In 2007 I lost 50 pounds on Weight Watchers. It was amazing and took me about 6-months. I wasn’t hungry and I was even starting to enjoy exercise. In March of 2008, I was still doing Weight Watchers when I became ill with a terrible flu…and that is where my diet ended.
Here we are July 2009, I have gained 24 pounds since stopping my Weight Watchers journey and I’m back, though struggling with motivation. I’m working on journaling my food intake…it’s pretty eradicated on how often I actually succeed. I do ride my bike, though pulling 95 pounds of kiddos in the bike trailer makes for a very short, hard ride..yup! Sucks the fun right out of it.
Well, today, while surfing the web looking for anything to inspire me in my weight loss adventure, I ran across a site that has some really great articles centered around weight loss and an overall healthier person as a whole. It’s called Diet-to-Go. While visiting the site, I ran across an article entitled 5 Keys to Fat Loss Success.
While most of the article was common sense, it really explained things in a layman’s term to where it gave me pause to thought. The article was written by: Wendy Chant, MPT, SPN, “a certified personal trainer and a specialist in performance nutrition. She holds a bachelor of science degree in medical sciences and nutrition science. A champion body builder, she opened her own training center, ForeverFit®, in 1998. Her latest book, Conquer the Fat Loss Code, is available now from McGraw-Hill.”
I really liked the article’s reality. It even says under Key 3: “stick to it”…yeah, that’s my biggest problem. It’s about setting short-term goals….which should lead to long-term goals. It’s about breaking your comfort zone and really challenging yourself.
It was a great find…
so I read more…
There’s an article on reducing stress, rosacea, the 5 Biggest Work out Mistakes and more.
If you’re looking for some solid reading material and have a few minutes, I’m encouraging you to check out Diet-to-Go…you might just be inspired.
