As I have mentioned, 2011 will be the year for me to get back into tip top shape. Last year I had to have some medications that didn't exactly benefit my waistline. This year I am turning this around, and I have decided I am going to start tomorrow, January 4th 2011. I will take all of my measurements and eight etc. and start then. Why tomorrow you ask? It is because tomorrow is the beginning of The Biggest Loser for this season. I have decided that I am going to lose weight along with the TV show. My goal is to hit my goal size by the season finale.
I have always been a relatively petite girl. I am only 5 feet tall, which has it advantages and disadvantages. A big disadvantage is that even gaining 10 pounds makes me look significantly heavier just because I am smaller to begin with. On the plus side, losing 10 pounds looks like you lost a lot more than that. I try to be realistic in my goals. I don't want to be a zero or a sub zero. I get cranky if I feel deprived so a crash diet is just not for me. I am trying to focus on a lifestyle change not a diet, and focusing on portion control and moderation, and exercising of course.
Diet magazines and books have always intrigued me, I would love to hear tips from others. What diet tricks do you have? How do you stay in shape?
