I am getting really tired of struggling with my weight. I have been consistently going to the gym for over a month and am not really seeing a weight loss nor have I seen a huge increase in appetite. How is that possible? I’ve considered posting pictures and my actual weight so that might motivate me to lose weight and keep it off. After much thought I’ve decided the first thing I’m going to do is cut out my sugary drinks. I wrote about the side effects of diet sodas and how it was affecting me. So I basically switched from diet soda to regular. If I’m not drinking soda I’m making sweet tea or kool aid for the kids. The weight I had lost came back pretty quickly.
So now I’m going to have to go off of all the fully sugared drinks and sodas. Beginning today. I have already had 2 large glasses of water and a large glass of unsweet tea. I can do this. I Have To Do This. I want this extra weight gone. I just turned 43 in January and let me tell you it’s not as easy to get that weight off as it used to be. But I know it can be done. I love watching the Biggest Loser and seeing how successful those people are. It does inspire me to eat better while I’m watching it. We eat pretty healthy here. There are always ways to improve our eating. But to start with I’m going to end my love of soda. It stops now. It’s better for me and my body. Have you tried any new dieting strategies? Would you consider diet aids like red cell press? I’m too chicken to put something I’m not sure of in my body. I know of people who have lost weight using diet aids. Did you? I’d love to hear your weight loss success stories to keep me motivated. Please share them with me in the comments!
