Weight Loss Wednesday

Morning, folks! I’ve made a real breakthrough with my weight loss. In a nutshell, it’s this:

Simple, right? Of course there’s a correlation between what I what and what I weigh but quite why it’s taken me so long to shift the weight, I just don’t know. I’ve discovered that if I focus on it, I can still eat lots of really tasty things but by stopping when I’m full and choosing to avoid too many bad fatty foods then losing weight is pretty simple.

I’m fortunate not to have any medical issues that influence my weight, but for any of you out there who weigh more that you should just due to poor choices and excess (like me!), dust off your stubborn streak! It’s the only thing that works for me!

Unfortunately, I can’t tell you that my stubborn streak has extended to my exercise regime. Away from the blog things have been manic for me and by the time I’ve got home, exercise is the last thing on my mind. Deep down, I know that I’d feel better for doing some, I’d even feel less tired by doing it and yet I haven’t done it.

Why can’t I apply my stubborn streak to exercise? I need to do it yet getting my backside out of the door seems impossible at the moment. Please, kind people, give me your best tips for doing some exercise when you least feel like doing it or tell me to JFDI. My wobbly arse will thank you.

How are you getting on this week?

  1. Hey Sarah, the 30 day shred DVD is a good one, it’s easier to start knowing that you will be finished in twenty minutes. For me, classes at the gym are what works. I hate when someone books a space then doesn’t show up, so I would never do it. There’s a great variety too, so far this week I’ve done pump, step, core stability and yoga – really working every area. Yoga is a great one for making you feel better mentally, and toning you up, without panting and sweating like crazy! I hope you find your va va voom soon :)

  2. I am exactly the same!! I am also the kind of person who says ‘well, I’ll be good tomorrow, but for today I’ve already been bad so might as well have another biscuit/cake/cheese sandwich’ and I know that kind of ‘all in or all out’ approach is a big derailer – so I’ve been inputting my food daily into myfitnesspal.com and I find that really helps – I try to make sure I log everything and then I can negotiate with myself what treats I can have. I realise that writing down my thought process makes it seem like I’m quite hung up about food, but it’s not that – I think a lot of us would be in better shape if we were better informed and more aware of what we’re eating!

  3. In the past i have printed out and stuck up some motivational statements to remind myself why I should do it. It’s all about your positive and negative self talk. You need to give yourself lots and lots of good messages about exercises and stamp out the thoughts that cause you not to bother. *says all this while lying on the couch with a mars bar*

  4. Diet? diet? The lovely lady who I think looks amazing? Eeekkk…..perhaps my gym time needs ramping up just to look even half as good as you….
