There are as many plans to lose weight as there are people trying to lose weight. I won't go too far in depth here as I have already covered multiple plans in previous blogs.
I am trying to figure out how to get my rear end back on track which means re-visiting some previous topics.
I don't believe that you have to give up all things good and tasty in order to lose weight. I believe the word is moderation.
Some food groups are good to eliminate albeit not all.
You need to do what works for you, not your sister cousin aunts friend.
I know for me, a few things need to happen.
1. I need to get off the sugar
2. I need to get off carbs and all things wheat
3. I need to exercise
4. I need to track my calories
5. I need to tackle the problem of emotional eating
I return to PA/NJ in October which gives me 6 months to lose weight and get in better shape. I have an elliptical that I need to use daily. I have a supportive family and I have a desire to make it happen.
So how do I make this happen?
I usually follow the "Go big or go home" mentality. But I don't think it's going to work this time.
Step 1: I need to plan, pack and track all meals the night before.
Step 2: I need to get on the elliptical 10 minutes daily
Step 3: I need to read the articles on emotional eating and start keeping a journal.
Step 4: I need to detox from sugar and wheat which can be done with menu planning.
Step 5: I need to come up with my motivators and make them visible.
I can do this. I have you do this. I want to do this.
