Let’s talk weight loss.
I have dwelled far too much on the fact that I was once labelled as obese. I will not label myself as an ex-fat girl, because that gives me a reason to settle. That gives me a reason to say “I’m not as bad as I used to be” and while that may be true, proper diet and exercise is not temporary. You can’t reach your goals and revert back to bad habits, the best way to lose weight is to live a healthy lifestyle. Everyone knows this, yet why do so many people choose to disregard their health in the name of instant gratification?
Don’t say “I can’t have that” because you most certainly can, choose to say “I won’t have that” instead. Once you stop indulging in the sweet stuff, the fried stuff or the salty stuff your body begins to stop craving it. When you listen to what your body tells you, you can begin to understand why you are overeating. When you finally reach your goals, you’ll look at yourself in a whole new way.
Here are a few tips to get you started:
- Eat less and eat better!
- Small changes add up
- Exercise daily
- It’s not ALL about the scale
I did it, and I’m not done yet. 60lbs down, 20lbs to go.
