I did a little happy dance today for 2 reasons: 1) I finished my first Masters class today and I might say that I put ALOT of time and work into that class(I'm soo glad I'm finished for the summer!) 2) I am down 8.6 lbs, so I can round up to 9 lbs!!! Woohoo:):):) I plan on loosing 1 more pound this week before we leave for vacation! Then I will be down a total of 10 lbs!!!
I have to say I give a lot of credit to loosing this weight to eating things like this:
|Eat this for lunch everyday!|
|Breakfast burrito during camping:):)|
I have also lost this weight because of doing things like this:
|Using the eliptical|
This point in my life, I am enjoying exercising and craving healthier foods such as fruits, and veggies!! I have to say the things that have helped me out the most are:
2) Having people around you who support your decision. I'm not saying everyone that you know should be dieting or exercising , but let them know what you're doing and that way they won't pressure you into doing things that isn't a good idea for your weight loss, such as going out to eat.
5) Make goals for yourself, short-term and long-term. I'm not saying just how many pounds you want to loose within the next 6 months, be more specific and make a couple short term goals that you can make right away! For example, only eat "x" amount of fat calories within the week or work out for "x" amount of minutes per week.
6) This may sound a little on the cheesy side, but make yourself a "contract" or at least write down what your goal is. What I did was write a paragraph about why I'm fed up with my health choices right now and the reasons why I want to loose the weight to become more healthier. I also wrote my long term goals down on the same sheet, along with incentives! Once I loose 30 lbs, then the hubby will take me on a shopping spree for clothes:):) I even made incentives for loosing 10 lbs and 20 lbs. Read this paper every day! I do and it keeps me motivated to keep on going, no matter how hard the journey is!
I'm definitely not a weight loss expert, these are just some of things that I have done to help me try and change my ways. They seem to have helped out TONS! I plan on continuing to use these and hopefully find some new tips to add to my list as I continue on with this weight loss journey! My long-term goal is to loose a total of 50 lbs! I'm almost 1/5 of the way there:):):)
I hope you all enjoy your weekend!!!
Thanks for stopping by:):):)
Until next time!!!!!!
