the first day...

Thursday, September 19, 2013

They say that the first step is the hardest. They also say that half the problem is admitting that you have a problem. Okay. So yay for me! I'm already half way there! Wait a minute...I'm still fat. Yeah...all the way fat! No half way stuff either... if I am anything at all, its consistent. And I have been consistently eating and drinking all of the wrong things which has led to me consistently gaining pounds for the last several years. one is on its way although technically its 7:34 in the evening and I have just now started so woohoo! Day one is a breeze! Whoa! Get this... I didnt even eat anything on day one! Hehe! I can already feel the pounds melting off. I might be able to do this after all!

    No problem that your healthy lifestyle started at 7:30 pm on Day One. You started with your sense of humor intact and on a positive note and you can't ask for more than that! Your positive attitude is wonderful. We all start out with trepidation, but we get stronger the more experienced we become. Just remember to be kind to yourself along the way. Reward yourself for what you do right. What you do wrong you will learn from, so it is not a waste of time. I wish you great success with your goals! Take care and God bless, Deb

    Thank you, nightocups and Blushious! To Blushious...I most definitely have not deprived my body of food. Actually it's not even possible for me to do that. I have hypoglycemia and I need to eat several times a day if I want to stay upright. In my first message I was kind of stating sarcastically that I made it through my "first day of dieting" with no trouble but my first "day" didn't actually start until 7:30 pm. All kidding aside, I believe that you and the information you have will help immensly. Thank you.

    I was excited to see a new member who was enthusiastic...and then you said you didn't eat. I used to make that mistake, too. It's not healthy. Sure, you'll lose weight...but it will be muscle, not fat. Muscle is your body's furnace. Do you want to damage your body's furnace?

    I would recommend eating lean proteins, fruits and veggies and lifting weights. Cardio won't help you lose, although it's a great starting point (was for me, anyway) but building more muscle with weights will, as it will help you build lean muscle. That doesn't mean you have to be one of those bulky female bodybuilders. Do the strength machines at the gym. Or, take a 5 lbs weight, hold it straight out in front of you, and do 3 sets of 15 squats (resting in between) while holding that weight up. The more you workout, the more you need to eat, too.

    Please nourish your body, don't deprive it. It is is possible to eat and lose. And if you follow will be surprised at the results. And, there are plenty of great foods out there to eat. Eat meats. Eat eggs -- even the yolk. They are great for fat loss and the cholesterol is good for your brain. Truth. Our bodies produce cholesterol. Do research on eggs and find that there is no proof that they increase "bad" cholesterol. Don't worry about carbs. Or, do. Take pieces from a bunch of different routines and make them your own. Avoid wheat and corn (I do, anyway). Corn is a grain. And, have you ever read "Wheat Belly?" Do some research and find a HEALTHY way for you that is all your own.

    Take a look inside at your emotions. Take a look at your relationships. Figure out your triggers. Learn you. Are you an emotional eater? What triggers that? Are you a habitual eater? Are you an addict? What positive steps can you take to change?

    Take baby steps to get on track. I'm here if you want to commit to being healthy, please know that.
