You have decided that you want to lose those unwanted pounds and that's great. Now, you have to develop a plan of action and execute it to be successful. The weight didn't come overnight and is not going to leave overnight.
When I was younger, I could almost eat anything and not gain weight. This is because growing up during my generation, the children played outside. We were extremely active. As we age and become less active, our metabolism that used to burn calories like a steel mill furnace, now has slowed down. If we continue to eat as if that furnace is still active, then we gain weight. Don't get me wrong, sustainable weight loss comes from eating. That is, eating the right foods. Become a student and learn how different foods react inside your body as they are broken down. Learn all about this in an eBook titled " Shortest Way to a Leaner You in 7 Days". This eBook breaks down The Glycemic Index and how eating the right foods can turn your body into a fat shedding machine.
You are going to have to prepare your meals in advance so you can know what you are going to eat and when. Take the guessing out of it. That way, you can stay on schedule. Be consistent, because if you are not, the enemy will sneak in and derail your efforts. You have to know where you are going in order to get there. With that being said, if you haven't conceived it in your mind and know you have achieved it, then you must get to that state. Refer to the the blog, "Weight Loss Begins in the Mind."
You are on your way to a better you.
