in which you have never reached before you. If you live with a couple people (your family) then ask them to get into a new diet pattern with you so you don't have unhealthy foods tempting you as you try to make a life change. Also, ask if they would like to join you in a late night run or walk after dinner. These little steps will affect you for the better and they will help you improve your weight. If you live alone then your already one step ahead because you do not have anyone else to affect what is in your fridge or cupboards. Ask a friend or your girlfriend or boyfriend to join the gym with you, or a co ed sports team so you can push each other to always do better. Having someone there supporting you in your challenge will always make things easier and will allow you to feel driven.
Alway's remember that working out is not easy and it is not supposed to be, so don't feel shot down when thing's get really hard that is how it is supposed to be. Work hard and you will see the results you want. The hardest thing about changing your lifestyle is changing the food you eat and the amount you eat. You cannot alter or give up on your diet because this becomes the most important thing and even a week of eating right can affect your weight by even a few pounds, it can eliminate any bloating you may have and it can alter the way you think. It is a healthy move worth it all even if you didn't want to lose weight. Eating healthy is always the right thing to do.
