How I lost weight

by - 2/22/2016

Hey guys! I've gotten this question quite a lot since I started blogging, and that's how do I lose weight? And no I don't mean lose a couple of pounds here and there, and then gain the weight back. Well, that's a simple, first off you need to focus on what you're intaking as nutrition. I'm not a nutritionist, or anything, but I watch everything that goes into my body.  That doesn't mean that I'm just going to eat whatever I want, but this simply means to control how much I eat, by simply following a couple of simple steps:

1. If you go out to eat, don't try to eat everything on your plate or plates. Try to think of it this way, if you eat less what's the worst that can happen? You'll get hungry later? Well that's fine. If I go out to eat at a restaurant, and I'm going to consuming steak, veggies, and a baked potato, I don't finish my entire meal. I try to portion control myself, by simply cutting everything in half, and the half that I didn't finish I usually will take home and eat it the next day. Besides who says that leftovers are bad?

2. Exercise is always a good thing for anyone who sits at a desk 12+ hours a day. Even if you're just walking around for 30 minutes a day that's all you need to stay focused on your health. I go outside for at least 30 to 45 minutes every day when I get a chance. If I don't have the chance to go outside (darn allergies!) I usually like to work out in my house. There are plenty of free workout videos that you can check out. Like for example, I like watching Blogilates.

3. If you feel like you're gaining more weight then you are losing, time will only be able to tell. For those of you who are freaking out about gaining weight when you're suppose to be losing weight. There's nothing wrong with that. You might be building more muscle mass, which isn't a bad thing. And if you are gaining weight you might need to check in with your doctor.

4. Be happy about yourself. That's the one thing I cannot stress enough to everyone out there. If you start off angry or sad at yourself, that's only going to make you feel bad about your weight. I've accepted the fact that I'm always going to be a size medium. Would I like to be a size small? Yes, of course I would, but the fact is that some body types just aren't made to be that small. Is it okay for me to feel bad about my body? Sometimes, but don't put yourself down about it. And if there are people in your life who are putting you down, you might need to reconsider dropping them from your life.
