I had been on a "plateau" for nearly three months - basically I wasn't really staying alert to a good exercise regimen. I went back to charting all foods (weighing anything that could be weighed, using measuring cups, etc.) I also started changing my exercise routine at least once a week and PRESTO! I've started losing a pound a week again.
I check off what I have done on my chart on my wall everyday and have an end of day journal that I write in so I can see how much I have accomplished. I have a 6 month chart, that has symbols, a weight chart that goes from week to week, and a measurement chart I do one a month, each ending in 6 month. And anytime I feel low, or like giving up, I just look at what have done, and how far I have come.
Most americans have a sodium intake way above the charts
did you know that the RDA (recommended daily allowance) for sodium is 2500 mg per day? This is equal to ONE TEASPOON of table salt. Most Americans get anywhere from 2500 to 7500 mg per day. This is at fault for problems like high blood pressure, heart problems, and more. Watch your salt intake24
