You absolutely can lose weight and feel better! These are what I consider the three keys to my weightloss of 50+ lbs this last year. Please be reasonable, there are medical conditions that may require a doctors assistance, this is my story.
1) Be Positive (No Matter What)
We tend to start on something and give up at the first sign of a setback. Sometimes, we actually looking for a reason to quit including me. It could be a discouraging word from someone we considered a good friend or our family. Don’t cling to that! As my wife says with her business, “remember your why.” Why did you start? To proven someone wrong, to prove that voice in your head wrong? Your family? Your spouse?
2) Eat Simple
In the words of my college speech professor, “KISS it.” (Keep It Simple Stupid).
– Eat Simple
Eat foods with simple ingredients without processed foods. Sugar is processed, stay away. Sodas and most juice is processed or has added sugars, stay away. My rule, “If God made it eat it.”
– Eat Fiber
It keeps you full longer and cleans the junk out of your system. High fiber/high protein snacks are great choices through the day. Dried fruit, nuts, granola, etc. I eat frequently during the day. Natures little scrub brush!!
– Eat Protein
Your body needs fuel. Just keep it lean like chicken or wild game and small portions. You body really does not need as much as you might think. But, if you starve it for fuel you will regret it later.
You don’t need a preacher but a cheerleader, at least once you get started. You might well need a preacher to push you to start (thank them later, you probably don’t enjoy it now). This Blog has been excellent for me, even though none of the followers comment it still encourages me to post and see that people are viewing. Then I share my post with my digital friends on “spacebook” which adds another layer. Some of you may find a partner to keep you accountable.
Bottom line, make up your mind/go for the prize/goal in front/strive for it no matter what! YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!
