Priorities, Choices, and Doing the Hard Thing — 4 Comments

  1. One of the most effective weight loss plans for me in recent years (so yeah, I’m definitely over 40…) was to choose 7 items, plus daily items (nuts, milk/yogurt), and unlimited veggies and fruit. We stuck with those items for 30 days. ( I can do anything for about that long). Then we reevaluated and decided if we wanted to change out the 7. The 7 idea came from someone else and I applied it to diet. The problem for me comes when I have too many options. Portion control played a huge part in this as well. I got smaller plates and bowls to assist in eating less. And I added water. No pop. No juice. I want to try it again. I need to. 🙂

  2. Slowly eliminate all the items that you are tempted to eat on a regular basis. You may want to work with a nutritionist. It is okay to eat eggs, lean protein, veggies. Eliminate sugar as much as possible that includes various fruits. Eat as much fiber as possible, and eat small meals to keep your energy constant. Exercise is so important in helping you to maintain and lose weight. Also, portion control, I do not count calories, I try to eat smaller portions. Stay hydrated this includes, water and tea.
