Do Something Realistic!

Question for you!! - As far as your weight loss plan goes, is it something that you can do for the rest of your life? Is it a lifestyle change or a quick fix?

I swear by Weight Watchers but I also know that it doesn't work for everyone. It is crucial though that if you want to lose weight and MAINTAIN that you pick a plan that is ideal for you FOR LIFE.. especially if you have struggled with your weight for a long period of time.

Maybe some people believe in the Atkin's diet or any "no carb" diet..or things like NutriSystem.. where you get prepackaged meals.. but for me I just can't imagine not eating pasta and bread for the rest of my life. Or eating boxed food every day FOREVER!  The thing with these short term diets is when you stop, all the weight piles right back on! Do something realistic!

Not trying to sell anyone on WW (Although it is wonderful!!) .. just want to put it out there that when starting a diet, make sure that it's something you can do long-term.

Let's have a great OP day!!

Oh and... I will be taking it easy today.. I twisted my ankle doing Turbo Fire yesterday. Pretty upset about it!! I have a 5K to run in 3 weeks :(

Love and hugs!

Not saying you can't lose weight on them.. I know from personal experience that you can but it's not realistic to say "I'm not gonna eat carbs for the rest of my life." If you are not making a LIFE CHANGE then you are wasting your time because as soon as you stop, it's going to come back on!
