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!
