What I’m doing with my “winter weight”


I am pretty sure I’m not the only one that has gained a few pounds over the winter. Now spring and summer is quickly approaching and I’m ready to lose these pounds! I am a little disappointed but it does happen, so I first try to identify how and why I have gained. Personally I have been reverting to a couple of old habits and not being as “strict” as I normally would be. Just because I know what to do doesn’t mean I’ll do it.

  1. I’M GOING TO SET AND WRITE DOWN A NEW GOAL: there’s nothing wrong with setting new small goals when you get off track. This helps me stay accountable to myself. One thing I always tell my clients is to MOVE FORWARD! No matter how disappointed you are or how much you might have eaten you have to move on.
  2. I’M GOING BACK TO BASICS: sometimes we all have to revert back to when we started to lose weight or what has worked in the past.
  3. I’M GOING TO PAY ATTENTION TO EVERYTHING I EAT: I guess this kind of fits into the category of #2. I believe this is how these extra pounds came on. All the little bites and snacks add up! I have allowed myself a couple of extra things that I normally wouldn’t. Some chips, crackers or a little more chocolate than normal.
  4. I’M FOCUSING ON LABEL SPECIFICS-AGAIN: another huge habit that has always helped me is watching  the serving size, how many carbs, sugar, and protein it contains. I need to be more cautious of eating more than I need during the day-and at night!
