Lauren Lost 175 Pounds in Two Years
Lauren, a powerhouse of a woman who’d always let food control her. She’d struggled with her weight most of her life, dieting, and then bingeing, and never managed to keep off the weight. She struggled with foot and knee injuries that prevented her from exercising and kept her from getting healthy. Then she attended a weight loss retreat, and truly began to learn how to deal with her emotional binge eating. It was there that she finally learned how to let food fuel her and not to control her.
It took her two years, but she’s dropped an incredible 175 pounds. For the first time she felt comfortable in her own skin .She felt free and she love herself more these days. The secret to Lauren’s success is a mix of weight-lifting and eating right. This girl is unreal. Not only did she lose all this weight, but she’s a power lifter
Lauren’s workout regimen means she doesn’t eat light .She eats around 2,000 calories a day. Breakfast is an egg-white breakfast burrito, lunch is a salmon salad, and dinner is a stir fry, and she enjoys Joy’s greens in a glass for a post-workout snack.
If you are trying to lose weight write down what you eat. It will really help you. Remember that you don’t have to be perfect to lose weight. If you get off track, you just get right back on. Don’t let yourself sabotage the rest of the day or week or month. It’s like getting a flat tire, you fix it and move on, and you don’t poke holes in the rest of your tires. Set non-weight-related goals to build your confidence. Sometimes the scale will not be your friend, so you should set goals that are within your control: Sign up for a 5K, start a food journal or blog and commit to it, ditch the diet soda, have a four-day-a-week walking goal. Declare the goal, reach it and set another.
Speak kindly to yourself. Expecting perfection is setting yourself up for failure. When you allow yourself to be imperfect and not beat yourself up, you will find it easier to make the right choices.
Sometimes the hardest part of making a big change is getting motivated. It also takes a lot of willpower, strength, and the desire to never give up. These qualities are very essential if you are looking for weight loss.
