Sustainable Weight Loss Tips

I am gearing up for a Bachelorette party this weekend, except for the fact that I’m not really “gearing up.”

A little over 2 years ago, I’d be going on some crazy 3 day cleanse where I do nothing but drink green juice, hit up 2 a days at the yoga studio and try to run 3-6 miles.  I’m exhausted just writing all that crap.

I gained and lost 10 pounds for the majority of my life.  Ever since I can remember when I first weighed myself.  It was 6th grade.  And no joke, until 2 years ago, my temporary weight loss was just that, temporary.

Tips for avoiding the roller coaster of weight loss:

  1. Drink more water.  Usually we are thirsty, not hungry.
  2. Limit yourself to 2 drinks, once/twice per week.  That’s it.  After that, bring on the hangover and the laziness.
  3. Move, every day.  It doesn’t have to be a TRX on the daily, just get yourself moving!
  4. Try to eat as clean as possible.  Shop the perimeters.  I’m sure you’ve heard it a lot, but this one is tough.  Especially when you are looking for something and the colors and beautiful fonts of processed food catches your eye.  If you’re in a pinch, eat a Quest Bar.
  5. Don’t beat yourself up.  If you had too much to eat and you feel full, so what?  Feel full, move on and don’t eat as much at your next meal.
  6. Follow the 80/20 rule.  80% stay on track.  20% live a little.
