Let's remember that also to move 10 lbs of fat out of your body in a month, you need 8 glasses of water a day.

Also you need to make sure to get 25 grams of fiber a day.

The best way to rev up your metabolism, is eat a good breakfast. also, eat 2 snacks between meals, keep your blood sugar even and metabolism burning all day. Studies have shown that if one eats the same amount of calories in 2 meals or breaks up the calories into 5 meals/snacks, they will lose weight.

Also 2 quick tips:

Mkae sure if you eat a carb snack or meal, pair it with a protein, it gives energy, keeps you full longer and helps burn those calories.

Also, take your vitamins! Especially vitamin D. If your body is low in vitamin D (which happens in fall and winter months), it's harder for your body to release fat.

On days when you can't g to the gym or workout, wear your pedometer and get your 10,000 steps! If you are a thousand short at the end of the day, walk around the block a couple times and walk around the house.

Good luck all!
10 lbs a month = 2.5 per week.

imagine where you will be by New years! ( 7.5 weeks away!)
