As I was pissing away time time at the computer I found Curvy magazine. I'm enjoying many of their articles, though as always I'm confused by some of the people who come on to comment. If plus size people offend you, why go on the site in the first place? Are you such an insecure person that you need to go on to sites to try and belittle people??
They did an interview with a make-up artist who does YouTube instructional' videos & I felt that what she had to say about her weight loss was interesting.
"First, set REALISTIC goals for yourself: they have to be realistic!...
Then, do 1 step at a time: start by just giving up sodas for water or by cutting back on sugars. The key is to just cut 1 thing at a time so it doesn’t feel like you’re depriving yourself. Then don’t tell yourself “I’m giving up _____”, but say “I’m trading candy for fruit salad” or “I’m trading Pepsi for Diet Ice Teas”- you have to find healthy substitutes for what you eat now that still taste good to you.
It’s all about making YOUR health a priority. All your other plans can wait, your top priority is YOU and your health. You have to come first."
