After struggling for years to lose weight – please see the archives – I managed to have an awesome 2014.
I really started working on my weight in May.Â Between May and December, I lost 50+ pounds.
I lost 6 inches from my waist and 2 shirt sizes.Â Here’s how I lost 50 pounds this year –
I walk a minimum of 4 miles per day, every day.Â Walking makes me feel better, gets my blood pumping, and burns calories.
This one was tough at the beginning, but after losing a few pounds, I began to do a bit of jogging.Â I’ve scheduled my first mud-runÂ in April, and I’m pumped.
I eat fruits, vegetables, meat, and nuts.Â I skipped processed foods – and focus on foods that are real.Â When I need to break a stall, I’ll decrease carbohydrate-intake.
I drink water – lots of water.
I surrounded myself with positive people – and a few close friends to text when times got tough.
I’m looking forward to 2015.Â I plan to do more writing here at No. Calories Needed – and if all goes well – I’ll drop another 50 pounds – and post a picture next December.Â #motivation
