Don't we wish there was a "magic" pill for this.......it's taken me 39 YEARS to figure it out. There are NO shortcuts......in order to lose weight and keep it off, I have to eat right and exercise. In my 20's, I could just do one or the other and take off a few pounds! At 39, not so much! Here's what makes me mad - my Dad has been telling me this my entire life! "It's just like your checkbook - you have to deposit more than you spend". With diet and exercise, it's the same philosophy!
What are you doing to lose weight? What has worked in the past? What doesn't???
I have to exercise, CARDIO, 4-5 times a week. I have to cut out the junk food. (Adios, McDonalds!) I have to drink lots of water. I have to drastically cut down on the Diet Coke (this is probably the hardest thing for me - I'm 150% addicted to the stuff). I have to eat like a truck driver on a budget, instead of like a truck driver. That's my way of saying, I have to seriously cut down on my portion sizes.
Oh and on those cardio days, at least 50 sit ups with the medicine ball. Working my way towards being able to do 100. I can't say yet that I "love" to exercise. If you love it, please tell me how and why!!! :-)
Can't wait to hear what you guys think of my comments. I need some motivation!!!
