So many people that have seen my posts about my weight loss have asked what I'm doing! So I will share! There is this AMAZING program and it is helping me shed weight, have more energy and even decrease my brain fog!
Let me back up just a bit and remind you of my days weighing 245 pounds, where you would hardly even recognize me. After losing two children, emotional eating was my thing! If you want to read more about that...here is the link (https://heatherearljoyinthejourney.blogspot.com/2012/03/im-starting-on-monday.html) You can even see what I looked like at that weight! But just a warning....Don't fall out of your chair!
So needless to say, I know how to lose weight because I have lost 100 pounds before and then gained some back and lost that, gained some back and lost that, gained back and lost that well you see the pattern. I have literally been a roller coaster throughout the years! Every time fall would hit and the anniversaries of losing both my kids the emotional eating would start right back! But the cool thing is that I know how many amazing products are out there. And I know what the perfect mixture for success is after gaining and losing so many times! I understand! But no more excuses! I want to be able to add that not only do I know how to lose weight, but that I also know how to keep it off!
I have used Advocare, Shakeology, Herbalife, Isagenix, Le-Vel, Melaleuca, Plexus, Shaklee, and even watched my mom have success with MediFast.
GUESS WHAT????? THEY ARE ALL GOOD PRODUCTS! THEY ALL GIVE YOUR BODY GREAT STUFF! (I have friends that sell just about all of the above, so if you are interested in any of them I can send you their way)
So here is the BIG SECRET of my weight loss....there is no secret! The best program is healthy eating and exercise and when it's combined is the key! It's always the key! Even with injuries and lots of them...it can work! I'm living proof! I have a bad back, terrible pain in my shoulder, a bad knee and foot pain! I even have pain in my arm by my elbow, (Have no idea what that is) But anyway, I know from experience that when the weight goes away the pain can diminish!
I believe in any of the above companies and believe that you can include any of them for your journey. I personally love the shake plans because I am bad about getting all the greens, and fruits and vitamins that my body needs. Back when I lost 100 pounds, I actually drank Slim Fast shakes. So I do a shake most mornings unless I want a healthy egg white omelette with veggies. Then I have a healthy snack, like sliced tomatoes, avocados or a boiled egg. Then I have another shake for lunch unless I want a salad. Then again I have a healthy snack, maybe almonds and a cheese stick. Then I have dinner, usually grilled chicken or fish and a green veggie like fresh green beans, snow peas or asparagus.
Then I add at least 30 to 45 minutes of exercise. That's my plan and it works! Oh and lets talk exercise. I am all about simplicity and I also know how to control my mind to help my body do what I want it to do even when my brain wants to quit!
I know it is hard and I know its so individual. I know there are exceptions to everything and I know it doesn't work for everyone because of medical issues. But what I do know is that you are better when you are fit and healthy. Your mind, your thought process, your energy, your sleep!
I also know that the enemy, adversary, devil whatever you want to call him...likes us better when we aren't physically at our best! So it can hold us back in our lives. I have witnessed this first hand at times in my life! I am walking this path right now and already feeling amazing!
So start today! Do something to get back on track with your health and your fitness. Your best self is waiting! I know the MAJOR differences in me when I am exercising and healthy eating!
