Conquering My Elephant - Weight Loss

Week 3 Update

Quick update. As of 7/11, I am down another 1.8 lbs to 181.4.  Going to try and focus a little more this week.  Gotta drink more water and eat more veggies/fruits and cut back on the bread. Turkey burgers w/o the bun please :-)   

Have a great week!

The Next Seven Days...


What are doing this week to get closer to your weight loss goals? Mine this week will be cutting back on salty foods and adding a little cardio.  It can be as little as 15 min a day to start.  I also took my measurements so I am not just focused on pounds.  Inches can be just as important if not more when you start to put on muscle.  If you haven't take your body measurements.  I am tracking my bust, waist, hips, thighs and calf. 


Week 1 Update

It is the end of week one and I am down 2 lbs. to 183.2.  Doesn't seem like a lot overall, but it is the recommended amount to lose per week to lose healthy and to maintain once weight is off.  I'll take two of those!

Stay encouraged!  Till next week...

Realistic Expectations...

As you move through your weight loss journey, don't think because you don't see any changes today that nothing is happening.  Your body is changing on the inside and will reveal its changes on the outside soon enough.  Use the chart attached to give you an idea what to expect and create realistic expectations for this journey.  

I'm excited what the next 4 weeks will bring!

Whole Foods are the way to go...

As you go on your weight loss, health and wellness journey, be mindful of the things you are putting in your body - food, drinks, supplements.  Stick to whole foods and avoid processed foods.  Summertime is a great time to start because fruits and veggies are plentiful - if possible support your local farmers. Check out your local farmers markets and fairs - fresh whole foods and exercise while you walk around seeing the bounty that is available for your next meals. Enjoy.


Eating Behaviors - Which one are you?

I will be sticking to whole foods and veggies on my journey.

My Transformation

Although I help people through their life transitions, coaches have their detours in life and need to take on their own transformations from time to time.  I am ready to take on a new transformation for myself and hope that my transparency can help you through your personal weight loss transformation or for that matter any transformation.  All transformations take acknowledgement, committment, and discipline to move to the next level.  In order to move to my next level, I need to conquer the elephant on my plate.

We all have elephants on our plate from time to time. Some have more than one elephant and may need to choose which one to start with. My elephant that has been staring me down for some time, particularly the last year is my weight. I am ready to ACTIVATE and start eating my elephant - hope it's protein and low-calorie
