There are many changes you can make, it all rests on your sholders to go thru with them.
If you want to really understand why and what you need to do for yourself.
Stand in front of a mirror naked turn around. Sit down on a chair. You will see all the areas of your body you want to work on and see that getting healthy will help change what you see.
Most of us never really look at ourselves when we look in a mirror. We never really see what is really there.
Then after you understand that you need to change the way you live. You can junk out al the junk in your home. Why keep it who cares if you spent the money for it. You just dont need it in the house with you.
Read labels and understand what you shouldnt be having and why you should be having it or not having it. After you eat a meal then go grocery shopping and refill your home with heathy options for snacks and better choices to cook with.
Also keep a jornal of what your eating for a while until you see and understand what your eating and how much of it you should be eating. You might be surprised that your either eating to little at certain times or to much.
Eat every three hours. Breakfast , snack, lunch, snack, dinner snack.
Most of our troubles begin because we are not eating enough at the right times.
You can eat all the right stuff you want. But if you dont move more than what your normally do in a day then you wont lose one single pound.
Alot of people I encounter at work feel that because they walk at work thats their exersise. Wrong. Thats your nomal activity and you need to do more than that to lose anything.
Be honest with yourself. We are our own worst enemy. You can not talk yourself in to something you know is wrong for you. What you need to be saying is " This is wrong for me and I should" not have this. Or I need to get up and get moving now. Other wise I wont.
Some people can benefit from one particualr plan. But then theres some of us that had to take certain ideas for many diffrent plans and if they worked for us then great. But change is good and variety is exciting. Try and do.
Your your best and worst critic, you know what you need to do its just a matter of how bad you want it.
On having lost the weight I have I can defintly , without a doubt say that its made certain areas of my marriage alot better. If that helps describe some of the many diffrent areas losing weight has changed my life for the better.
If you really want this and are willing to put in and give the effort it needs to lose the weight. You can do it.
Its going to take time and your will. As long as your willing to give it those then you can do this.
