It has been several months since I last posted. I have been so busy! But, I have also learned so much about losing belly fat. I have lost about 20 pounds, and am down to 180 which was my target weight. Success! And it really wasn’t hard… even the longest journey begins one step at a time. Over the next few blogs, I’ll share what I have learned so far. I credit a good friend, Marc Shrueder for coaching me and getting most of the information to me. I had always been thin, until just the last year or so. Losing weight humbled me and yet it is exciting and I would love to share my thoughts on this – though I have a lot to learn still.
THE SECOND THING I learned, is that you have to eat lean all day. Little light meals through the day – AND you don’t need as much food as your habits have trained you to eat. The goal is to eat till you are just comfortable. We don’t need more food than that. Once we eat till we feel even slightly uncomfortable – then you run into the problem of gaining weight. Most of our eating is EMOTIONAL. It is comforting to binge on food and brings temporary satisfaction. Go back, and think of your goal of being thin (the first rule) and the motivation and excitement of looking healthy and lean will take over your thinking – and will propel you to success! Then just eat till you have enough so your not weak – every few hours have a small portion of maybe the size of your fist of healthy foods. You will be amazed how much you will enjoy the food, and how you will have plenty of energy and how your body will adapt to where you really don’t NEED that much food anymore! Do NOT gorge on food. Keep your goal in mind. Your body and mind will adjust to where you are totally happy without overloading your digestive system after a few days. Rule NUMBER 2 – EVERY FEW HOURS EAT SMALL MEALS and EAT LIGHT.
More to come!
