Everyone is always asking me how I lose weight. Whether it’s after losing 5 lbs. when I need to, or after losing weight after my babies are born, I typically go with the same formula that has always worked for me. I may not be telling you a new diet trick, but it is the one that works for me. I’m not a nutritionist or any type of health professional, but health is very important to me and my family. I have educated myself by reading a lot on health. We just celebrated New Years and weight seems to really be on people’s minds lately.
So, what is this magical formula that has helped me lose weight? It’s not so magical – diet and exercise. I have always struggled with the diet part a lot more than the exercise part. I love chocolate and pizza and all the fancy coffees of the world, so it has always been tough for me. The thing I finally got through my head was the fact that it is okay to enjoy these things…in moderation. Everything in moderation. I’ve also read that mixing up your diet is one of the best ways to lose weight when you are in a rut. After having my son, my weightless just seemed to hit a brick wall. I was exercising every day but was no longer losing weight. When I read this, I quickly changed up my diet (even though I was eating relatively healthy) to even healthier changes and I ate different foods. Some of my favorite quick and easy meals are Progresso soups. I love the varieties they offer and at only 100 calories per serving, you just can’t beat it.
So, basically my little trick is to eat healthy, exercise regularly and mix up your diet every few weeks. I try to do this about once a month. Every time I feel like I’ve been eating too many salads and not enough grilled veggies, I switch it up. It really does help, so if you’re stuck in a rut, give it a try. In the meantime, Publix has an amazing coupon for Progresso soups!

I love eating soup! Yesterday I made a pot of home-made chicken noodle soup. But as I don’t always have the time to whip up healthy meals every day, Progresso Soup would be a great option – especially for lunch. I’d love to try their New England Clam Chowder, and Chicken and Dumplings!

Progress Is Delicious when using Progresso soups in the New Year. They offer a healthy alternative for lunches and dinners. They are satisfying and full and can be used in dishes to help make you even more full. We are looking forward to using Progresso New England Clam Chowder to make our New Year delicious!
Clam chowder has always been my favorite, but I tend to stay away from crazy soups, this would be a great way to have some again!
Laurajj Jacobson says
Oh I would love to try the New England Clam Chowder! Always a favorite of mine…love the low calories! Great for my new years resolution to learn to cook healthier for my family. Oh I have so much to learn!

Love, love Progresso soup. My favorite is chicken with noodles, but I also love the chicken and rice. Yesterday I picked up Chicken with barley because Wal-Mart had it on sale and I haven’t tried that one.

Soups are probably one of the most overlooked sources of food when wanting to lose or maintain weight. Except cream soups. Definitely want to avoid those yummy ones on a diet. 😉
Great post, Logan.
