Losing weight more than just stomach.

KANSAS CITY — Many ladies say, “I just want to lose my stomach and keep my booty!” Are you kidding me? If I had a dime for every time I’ve heard this type of verbiage I’d be blogging under bubbles from my imaginary bathtub made of solid black gold inside the 14th restroom of my lofty 50-bedroom mansion that’s located along the outskirts of my own private island. Ok, you want to shrink your tummy. I get it. After all, it’s certainly human nature to pursue goals that are difficult to achieve.

But, it’s also important to understand just how toilsome weight loss can be. For starters, you can’t shed pounds from one part of your body. There’s simply too many components that are physically linked together. In other words ladies, please quit thinking you can drop pounds from just your midsection.

Don’t mean to be the bearer of bad news.

But weight loss is a process the entire body goes through.

  5. I’m recently been trying a loose vegan diet and I’m having trouble eating a whole 2000 calories a day… I’m just not hungry for it… So I’m afraid to exercise because I don’t want to under-eat and then burn off the little that I did eat. I’m probably around 1500 daily if that. I don’t need a lot of energy to get through my day so I think that’s okay but idk

  6. Goals must be manageable. And in the beginning start small. People get Gung ho and try to do too much too soon and get burnt out and give up. I’ve always known what to do, exercise and eat healthy. Duh! But of course it’s hard to do if you’ve never done it. So I got some great advice from a super hot trainer. He said just do one thing each day that is a step in the right direction. Then every day do a little more. Also do what you enjoy so you’ll keep doing it. Well, I Hate the gym, for a number of reasons. But I like walking the trails. So I started with 1mi, 20 mins. I did it a couple times then next thing I knew it was 3mi 2x a week. As far as diet, I’m a sugar addict. So I slowly cut out sugar. Started with no more candy. Not too hard. Now a year later I walk 6-10mi a day 3X a week and have done 2 18mi fundraiser walks. Oh, and lost 45lbs so far 😆 Also, I didn’t weigh myself for about 6mo. Just went by my clothes falling off. Everyone has that pair of jeans they will fit into again! Keep putting them on, great motivator! I’ve got those jeans in the give away pile now cuz they’re too big!

  7. I enjoy food😝

    Yoga helped me a ton. Especially flow and slow burn classes. I sweat so much and it really clears my mind. I feel amazing. You CAN injure yourself though, so listen to your body during each pose and be careful not to over extend yourself.
    I also love biking and walking/hiking.

    The best and most effective weight loss is doing something you don’t like. Doing something I didn’t like made me angry and work harder until the exercise became easier and then enjoyable because it became easier. Crazy logic but it worked for me.
