When we talk about an exercise routine we tend to focus on the word 'exercise' rather than on 'routine', but regularity and constancy are the key elements to keeping fit, so make sure your exercise routine is part of your daily habits and vice versa: don't forget that physical chores such as housework or dog-walking, and leisure activities such as dancing or walking can all contribute to your keep fit routine.
It’s also important to focus on health because it's not all about losing weight but about being healthy. You may find that it’s easier to lose weight if the health benefits that go with it are your priority. On the other hand, don't aspire to quick changes. Those sudden losses of weight that occur when you skip meals aren't usually relevant. You'll do much better to adopt new and healthy habits, both in terms of diet and keep fit. Just like the tortoise and the hare, you'll find that “slow and steady wins the race.”
Finally, let other people help you. Although you are the one who has to keep to the routine, it'll be easier if you let your friends and family know what you're doing. That way, they'll be more likely to encourage you. If you've got a birthday or anniversary coming up, make it clear that flowers, a book or a spa gift voucher is a better present than chocolates.
