It can be difficult for me sometimes when I see people losing a lot of weight fast; it makes me want to get on THAT bandwagon because it is taking me a long time. I have to keep telling myself that the tortoise always wins the race in the end. It might seem like I am losing the race; however, here is what I am learning on SP about some of these fast weight-loss ideas.
Fasting most of the weight that comes off is water. If you are going to fast, fast from Fast Food
Detox Can spell disaster because you devoid your body of valuable nutrients and oh by the way
it is short lived and it is not backed by science
Calorie Cycling when you eat less than your calorie range one day and above your calorie range another day (trying to trick your body into losing weight). Cycling works best on a bike!
Best way, is to stick to your calorie range (the hardest part for me) and to eat whole food packed with nutrients
So instead of trying to catch up with a Fad Diet, I am learning to celebrate my victories especially non-scale victories. My victory for the past couple of days is my step count (over 7,000 steps) and my water intake (at least 8 glasses a day). I have been steady in both! :::patting myself on the back:::
Instead of worrying about how well others are doing, I am grateful to them for leading the way on this journey into a healthier lifestyle and for being such GREAT encouragers and supporters! Thank you!
Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.
What are you waiting for?
Life is good!
