I was doing the wrong things.
I tried calorie restriction. I tried meal replacements. Nothing felt good or sustainable.
I adopted habits that I was told were healthy: “eat more whole grains”, “eat 6 small meals a day”.
Substitute artificial sweeteners for sugar, right? Wrong! I was thinking that it was doing something good for me. It made sense. But all the while, I was constantly thinking about food, and what my next snack would be.
It was exhausting! I even gained weight while on the Tour de Mont Blanc. How??
Since then, I learned healthy dietary and mindset tools and have maintained a 40-pound weight loss.
I want to share these life-changing tools with you.
There is still room for chocolate.
Through a shift in mindset and a complete change to my approach to eating, I was able to lose the weight and keep it off.
I created an eating plan for myself that I enjoy and maintain to this day.
In fact, I was able to achieve a weight 10 pounds lower then when I started college.
Who knew that was possible?
Since achieving my weight loss goal, I am working on maintenance.
It’s not hard, but it does require a plan and some attention. This is the key!
And, as you can see in the above photo, I still make room for a little chocolate!
I’m now enjoying steady lower weight, and I know I have the tools to maintain this. I wish I knew these skills all those years I was struggling. I'm excited to share them with you!
If you have been struggling with weight, I would love to help you end your struggle for good!
