Weekend Face Lift Fast And Quick

Many people aren’t quite at the point where they need (or want to spend the money on) a full face lift. While these procedures are not a substitute for a full lift, they can provide a nice tightening and overall smoother, firmer look. For these reasons a “weekend face lift” may be the perfect option.

Since it only takes a few days to recover from this limited procedure you don’t have to take off work or miss out on any of your daily routines, hence the nick name.

It is less costly than than a full face lift and won’t do quite as much for you, but it is is also cheaper, a shorter recovery time and it allows you to still firm up the jaw line, the neck and the cheeks and lose some of that “jowly” look.

This mini face lift procedure works only on small specific areas of the face and neck, like the areas around the nose and the neck. The procedure is done by making small incisions and using endoscopic technology to firm up and reposition facial tissue. The end result is a much more taut, tighter look.

The biggest limitation to this type of procedure is that the forehead and brow line aren’t addressed at all. It only targets the lower part of the face, and for many people,that is all they need. This is often one of the first types of cosmetic surgeries people will have so they may not need as much work on other areas of their face.

This procedure is minimally invasive, much less invasive than the full face lift. Since only a small incision needs to be made, it not only heals more quickly, it is also much less expensive.

Before you go to have your “weekend face lift” done, make sure you spend some time to find a qualified surgeon. Even though this is a minimally invasive procedure, it still carries some risk (as all such types of procedures do) so you want to find the most qualified and competent surgeon you can.

Check out the credentials of any doctor you are considering as well as asking for referrals. Make sure you fully understand all possible side effects and ask for realistic idea of what you can expect, as well as what you won’t get.

Finding out just how much it will cost is very important too. Make sure you know exactly what will be covered as well as what won’t be. For example, are all medications covered or will there be an extra charge? What about follow up visits?

In most cases everything will be covered in the price, but it’s always best to ask so you know for sure, never assume.

If you don’t think you need, or just can’t afford, a full face lift, a weekend face lift may be a better alternative. You can get much improved muscle tone and firmness in your lower face and neck area. This may be a good first step before you go under the knife for a more comprehensive procedure.

Walking For Weight Loss – Make It Easy

Please don’t allow yourself to be confused by all the wild claims that you see when it comes to losing weight. While some of the exercise equipment, supplements and eating plans may be good for you and might help, the truth is that you really don’t need any of it. All you need to do is eat better and move more, it’s not rocket science. When just starting out, walking for weight loss is a wonderful way to get started.

Before you start any type of exercise program make sure you talk to your doctor first. This step becomes even more crucial if you are already overweight, have underlying medical issues or just haven’t done much physically for a long time. Once your doctor gives you the thumbs up, get busy.

Walking is a great place to start for anyone at any fitness level, particularly those that are out of shape. It’s easy on your joints and it will allow you to build up to a much higher level.

You don’t need any special equipment, training or even a gym membership (you will need a good pair of shoes though so you don’t hurt your feet).

You can go for a walk all year, in cold weather climates many indoor shopping malls open early so walkers can come in and do some laps, this adds a social aspect to your daily walk too which means it starts to be fun and you will be much more likely to stay with it.

You can take your dog for a walk, you can go for a walk with your kids or grandkids, you can invite a friend to join you. There are a lot of things you can do to make your walks more fun and inviting.

As your fitness level improves you can increase the intensity of your walks by increasing the distance you walk or stepping up your pace. You can even add hand or ankle weights to increase the intensity of your walk.

If you really want a challenge find some hilly terrain to walk on, walking up hills will really get your blood pumping!

With so many options and so many ways to make your walking more fun and get more benefit from the time you walk, it just makes sense to include walking into your overall fitness plan.

Of course, your exercise routine is only part of the whole picture, the things you put in your body will play a huge role in your overall weight loss success. Not only what you put in your body but how much you put in your body.

Find someone who can help you figure out a healthy, well balanced food plan if possible. If you don’t have anyone who can help, go to your local library or online to find some cookbooks. There are hundreds of cookbooks that will provide you with heart healthy, low cholesterol, low carbohydrate recipes. Just find one that has recipes that are balanced, look good and that you think you will enjoy preparing.

Walking for weight loss is a great way to get started and with the many ways you can intensify your walking workout, you don’t have to stop when you are in better shape.

The Key To Weight Loss – Be Prepared

Let’s face it, going on a diet isn’t anybody’s idea of having a good time. At least not for the countless number pf people who have been on and off many diets. Now, they all have something in common, and that’s good intentions. Everybody that starts a diet has high hopes, and thinks they’ll be able to stick to it…this time. But then something happens and they slip a little. Then they feel bad and that leads to more slipping, and pretty soon you’re completely off your weight loss program and may even weigh more than when you started.

If this sounds like you, then you are not alone. In fact, it’s safe to say that more people go off their diets than stick to them. However, the good news is that there are some things you can do to greatly increase your chances of sticking to your diet, for good.

It’s all about preparation, and that comes in two forms.

1. Be prepared. You are going to be tempted to eat “forbidden” foods any time you change your diet. Therefore, you have to either not have any forbidden foods or you have to avoid them.

It all starts with which weight loss plan you choose. The best thing you can do is to select one that allows you to eat as many different foods as possible. This way you won’t be tempted to splurge, as the splurges will be built in. One of the most popular diets says you have to basically eliminate carbohydrates from your diet. Sure, it may be effective, but it’s next to impossible to stick to. Think about it, it’s not asking you to give up one or two foods, it’s asking you to not eat an entire group of foods! That’s almost begging for the diet to fail.

Of course we all have some foods that we just can’t seem to get enough of; foods that we feel addicted to. Maybe you can’t limit yourself to only one or two chocolate chip cookies, or maybe you always eat at least half a bag of potato chips. Whatever the case, you know yourself best, so your best line of defense is to not have those particular foods in the house.

2. Prepared foods. If you are used to eating fast food, or ready-made foods from the supermarket, then switching over to eating healthier can be a real chore. Chances are you will be eating more fruits and veggies, whole grains and lean protein. This usually means cooking from scratch. But it doesn’t have to be inconvenient. You can buy pre-cut frozen fruits and vegetables, making preparation just as easy as any convenience food. Food makers are also getting wise to the idea that people are concerned about their health. It used to be the only frozen dinners you could get were high-fat, calorie-laden fare such as meat loaf or fried chicken; and they didn’t taste all that great either. Times have changed. Now you can get low-calorie frozen meals that not only help you to lose weight, but taste great, too.

Stop Pigging Out When Eating Out

It used to be that almost all meals were eaten at home. The only exceptions were if you happened to travel for business, were a truck driver, or happened to be on vacation. People simply cooked and ate at home. But over the years that has changed, and now it is estimated that people in the United States may eat more than half of all their meals outside the home. One of the big problems with this is that you don’t have control over what goes into the food you’re eating. This adds up to big trouble if you’re trying to lose weight.

However, there are some things you can do to eat healthier when eating out. Here are some tips to help you eat better, and keep your weight under control at the same time.

Skip the bread and butter. Sure, it’s nice to have something to nibble on while waiting for your food to arrive, but a slice of bread, with butter can add up to 300 calories. Have two slices and you’re already up to 600 calories, and none of your food is even at the table yet.

Choose your appetizers wisely. It’s a good idea to get an appetizer because it will keep you from overeating when the main dish arrives. Don’t order anything deep fried or that’s has cheese on it. Anything made with fresh vegetables is a good choice, as is a clear soup or seafood cocktail.

If you get a salad, have them put the dressing on the side. Otherwise there is a good chance the kitchen will pour too much dressing on the salad, and that adds up. You control how much you add when you have it on the side. (This goes for all sauces whenever possible)

Generally speaking, chicken and fish are better choices than pork and beef. However, you also have to pay attention to how it’s prepared. Fried chicken and fish, covered with cheese or a heavy sauce will have more calories than a lean cut of beef that is prepared the right way. Better methods of preparation include roasted, baked or grilled.

Share the entree. One thing most restaurants are known for are their large portion sizes, and they keep getting bigger. So, see if you can split the entree with someone at your table (some restaurants will charge a nominal fee for this, but it’s worth it). If no one wants to share, then eat half and take the other half home. You can always ask for a container before you start eating to make sure you’re not tempted to eat everything on your plate.

Fruit for dessert. If you still have room for dessert, then opt for one that contains fresh fruit. Remember, you can always split a dessert, too.

The main thing to keep in mind is that you don’t have to put your diet on hold just because you’re eating out. Learning to make better choices is all it takes to dine out without having to worry about an expanding waistline.
