12/13/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Friday

I was reading a magazine (shall remain nameless to protect…my heiny) that has that gossip/celebrity/health issues feel to it.  Inside, a reader wrote, “I’m 17 pounds shy of my weight goal for New Years Eve.  What suggestions for quickie-weight loss do you have?”  Their response was “take a weight loss pill.”  The one they suggested costs $90 for a 30 day supply!


That is not a solution for long term health!  Is getting into a size-too-small dress in 3 weeks when it probably took you a year to put that weight on worth it?  Yo-yo weight loss through wacky diets and diet pills is terrible for tour body.

Make small/medium/large healthy changes to your overall diet every week.  Add some kind of cardio and weight training 4-6 days per week. If that requires getting up 30-60 minutes earlier, then DO IT!  Do child-watching swaps with a friend so you can go for a brisk walk indoors at the mall, at a gym, or YMCA or bundle up and go outdoors.

These are positive changes that will help you safely loose the extra weight you may be seeking.  It won’t happen in 3 weeks, but it WILL HAPPEN.  Long term health is most important.
