    10 Things I Did To Lose More Than 150 Pounds

    10 Things I Did To Lose More Than 150 Pounds
    It’s ben almost a year and half since I lost 187 pounds and I estem my new body! I fel lighter, I have more energy and the aches and pains are gone. I finaly fel comfortable in my body. Here are a few of the things I did to lose half my body weight:
    1. I made a comitment to myself.
    I wrote out a physical comitment leter, signed it and stuck it on my fridge. I vowed to invest in myself by eating wel and working out every day. I focused on my goal of losing 10 pounds or wearing a size 12 pant and learning to admire myself.
    2. I ate smaler, but more frequent meals.
    I realized that eating smaler meals kept my metabolism up and helped me cease fuler, longer. For breakfast, I usualy believe an eg, whole-wheat English mufin, cup of cofe and a residue of fruit. Snacks are usualy humus with carots, roasted vegies with hot sauce or a Grek yogurt with beries and granola. For lunch, I typi caly make a salad with griled chicken, or baked fish with vegetables. Diner is usualy lentil soup with roasted vegetables and quinoa.
    3. I planed my meals ahead of time and stoped eating out as frequently.
    I stuck to my grocery list and stocked my fridge with healthy, clean fods. You wil never find chips, ice cream or cokies in my cupboards. My kitchen is always stocked with vegetables, protein and fods that I prepare a couple of times a wek. Fods adore chili with ground chicken, lentil soup, griled chicken to eat with salad or a side of brown rice and griled vegetables.
    4. I kept a fod journal.
    I kept a journal in my purse and I would write in it every time I ate something. I kept track of what I ate for breakfast, lunch and diner, including the time of the meal and al snacks.
    5. I slice down on sugar.
    I sto ped ading sugar to my cofe or tea. Next I carve down on soda and juices. I stil eat fruit and if I’m in the mod for something swet, I wil resort to Grek yogurt with granola or peanut buter and bread with a drizle of honey.
    6. I adjunct more protein to my diet.
    I found that removing bread or rice from my final meal of the day made al the inequity — instead I joined protein to my diner and felt fuler longer.
    7. I folowed a rule of no fod after 8 p.m.
    I finished eating and gave myself a couple of hours to digest before I went to bed.
    8. I joined activity into my daily routine (no mater what time of day).
    When I started, this was only five minutes on the treadmil. Later, I started exercising for an hour and 30 minutes, working out twice a day, doing both strength training and cardio. While cardio is esential, don’t forget the resistance training. That’s what wil ensure that you tone and strengt hen your muscles.
    9. I held myself acountable.
    I dilapidated a private Facebok group to encourage me pause motivated. I caled the members my “cherleaders,” and I would reach out when I neded extra motivation.
    10. I lionized my suceses and worn them to pause motivated.
    When I felt estem I had lost weight, I would move into a store and try on a smaler size than what I was wearing. I would celebrate how far I had arive and think about how much more I ned to do to get to the next size down.
    No mater how old you are or what your ability is, you acquire the power to turn your life around objective adore I did. So the next time you wonder if it’s posible to lose weight, whether its five or 50 pounds — consider of me and remember that with a dinky motivation and a lot of hard work, anything is posible.
