Dear New Year, Please Let Me, My Family, My Colleague, My Clients & My Friends Br Just Happy This Time.
The resolution to lose weight is not new to me. In fact, it’s been my resolution every year for at least 12 years. Up until 2019, the resolution was always short-lived. I usually lost motivation within the first few weeks of the new year and quickly resumed my old bad eating habits.
Vanish Everything That’S Bad, Welcome Everything That’S Good. Wish You A Very Happy New Year 2020.
May Your New Year Dawn Be….Peaceful And Bright. Full Of Hopes And Possibility !
The difference this year is that I am resolving to maintain a healthy weight because I actually stuck to last year’s resolution! I am 75 pounds lighter than I was in December 2018. I am now a happier, healthier version of myself. I must admit, the initial motivation was less about a new year’s resolution and more about the threat of walking down the aisle in a white dress. The important thing is that I stuck with my new lifestyle and I succeeded! On my wedding day this past October, I wore a dress that was 4 sizes smaller than any dress I owned before. I can look at my wedding pictures without cringing and more importantly, I’m less at risk for conditions like heart disease and diabetes, which are both in my family’s health history.

So how did I do it? The healthy way: diet and exercise! I have zero tolerance for all of these strange diets surfacing all over social media. The results of reliable medical studies have found fad diets to be unhealthy and largely unsuccessful long-term. When I set out to lose weight, I did research on several different options. The only option doctors and researchers agree on is old fashioned diet and exercise. Eat less, move more. It’s really quite simple.

Exercise: I joined my local YMCA where I now spend 90 minutes a day at least 5 times a week. I do 60 minutes of cardio (treadmill, elliptical) and 30 minutes of toning (light weight lifting). I throw in a Zumba class occasionally with my girlfriends (try it – it’s fun!) and I take my poodle on a walk two or three times per week. I set a long-term goal: run a 5k. I started training in January and two weeks after my honeymoon in October, I ran in my first race. My new goal is to run 5 miles without stopping; almost there!
This Is A New Year, A New Beginning And Things Will Change.
Everyday Is A New Opportunity To Have A Fresh Start. Happy New Year 2019.
Diet: This was the hardest part because I LOVE food! I have a massive sweet tooth, a big appetite, and very little willpower. I limited myself to about 1400 calories per day. I downloaded a calorie counter app to keep track of my daily intake. The calorie counter (Fat Secret for Android – I highly recommend it and it’s free!) has a great feature – it gives nutritional information for dishes at hundreds of restaurants. I am now able to make healthy and informed decisions every time I eat. I discovered there is no need to deny myself all of the foods I love so much. I now eat one cookie instead of twelve. Moderation is a beautiful thing, I can have HALF of my cake and eat it too!
To everyone beginning the resolution of losing weight this year – stay motivated and set goals! The journey is not always easy but the grass really is greener on the lighter side of the street.
