FMM: Weight-Loss Tips

 

  • I put my fork down more often between bites.
  • I limit my salt intake…especially in the days approaching weigh-in day. 😉
  • I do weight training…not just cardio.  And floor exercises are a big part of my workouts too.
  • I eat more veggies than fruit, but I eat both.
  • I weigh and measure everything at home.
  • I don’t eat everything on my plate just because it’s there.  I am no longer a member of the “Clean Plate Club,”  and that’s okay with me.
  • I drink water regularly because I’ve recognized that sometimes when I feel hungry, I’m thirsty.  It also helps to curb my appetite, giving my brain time to recognize that I’m satisfied.

I may not be an expert, but doing these things has helped me in the past.  And they help now too.  Now it’s your turn to share your tips!  Don’t forget to come back and link up in the comments!  And if you have questions, share those too.  I bet someone here will have an answer for you.  Happy Monday friends!
