So what has been weighing you down?
Whether it be greasy fatty food- or stress. A lot can hold us back from having our ultimate body. Meaning the one were supposed to have. I don't mean being a rail- that might not be your body frame. First off we need to realize we all have different body types, and we need to embrace our own. Focus on the things we do have. And realize we are very special in our very own way!
No matter how old or young you are. Do not let that be an excuse. As long as you have an open mind and wiliness to change, then you can lose weight. I think one of the most important things to realize is that you have to BELIEVE. I'm serious. If you don't believe in the fact that it is possible for you to transform. Then no matter what you do- you will not ever change. Because you don't believe you can. That means give up the negatives. You're wrong if you think you can't change. WAY wrong. I believe in you. I know you can. But you really got to change the way your living.
Refuse to settle. Refuse to accept this. and change! Things can be different. No matter where you are in your life- you can change the way your living.
-And by the way let me add here that if you are interested in losing weight, your not alone, this information I am giving to you- I am also taking! I want to lose a few pounds, but in no way do I want to count calories, or go low carb everything, etc. No diets here. This is a way of changing your thinking and lose weight in the process.
I'm not sure of anyones situations. But let me point out some things -
*Don't eat when your not hungry.
I don't care if it is dinner time. Are you actually hungry? If your not- then don't eat. It's ok! Only eat when you are actually hungry and stop eating when you truly are full! I know sometimes when were eating something, ooooh it's sooooo good. Yes. But maybe half way through- your good. You don't need anymore. But you still keep eating it cause it tastes so good. Box it up! It's not going anywhere! That could be your dinner for later if you kept it safe and sound in the fridge! Don't over indulge. Eat when your hungry, stop when your full.
*Eat HEALTHY FOODS!
And nothing else. If that sounds like a death sentence to you- then I'm sorry. But look here, eating potato chips will get you NOWHERE! They are not good for you or your weight loss. Because certain foods keep you hungrier. Their empty calories. Their stupid! They do not deserve to be in your beautiful clean body. You won't be as puffy. You'll be clear and feel focused and good. I love food- I make super delicious foods, and it's all 'healthy'. So seriously- it's not a big deal. Just go back to the basics. Fruits, Veggies, Nuts, Legumes, & Lean protein (if you eat meat.) And sometimes red wine & or dark chocolate, over 70% cacao. (Beer is ok as well in moderation.) Just think naturally.
If your vegan or vegetarian, eating all those fake soy products are not good for your body either. It's good to eat 'clean' foods to remove the toxins from our bodies and keep it clean. Yes, I do eat tofu and gardein products sometimes but it's a treat, and not that often. I also don't eat fake vegan cheeze much. I'd much rather make my cashew cheeze from scratch. Eat as less oils as you can as well. And use as little sugar as possible! Keep it clean!
No matter what it is you do, get moving. I walk for 3 miles about every day. And it's just walking! I am not an exercise feen. I don't care to have ripped arms. I just know how important it is for our hearts and our bodies to stay active. For energy and mood as well. It helps I promise. I notice if I haven't worked out for a week, I am more negative and not energetic. Thats not ok! Everything changes when I exercise! Much more happier :)
So now that I've shared my most important things to stick with through out you day. let the questions and comments begin! I'd love for us to keep us all accountable. If you'd like to comment and let me know through facebook or here, when you've exercised- what healthy recipe you made, etc. Please do! I'd love to hear it! If you have any questions or concerns please ask me! Will be posting a weekly weigh in every wednesday! So next wed. be ready to weigh in on how your past week went! I wish you the best! Get moving!
