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 – 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.

Things To Know When Planning To Lose Weight

Shedding those unwanted pounds might seem difficult at first, but it should not have to be that way. Follow the tips presented here to get started. Many methods work. Find which ones work for you, and stay the course until you are at the weight you want to be.

Reducing your intake of red meat can help with your weight loss efforts. Red meat damages your heart and circulatory systems because of the high cholesterol and saturated fat contents. Eat leaner meats like turkey, chicken, and fish instead of those red meats.

The best way to prevent yourself from eating fatty or sweet foods is to not have them in the house in the first place. If you don’t bring home donuts, you don’t have to worry about not eating them. Conversely, make certain your cupboards are always stocked with plenty of healthful snacks. For example, pack your fridge full of fresh fruits and veggies, and fill your cupboard with healthy snacks.

Chunky soups can help you lose weight. Remember that it’s not smart to get your calories through liquids alone. Soups with a lot of chunky vegetables or beans tend to make you more full than those that are creamy.

If you have down moments when dieting, do not beat yourself up. Being perfect isn’t what you have to be. If you stray from your diet, work out longer to make up for it. Don’t dwell on not having time to do more exercise. If you get too negative, it can be hard to reach your goals. Stay positive.

A good way to help you lose weight is to invest in a heart rate monitor. This will show how your heart rate increases. The heart rate monitor will help guide you to keep your heart rate in the optimum zone to achieve your weight loss goals.

Carefully consider your beverage choices during a weight loss program. Except for water, almost everything you drink contains calories. Calories that you get from Kool-Aid and pop will add up through the day. Ensure you count your calories from drinks as well.

Make sure you have plenty of other things to enjoy besides food. Some people truly enjoy cooking and, subsequently, eating. That’s okay. Eating can be very enjoyable. Just be sure that you find things that you enjoy equally or more. Find new activities and hobbies so you can be more active and spend more time outside.

You should target your goal size for clothes vs your goal weight. Pay no attention to the scale. There is a great deal of weight variation from one person to another. Every person has their own ideal weight, so using weight as the final goal can be a bit misleading. Instead, concentrate on a clothing size you wish you could fit in.

Do not keep your weight loss plan a secret, tell your friends. You need a good support who will provide you with encouragement and give you motivation to keep going. They will also avoid tempting you with food or drinks you like.

Once you finish shopping for groceries, take time to divide food portions into containers. After weighing and measuring the servings, store them in individual containers like sandwich bags. When your food is already portioned and measured out for you, it’s a great way to prevent yourself from eating too much.

When you eat hot dogs or sandwiches, you should restrict your consumption of ketchup and mustard. Most condiments are filled with sugar, and can add a lot of calories onto your meals. Limit your intake of these additives.

Give yourself room for temptations occasionally, if only to maintain your overall resolve and willpower over time. A few chips or a chocolate bar once a week will not cause irreparable damage to your diet. Just don’t overdo it.

Now that you’re more familiar with some weight loss tips, you should use that advice to help you out. We hope these tips have given you some great ideas to help you attain your weight loss goals and improve your life.

Think in terms of what you can do to facilitate weight loss instead of what you can do to squelch bad habits. It’s easier to stick to your goals if you focus on positive changes. Instead of constantly trying to avoid going to the doughnut shop every morning, invent a new habit and stop somewhere for fresh fruit instead. Making new, better habits is easier than breaking poor habits.

Find a fitness buddy to help you stay motivated. Make sure that your friend is someone who has the same goals, performs the same exercises and uses the same diet to get the most of their help.

Serving your meals on smaller plates can have a beneficial psychological effect on your diet. People tend to finish what is on their plate. Using smaller plates and bowls means that you will take less of a portion. The only larger bowl or plate you will want to use is for healthy salads. When you use a smaller plate, it will fill it up and make it seem as though you are eating more.

Of course, planned meals are only helpful if you stick to your plan. You can switch days if you need to, but do not eat something unhealthy. The activity of cooking your meals can burn a few calories.

Unused calories do not just go away, they are stored as fat. Try to keep this in mind and cut back on your food intake if your schedule for the day involves minimal activity. Only have a bite when you know you are going to get up and active for some time. This way, the calories you ingest actually get used.

Eating a variety of healthy foods is the best way to lose weight. Eating the same foods day after day will definitely lead to boredom, and you may be tempted to go off your plan. Eat foods from all the food groups. Don’t deprive yourself; just eat your favorite foods in moderation.

When pursuing a weight loss goal, you should always weigh yourself on a regular basis. This helps you determine how effective your weight loss goal is. Keep a log in a notebook. Folks who document their efforts tend to be more successful at losing weight.

Do not think about using the actual word “diet”. Instead, watch what you eat, count calories, or any other term; just avoid the word “diet.”

Your goals belong to you and nobody can reach your goals but you. If you incorporate the information you learned here step by step into your lifestyle, you will quickly see positive results and achieve your weight loss goals.
