Losing weight is not complicated. Exercise for weight loss is not complicated. It is definitely not easy, but it is not complicated either. You do not have to exercise any specific amount of time or in any particular way to lose weight. All you need to do is this: Move.

Apart from changing our eating habits and caloric intake, there is no way to lose weight while standing still or sitting down. The key is to move. Moving gives us energy, boosts our mood and burns calories. It truly does not matter if you are running, walking, dancing, jumping, skipping, biking, hiking, or swimming: All of these things will burn calories and help you lose weight.

Forget the arbitrary plan you created or were given about how much you have to do to see results. Just get up and move. The more you move, the more you will want to move, the better you will feel, and the trend will continue to gain momentum. If you currently live a predominantly sedentary lifestyle, you can start by getting up and walking around the house more, then walking around the block, then walking around the neighborhood. Just keep adding movement little by little and watch what happens. Try it and then come back and comment about it. You will be amazed by your power and how good you will feel!

Wishing all of us to be on the move,

Nikola Rosa
