Weight Loss: A Lifestyle Change

Standard

OVER THE PASS YEAR, MY HUSBAND AND I WERE FINALLY SUCCESSFUL AT LOSING WEIGHT

AND DEVELOPING OUR OWN HEALTHY WAY OF KEEPING IT UNDER CONTROL .

THIS IS OUR THEORY, NOT A DOCTOR’S, THEREFORE, IT MAY NOT WORK FOR EVERYONE.

ALL OF US HAVE TO GET TO KNOW OUR BODIES AND HOW FOOD AFFECTS OUR LIVES.

DOCTORS CAN START THE JOURNEY WITH YOU HOWEVER, WE HAVE TO ACTUALLY TAKE THE JOURNEY.

HEALTH THREATS INSPIRED THE LOST.

LEARNING ABOUT CARBOHYDRATES AND CONTROLLING OUR DAILY INTAKE OF THEM

ENCOURAGED THE BULK OF THE WEIGHT LOST.

OUR THEORY THROUGH THIS PROCESS IS: WEIGHT LOST IS 75% FOOD INTAKE MONITORING

AND 25% EXERCISING. OUR EATING HABITS HAD A MORE DIRECT BEARING ON OUR WEIGHT THAN EXERCISE.

WHILE ON THIS JOURNEY, WE HAVE CHANGED OUR OPINION OF EXERCISING.

WE NOW VIEW EXERCISE AS MEDICINE FOR MOST HEALTH ISSUES.

STAY ACTIVE. KEEP YOUR BODY MOVING. WALKING IS AN AWESOME, FUN WAY TO EXERCISE!

WE HAD THE MOST SUCCESS WHEN WE STARTED CONTROLLING AND MONITORING

EVERYTHING WE PLACED IN OUR MOUTHS.

WE ALSO KNOW THAT MOST OF US ALREADY UNDERSTAND WHAT IT MEANS TO “EAT HEALTHY”.

WE MUST BEGIN TO CHOOSE HEALTHY FOODS THAT WE LOVE AND CHANGE OUR MEALS ACCORDINGLY.

SINCE EATING OCCUPIES A GREAT DEAL OF EACH DAY,

IT’S IMPORTANT TO RESEARCH HOW FOOD AFFECTS OUR HEALTH.

WHEN YOUR HEALTH IS THREATENED BY THE FOOD YOU ARE EATING, AS MOST OF US ARE ;

LOVE YOURSELF ENOUGH TO CHOOSE LIFE!

MAN UP!

FLOW WITH LIFE-NOT AGAINST IT

  • LIFE IS ABOUT THE “CHOICES” THAT YOU MAKE. FACE IT AND MOVE ON.
