Everyone asks what's my secret to weight loss?
Since starting this journey to a healthier me I've gone from 117 kilo's (257.40 pounds) to this weeks weigh in of 89 kilo's (195.80 pounds). Friends I havn't seen for a while are asking, "What's the secret to your weight loss?"
The truth be known, there is no special secret to weight loss. All I've done is started exercising at least an hour each day, cut out all the take out food like Macdonalds, Red Rooster and pizza, purchased a calorie book and ensure I stick to around 1200 calories per day, and educated myself on what a normal serving size is. That's it!
I'm also starting to wonder why I ever called this blog 'Weight Battle' because to be honest, I don't consider it a battle at all. It's just a matter of caring for yourself enough to add an hour exercise each day and being aware of the daily calorie's you eat.
Twice in my life I've lost over 30 kilo's before and regained it. The reason I regained the weight, is because I didn't take the time to weight in each week and care about maintaining the fitter healthier me. It's like if you stopped having your car serviced every 6 months. By the end of 5 years you'd have nothing more than a lemon that is breaking down one piece at a time. The same goes, with keeping a healthy body. Only this time around, I am now aware of the pitfalls and what's required to maintain a healthier me. I'm not on a diet as such, I'm on a long term healthier lifestyle that I know I can live with.
