Weightloss

Decisions, decisions.

People have been asking me how I lost the weight for almost three years now. “What’s my secret?” They say. The secret is that there is no secret.  It’s plain and simple: buckle down, drastically change your lifestyle, and maintain. No slim fast, no silly crash diets. I’m also anti-nutrisystem, weight watchers, detox/fasting solutions. Although I know people who have successfully lost weight with methods like these, all of them gained back what they lost…and sometimes more. This is undoubtedly because these systems are impossible to uphold for an extended period of time.  Try to build a healthy lifestyle that you can maintain by eating a balanced diet and working out consistently. This is not to say that these methods won’t work for some, but that to maintain a healthy weight you must move past your initial weight loss solution and make a lifestyle change.
