Hi guys, I'm Teresa Cole. I'm new to the group and new to holding myself accountable for reaching my fitness goals. I'm using an app that helps me lose 1 pound a day while still eating a decent amount of food. I'm eating a lot of vegetables and drinking a protein shake every day. I've also purchased a spin bike so that I can work out at home without the extra stress of trying to fit working out into my schedule. The hardest part is my cravings for salt and sugar. Eating used to be something I looked forward to but now it's pure fuel, nothing more. I've found that I have to be all in or all out. I really can't do the in between because I just backslide. This journey had caused me to find other things I like to do more than eating like hiking, cycling, reading, blogging, ext. I even changed the way I date. Instead of taking me to dinner, let's go for a hike or go bowling. . .there is more to do than just eating. I just decided that I'm going to change my life and I actually like being able to breathe, fit into my feminine clothes, and feel good about how I look and feel. I've truly learned that if I eat it then I have to wear it and nothing tastes as good as being fit feels. I'm excited to be here and I've joined to be sure I stay on track and to be inspired by others and their fitness journeys. Feel free to comment and tell me what's working for you and how you're shedding the pounds!
