Resolution Day 9

Well today I had only lost  .4 of a pound, but that still puts me at 10.3 overall since starting my weight loss journey with Resolution by Total Life Changes.  I’m so happy that I have finally found what works for me and so many others!  I really do encourage you take a look, it’s well worth the little bit they are asking!  I’ve spent more than that on books trying to find the right diet.

But I did learn something today… I was letting myself fall below the 1200 calories, by more than 200 calories and was told to keep closer to the 1200 calories so that my body doesn’t try and go into starvation mode.  Wow, I don’t feel hungry so I figured that not eating 1200 (or somewhat close) would be a good thing.  So today I was more careful to get closer.  Today I reached 1096 calories and 12 cups of water along with a short 10 minute slow walk.   I feel great!

resolutionI don’t think I’ll go into a lot of detail like I have the last eight days because I think you have the idea on how this product works.  If you are just now ready my blog about my journey, please go back to Resolution Drops – Day 1 and start there.

At first I thought about doing 5 days instead of 10, but after starting I knew 10 would be easy.  And today, I’ve decided I could easily do 20!!  The bottle is actually for 30 days, but I’ll take a short break after I reach 20 days.  I’ll take a break for 10, back on for 20, etc. until I reach my goal.  And I can tell you that know that I have Resolution, my goal is a lower weight than I considered before I started!

I didn’t have the opportunity to do my measurements today, so tomorrow morning I’ll do that and post my results.  But I can tell you, I’ve lost 1 pant size, from a size 20, back into my 18’s (loosely).   I think I could fit into my size 16’s but they’d be tight and uncomfortable… I’ll wait. me1smaller

Resolution Drops Day 3

Well today is even better than I had hoped for!  5 1/2 pounds down since beginning the journey with Resolution. Imagine my excitement!!

Resolution Drops Day 3

5:30 AM:  Took my 3 Techui, waited 15 minutes before using Resolution and then waited 15 minutes resolutionbefore eating.  Oh, and in case you’re wondering why I’m also taking the Techui, it’s 287 grams of protein to get me started in the morning, helps build muscle.  The Resolution does lots of wondering things for you, least of which is to control your appetite and help shed the fat from your stomach.

Breakfast was 3 egg whites (did you know that egg whites are only 25 calories?), sauteed mushrooms and spinach.  Tasted great!  and my total breakfast was only 103 calories (including the Techui)!!

10:00 AM:  Almost forgot my snack, the Techui and breakfast were very satisfying today.  Probably a combination of my body getting used to the changes in eating habits along with the 3 egg whites being more substantial in amount of food.

12:00 Noon:  Now up to 5 cups of water, wanted to be at 6 cups, but I need to wait because it’s time for me to take my Resolution.  Lunch consisted of 3 oz hamburger patty grilled, 1/2 cup cottage cheese.  Calories 278

I think I’ll try to up the calorie count closer to 400 tomorrow.  Feel a little hungry still, but not bad.  And since we are striving for a 400 calorie lunch, I can add a little something.  We’ll see.  I also made some dill dip for the afternoon snack so I’m not just eating plain veges.

I used 0% fat greek yogurt, added a little lemon juice, a little apple cider vinegar, a packet of Truvia and dill.  Just mix to your liking.  Easy to do and tastes good.

5:30 PM:  Dinner consisted of an iceberg salad with 2 radishes, 1/2 avocado with salt and pepper and 1 Grilled Chicken thigh, 1/2 cup green beans. Total calories 321

I’m feeling great, my total calorie count was less that 1000 calories today and I would never have thought I’d feel this good.  No hunger pangs, no low blood sugar attacks, no major cravings that I can’t handle.  Totally amazed because I never thought I’d make it through a day with cream in my coffee, bread or pasta.  I know, I’m only on day 3, but I seriously think this is pretty simple due to the Resolution.

Resolution – Day 2

Woke up to a beautiful day, weighed in at 3 1/2 pounds down! Excellent news and now even more excited than before I started!

Ok, Let’s Start Day 2 Resolution

resolution

 

Day 2:  Started out the morning with 3 capsules of Techui to get things going in the right direction.  Half hour later, I used 10 drops of Resolution, waited 15 minutes before eating or drinking anything.  I’m feeling ok, but looking forward to breakfast.

 

6:30 AM: Breakfast consisted of sauteed mushrooms and spinach in butter and 2 eggs scrambled.  It was great.  Amazing how much better healthy food tastes even after just 1 day without sugar and starches.   Calories for breakfast 211

9:30 AM: Snack time – 1/2 cup Greek yogurt followed a little later with 1/2 cup raw cauliflower.  Took 2 Iaso NRG and 8oz. of Iaso tea.  Feeling pretty good, a little hungry, but I know the NRG and Tea will take the edge off shortly.

Wondering if I’m going into too much detail, but then maybe someone else can use this to give them ideas and inspiration.  You never know.  I read that I could add a little Coconut oil to my coffee, will have to try that too.

In case you are wondering – The recommended daily 1200-calorie diet allows for a (200) calorie breakfast, (400) calorie lunch & dinner and two (100) calorie snacks throughout the day.   Enjoy (3) balanced meals each day consisting mostly of protein and vegetables, while limiting fruit serving sizes and excluding the starch category for the best results.  Yesterday I did 200 calorie lunch and that was ok, but I’ll up it today.  Yesterday’s dinner wound up being about 464 calories.  There is a list of menu options and ideas some sound pretty good, I’ll have to try and find the recipes.

For a person who couldn’t go through the day without a snack at work, I think I’m doing pretty well.

12 Noon:  Used Resolution, waited 15 minutes before eating.  Enjoyed 3 oz. grilled lean hamburger with 1 teaspoon of ketchup, 1/2 cup of cottage cheese and a glass of Iaso tea.

2:30 PM:  I feel a lot better after lunch today, don’t feel like I even need a snack.  I must have been craving the protein because I felt pretty hungry before lunch.  Enjoying remaining amount of cauliflower followed by 1/2 scoop of chocolate protein mixed in water with about 1/4 cup of skim milk.   I am now up to 8 cups of water.

5:15 PM:  Did my Resolution drops again, getting ready for dinner.  Salad with 1 tbsp Dill Sauce made from 0% fat greek yogurt for the dressing, 3 oz NY Steak and sauteed zucchini.  I feel quite full and happy. Not feeling deprived even though my dinner was approx. 300 calories.

I’ve got to say, that I’m quite surprised that I haven’t cheated, no cravings for sugar, although it would be great to have something salty and crunchy… Will have to check into what I can have to satisfy that craving.  But I’m doing good!

Well, another day down.  Can’t wait to see if I lost any more weight!

Until tomorrow… Enjoy your evening.

Potato lovers who want to lose weight can make a very delicious mashed potato substitute using cauliflower. Steam some cauliflower florets on your stovetop, mixing in some diced onions. When it’s tender, puree it, adding in chicken or vegetable stock and a bit of fresh pepper.

If you can manage to make exercise fun, you are sure to be much more successful in your journey to lose weight.

Get lots of sleep when working out. Normally, eight hours of sleep for an adult is recommended. If you are thinking that staying up is helping you drop pounds, you are wrong. Getting enough sleep recharges your metabolism so you are able to burn off fat during the day.

Consider splitting larger meals with friends when dining out. Many restaurants serve portions large enough for two people. Get two plates so you can easily split the meal in half. You’ll eat less and save money, too!

If you are working on a weight loss plan, you should try to weigh yourself every week. This helps you see how well you are doing! It is a good idea to record your progress on a chart. This will keep you motivated and makes it more likely that you will continue.

Getting a friend to join in on your weight loss journey can help you stay committed to your goals. A close family member or a friend that also wants to become more healthy keeps you from slacking off. Also, you can make working out and dieting fun with each other during the course of your diet.

Muscle burns many more calories than fat, approximately four times as many. The more muscle you have, the higher your natural calorie-burning ability is. Try strength training two or three times per week to strengthen your muscles.

Weight loss can be easier if you have some weight loss buddies to lose weight with. This allows you to gain more motivation at rough points during your program. When you make a commitment as a team it is harder to make excuses to eat the wrong thing or skip the workout.

To lose weight, you can try changing your diet to include more fruits and vegetables. It’s important to keep your plate as colorful as possible. Including many different color fruits and vegetables will keep you healthy, and help you to lose weight. This way, you will never be at a loss for vegetables and fruits to snack on.

Make sure your meals are in lower portions to improve your health. Eating smaller meals can help you lose weight and maintain that lower weight. This will help you not only look better but also feel better. In addition to having more energy you should have fewer problems with your health in the long run.

Weight Loss: Find Success And Lose Weight

Are you resolving to lose weight this New Years? Also like many, you have probably stared failure in the face more than once. You need to start succeeding instead of failing. Read along and you’ll get great ideas to help you with these things so you can be able to lose weight.

Eat breakfast everyday. Get your metabolism revved up first thing in the morning by getting some food in your right away. Eating a good breakfast every day will show your body that you don’t need to store your food as fat.

Skipping meals does not do the body any good when you are attempting weight loss. If you start to skip meals, you will have a greater tendency to make unhealthy food choices. You will also open yourself up to eating more than you need when you finally have a meal. As tempting as it may be to simply duck out on a few meals here and there, this tactic is actually counterproductive to a goal of weight loss.

One of the best ways to keep weight off is to avoid eating in the hours before bedtime. When you eat food at night, it will sit in your stomach and not burn off. Instead of snacking in the evenings, get out and get active; go for a walk or bike ride to get moving and get away from the fridge.

If you slip during your diet, don’t make a big deal out of it. You probably won’t be perfect. If you’ve slipped and eaten a little goodie, just do a little more exercise. However, if you cannot exercise, do not dwell on it. Dwelling on negativity takes your mind off your goal. Stay positive.

Cardiovascular exercise is the key to successful weight loss. Usually called “cardio,” these activities include bicycling, running, speed walking and other exercises that boost your heart rate. Fat burning is at its peak when you elevate your heart rate and it stays that way. It is optimal to run or ride the bike for at least two or three hours per week.

Pack your lunch for work. This helps you control your food and save money. Make sure to have something with lots of protein and also include fresh produce. Take snacks so you don’t go to vending machines.

Find a friend to join you in your journey. Having someone that desires getting fit can help with your motivation levels and keep you from slacking off. You can keep each other motivated and will also have a person to talk to when you’re trying to find out what works or not in your fitness routine.

To maintain good health, eat smaller meal portions. Research shows that eating smaller meals helps you maintain a healthier body. In return, you will feel better and look great. Your energy levels will improve, as should your overall health.

It’s common for most restaurants to offer foods that are high in fat, but if you ask the waiter to make some healthier substitutions, you’ll often find that they will be accommodating. Don’t be afraid to ask a server if they have something that’s more healthier than traditional sides like fries or potatoes.

Be sure to tell the world when you have decided you want to lose weight. Maybe writing a blog about this can help you out. This will help the whole weight loss process become more concrete in your mind so you will be less likely to drift off your chosen path.

Try to surround yourself with things that are different shades of blue. Unbeknownst to many, blue has been shown to subdue appetites. Having blue at your table where you eat can have an effect. The colors of red, orange and yellow can encourage eating, so dinnerware in these colors should be avoided. The visual elements that surround us have a greater influence on our eating habits than most people think. When you set the table or choose your clothing, keep color cues in mind.

Beans are a perfect choice when you are trying to shed pounds. Beans are high in both protein and fiber, and they are quite versatile. Make yourself some hummus or make a tasty bean salad. They can even be made into burgers. A great thing to do would be to get lentils and then have them on a sandwich.

Drinking at least eight glasses of water each day is an excellent tool to help your weight loss plan be successful. Drinking plenty of water keeps you from quenching your thirst with unhealthy, sugary sodas. Sugary drinks dramatically increase your calorie count, which makes it difficult to drop weight.

When you’re looking for a diet plan that can help you lose weight, consulting with a professional nutritionist is a great way to score useful advice. Since each person has a different body, what might have worked for someone else won’t always work for you. Get assistance to lose weight most effectively.

Today is the day to dedicate yourself to losing weight. Now you know how to get it done, so do it! This is the time for you to keep the resolutions you make, which will lead to a loss of weight and a feeling of accomplishment.

Weight Loss Tips So Simple You Can Start Today!

Losing weight can be a challenge, but if you follow through you’ll find yourself seeing the results you want. Here you will find suggestions for healthy weight loss and motivational advice to help you meet your goals.

Fitness is one major thing when it comes to losing weight. It is important to try to get 30 minutes every day. In order to get the fitness you need, find enjoyable activities that you are happy partaking in. This can also serve the purpose of helping you make new friends. These people could help keep you motivated, too.

When you are exercising to lose weight, make sure to focus on aerobics. Cardio exercise concentrates on elevating your heart rate for extended periods of time; this burns more fat than the stop-and-start efforts you get from resistance training. If an exercise raised your heart rate and keeps it high, it counts as cardio, so look for something entertaining that you’ll stick with.

Although it seems everyone loves french fries, it can wreck havoc on your diet. They are the downfall of many a potential weight loser. If you want to eat fries, try baking the fries. After slicing potatoes into 1/2″ strips, place in a bowl along with 1T of canola oil. Sprinkle with pepper, salt and other seasonings of your choice. Arrange the fries on a roaster pan or cookie sheet in just one layer and bake at 400 degrees in your oven for 30 minutes. Use a spatula to turn it and then continue baking for ten more minutes. They are good eaten with ketchup and are lower in fat, you will not even think about them being not being fried. This “French bake” recipe comes from Laurel’s Kitchen cookbook.

If you need to lose five pounds fast, drink a lot of water. If you cut down on the amount of food you eat and drink at least half a gallon of water a day for a week, you will lose water weight. You won’t lose a lot of fat, but it is a great way to lose weight fast.

A great tip that could help you in losing weight is to take multivitamins. When you diet, there are many foods that are rich in vitamins that you eliminate. Taking a multivitamin ensures you get all the essential vitamins your body needs.

Your focus should be on your health and not on weight loss. That might sound contradictory, but focusing on health first, will put positive thoughts in your head. If you just think about losing weight, you may be discouraged about giving up your favorite foods. A lot of diets fail since folks feel like they have to give up way too much all at once. Making small changes will add up with big weight loss.

You can break down your weight loss by numbers. Each pound of fat is comprised of roughly 3,500 calories. So if you would like to shed one pound of weight you will have to lose 3500 calories above what you consume. To start, you can have a goal of burning 500 calories and work your way up from there. This method should result in a weight loss of one pound each week.

Pack a lunch for work, school or play. Not only does this give you control over your eating, but it makes budget sense too. Pack plenty of fresh fruits and veggies and a lean, high quality protein snack. Include snacks so that you’re not tempted to get something for the vending machine.

You need to reduce your stress and try to eliminate it altogether if possible. Temptation is rampant out there when it comes to eating improper foods. Living a happier and stress-free life can help you focus on your goals and keep you on track.

You should think about what you are drinking when you are trying to lose weight. Only water and diet drinks are truly calorie free. Calories from soda pop, beer, Kool-aid and other drinks add up throughout the day. When counting your calories, keep close watch on how many you take in when drinking.

If you are concerned with calories, then consider your alcohol intake. There are quite a few calories in alcoholic beverages, and if you switch to a diet drink, it will be better for you. In addition, drinking alcohol can impair your judgment, making it more likely that you make poor food choices.

Try using a smaller plate to help manage your portion sizes. Studies have shown that we all tend to eat what is in front of us, no matter whether the portion size is bigger or smaller. When you put smaller amounts of food on a proportionately smaller dish, you still are eating off of a full plate and do not feel deprived.

A great weight loss tip is to make sure your dishes aren’t too big. When you serve your food on large dishes, there’s a good chance you’ll eat too much. Your meal should fit within a 9-inch plate. Any larger and your plate will hold far too much food.

If you stick to it and make an effort, losing weight in an attainable goal. Apply the information you’ve just learned to help you achieve your goals. It is a matter of mind over matter!

Take The Extra Weight Off For Good

When you want to lose some weight, you may think you should get out there and try pills or read books that promise that you’ll lose a bunch of weight. However, there are a lot of tips out there that you can use that will really work and will help you to get away from weighing too much. The following pointers are time-tested.

Get someone to join you in your weight loss plan. It can be easier to lose weight when you have company. You’ll spur each other on either as competitors or coaches, and you’ll both lose weight more quickly.

Cardio is a great way to shed those extra pounds quickly. Cardio exercises are good for overall health. They elevate your heart rate and also burn more calories than resistance training. Any exercise that increases you heart rate will qualify as cardiovascular activity. You should find an activity that you enjoy and do it.

One great way to assist you in losing weight is to only eat egg whites. The yolk is healthy, but it has a lot of cholesterol and fat, which are not good for you. Egg whites are a great source of good protein.

Stay away from fad diets that sound too good to be true. Your health could be at serious risk if you follow an extreme diet that suggests limiting your nutritional intake. These fad diets that promise huge results almost overnight are common in the weight loss industry, however they always fade away as quickly as they show up. These do not last because they bring weight loss results that are short-term and fail to provide long-term results.

You could illustrate the progress that you make easily by taking photos of yourself before and after you lose weight. By doing this, you can see for yourself just how much weight you have lost rather than simply seeing a number on a scale. Also, your friends can see your progression.

Eliminate stress from your daily life. During times of stress, it can be tempting to eat poorly. Try focusing on long-term goals and staying on track so that you can live healthier and stress-free.

You can help your weight loss goal by taking the stairs instead of an elevator. As simple as it may seem, you are still burning calories that you would not have had you taken the elevator.

When you begin a diet, establish goals that are realistic. As with pretty much everything in life, when having goals that are not attainable you are setting yourself up for failure. If you also try to drop a large amount of weight in an unrealistically short period of time, you are going to fail. Be wise, set a weekly goal that can be achieved. Try not to look at your ultimate goal too much. Focus on weekly weight loss instead of the big picture.

Find a friend that has the same weight loss goals as you. If you have a friend going through what you are going through, you can motivate each other and help each other keep on track. Also, you can make working out and dieting fun with each other during the course of your diet.

Embarrassing as it may be, take a “before” picture as you begin your weight loss program. Seeing the real you will help keep you motivated. Then, when you actually reach your ideal weight, you can take a look at the old you and compare it to the new you. These pictures can help motivate others to live a healthy lifestyle.

If you need new clothing when you are losing weight, don’t pay full price. Buy them on sale, or go to a re-sale shop instead. As you lose weight you can sell the clothes you have outgrown and purchase more in a smaller size.

Treat calorie-dense foods differently when trying to lose weight. For example, when you indulge in a piece of cake, include a serving of fresh fruit to help you control your portion of cake. Take a bite of cake and then a bite of fruit to make the cake last longer.

You will lose weight quickly by using this advice. Rather than feed into the newest craze, give the above tips a try. This is a cheaper and healthier way to lose weight.
