I lost 15 pounds in five months. OK, you might be rolling your eyes at this statement, but keep reading, I won't disappoint!
This used to be me. Can you relate?
I hate exercising.
I'd rather sit on the couch.
I love junk food.
I've tried all kinds of diets.
My doctor told me a year ago that I had to lose 20 pounds. I was borderline pre-diabetic and pre-high cholesterol. Honestly, that scared me for a few weeks, but I kept the weight on and probably gained a few more during the first month of the quarantine.
So what happened? Here are five things that changed everything: One: An opportunity arose. Covid quarantine started in March. Two: I found a workout that I love (12-week workout) Three: I got a workout partner (my hubby). This is huge! Four: I have been talking to a coach about losing weight for the last six months (yes, I get coaching too). Five: I made small incremental changes to my diet. I'm still making changes. No more impossible, unsustainable diets! I still have five pounds to go, but THIS IS MY STORY. I found the nutrition and exercise plan that works for me. You will need to do the same. But the two things that really made a difference was my workout partner and coaching. What they have in common is accountability. Having someone hold you accountable to do what you say you are going to do is critical to behavior change. Get a coach or a workout partner, or both! I hope this encourages you!
