It’s that wonderful time of the year again! We’re less than a week out from Thanksgiving, so I wanted to spend most of this journal entry talking about strategies to use to enjoy the holiday without self-sabotaging my weight loss this year. Hopefully this will help you out, too!
In this week’s video – recorded live from one of our local parks – I babble about how our bodies tend to try and get rid of weight if we stay out of their way. I think I probably have talked or written about this before, but it keeps coming to mind. Once a person is 50+ lbs overweight, our bodies actively start trying to lose some of that weight/fat. We aren’t meant to be that obese, and our bodies try to find a balance. If we reduce the amount of food we take in by a couple hundred calories, our weight will melt off. It’s almost like magic.
Tracking helps so much with this! Knowing how much you normally eat makes it easier to find something to trim out of what you normally eat. Knowing that can make all the difference, and allows you to stop run-away eating, too!
Make sure you watch ’til the end of the video, so you can see how big our puppy Myles is now!
