Exercise Resolutions

Posted on January 14, 2016 by Deb Hart

When you are carrying extra weight, you expend extra energy to simply move throughout your day. As you lose weight after weight loss surgery, fewer calories are needed for movement. Think about it: if you’ve lost 40#, that’s the same as carrying a big bag of dog food or 5 gallons of water with you every step you take. If you’ve lost 80#, that’s equal to 2 bags of dog food or 10 gallons of water. In order to make up for this loss of energy expenditure, you need to intentionally move more.

January is an ideal time to strengthen your exercise resolve–whether you are just getting started, need to recommit or want to beef up your current exercise program. Exercise gives you more energy, better sleep, a happier outlook and boosted metabolism. It is a sound investment in your health and well-being. It takes sixty-six days to form a habit—start now and you’ll be going strong in March.
