Anyone have any weight loss tips?
I need to lose like... a lot. LOL. If anyone here has loss like a serious amount... your secrets would be greatly appreciated! =)
I'm working on losing 15ish, and have been using My Fitness Pal on my Iphone. That helps a lot, because you monitor your daily calories through out the day. It helps with over-eating. Also looking up weight watchers recipies. I'm a huge snacker, I found a these muffin/cupcakes that are only 97 calories and they're awesome. And all it took to make them was water, spice cake mix, and pumpkin pie filling. Also another thing is whatever you eat, cut your portions and add more fruit/veggies. You get full on the RIGHT stuff. Cut out soda if you can... Drinks in general are unnecessary calories. If you can drink juice/water do that. My fitness pal really opens your eyes to stuff like that.
my fitness pal is definitely a good way. if you don't have an iphone, it's free on their website as well.
cutting out a lot of breads and not a lot of dairy helps as well. my friend has lowered her intake of both things and has had some success.
also look up jillian michaels 30 minute shred- all 3 levels are on youtube. they're hardcore but they definitely work if you're serious about losing weight.
For me, I need motivation to work out which leads me to eat better (don't want to undo that darn hard work) and I've become a fan of Blogilates. I printed out her calendar and when I get home from work I just do a google search on the daily workout, and then add some other cardio vids of hers and call it a day. Her attitude definitely keeps me going, which I really enjoy.
My motivation was that I had a good look in the mirror and said to myself "Girl you are 20 years old. If there is a time in your life when you can look the best you can it is now. You don't want to be literally in the best years of your life and be fat. Don't mess it up!"
There is a good website where you can log your calorie intake. Make sure you don't forget to log small snacks, because at the end of the day they add up and that could be extra 400 calories :)
I don't know if we are allowed to link web pages, but just trying to be helpful: http://caloriecount.about.com
