Anonymous asked: Hey! I've been on a fitness kick for the past 2ish months and lost around 15lbs (woohoo!) However, I'm kind of stuck now weight-wise and still have around 20lbs to lose before reaching my target weight. Is there anything you could recommend??
Wow, just take a minute to look at the progress that you’ve already made. That’s AMAZING! I know that it took me FOREVER to lose my first 20. it was always 10 pounds, and then i’d be back up to where is was. the whole yo-yo thing was where i was at.
To lose the next twenty, I would definitely recommend starting to incorporate weight training. Have you started basic moves with dumbbells? I have moved my way up to 9-11 lbs, and that’s only the beginning. when i get back to school, i’m really interested in weight training with barbells and stuff. do not fear the bulk;)
okay, weight training aside, are you drinking target amounts of water? i try for three liters a day (that’s almost a gallon, which sounds a little crazy.) it helps fend off the bloating that might be caused by excess sodium or sugars in your diet.. which should also be pretty clean to drop the last bit of weight. think high proteins with good fats (omega-3. get all the good fish! plus it’ll make your skin/hair/nails awesome too.) Then try and minimize the white/processed flours. try and eliminate the white rice/bread.
let me know more about your progress, this is amazing! you’re totally awesome for staying on track(:
