Hi all, I am looking to add some pals to my fitness world and newsfeed. :)

  • Hi kseals,

    I am learning that there is no magic formula. I think it comes down to really wanting it and dedicating your efforts to

    1. Log your food
    EVERYTHING and make healthier choices as often as possible.

    I am aiming to break one or two bad food habits a week. Like this week I am putting one less spoon full of creamer in my coffee and I am making egg whites on my taco and removing the sausage patty. That alone has cut 100 calories a day from my routine.

    Next week I will work on adding more veggies to my dinner plate. Stuff like that.

    2. MOVE! Walk, run in place, squat, clean the house just because you want to move more. :bigsmile:

    3. Believe in yourself. I tell myself every morning. I am WORTH IT!

    Also, we are afraid of failure or not seeing the results over night and we all must work on that. It is okay if we have a slip up, but we have to continue to step on that scale, measure our progress and keep going! GOOD LUCK, you can do this!
