How does this weight loss thing work??

28 Oct
Had an old friend ask me how I have done this.  I wrote all of this in a message to him on Facebook, and then I thought why not write about it on my blog (again)?  So if you are tired of hearing me wax philosophical on this topic, feel free to stop reading!!
I got to this place where I was sick of being so big.  Probably one of the first steps was I had to be ready for a change.  I was.  So on the advice of a friend, I downloaded an app for my iPhone called MyFitnessPal. If you don’t have a smartphone, their website is myfitnesspal.com. It is FREE. You set up a profile, tell it how much you weigh and set a goal weight and it tells you how many calories you should eat in a day to get there over a healthy period of time.
You then need to log what you eat and be honest about it. I found that tracking what I eat helped show me how unhealthy I was eating. Believe this: Exercise helps tone muscle, but I have lost this weight in how I eat!!
I also had a trainer challenge me to eat a big breakfast, smaller lunch and dinner. I’ve never been a big breakfast eater but he dared me to do it for one month. So I started eating a two egg omelette with sausage and cheese and a bowl of Cheerios with two cups of coffee every day. That first month I lost 20 pounds
No crazy fad diets. No surgery. Just changing the way I eat and stepping up exercise as much as I can.
Let me know if I can help you!!!!
