Have you had family members tell you they were concerned about your health? Have you just been brushing aside their comments and just thought they were being overly critical? As your weight has continued to climb you have just been ignoring it. One lady named Monika was on this same journey as you. However, when a doctor told her she was at 242 lbs and it wouldn’t be long before she would hit 300 lbs if she didn’t make a change and make it fast. She was at a high risk for high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease. She stopped denying she had a problem and started to take action. She found a couple of easy things that helped her get her weight under control.
#1 Get Educated
First Monika started to eat better giving up soda and fast food. She instead chose high-fiber products. She started getting educated about nutrition and researched healthy foods online. She started adding protein and whole grains into her life and cut back on sugar and fat. She stopped drowning her salads in creamy fattening dressings and instead started using just oil and vinegar.
#2 The Buddy System
She also knew she had to start moving more. She hated going to the gym but knew if she could get a friend to join an exercise program with her she would stay more committed. By setting aside a time for her and a friend to meet and exercise she stayed committed to the workout program and week by week she notice the pounds starting to fall off and in only 10 months she had lost down to 162.
#3 Going the Extra Mile
Excited by the results she was seeing she wanted to start challenging herself so she began to run. She realized that the better she got at it the more energy she had. Over the next 2 years she dropped down to 145 pounds. She says that maintaining her lifestyle is hard but she just takes it one day at a time.
