I think I found my secret!

Saturday, July 30, 2011

My goal is to lose 20 pounds in 20 weeks. I am on week 2 and so far I have lost 1 pound.

I was 138 last Sunday and wanted to be 137 this Sunday. But, I don't see that happening since I just weighed myself and was 138.6.

But, the good news is that I have figured out my secret.

On Wednesday I weighed myself and I was 141. I was like, "WHAT?!?"

I know it wasn't actually pounds...but I started thinking about what I had been doing this past week. I have stayed consistent with my turbofire, have not missed one workout.

So, guess what it is? EATING!

I tried an experiement.

Have you heard the saying, "Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a queen, and dinner like a pauper." ??? Well, I thought to myself, I wonder if I eat most of my calories before dinner and have a really light dinner if I will see a change in the scale?

Guess what? It worked!!!

So, this week's goal is to continue with my turbofire workouts! Really proud of myself for working out 2 weeks straight, 6 days a week. AND, eat my lightest meal at night. Which will be a struggle for me because that is when I am my hungriest. I even have healthy snacks in between meals to curb my hunger. But I think being hungriest at dinner is more out of habit. Mind over matter. Because the other night when I tried my experiment, I was REALLY hungry. But I made myself eat something small. And you know what? It satisfied me! I wasn't stuffed when I got done, but I wasn't starving either. AND I felt good that I diciplined myself through it.

So that, is my secret. Everyone is different. I am going to experiement with this secret all this week and see what the scale says next weekend.

    I saw one lady that said she decided to switch things up. She ate dinner for breakfast and breakfast for dinner. Her husband said he had trouble getting up to the smell of fish in the morning, but other wise he loved it, and if it made his wife happy and healthy, he could put up with the fish smell.
