Easy Weight Loss - Eating ... Gaining Weight ... 2 Powerful Ways to Control the Urge to Splurge

I confess: I'm completely addicted to Pringles. My determination weakens every time I think about munching into one, hearing the crunch, and getting that first taste of its yummy flavor. Pure heaven. Although you don't flip over chips, probably there's another food that lures you into the refrigerator or the pantry cabinet. According to one study, 97% of women (compared to 68% of men) experience cravings on food.

Try to control the number of food cravings you experience.

How do you control these urges that drag you in an intoxicated shape away from your diet plan and down into the swirling vortex of pleasure? I researched on the topic to give you expert advice on how to enjoy that art called eating without turning in into a feeding frenzy. Read on - and never again feel guilty about eating a chocolate chip cookie.

 

To reach the same result by getting the needed calcium intake from food, rely on skim milk and yogurt. Sounds a bit difficult for all lactose intolerant? Try some calcium-fortified foods or juices like cheese and calcium-filled orange juices. If you don't feel you can get sufficient calcium from food, make up the difference using a supplement of calcium carbonate or calcium citrate.

 

How about something relaxing? When you're anxious, the body produces more of the hormone cortisol, which may increase the amount of carbohydrates you want to eat. Sweets or carbohydrates temporarily increase our levels of serotonin, making us feel calm and relaxed.

Thus, one way of helping curb your sweet tooth, rent some videos, text your funniest friends, or schedule a spa weekend. Why not have a bit of chocolate once in a while? When you begin including small amounts of these forbidden foods into your diet, a funny thing happens: You don't crave them anymore.

 

Distinguish specific cravings from hunger. Suppose you drive by a fast food outlet and all of a sudden, you develop a deep craving for French fries. Rather than rushing down the drive thru section, reassess your urge. Turn on your favorite music and switch your attention away from the fries idea. Suppose, on the other hand, you feel the need to satisfy not the urge but your hunger, select an apple pie or salad as a substitute.

 

2) Cut Hundreds of Calories.

Sure you can cut on hundreds of calories on what you eat every day! How? By making the appropriate choices on replacing high-calorie to low-calorie foods, such as cheese, creams, whole milk, butter, etc. Here are easy tricks to keep you cooking and eating minus the calories.

 

* When cooking, use nonstick pan to eliminate the use of butter and/or oil.

* Remove the fat from the meat.

* Remove the skin of chicken before serving.

* Use butter-flavored seasoning on vegetables instead of sprinkling butter.

* For casseroles, desserts and sauces, use evaporated skim milk (12 cal./tbsp.) instead of heavy cream (51 cal./tbsp.)

* Cook stews and other casseroles ahead of time. Refrigerate. Remove congealed fat before serving.

* Choose real orange (71 cal.) over an orange juice (90 cal./6 oz).

* For snacks, low-calorie fruits (cucumbers, asparagus, carrots, apples, pickles) are good replacements for crackers and breads.

* Use bottled chocolate extract for milk shakes instead of sweetened cocoa.

* Use two egg whites (34 cal.) for cakes instead of one egg (82 cal.).

* Choose diet margarine (50 cal.) instead of the regular margarine (100 cal.).

* Choose cereals with the least calories then add fresh fruits to be more nutritious.

* In parties, good substitutes for snacks are carrot strips, pickle slices, and raw mushroom caps.

* Drip away fats by cooking hamburgers on the rack.

* Avoid chips with dips.

 

Staying in healthy shape depends on the right attitude. So how strong is your will power to control the urge?

Weight Loss Essentials

 

Your weight increased a little during winter or at the time of a change of life or a difficult period... Result : you don't feel comfortable with your body, and the loss of a few pounds would make you feel better. Here are some tips to lose weight without false notes...

 

Specific Skin Type - More than anything else, sun protection will help to prevent the aging of your skin, The sun is largely responsible for wrinkling, blotchy pig entation (Lentigines, also called "liver spots"), thinning of the skin, broken blood vessels (telangectasias), dryness, texture changes, uneven color and some sun related skin diseases that make the skin look older.

 

If you do not have any physical exercise today, there is no need starting to workout like crazy, but a daily walk or a little swimming each week can already make a big difference.

 

Your weight loss success depends from two conditions : you must change your food habits AND increase your physical activity. Caution! If you need to loose 10 pounds or more, consult a doctor or a dietician because a regular follow-up is indicated.

 

Some weight loss principles

Losing weight is based on a few solid principles :

* Give yourself at least a month to lose 4 to 6 pounds

* Always prevent hunger and tiredness

* Stick to your plan and rules fixed at the beginning

* Avoid deficiencies in vitamins and minerals

* Don't use diet drugs or weight loss foods

* Eating must stay a pleasure

 

Set your rules and stick to them

To change your food habits, it is necessary to moderately reduce your caloric intakes, i.e. initially the fat content and fast sugars. It is absolutely necessary to respect good food practices by adding some simple rules to it.

 

* Don't skip meals, especially breakfast which must remain copious. Have a light evening meal ;

* Don't eat apart from your meals. If you feel hungry between meals, drink a large glass of water, a coffee or a tea without sugar. Also drink before your meal and in the middle of your meal;

* Use starchy foods with each meal : pasta, rice, potatoes or bread. You will get a feeling of satiety and procure the energy you need, with fibres as well. On the other hand you should avoid all that accompanies them like fatty sauces, butter, cheese, etc.

 

Just consume these starchy foods alone or with a sugar or fat free seasoning;

* Don't consume sugared beverages

* Don't drink alcohol or beer although one glass of red wine a day is ok.

* Avoid eating outdoor because it is more difficult to control your food. In some restaurants it is possible, but being invited by friends makes it a lot harder.

 

If you share a good meal with other people, decrease your quantity of food and never have a second serve.

* Choose lean meats and privilege poultries without skin, fish and shellfish ;

* Attention with hidden fats : avoid meat prepared with sauces, fat pork deli's, cheese toppings, butter or cream, gruyere and eggs, fried foods, viennese buns and pastry, sweets and chocolate, ice-cream, and aperitif snacks;

* Eat vegetables at will and alternate the preparation: raw, cooked and as soup;

* Have two fruits a day, but not more

 

Choose the right cooking mode for your food

* Meat: roasted or grilled

* Fish: roasted, tinfoil cooked in the oven or microwave

* Make your seasonings and sauces as light as possible: use a little oil, butter or cream, then use lemon, yoghourt, a stock cube and soya sauce, finally season at taste with aromatic herbs and spices.

 

Determination above all !

While complying with these nutritional rules, to lose weight it is wise choosing the right energy foods. It is thus useful to be informed about the nutritional value of food. It's up to you to stay motivated and not to yield to temptations. The first week will be the most difficult one, but when you notice that you lost 2 pounds already, you will keep going. Small variations during your weight loss period are allowed as long as they are exceptional. You will need to find the right balance without falling into food obsession or frustration. If you don't find this balance you will probabely start to nibble impulsively after which you will feel guilty and deprive you from any food and ... fall into a totally unproductive cycle compared to your weight loss objective!

Top 10 Ways to Jump Start Your Weight Loss

1. Eat protein at every meal, including breakfast.

2. Eliminate wheat- and flour-based products for the time being. And yes, that definitely includes bread and pasta.

3. Eat unprocessed foods. Ninety percent of what you eat should be a combination of (in this order of importance) raw vegetables, steamed vegetables, whole grains, lean protein, and maybe a few fruits if necessary.

4. Reduce starch to one portion a day, and don't eat that portion during your evening meal. Best choices are beans, sweet potatoes, and oatmeal.

5. Don't overdo fruit: one a day maximum, and only the low-sugar, high-fiber variety. Apples, pears, plums and berries all are good choices. For now, fruit should be eaten alone or with something light, like low fat nuts. Lose the fruit juice completely.

6. Reduce or eliminate dairy for the time being, especially cow's milk. Exceptions: reasonable amounts of low sugar, fat free yogurt.

 

7. Lose the booze. Despite what the "studies" say, you lose no health benefits by giving up alcohol (including wine). There is nothing essential in alcohol that you can't get in fruits and vegetables without all the bad side effects that go along with it.

8. Stop using vegetable oils such as sunflower, safflower and corn. The supermarket kind is highly refined, and it oxidizes easily when heated, contributing to arterial plaque. Use olive oil instead, and apply it to food after the food is cooked when possible.

9. Watch which types of fat you're eating. The amount of fat you eat is probably less important than the kind of fat you eat. The worst are fried foods, margarine and foods that contain hydrogenized or partially hydrogenized oils. The best is omega-3, found in fish and flaxseed oil.

10. Obsessively drink water: At least 8 ounces for every 20 pounds of bodyweight you're now carrying around, each day. Every day. No excuses.

50 Motivational Tips for Exercise and Weight Loss

 

No matter who we are, we all have days when we just do not feel like exercising. The weather might be grey, you've had a busy day, or you might just be bored with your program. Whatever the reason, you just don't feel like it!

 

It's on these days that we need that extra motivation. I've been exercising regularly for most of my life so I've had plenty of those days. To get me through, I've compiled a list of tactics to help motivate me.

 

Read something inspiring!

It could be a biography, quote, poem, or song. Use other people's experiences to give you that lift.

 

Start a walking group!

It's more social and you all get to feed off the motivation of each other.

 

Think of exercise as a menu rather than a diet!

Make a list of activities and choose 1 each day.

 

Use a training journal!

By keeping track of your activities you can see the improvements in your fitness week to week.

 

Start an interest or hobby that requires physical fitness!

It could be bushwalking, rock-climbing, tennis, golf, or scuba-diving. If you require physical fitness to enjoy the activity you will be more inclined to train for it.

 

Increase your incidental activity!

This is the amount of activity you do in your normal course of your day, the activity not generally classed as exercise. You could: walk to work, take the stairs instead of the elevator, get up to change the channels instead of using the remote, or play with the kids for 15 minutes per day.

 

Try cross-training!

If your exercise program is always the same then break it up with one session per week of swimming, bike riding, jogging, sprints, or circuits. You could even play a different sport and use it as a training session.

 

Use a Personal Trainer!

Personal trainers can provide motivation as well as training variety.

 

Use an exercise video!

If exercising in public places is not for you, then try training at home. There are many forms of training available on video including: boxing, aerobics, pilates, and yoga.

 

Just start!

You will always be able to find excuses not to train so don't think about it, just walk out the door.

 

Listen to music!

Put on the stereo or use a walk-man. Music certainly helps the time go faster.

 

Watch TV!

Most fitness centers currently have a cardio theatre where you watch your favorite shows whilst you work out.

 

Read about the benefits of exercise!

We all know that exercise is good for us but do you know why it is? Reading a reputable publication on exercise can inform you of the great ways exercise can improve your life. It's more than just being able to walk up those stairs!

 

Don't complicate things, make it simple!

You don't have to find a fitness centre or join a Tai Chi group. Just find a nice park and go for a walk or run.

 

Create a list of reasons you want to be healthy and read it regularly!

It may be to improve health, play with the kids, or trek through India. Whatever the reasons write them down.

 

The Best Body Building/Weight Loss Supplements - Athlete's Testimony about the benefits of Creatine

 

Creatine has become mainstream back in 90's and now it's evolving to even a more potent supplement. It can help you gain lean muscle mass and indirectly help you lose body fat. Here are some commons questions and answers about creatine. *Exactly what is creatine anyway? Creatine is a compound that occurs naturally in the human body or taken as a dietary supplement. The scientific term for Creatine is methyl guanidine-acetic acid. Creatine is composed of three amino acids - Glycine, Methionine, and Arginine. The human liver has the ability to combine these three amino acids and produce creatine. The other way we get creatine is from our diet/supplements.

 

*How does creatine help with exercise? Human muscles use ATP (adenosine tri-phosphate) for anaerobic exercise (short burst exercises such as weight training). During anaerobic exercise ATP is broken down into two simpler chemicals inorganic phosphate and ADP (adenosine di-phosphate). This process of ATP breaking down into ADP releases the energy which gives your muscles the ability to contract. ATP stores only remain adequate for 10-15 seconds of maximum exertion however. After the ATP stores are exhausted the muscle will no longer be able to perform at maximum exertion.

 

Taking creatine supplements can create more fuel for the body through the following process. Most of the creatine stored in the skeletal muscle bonds with phosphorus (also stored in the muscles) which becomes creatine phosphate. Creatine phosphate then bonds to excess ADP stores (which would be otherwise useless) which creates ATP energy stores. Hence taking creatine will create more fuel for your muscles!

 

*Is creatine a prohormone/steroid? No. Creatine will not alter with your testosterone/estrogen levels the way prohormones can.

*What Creatine Ethyl Ester HCI? Creatine Ethyl Ester HCl is an exceptionally soluble creatine resulting in advanced absorption, increased bioavailability, and stability. Creatine ethyl ester directly penetrates the muscle cell resulting in 30 to 40 times more functional creatine.

*Chad's Testimony I am a mixed martial arts competitor (ultimate fighter) getting ready for my debut fight in November. To aid with my training regimen I have been supplementing Creatine Ethyl Ester. My goal was to pack on some lean muscle mass to increase my metabolism and at the same time become stronger and more powerful.

 

In late July I weighed in at 175 lbs and my bodyfat was measured at 9.5%. I then spent the next six weeks concentrating to a serious weight resistance regimen and began taking Creatine Ethyl Ester before and after my weight training. I immediately felt the effects of this supplement as I was able to complete more repetitions and lift heavier weight in the gym. Every week I became stronger as I started lifting heavier weight than ever before. I noticed increased muscle mass all over my body, especially in my legs.

 

After six weeks of intense weight training I decided to take another bodyfat test. I physically felt much bigger and was a little hesitant to hear what my bodyfat % was. However I was pleasantly surprised! I weighed in at 178 lbs. My body fat had actually dropped to 6.3%. The trainer explained that I lost 5lbs of body fat and gained an incredible 8lbs of muscle. He later commented to me "I don't need to write you a program....because whatever your doing....its definitely working."

 

As it turns out my metabolism increased dramatically through weight training. My muscle gains were due to a combination of a solid weight resistance program, plenty of rest, proper dieting and the use of the right bodybuilding supplements. Creatine Ethyl Ester gave me an extra push to help me realize my optimal lean muscle gains.

 

For anybody looking to lose fat and gain muscle I would recommend focusing on a weight program (cardio is also important but often over emphasized). There is no substitute for hard work in the gym, proper dieting and plenty of rest (this last one is a common problem among hard gainers). If you are training vigorously I would recommend taking supplements for optimal performance. Make sure you research the supplements you are taking and try to find the best price possible. So far the best bodybuilding/weight loss supplement store I've seen is www.discountanabolics.com. I found them to be much less expensive than GNC and their customer service is excellent. They also had quick product delivery; it only took a couple days for my order to show up on my doorstep. Their specific webpage for creatine ethyl ester is http://www.discountanabolics.com/page/DA/PROD/AX01

So you want to lose some weight? Here are 6 tips that will help you melt some body fat and lose some unwanted weight.

1. Throw away your scale

First off throw away your scale (okay don't literally do that). You naturally gain and lose weight throughout the day due to slight changes in your metabolism and how well hydrated you are. Body weight is not always an accurate measure of a healthy body composition. Instead you should focus on your body fat percentage.

 

There are many inexpensive tools available to measure your body fat. Many electronic scales now come with electronic body fat measurements. These can be fairly accurate although they can have up to have 25% margin of error depending on your hydration levels (and if your taking supplements). If possible visit your local gym to get a body fat test. The caliper test (pinch test) can be very accurate. Also ask about getting your basal metabolism measured. Your basal metabolism is how many calories your body burns a day at rest. There are now many devices such as bodygem that accurately measure this.

 

2. Get off the treadmill and hit the weights

Unless you train cardio like Lance Armstrong you must do weight resistance exercise if you want effectively lose weight (i.e. bodyfat). The obvious goal of resistance exercise is to gain more lean muscle mass. One pound of lean muscle burns up to 50 calories a day in comparison to one pound of fat which burns around 9 calories a day. If you are able to gain 10lbs of lean muscle mass you will be burning an additional 500 calories a day. At this rate you will lose 4 lbs of bodyfat a month.

 

Don't get me wrong about cardio; I think it is also extremely important for your weight loss program. It also has a benefit list about a mile long from decreasing your chances of heart disease to lowering depression. However you must put your weight training program before cardio if you really want to lose body fat. If you are unfamiliar with weight training exercises it may be a good idea to hire a personal trainer to get you acquainted with the gym. Also try subscribing to magazines such as Men's Health and Shape which often write beginner programs for people looking to start weight training programs.

 

If you are woman and are afraid of "bulking up" please repeat after me, "I will not become bulky from weight training". This is perhaps the single biggest misconception that women have about weight training. This is due to the fact "bulking up" requires certain anabolic hormones that occur in much high percentages in men. Unless you are a female body builder taking steroids your chances of bulking up are slim to none. Weight training will only leave you with a toner, slimmer better figured physique. Interesting fact: Hollywood legend Marilyn Monroe lifted weights.

 

3. Mix it up

Fitness professionals use the fancy term "periodization" for adding variety in workouts. Periodization is a strategy to keep your body from hitting plateaus in training. A suggested cycle would look like this.

 

-Phase 1:

4-6 weeks of heavy resistance exercise (6-12 reps per set). Please limit cardio to 1-2 days week. Yes I do mean only 1 to 2 days a week of light cardio. Intense cardio can inhibit your weight training efforts to put on more lean muscle mass for the end goal of a higher metabolism.

 

-Phase 2:

4-6 weeks of moderate weight training/cardio. This phase is when you already built up some muscle. Now is the time to add some cardio on top of your elevated metabolism to reduce fat stores. Your week should have 3 days of cardio workouts and 3 days of resistance exercise.

 

-Phase 3:

1-3 weeks of mostly cardio and some weight training. You should be doing 5 days of cardio and 2 days of full body weight training.

After this cycle is complete repeat back to Phase 1.

 

3. Your Diet

This is probably the most confusing and misrepresented component of health weight loss. I've decided to break it down to a few key points

 

-Eat 5-6 small meals a day. Eating the traditional diet of 3 meals a day will inhibit your weight loss goals for several reasons. When you go past 4 hours without a meal your blood sugar levels begin to drop. When you finally do eat your insulin levels spike which encourages your body to store more calories as fat. You are also much more likely to binge which pushes your stomach out further and leaves only more hungry for the next meal

 

-Eat whole grains, fiber and veggies. Okay I know you've probably heard that million times. But complex carbs (not sugars), fiber and good fats (peanut butter) are crucial for your weight loss regimen. If you really miss your tasty fatty foods allow yourself one day a week where you can eat whatever you want. If you break this rule you will end up just cheating yourself.

 

-Drink up! Not only does water help your body recover quicker and keeps your skin looking healthy but it can help you burn more calories too. How? Try drinking ice cold water. It requires more energy from your body to warm up and will help you burn some additional calories.

 

4. Get to bed!

I know sleep is becoming a more of a luxury in modern day America. But not getting a full night of sleep (6-8 hours for adults) can make you fat! Here are a few reasons why:

 

First is lack of sleep interferes with your body's natural mechanisms from recovering from a workout. Remember that when exercise you are only creating an opportunity to get in shape. The final hours of a good night's sleep is when your body releases growth hormones to rebuild you're broken down muscle tissue. If you cheat yourself out of those last couple of hours of sleep you're cheating yourself out of gains from the hard workout earlier.

 

Lack of sleep can also throw off other hormones that regulate your metabolism and fat storage. Studies have shown that sleeping less than 5 hours a night can reduce bloodstream leptin levels by 15% (slowing down metabolism) and increases ghrelin by 15% (increase appetite).

 

Lack of sleep will inevitably make you less motivated to hit the gym because you are already fatigued! You want to be as well rested as possible before any workout. Get some sleep!

 

5. Supplements can help

I'm not telling you to go out and down a bottle of ephedrine every day. Supplements are intended to exactly what their name entails...they supplement your weight loss program. If you are on a weight loss program you should be taking a multivitamin everyday.

There are some excellent weight loss supplements that can aid your weight loss efforts. If you can use these supplements responsibly I would recommend the following:

 

- V/M Multivitamin complete by ISS. This is complete multivitamin supplement that is fortified with antioxidants.

-Hot-Rox by Biotest - This non-ephedrine weight loss supplement can help increase your basal metabolism rate.

-Lipo 6 by Nutrex - This supplement works to reduce your appetite. It can be very effective.

-Lean System 7 by iSatori - This is a very potent weight loss product.

-Myoplex Whey Protein by EAS - It is crucial to up your protein intake to gain more lean during resistance training.

I have experimented (and been ripped off a few times) with several supplement stores. I found GNC was the most accessible but way too expensive. So far the company I have been most pleased with is Rocky Mountain Sports Nutrition. They offer the best selection of bodybuilding supplements and weight loss products. When it came to prices and customer service their business was second to nobody. Check them out at www.discountanabolics.com.

Weight Loss Plateaus -- 7 Easy Steps to Overcome It

Have you ever experienced this scenario before?

"I have successfully lost 15 of the 25 pounds that I want to lose, but now I am stuck at the same weight even though I am faithfully controlling my food intake and doing my exercises. What happened? Is the diet not working anymore?" Yes, many women over 40 start off their weight loss programs full of excitement and determination, and indeed you do see the pounds dropping off over the first few weeks.

 

1) Take Charge of Your Eating Habits.

It appears to be impossible for humans like us, but if you psyche yourself and develop fewer cravings, then slowly you'll submit to fewer cravings. According to one study of nearly 500 women, researchers found that women who received a daily 1, 200 milligram calcium supplement reduced their number of premenstrual food cravings by 54%.

 

That's great, of course.

However, the next thing you know is that your progress has come to a dead stop...

...and you have just hit the dreaded weight loss "plateau." But don't despair -- you are _not_ the only one experiencing this. Hitting a plateau is a common experience for most women over 40 on a weight loss program. And it can be one of the most de-motivating things to happen. Thankfully, overcoming it is easy... IF you know the simple steps you can take. Today, I'm going to show you some very simple and specific steps you can take to overcome your plateaus:

 

1. Be careful of the little things: It's easy to lapse into complacency over time, so I suggest that you keep a food diary. Writing down what you eat each day can help you to spot those times when you might be taking in more food than you realize. A little snack here and there can (and will) add up to a lot of extra calories.

 

2. It may not be the food: Sometimes, it's not the food per se that is the cause of the plateau. For example, work or family stress may be the culprit instead. Stress can cause you to want to go dig into that tub of chocolate ice cream. If you are feeling stressed, it's important to acknowledge it right now, and go find some other forms of relief other than reaching out for more (typically unhealthy) food. Go take a walk, listen to music or play with your dog instead!

 

3. Start off on the right foot: You got to eat something for breakfast every day. Not only will you start the day with your stomach feeling satisfied, eating breakfast actually kick starts your metabolism so that you'll burn more calories throughout the day.

 

4. Eat more often: Instead of eating 3 big regular meals each day, opt to have 5 smaller meals. After you eat, your body releases the hormone insulin, which causes your body to store fat. The larger the meal, the more insulin your body releases. But smaller, more frequent meals keep insulin levels lower and more stable. The less insulin you have in your blood, the more fat you burn, and the less you store.

 

5. Try water first: If you're feeling "hungry," try drinking a glass of water first before you go grab something to much on. Sometimes we confuse thirst for hunger, and end up eating more food unnecessarily. If the water doesn't make that hunger pang go away, you can always grab something to eat later. And the bonus is that the water would have helped you to feel fuller, so you don't have to eat as much!

 

6. Avoid snacks at night: After you've had your dinner, do not snack or eat supper. And never ever eat just before you go to bed. Take it from Oprah -- she says that one of her secrets to her successful weight loss is that she does not eat anything after 7:30pm... not even a grape.

 

7. Try a weekly one-day "cleanse": Choose 1 day in the week to cleanse your system by taking only vegetable juices. And please use fresh vegetable juices if you can, and avoid the canned stuff that are chock-full of sodium or added sugars!

Apply these 7 simple steps and you too will be able to overcome those plateaus easily.

Weight Loss Formula - For most of my life, or at least as long as I can remember, I have been overweight. No let me rephrase. I have been fat. Yes, fat. Not just a little overweight, not big boned, not plus sized or comfortably large. Not weight challenged or in need of loosing a few pounds.

Weight Loss Hypnosis - Weight-loss is one of those things that most people consider at some time in their life. Trying to find the best diet or the most efficient type of exercise seems to be a never-ending job. Initially it may seem that the desire to find the ideal weight loss program is all about looking good to others, this may be true but in reality it should be all about your own feelings of self worth and that relates to more than just your appearance.

As I'm surfing the tube, I notice a huge amount of weight loss infomercials. And you know what, most of them literally make me sick to my stomach. Not because I despise TV, but because I can't stand it when companies blatantly lie to unsuspecting consumers and make MILLIONS in the process doing it.

You need to plan your finances, organize time off from work, get a visa, book accommodation, the list goes on.

Weight Loss Maintenance - A quote from Nelson Mandela illustrates this in showing you that you are an AWESOME child of God. I look at this quote each and every day when I do my energy circles. I encourage you to print this and tape it somewhere so that you see it everyday.

Weight Loss Operation - "There goes Godzilla" and I was stunned to see the neighbourhood children point and run as I glared at them. I knew that I was plump, but Godzilla, I rushed in dumped all the groceries at the door and checked my self out in the mirror. I mean...after a long time, really checked myself in the mirror.
