I hit a wall with my weight loss, it began once I’d lost 15 kgs. Down to 80 kgs I felt fitter, happier and healthier. I’ve always liked to be curvy and wasn’t even sure if I wanted to lose the extra 10 kgs to get down to my original goal of 70 kilos.
The weeks while I was deciding kind of slipped by.
I now have decided.
I DO want to lose the last 10 and knowing that I’ve already lost 15 has been quite a good motivator. Knowing that it is possible helps.
I’ve received a few emails here and there asking if I would lose the rest as people have found some inspiration in their own weight-loss. I then got a comment from a friend saying she needed some help and wanted some ideas and a bit of motivation.
Thats was exactly what I needed too.
So I’ve come up with Skinny Sunday, day by day. It is too hard going it alone the whole 7 days. So each day I will post what I’ve eaten and what exercise I have done.
I’ll post my own personal food plan for the week and include an entire grocery list for those who’d like to copy, paste and print.
I’ll include lots of tips and hints and things that have helped me. I’ll also post tasks to complete to keep us on track.
I’m in the process of organising my food plan and recipes to include with those.
But I need YOU to do something for ME.
If you’re wishing to lose weight, be it 5kgs or 25, suck it up and do it now. Whats another week wasted. Start now. If your IN email me your ‘before’ picture (firstname.lastname@example.org) I’d like to put a collage together of all us hot ladies so we can see that we aren’t alone. The picture helps to cement your involvement. It will help you to commit as you’ll be watching the progress of the other women involved along with yours, we can all motivate each other. So SEND ME YOUR PICTURES! (Include a little bio if you like, with your name, age and weight.)
What will happen if you DO lose your weight? List 5 things. (example, I will feel lighter, my husband will think I’m sexier….etc)
What will happen if I DON’T lose weight? List 5 things. (My health will be affected, I won’t be able to keep up with my kids…etc.)
I also HIGHLY recommedn joinging CalorieKing.com. This way you can record your food and exercise, keep an eye on your caloire intake and keep it all online, with loads of extra support. If not you can always keep a note pad in your fridge, kitchen bench somewhere close so you can jot down your food and exercise.
Those examples may not be important to you, so make them personal to your situation feel free to comment your lists or if you’re not comfortable with that, make sure you put it down on paper to look back on.
If your unsure don’t be. The exercise I plan for us will involve things for busy mums to do, like dancing to music while cleaning, walking the long way home after walking your child to school, doing a washing line relay (basket at the end of the yard, run to get the next piece to be hung) I know what it is like to not have time or energy for that matter, but I do also know that we are wonderful multi-tasking creatures which are capable of so much. I think looking after ourselves should be one of our top priorities along with looking after everyone else.
Food wise, I do know that your entire family may not want to be involved and I know how hard it is to prepare a meal for your family that you may not want to be eating. It is easier to be part of the crowd. Just go with the flow, and eat whats going. Which is why I’ve made sure that the meals I am including are simple, light, filling and EASY. I can make my own food while preparing my families meals without it being a hassle. P.s, I’m including desserts!
I also know that 2 entire shopping lists can be pricey. I will include the list along with prices and brands to help you work it into your normal shopping budget.
Cheap. Simple. Healthy.
I can honestly say now that if you lose weight using these methods rather than shakes, pills or any other un natural way. It won’t last. Thats if it works at all.
We’re going to spend each day feeling full of HEALTHY good nutritious food. And increasing our activity levels.
Not too unrealistic.
I have faith in you!
I can’t wait to get started.
Remember email me your before shots!!!
JUST DO IT!
What have you got to lose??
