In the spring, I started making #FattoFit a reality in my life.
It started with a trip to the YMCA and I haven't looked back. I try to work out 30 minutes a day, five days a week and log every bite I eat. Cutting back on calories, carbs, and fat has been hard but not as hard as some of the other diets I've tried.
I must admit, I don’t feel like I’m dieting anymore. I’m eating better and getting stronger. Losing weight is a bonus. A huge bonus!
The first two months I was losing a little each week. And then, the scale stopped moving. Luckily, I have before measurements. So while the scale wasn't moving, my waist has been.
Tip: Take before measurements. Better way to gauge results.
Just because of my waist, bust, hips, and calves are smaller, I still want to see the scale move. With all the temptations of the summer, I knew that getting back on track this fall would mean extra help. Tools to help get past this plateau and back into a routine.
Despite logging my food choices, it helps me to have something to see that’s not on a computer screen. A checklist that I can use to remind me to make better choices, every day.
I created a weekly checklist (download it here) to make sure that I’m staying on track. As important as it is to eat three healthy meals and a snack, it's also necessary to drink plenty of water and get enough sleep. My checklist ensures that I keep to a routine and has space to make weekly goals, short notes, and track my mood.
