Would you consider yourself overweight? If you answered yes, let me ask you another question. Are you trying to lose weight? A lot of people get discouraged if their weight loss goals don't happen right away. In fact, many people quit their efforts too soon because the pounds are slow to come off. While ridding your body of excess weight of 20 or more pounds may be ideal, even shedding 5 pounds will be beneficial to your body. Imagine carrying a 5 lb bag of flour around all day every day. Now, imagine the joy of not carrying it. Today, I want to help you recognize and celebrate the small victories along the way. When you do, you will be motivated to keep going.
Yesterday, our neighbor Nicoli brought us a basket of green tomatoes. I knew immediately what I wanted to do with them. If and when I want something fried, it will usually be fried green tomatoes. This is a “healthy-ish” tapas that’s perfect when you want light bite.
Last week I did a blog on mistakes people make that might hinder their weight loss. I touched on the concept of dieting, eating the wrong kinds of salad, eating too much of a good thing and depriving yourself of special treats. Today, I want to continue with that theme and share 5 more things that could be preventing you from getting results. If any of these pertain to you, just work on improving. You should be striving for progress, not perfection. Here's to loving the incredible body of yours!
