Today's A-Z Blogging Challenge - I am a Loser!! Are you???
The letter L, the first thing that came to mind was Loser. I am a loser, certainly not the biggest loser, but consistently losing pounds each week. You don't have to remind me, I know my weight was up 5.5 pounds last week, but that was water gain. As of this morning my weight was at pre-vacation weight. I hope by Monday when I do an official weigh-in that there will be more than a 5.5 pound drop.
Are you staying consistent in your weight loss? If you are consistently losing, you are doing great. Even if you are losing a small amount, you are still making progress. Each little bit adds up to a large amount. Don't beat yourself up because your weight loss isn't huge each and every week. Just work to develop a downward pattern and keep doing the things that you know you need to do to get to a healthy weight.
Tell me, have you exercised regularly this week? Do you step it up occasionally? Give your body a challenge, don't allow your body to get totally used to what your are doing. You will see more progress if you change things up a little and push yourself.
As far as diet is concerned, I believe the biggest aspect of my weight loss is eating very little wheat or wheat products and little to no sugar. If I eat this way it eliminates all the processed foods. I think eating things in their natural state is not only great for your health it is also fantastic for weight loss. I try to eat meats, fruits and vegetables, nuts, and a small amount of dairy. I occasionally allow myself a piece or two of pizza.
