Losing weight, how do you actually do that? I am on a weight loss journey and exploring what works and what doesn’t. I would love to share with you how to lose weight in a natural way.
“Good morning,” I smile at my Doctor friend. “How are you? I have lost 4kg so far. I now weigh as much as I did when I was fat in high school.”
“Hi. You are doing great,” the Doctor encourages me. “It will come off. Give up all forms of sugar now including alcohol. That includes potato.”
“I don’t drink much alcohol,” I tell him. “Just the occasional glass of champagne. Life has to remain fun. Last glass is more than 2 weeks ago. No potatoes for me. Pizza is a tough one though.”
Trustworthiness – Setting a goal and believing that you will achieve it is at the basis of losing weight successfully. You will gain confidence in your weight loss journey if you share your ideal weight with the people around you and fill them in on regular updates.
Expression – Your body needs the freedom to move. Any movement is important. And I am not talking about heavy sweaty sports here. Although I love jogging and yoga, you will achieve just as much results in losing weight just by walking. Make sure you take a walk each day. Build it up. Make each day a slightly longer walk than the day before. The oxygen will do marvels to your brain as well.
Deal – Take responsibility for your own actions. Be accountable for how much you move and how much you eat. Be mindful of everything you put into your mouth. Fruit and vegatables are good. Meat is good. Sugar is bad. Bread, pasta and patatoes are bad. Well in moderation of course.
Monitor – Measure your success. Daily weigh ins might be exaggerated. But do make a point of weighing yourself at least once a week, at the same time and on the same scales. And monitor your progress as you gradually lose weight.
Okay, I’ll admit, this is the kind of thing you will read in Cosmopolitan magazines. What’s the true secret to weight loss? First of all, really wanting it. I want to be a fit and healthy MILF. I really want that. I want it so much, it has become a desire. I make a conscious decision several times a day about what I am going to eat and how much I am going to move. When I feel like giving up, or when my scales go up again? Do I want to quit? No sir, I remind myself each time of four letters: MILF. And that thought alone spurs me onto persevere. To keep going. I am determined to be successful in this weight loss journey.
You can do it ! Remember, weight loss is a slow and long term process. It requires dedication and radically changing your habits to become a better, healthier version of yourself.
