New me!

Hello guys,

I am getting married in April which is 9 months away, and I am not at my ideal weigh or body. I want to look good in my dress and make a lifestyle change that will stay with me. I feel like once you hit 25 everything starts going down hill! You can’t eat what you want anymore and it all just goes to your hips! I Miss my teenage days when I could eat French fries and pizza all day everyday and still had a flat belly and could wear a size 2!!!

Those days are long gone! Humans are creatures of habit and its hard to break a habit. My weakness is Oreos, French fries, hamburgers and juice. For me it is difficult to eat right when I’m in “study mode”! But that is about to change!

Today at the groceries I replaced some items. I got whole grain wheat bread, and brown sugar and lots of fruits in veggies! It’s hard to replace your whole fridge! So start by changing a few things at a time.

No more whole milk–> drink 1% or 2% milk or just cut milk out!
No white anything!( white bread, white sugar, white flour)
Use olive oil! Greek yogurt and applesauce are great substitutes!
Stay away from process foods and items that have more than 5 ingredients. And if you never heard of the ingredient you should prob stay away!

Another thing that I am trying is eating out less. Many meals at restaurants have waaaaay to many calories! Who need 800 calories for lunch?!? Not me!

Hope these tips help! And I will update you guys on my progress 🙂
