Weigh in Day September 19th

Today is weigh in day and needless to say it was an awesome day!! For the most part, each day since our last weigh in has been a great feeling. I’ve felt really good after each workout and I’ve felt skinnier each day as well. I know that sounds silly, but it’s true which I think helps a lot.

Kevin and I joined the gym the end of June and I first weigh in day was on June 25th. I’m happy to announce I’m down 10 ½ pounds, 3 ½ inches off my hips, and 6 inches off my stomach. Yay!!

Now at first I was upset about those numbers. I really thought changing my diet and working out 4-5 times a week for nearly an hour each time would take the weight off a lot faster. I see people that do the Ideal Protein diet and many others that drop the weight really fast, but what you may not know is that’s not healthy first off and second if you look back at those people, a large number of them put the weight right back on again.

I’m not following any diet right now, I just changed the way I eat and with the numbers I have this month, I would say it’s working. I still eat real, homemade food, I still go out occasionally, and I still have dessert every once in a while. What I don’t do is overeat. I don’t count calories, but I portion eat and that’s huge. I have also increased the amount of protein I take in which I think has helped as well.

With all of that said, I’m thrilled with my numbers today and I look forward to next week’s weigh in to see how much more I’ve dropped.

Tips for Choosing a Diet

Losing weight is not an easy thing to do. It can be really difficult at best, but you can get through it and get the weight off if you work hard enough. There are so many diets out there you may not know which one to go with. It’s a difficult decision to make, so you need to decide what will work for you. Not every diet will work for every person.

You should also consult your doctor when it comes to diets mainly because you may find certain diets aren’t good with medicines or conditions you may have. Your doctor may also be able to suggest a diet that will work better for your needs and health.

Sticking to a diet can be difficult at times. It’s best to find someone to help you when you have tough times. You will have tough times and in the beginning you may find you have more tough times than easy times. That’s why it’s important to find someone that is willing to help you. This person will need to give you encouragement when you’re going through a rough patch and help you celebrate in the right way when you’re down on your weight and feeling great about yourself.

Diet’s are Hard, but Worth It

It’s really difficult getting back on a diet after you’ve been off of it for a little while, but it can be done if you set your mind to it. This is where we’re at right now. We basically went off of the Weight Watcher’s diet right before we went to Hawaii. Needless to say that was a bad thing.

We both put weight on and that’s not what we wanted to have happen. Now we’re back on track, but it’s difficult. Working out is hard to do and seeing where we were before makes it even more difficult.

We’re including the boys in what we do and that’s been good as well. They do the workouts on the Wii and enjoy it. They also eat the same foods as us. This will help them to stay fit right along side of us, so it’s all good.

So here’s to another week, full of food that’s good for us and exercise that gives us more energy and helps us lose weight. Let’s do it!!
