I was always thin and skinny growing up and could eat anything without putting on pounds. But once I reached my early 20's, I put on weight in a way I never thought I would. So, I decided to go on a diet without having a specific diet. I would use right eating, exercise and healthy habits that would change my life in more ways than one. I have outlined some of them below so maybe they can help others as well. I have now lost about 10 lbs and still losing steadily. I want to lose more but I am going to do it in a manner that is healthy. Check out my tips and leave any you might have in the comments!
1.Use Portion Control.
This is something major and I am so happy that this is working for me. It is amazing how big our portions have become in America and what they used to be. I am really digging in on this and using portion control. I eat smaller portions and try to leave some on my plate. I know it goes against what we all heard as children to eat everything off your plate and don't waste, but this really works!
I do cardio and weights daily. My cardio is anything from an exercise DVD to walking. But I get in a good amount of time doing this. And my weights I do at least 3 times a week. I don't use a large amount but I do enough that it tones the body quite well.
3.Drink Lots of Water.
This is something I learned from a friend who kept pushing me about this. I was pretty good about drinking water on a regular basis. But now that I have it with me constantly and drink when I feel hungry, it has made an amazing difference! Water is so healthy for you and it really helps curb the hunger.
4.Use a Fitness Tracker.
One thing that has really helped me is being accountable to friends. I joined a fitness tracker and we all help each other check in. Amazing!!
So, leave any tips or helpful info in the comments below. I am all for losing more weight and am sure my readers might find it interesting to see what worked for you!
