Just like everyone else, my new year resolution is to lose weight - my pregnancy weight to be more specific. After the holiday season and my recent eat-a-thon, here I am, faced with a huge stepback in reaching my original weight. I mean I was already really close before Christmas, but now have just put back 1.4 lbs. It may not sound like a lot, but trust me, I can feel it in my jeans!
1) Chew my food:
I often eat too fast and feel overstuffed afterwards. Instead of swallowing everything down, chewing will give my brain enough time to signal that I'm full.
2) Drink water:
I don't drink enough water mostly because it doesn't taste much. Not that I use to drink a lot of pop, but even juice is high on sugar and calories.
3) Cut 1/2 on desserts:
Limit myself to one dessert a day instead of one (sometimes two) dessert after each meal.
I know I should also include an exercise plan but food intake is actually the single most important element in weight lost. Once I'll achieve the ideal weight, then I'll work on toning.
