The tried-and-true habits that have helped you lose weight the right way.
I started taking SlimQuick because it promised me what I really needed in the afternoons...energy. I love it and I hope to be done taking it when I reach my goal of 130. 17 down, 28 more to go!
Alli is a supplement that helps eliminate a portion of fat you eat. Be ware, oily gas is 1 side effect uncontrolled urgency to go is too. This reminds me to eat less fatty foods so I don't have to worry about side effects. Love knowing fat is flushed away instead of staying in my body.
I eat a big or small breakfast based on how hungry I am in the morning, and I track it. Then, still in the morning, I enter what I'm planning to have for dinner, and then I enter an evening snack. Lunch is my "wiggle room." I can go big or small, depending on how many calories I have left.
This has helped me lose weight before- You know how you have all those clothes in different sizes? Just organize them largest to smallest, and as you get fit, you fit into the smaller sizes. If you don't, you wear the same stuff over n over!
I've recently been diagnosed with allergies to wheat, oats, soy, malt, barley and rye... I'm not saying go out and find yourself an allergy, but I can't help but think if I hadn't been diagnosed I'd still be in my rut. I'm eating so much better. Fresh fruits, vegis and lower fat meats...
WHY IS IT WHEN A PERSON GOES ON DIET,WHY IS IT THEY HAVE TO EAT 6 MEALS A DAY?
When ever I eat salad I ask for the dressing on the side. Then I dip my fork in the dressing and then take a bite of salad. When I am through I have used only a small fraction of the dressing, but I still get the dressing taste with every bite and I don't feel I have missed out on anything.
One of my take-along snacks in the car is Triscuit Reduced Fat Crackers=7 is 1 serving.To keep myself to that ONE SERVING,I count the crackers out and put THE BOX AWAY! I also do this at home--it helps me to be more accurate in my calorie-counting and not overindulge!
I sometimes have difficulty drinking 8 glasses per day and find if I make a large jug of unsweetened green tea and keep it in the fridge I am more apt to drink more, a dash of fresh lemon and I am set. Green tea is a great antioxident and some say it has weight loss properties. I find it is helping.
The best way to lose weight and stay on track is to plan as much as possible! Plan your food, plan your exercise, plan your rest days... its fine to adjust the plan as needed, but having it on paper helps you to stick with it!
