DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

How To Achieve Your Ideal Weight

Achieving your ideal weight may sound like a pretty tall order, but if you work at it over time, you can do it. By reaching this goal you will improve your quality of life in the present and have extended benefits well into the future. Not to mention how much better you will look and feel every day in between. Don't tell yourself you can't do it, because it is possible!

Start With A Good Plan

Sit down and figure out what your ideal weight is. Depending on how far off you are now from that figure, you may have your work cut out for you. Most people give up before they even try because it all seems too overwhelming, but they forget how quickly time passes. Think about something that happened a year or so ago: doesn't it feel like it was just yesterday? Before you know it, you'll be halfway to your goal and so darn proud of yourself they'll be no stopping you!

Keep A Daily Journal

Medical experts and dietary specialists recommend a weight loss journal over all other tools, that's how effective they are. Get into the habit of writing down everything you eat, the exercise you got in that day and how what you do impacts the goal you're striving for. A journal will keep you in check with self-discipline and help you to maintain a clear and uninterrupted focus.

Understand What Motivates You Personally

Just like someone trying to quit smoking uses their children as daily motivation, you too need a dose of motivation every day. Think about the most important reasons for you to achieve your daily weight, and write them down. Pick the top five or so and then post the list somewhere you will see it all the time. Keeping up the motivation will get you through the rough times and help you to stay aligned with goals.

Clean Out Your Cupboards And Fridge

Before you fully commit yourself to the new weight loss lifestyle you're preparing, get rid of anything that will work against around the house. No midnight stashes, no favorite flavor of the month and nothing high in sugar, fat, sodium or calories. If you're like most people, the process of removing all of these items from your home will probably burn off three pounds in and of itself!

Change The Way You Shop For Groceries

Once you've cleared out the junk food from your immediate surroundings, it's time to rethink the way you fill up your shopping cart. Many consumers are easily led by the nose by advertisers, and they don't even know it. You must now rise above that. Prepare a healthy list of all the foods you need to prepare a week's worth of meals that will all work toward your goals. Do not deviate from the list, no matter how tempting the offers on your favorite decadent products may be. If you also shop for other people in your house, start buying them better foods, at least while you strive to get your body in better shape. They can only benefit from the positive changes anyway, and your goals are far too important to be constantly tempted.

Stop Eating Out At Restaurants

With the exception of very special occasions, don't go out to eat and fill up on fatty appetizers, high calorie mixed drinks and entrees oozing with cheese and grease. As mouth watering as it may be, the price you will pay is simply too great. Give yourself a good six months, depending on the total weight you need to lose, before putting yourself in the position to blow the whole plan. It's just not worth it.

Take The Highroad With Beverages

Specialty coffees not only take a huge chunk of your earnings every year, they also add a huge amount of fat and calories to your diet. Buy a travel mug, and make your own practical brew every morning. Soda is a constant thorn in the side for people trying to lose weight, even if it's so called “diet” or “sugar free”. The best thing you can do for yourself now is give it up completely. Otherwise, drink it in serious moderation. Enjoy more water, because it's the best thing for you and it will help you stave hunger. Green tea can aid your digestive system and metabolism, making it a great addition to your new lifestyle.

Adopt A Manageable And Likeable Workout Routine

Exercise is a very important part of your ability to reach your ideal weight, but it shouldn't be something you force on yourself. If you don't like it, you won't do it, especially over the long-term. Discover things you enjoy and incorporate them into everyday living. Walk more, swim, play tennis, hike, ride a bike or go out dancing. Whatever suits your fancy that burns calories. The key is to do it often enough that you're really making a difference with fat and calories. Every other day engage in something strenuous for at least half an hour. Try to get moderate exercise in each day, even if it's just vacuuming your whole house or raking the yard.

Lean On Healthy Snacks

The snacks you choose can either work with your new lifestyle or be very counterproductive. For example, snacking on raw vegetables will easily carry you over to regular mealtimes. They are healthy, don't contain many calories and help you to feel full for longer. Nuts in small amounts combined with low-fat yogurt can boost your metabolism, helping your weight loss efforts along while keeping you satisfied between meals. These little decisions you make throughout the day will have a big impact on your actual weight loss, so have the self-discipline to do the right thing.

Most people are not maintaining their ideal weight, and this works against them in so many ways. You don't have to surrender to the law of averages however; you can be different. Make the plan, commit to it and realize that time won't drag on forever as you reach your goal. Some day in the not so distant future, you will be where you want to be with your weight, but you have to start now.
