I have always been a sugar junkie and an emotional eater, prone to binge eating. Losing weight has been an up and down struggle all of my life. With my 45th birthday looming, I was fed up. I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life feeling out of control, unsatisfied with my body, and suffering with constant pain and discomfort. This time around I decided that I had to figure out how to make fitness a lifestyle. I wanted to learn why I couldn’t break my addition. And, I wanted to feel like I was amplifying my life not punishing myself in the process.
I started out quarantine like almost everyone else, in a funk and coping with chronic baking. It was seriously exacerbating an already unhealthy body, pre-diabetic and suffering with an autoimmune disorder. I had to accept that my comfort food was actually adding to my discomfort. Happily, I beat the COVID blues and managed to lose 25 pounds between June-September. Here’s my story and the tips that will hopefully help you on your weight loss journey as well.
5 things that I employed to help me on my weight loss journey.
☀️ Eat natural unprocessed food
☀️ Practice mindfulness
