A message left from a member in our recent survey....

"One day last year, abortion had come up that day, triggering all those memories once again. I, for some reason, went on the computer, typed in abortion help, and I clicked on Safe Haven. At the time I wasn't sure exactly what I was looking for, and ended up finding more help than I ever, ever expected to receive."

 If you are here for the first time and unsure what it is you are looking for, we pray you will find this community a safe place to explore your past memories, feelings and many times hidden pain.  We, the staff and volunteers at SafeHaven want you to know a little about us in the hopes that you will then begin to feel more "at home" here.  Our deepest desire is for the site to be-well-just what the name implies: a safe haven: a safe place for you to come and share your abortion experiences and pain; to comfort and encourage one another; to seek help and guidance and healing alongside others just like you who have bee hurt by abortion.  We are NOT here to judge nor condemn you.  Most of us have been where you are and have begun to know peace and joy again.  Our hope is that you will find those things again too.  Please take a moment to read about our staff on our designated Staff Page.  Each of us is here because we care about you.

Article #1. Tips to Stressful Women Who Want to Lose Weight Quick

 
 

how_a_woman_loses_leg_fat_showing_legsWhat are the best strategies on how to lose weight quick? There are no short-cuts, but it is completely possible for anyone to achieve those “runway” legs that they have been dreaming of. You can have them, too. Remember, you only achieve excellence by doing good things habitually. Do them consistently.

You’d realize one day that getting your body into shape and maintaining for them that perfect shape is possible.

Exercise

There are exercises designed just for the legs. You can try doing plies, walking lunges and calf raises. Sign up for a gym membership and then register in special classes that teach members on how to tone muscles.

Zumba, cycling and step classes are some of the most beneficial for the legs. Do a little bit of resistance training. Even women are advised to build muscle. Higher muscle mass translates to faster burning of fat because muscles help in fat-burning even if the person is resting. Do strength training, but focus on resistance training as well.

By the way, the best program we have found to reduce cellulite and body fat in your legs, thighs and in your whole body has been venus factor system. If you do not know what these techniques are all about, you can head over to this site that contains one of the best venus factor system reviews that we have read so far.

Reduce Your Stress Level

how-to-lose-thigh-fat-and-orange-skin-and-dimplesIt may surprise you, but one of the secrets on how to lose leg fat is to keep away from stress causing people and situations. Stress triggers the release of cortisol, a hormone that boosts appetite and facilitates storing of fat.

Symptoms of stress are oversleeping, chronic fatigue and restlessness. If you are showing any of these symptoms, stress is probably the main reason why you are having weight problems. Fight it by doing the following:

  • Do the things you love doing and choose the right company. In particular, avoid talking to people who always bring bad news or do things that put your spirit down. If you can, limit the people you spend time with. Quietness and calm are very important for you.
  • Consider doing yoga and meditation exercises. Instead of wasting your time with people that put trash in your head, keep your mind full of peace. But if you have no time or resources for these things, a good substitute would be to take a regular walk in the park or listening to music alone in your room. Choose hymns and inspirational music for this purpose.
  • Get just the right amount of sleep and go to bed at the right time. If you are lacking sleep or accustomed to sleeping late, you must help your body achieve its original or natural rhythm. You can try repeatedly doing an activity before going to bed. Eventually, your body will pick that activity as a sign to prepare itself for bed. If you can sleep regularly for at least 6 hours a night, you will feel less stressful during the day.

Reduce Your Calorie Intake Calorie-Intake-pyramid

Another, effective method on how to lose leg fat is to reduce the amount of calories you consume. Gradually reduce your caloric intake up to a point when your body can survive a day without the usual daily amount of supply.

Some people skip or eat small meals during the morning and drink water instead – and it is working for them. They get their first meal during lunch. Try doing the same for one or two days. On the third day, you might not crave for a breakfast meal anymore.

In the long run, you may be able to survive eating meals that are smaller than the usual. This is in addition to not having any solid food at all during breakfast. Controlling the amount of caloric intake may also help you in choosing the right things to eat. Since the incidence of feeling hungry will be less than the usual, you will be picky in choosing the food items that will be thrown into the grocery cart. You will be in control.

Consequently, you will pick more fruits and vegetables and be more conscious about product labels.

Walk Everywhere

This is one of the secrets on how to shed weight fast is to forgo the use of your car as much as you can and just walk wherever you need to go.

Even if you are in a hurry for some office meetings, walk. Health experts are saying that a one-minute walk is still a one-minute walk. If there are no sidewalks in your neighborhood, do these alternative strategies:

  • You have chosen a power mower over one that is designed to be pushed? It’s time to make the switch. The leaf-blower should be discarded as well.
  • How about doing walking meetings instead of the usual boardroom type? With the walking type, you will be doing not only yourself a favor. Everyone gets to exercise and breathe fresh air.
  • Are you using public transportation to get to the office? Take it as a good opportunity as well. Get off at the station which is farther away from job site.
  • When shopping, choose the mall with the most number of floors. If you have time to spare, use the stairs and set foot on all the levels.
  • Charity walks are also some of the best opportunities.

Customize Your Own Strategies

What you have read here is just a general guide. You have to be inventive. You have to create your own strategies because you are different from the person next to you. You alone know the kind of fixing your legs exactly need, so come up with your own unique strategies on diet plans for women.
