I am one of you !
Many of us out there in the big, wide world need to lose weight and want to lose it, and we never want to find it again. I am one of you.
Decision time !
The decision was made after Christmas 2016, to lose weight and say goodbye to the telly belly or beer barrel or Weber or balloon or whatever you would like to call it. And I have already lost almost a stone. Twelve lbs to be exact. I always round off.
So what am I doing ? Am I dieting ? Am I taking tablets which curb my appetite, am I running for an hour every day? The answer to all these questions is a big fat , NO ! Not yet. I have simply increased my activity and cut down on certain foods (haven’t needed to cut out yet) and I have also cut down on the amount of food I put on my plate at mealtimes. And I snack on fruit whereas I was previously snacking on biscuits, ham slices, cheese slices, chocolate, in fact anything I could get my hands on.
Daily Rituals !
My programme consists of a number of daily rituals (these have become habits). Things that are non negotiable
- Came across a book by Stephen Guise about using “mini habits” (rituals) to lose weight. I did a review on this book so please pop to the Review Page of my site and take a look. You too might find it very interesting.
When I made the decision to flatten my tummy in January of 2017, I basically cut down on the volume of food I was eating at mealtimes and also on the naughty snacky foods mentioned above. I also walked a lot and am still walking flat-out. Spend a lot of time with my tummy trimmer. (My BB as I refer to it.) Also on my Review Page.
This strategy has definitely made a big difference during these first five+ months. And now besides continuing with my earlier programme I have added Stephen’s little book of wisdom to my journey. I would strongly encourage you to take a look.
May I invite you to pop in at any time for a chat.
