Body happiness


Thursday, April 19, 2012

When your losing weight and want to keep motivated the most important thing is to be positive. Celebrate every, single, teeny, tiny victory. A few days ago I noticed my arms looked smaller. I measured and sure enough!...I had lost an inch off my arms. Today before getting in the shower I stood sideways and (ignoring my big stomach) focused on my back half, and thought...WOW! That's not so bad. My back is much less flabby :) and the fat rolls are shrinking. My butt is toned and almost virtually free from cellulite. My legs look much more toned, and getting slightly muscular.

If I could get rid of this stupid gut I have, I would be happy with my body. emoticon

That is a shocking thought. That I could be this close +.....+ to having the body I could be happy with.

The problem is how to get rid of belly fat. I have read books and listened to what Dr. Oz said and I think it is time to start following some of the advice. Most "Belly fat" plans suggest limiting carbs and sugars. I can do that. I also have learned that these types of foods bloat me. Not fun....or attractive!

Dr. Oz said to use caraway seeds to reduce gas and bloating. So I added them to my morning smoothie. Well, most of them did not blend up and I had to swallow them or chew them like tiny annoying pills. But again, a change I can live with to get a smaller belly.

Ahhh...changes.

The rest of my day will entail finishing the work day, grabbing my son, taking him to grab something to eat, and getting him somewhere where he can change, having him change into his soccer uniform and then running him back to school to get on the bus to go to his game. Then I will run home, grab my money, get gas and head to his game the next county over. After the game we will grab something healthy to eat and head home. I will hop on my bike and ride 30-60 mins ( I already did LV 2 of the 30 day shred) and then will announce my day done!

    I wonder if the caraway seeds would work just as well if they were ground (say, in a coffee grinder) before adding to your smoothies? Flax seeds are supposed to be easier to digest this way...perhaps the same goes for caraway seeds?

    Hi Melody;

Darling, don't forget grab about a half hour of relaxation for you, down time. It is so nice to see changes in our bodies and if I don't get myself started back with more exercising my changes are going to go in the other direction. Stay healthy and love life. God bless you always.

    People store their excess in different places. When you get to the right BMI/weight, etc., it'll go.
