Weight is no joke.
It is one of those things that is always in the back of my mind. I might try to act like I don’t care. And I certainly don’t talk about it around my daughter. I know that our world already puts too much emphasis on it, and she will be fully aware of it in no time. I don’t need to bring it to her attention any sooner!
But I am at my highest weight I have ever been, not pregnant. And that is NOT OKAY with me.
My clothes are too tight and make me feel uncomfortable, I know I am not the only one trying to squeeze into tight jeans because I don’t want to buy a bigger size!
Recently, we had a chilly day- fall is definitely in the air. I reached for a pair of jeans, which I haven’t worn since last spring and they didn’t button. That is such a terrible feeling. I knew I had gained weight over the summer but this certainly didn’t help. I grabbed another pair of jeans, in the next size up and they buttoned but were so uncomfortably tight that I took them off and just wore shorts.
Last month you might have seen THIS post about Staying Motivated during your Fitness Journey. I know it is hard, and that depending on how much weight you want to lose, it might even be a long journey ahead of you. But I am here to tell you that if you stick to a plan you can do it!
Make your goals, set a schedule, find a meal plan that works for you and then DO IT!
- Overweight adults (BMI > 25) who are 18 years or older.
- alli® weight loss aid should be used along with a reduced-calorie and low fat diet.
- Cannot be pregnant or breastfeeding.
- In studies, most people lost 5-10 pounds over a 6 month period. (Your results may vary)
alli® weight loss aid is the only FDA approved over-the-counter weight loss aid on the market. It works by blocking 25% of the fat you eat from being absorbed by your body*.
In the past I have made weight loss goals, and ultimately, those have not changed. What I was looking to do was make a meal plan and schedule that worked for me. School was getting ready to start and our busy schedule was about to be back in full force. I needed to make this work around the time I had available to work out. Consult your doctor before starting any diet or exercise program.
I also made a meal plan that I could prepare ahead of time for days that I might be out and about. With kid drop offs and pick ups I don’t want to be tempted to grab something because it is quick and easy! If you are interested in what a meal plan looks like for me, you are welcome to join my Facebook group where I share lots of things like my meal plans, workout challenges, water challenges, etc.
When in doubt, Work it out!
So, in the last 6 weeks I am down 6 pounds! I am pretty happy with that, and it is a great start. Going forward into the holiday season makes it tough, but know that you can do it if you prepare yourself and put yourself on the right path!
