It's no secret I need to lose weight. The move to Germany was a huge life change for me. Now back on America soil I have a lot of work ahead, undoing the damage I did in the last two years. I really thought just being back and happy would be enough! Silly I know, but apparently it takes more than an address change to lose weight.
I watched the Dr.OZ show the other day and his message was if Americans would just lose 10lbs this year how much healthier they would be. Dr. Oz and his panel of experts made it sound so easy.
1. replace soda with water
2. eat nothing after 8 pm
3. move for at least 10 minutes a day
4. no snack larger than fist
5. track your weight everyday
I think if seems easy enough to do, their method is the start for people like me that have a lot to lose. The idea is you will feel better and in turn move more than 10 minutes a day, eat better and in return lose more weight.
For me it's doing things different than I've done for the last two years, we all know what we can change in our lives to live healthier. For me it's not falling into my old pattern, it's enjoying the things you love in moderation.
For me it is time to take control of my health, yes I'd like to look better in my jeans and have the scale say something besides ouch when I step on it! For me my focus is change like the change of a season.
I'm gonna listen to Dr. Oz and his friends, I joined Weight Watchers and signed up for a Zumba class once a week. I've dusted off the sneakers, squeezed into the spandex, ate my last candy corn and I'm looking forward to the change.
