What I’ve Learned

The following is a list of simple things I learned, which worked for me while on my weight loss journey*:

  • It’s not easy to lose weight, but it is possible.
  • Effective weight loss takes time.
  • Diets don’t work, only a change in lifestyle does.
  • Keeping it off is just as hard as losing it.
  • Reward yourself when you have reached milestones or personal goals.
  • Don’t let anything or anybody stop you.
  • You control the food, it does not control you.
  • Eat less, move more.
  • Know your BMR and understand how it works.
  • Take pictures of your progress. You won’t regret it.
  • Nobody is going to lose the weight for you.
  • Don’t be lazy. Stay as busy as possible.
  • Everything in moderation, especially treats and sweets.
  • You will have “those days” so don’t let them get you down.
  • Regret nothing and make no excuses. If you fall off the horse, brush yourself off and get back on it.
  • Stay focused and never lose sight of your goal.
  • Find your motivation: a weight goal, your family, etc.
  • Don’t resort to pills, fad diets, diet drinks or other so-called weight loss products, gastic bands or other forms of surgery for weight loss. This is your time to shine, and you can do it because you’re better than all those things.
  • Think of everyday tasks (laundry, yard work, etc.) as ways of burning calories, not chores.
  • Educate yourself on [proper] nutrition and know what you are putting into your body, your temple. It’s the only one you’ll ever have.
  • Don’t push yourself. Know when your body has had enough and needs to rest.
  • There are no shortcuts to losing weight—it’s all or nothing, so find that “on” switch and never look back.
  • Resist temptation, and finally…

Hope these help you in your journey 🙂
