Wedding planning is so hard, but I am doing my best to plan well and at the same time get healthy for our big day. I'm in People magazine's brides weight loss challenge and plan to meet my goals by September. I welcome any tips to help me on my journey! Visit my spark page.
I began a spark team called Reading 50 Books in a Year. I wanted to relate my weight loss to something I really enjoyed doing. I have a rule I can't eat while I'm reading. While it took a while for that rule to sink in, now I can't even imagine eating while reading. Besides it'd get the pages messy.
You can't resist to eat too late in the evening? Brush your teeth AFTER your last meal. Just thinking about the taste the food will have in your mouth will discourage you to have a snack :P (and who would like to brush their teeth 2 times in the same evening?)
I had a hard time meeting my daily water intake, until I tried this. I set a timer to drink one cup of water during that hour. Then after 8 hours ( that time just seems to fly by during the day) I have all 8 glasses consumed!
If you don't move...your scale will not move either! I can eat the right foods, drink the water, but if I don't do my aerobic walking...the scale stubbornly sticks!! I chose walking as my exercise because I will actually DO it.
Profile preferred & undressed. As you lose weight you increase your satisfaction of the view and you see where the pounds are disappearing from. Effective when diet is combined with exercise and need to take showers more often. You don't have to go out of your to find a mirror in the bathroom.
