mental block preventing weight loss?
Wednesday, February 08, 2012
Last year I went from 255 to 205...and there's where I stayed. I ended up gaining some weight back at the end of last year and ended up back at 214.4.
For some reason, I can't get below 200. This is a pretty big deal for me, and many of us I know. What is it in my brain that makes me quit before I reach my goals?
In January, as per the usual new years hoopla of losing weight, the girls at work began a "biggest loser" type of thing where we are tracking water drank, exercise, and weight loss (once a week). I've gone from 214.4 to 204 so far! Just 5 lbs away from 199!
I've been exercising this week every day for 30 minutes on the treadmill...I know that's not much, I used to do one hour a day, but I've been in a bit of a funk when it comes to exercise, and I'm finding that that the thought of a 30 minute workout is less daunting to me than a full hour. Not really dieting, but trying to fo things the "healthy way" cutting back, cutting sodium, drinking loads of water. I have to do this in a way that I can see working long term...I've stuck to strict diets in the past...and then of course gained back what I lost plus more!
I've been looking for recipes that are quick, easy, healthy...any suggestions?
