The tried-and-true habits that have helped you lose weight the right way.
I choose foods high in fiber, especially for breakfast and snacks, because those are the foods that will keep you feeling fuller longer. Also, I drink LOTS of water. It keeps you full, feeling refreshed, and it's great for your skin and digestion!
I didn't put the extra weight on overnight so I can't take it off overnight either. Rather than put a number in my head (the scale will say 5 lbs less this week), I just look for the scale to either stay the same or go down ANY amount.
When trying to lose weight, take the 4 rules into consideration: quality, quanity, frequency, activity. Eat good healthy food choices every 2-3 hours in reasonable quantities, and get active for at least 30 minutes a day.
It is so important for a successful weight loss that you are aware of what you are eating. I always log what I have eaten, everything you put in your mouth needs to be logged. At the end of the week go over & read what you consumed. It helps keep you more accountable. If u bite it, write it!
Don't be afraid to try something new. Sometimes it takes more then one try before you like it. The first time I tried cilantro I hated it...now I love it.
I have lost in the last week a ton of weight my pants are falling down all because I really started walking.
I've been doing the Ultimate Body Challenge for 10 years now and it just proves that you have to enjoy what you do to stay consistent in order to keep the weight off. The kickboxing class flies by because the music keeps you pumped and getting to punch a bag is very stress-relieving!
i might've missed the posting for this one, but here goes anyways. When we go out to eat, I generally as for a To - go container so that I can immediately save the other 1/2 of my meal for later instead of all at once.
I strive to be consistant with getting in at least 96oz of water on a daily basis; I use a 32oz bottle, and the first one I've made a personal requirement to drink it an hour before I leave to workout, then after coming home I'll startt on my second one, and by evening I've had 2 of those!
When I first moved in with my fiancÚ, a friend gave us silverware for a housewarming gift. We never used them because they were smaller than regular utensils, but I use them all the time now. They make me feel like I'm taking big bites.
