The tried-and-true habits that have helped you lose weight the right way.
I have sabotaged my weight loss plans by trying to eat things I didn't like to cut calories. My life changed when I decided that I would only eat what I like and keep within my ranges. You can maintain your plan if you like doing it!!
Keep on keepin on. Be a better you.
Always keep an extra pedometer on hand. They have a way of getting lost, broken, or simply escaping.
I allow myself one 'treat' day where I give in to satisfy my cravings and eat whatever I feel. After this day I am back on track for the rest of the week. This is to relieve the deprivation that usually comes with dieting.
I include protein in every meal..
BUT THE MORNINGS.. HIGH PROTEIN
When I was using my Bodybugg, I found that I often burned more calories doing things like shopping, cleaning, running errands etc. than I did spending the whole day being sedentary at work and then hitting the gym for an hour.
DO NOT go food shopping on an empty stomach! This way, you will be less apt to grab the unhealthy stuff that you do not need.
Whether you weigh yourself daily, or weekly, it is important to pick the same time of the day each time you're on the scale. That way you are more accurately able to see your results (or lack of them) over time.
Don't do any other activity while you're eating. Don't watch TV. Don't read a book. Do talk to who ever is with you. Try to focus on what you're eating. Not look up from TV or book in 10 minutes and think-what did I just eat?
No matter how many times you've tried and failed in the past, never give up! With the help and education available at SP, if we follow the program, we all can be successful. It's been such a struggle for me, but I am absolutely determined to finally conquer this battle. We can do it!
