When I started this blog I never thought I would be posting about weight loss, healthy eating or exercising. I mean come on those subject are kinda taboo to someone who is overweight. We talk about it all the time, but we never really do anything about it. We know we need to eat healthier, and we need to get moving to burn those calories but really what are we doing??? I have tried numerous diets, I have counted calories, counted points, measured my food, I have exercised 2 hours a day, I have joined clubs, read books and still have failed with my weight loss. A lot of us have the same struggle. And the worst is when someone we know starts losing weight because then we NEED to know what they are doing and hope/pray that it will work for us too, but surprise surprise it doesn’t!! Why????
Well, because we are all different!! And what works for you might not work for me.
My advise: Do what works for you!! And own it!!
1 pound of fat = 3500 calories
*So in theory if you reduced your calories by 500 each day you should lose a pound a week
Measuring your Food helps you to control the actual calorie intake.
*But what happens when you go out?? Do you bring the measuring cups with you??
30 minutes of activity a day helps you burn more calories
Here is some inspiration:
So why am I sharing all of this? Because for me I don’t want to be hiding anymore. I want you to know that I have decided to change my life and honesty is the best form of accountability. One way I can be accountable is to share with you my workouts and eating tips. Maybe some of it can help you and maybe none of it will work but it will be what I am doing and what I have my family doing.
I will be posting workouts, recipes, and helpful tips and hopefully encouragement to others in my Weight Loss Journal.
Chime in and tell what works for you!
Wishing you many Blessings
