If you're anything like me, then you're not afraid of a little hard work. But that doesn't mean that you want to be doing ALL hard work, all the time, in order to drop some pounds (or, really, not gain any pounds during the busy and stressful holiday season). According to Women's Health, there are actually some great ways to actually lose weight even if you are someone who considers themselves lazy but you're not really ashamed of that fact. After all, just because something takes hard work doesn't mean that we also don't want the occasional shortcut, amirite?
For me, weight loss isn't just about willpower. I'm really glad for that, too, since I often lose my willpower the later it gets in the day.

That's how I fell in love with broccoli and with reaching for a bottle of water instead of a bottle of soda. It's a process, but I try to do as many easy weight loss tips and tricks as I can. Sleeping in more? Done! Buying easy-to-eat snacks? Done! Wearing more lipstick and giving myself a mani? Done and done! Wherever you are in your weight loss, you'll be able to learn a thing or two from our list of 15 best ways to lose weight even if you're lazy (and proud of it).
