This past week, I have decided to put my new year resolution to test. At the beginning of the year, I went to the doctors to get a check up and see how much I’d weigh. At that time, I weighed 4 lbs more than what I do now. That is two weeks later exactly.
I feel healthier, and I even act like I am healthier. I’ve done a lot of thinking and how to do this major change.
I have decided to change my eating habits. I am such an emotional eater, it is not even funny. I love to eat food. I’ll eat when I’m happy, I’ll eat when I’m sad, and I’ll especially eat when I’m upset. That’s who I was. This is the biggest change ever to me because, it’s something I really want.
Every morning before I take my dog, Pocket, outside for a walk, I will drink a glass of water. Water helps make yourself more full before you eat. It also helps your body digest the food you are about to it. When I come back in from the walk, I will eat just one slice of whole grain bread. White and wheat bread are bad for you.
I also write in my ipod what food and how many calories I eat in a day. I do not go over 1200 in a day. Instead of eating 3 meals a day, I eat 3 meals with 2 snacks. I also eat my dessert before I ate my dinner. It gives it a better chance to burn that calorie off. My dessert is typically that second snack in the day.
When you are bored, you eat. When I’m bored, all I do is think about food. I fiddle my thumbs and just think about how much food I want to eat.
I want to provide you with some information that I have found online that helped me lose this 4 lbs.
1.) Drink a glass of water before any meal.
2.) Eat a meal. In 3 hours, have a snack. After that, wait 3 hours and have lunch. In another 3 hours, have your dessert. Then wait 3 more hours, and have your dinner.
3.) Get rid of the bad foods, so when you crave them, grab an apple. (or something you know you will like)
4.) If you sit down all day, walk while you are on break at work.
I hope to share more information I’ve come to see.
