HOORAY – These Pants are Too Small

This post is from http://logicalloss.com/  

Gray SuitI tried to fit into a suit I hadn't worn in a while. The bottom line is it is too small. While this might be something that would depress me, now that I'm on the road to being fit I LOVE IT. Why? Because I know its only a matter of time until I fit into this suit. I just need to keep making the right choices, and exercising on a routine basis.

Understanding Food Labels 
I found an article at yahoo.com by Joy Bauer that explained how to Decode a label.  Here are some of the main points.

  • Watch the number of servings. I was surprised that most 12 ounce softt drinks are 2 servings. Who drinks half a can of coke and goes, "I'm full."
  • Daily fat intake should be no more than 30%
  • 4 Grams (or less ) of saturated fat in an entree, and 2 grams in side dishes.
  • Trans fats are just bad.
  • Keep the daily total of sodium under 2300. Main meals should have less than 600 milligrams, and side dishes 400 milligrams
  • 25-35 grams of fiber per day.

Do NOT Overdo it

Its easy to think that “If 1 is good, then 10 must be great.” Well we can't do that with exercise or we will hurt ourselves. Slow and steady increases with your exercise is the way to go.  Always consult your doctor before starting an exercise program.

I felt so good about my current weight loss that I went from walking at 4 mph to running at 7 mph. I spent the rest of the day wishing my knee would “pop.” I went too far to quickly.

Christmas  Shopping Weight Loss Tips
1. Eat before you go to the mall, but go to the mall (you don't burn calories shopping online).
2. Notice what you will be having for lunch (in your fridge)
3. Park way out in the parking lot and enjoy the walk in (and out).
4. Bring carrots, power bars, or something if you know you will be out all day.
5. If you fall of “the wagon” (and have something “not so good”) do NOT throw away the day and go, “Well since I had a burger I might as well eat ice cream too.”
6. Remember the food you have waiting for you at home. You may have made yourself hungry with all the walking around. Don't fall prey to easy fast food. You've got great food at home.

Lastly, science is once again saying they have found the cure to weight loss. Will they never learn. YOU are the key to weight loss.
