It has always been a struggle for me to lose some weight. I have been running for the past few years. I started young… my parents would send me to athletics and it was hard but sooo much fun! I became one of the good runners and I loved it. If there was a chance to run faster I would train for it. Anyways, that’s all nice but my body weight has been crazy for the past two years.
At first I started skipping a meal but that didn’t last long because at night time I would get super hungry. My husband showed me that app called “My Fitness Pal” and it is so easy to use. You can set some weekly goals, like losing either 0,5 kg or 1,0 kg per week. It always depends on how you like to plan your meals for the day and your workout.
I decided to go for the 1,0 kg per week. I’m faaaar away from my dream goal but I’m getting there. As soon as you decided how much you would like to lose, the app automatically calculates you how many calories you get per day. Mine are only 1200 calories and let me tell you it doesn’t sound a lot but to be honest I made it work! I started to eat less carbohydrates (like bread, noodles, rice…) and more vegetables, I had less chocolate and more fruits. The chocolate part was the hardest for me because I FREAKING LOVE CHOCOLATE, I MEAN WHO DOESN’T? There is always a sacrifice to be made for a happier and healthier life.
Once you get all the food you want to cook you get ready to weight all the food. It is very important to keep track of all the grams and all the calories that way you can get a better view of what you consume each day. When I started this diet almost everyone would tell me: “that’s way too complicated”, “that’s unnecessary”, “you will probably stop doing it after one month”… well let me tell you, there will be many people telling you that you can’t do it… but keep trying. I keep trying too. The more people tell me I can’t do it, the more I try harder. I like to challenge myself, for without challenge there is no growth.
If you are wanting to lose some weight, stay within your weight or let’s go to the rare ones.. if you want to gain some weight.. Well then I recommend using My Fitness Pal. It has helped me a lot. It takes courage, resistance, endurance and faith in yourself.
How do you manage staying fit?
