You can do it! Also, if you don’t care for myfitnesspal, I really like spark people. Just tracking every bite that goes in your mouth can show you where your calories are coming from and see where you can safely cut calories without feeling restricted.

Focus on the getting healthy not on a specific pound amount. Focus on this being a long term change not a quick fix. Try to include one new healthy habit each week. Small things can make a huge impact.

– drink more water

-cut out fast food slowly

– reduce the amount of junk food you eat. A small amount is healthy a family size poriton not so much

– portion control., I cna’t say enough for weighing and portioning your food. You’d be amazed how much you could be self sabotaging with your portion size.

– try to move just a little more, which I know can be hard.

– take baby steps. Don’t focus on 30 lbs by march, focus on 5lbs this month.


You can do this!!!

I use Weight Watchers, and absolutely love it. It’s easier for me to track my foods than when I was using My Fitness Pal, because WW takes into account the overall health of the food item, rather than only looking at calorie count. I’ve gotten funny looks when I say I use WW, but it just works. It’s relatively inexpensive (I pay $18 a month for the app based plan, and they are always running sign-up deals). Diet is the biggest part of weight loss, and I HATE to work out so I basically do only dieting.

I agree with my fitness pal! I don’t like the idea of calorie counting but it really helps. I filled something on there out and it told me I should be eating 1300 calories per day (more if i’m exercising). O thought this sounded super low but its doable particularly if I plan it out. I also cut out meat which actually just makes me eat more salads/veggies (this could backfire if it makes you eat more pasta). This is combo with jogging I lost about 7-8 lbs which is what I wanted to do.

Paleo diet and weight training if you can. Personal training is a great investment even if you just do a few sessions. 

Avoid sugar even in fruits and some veggies! 

Add foods with probiotics. They do wonders for weight loss and your skin!

I think just be sensible and eat healthy food, lots of vegetables and protein. Drink lots of water and do moderate exercise most days. Don’t deprive yourself, or ban any foods completely. Just imagine how you want to look on your special day and use that as your motivation to stay healthy. Keep yourself busy 🙂

Oh, also don’t drink your calories. Don’t have drinks with sugar, eg. Tea and coffee. Have fruit flavoured soda water instead of soda/soft drinks.
