Losing Weight: One of My Twelve 2018 New Year's Resolutions Detailed Out For Me and You
January 15, 2018 • Leave a Comment
As an artist, I believe it is important to be happy in your surroundings and happy with yourself or you won't feel like producing art.
So one of my goals, New Year's resolutions, for 2018 is to get my weight back to 120lb so my clothes will fit again. There is nothing I hate more than spending money on clothes. I'd rather be spending that money on trips to Japan or Australia, things that inspire my art. In my early 30s I gained weight. I weighed about 140lb. I used the plan below to get my weight back to 115lb by loosing about two pounds a week, which is a safe amount to loose. Now I'm 43 and my weight is back up again so it is time to get back on Roxanne's weight lose plan. So here's the plan. If you are trying to loose weight too maybe it will work for you too.
1. Limit calories to 1500 calories per day
I can eat anything I want, the calorie count just can't go over 1500. You have to be really strict about measuring everything including condiments that your adding like ketchup. So it is work, but it does get easier as you start to memorize amounts after a while.
2. Exercise a minimum of 3 times a week for 30 minutes
I put on Denise Austin videos from YouTube. They are free and I can do it at home. I start at 3 days a week and increase to every day as my body gets stronger.
3. No eating 21/2 hours before bedtime
Yes, at first you might feel like you want to eat before you go to bed, but soon, in about a week, your body will be trained to burn the stored calories while you sleep. You'll need to establish a bedtime and be strict about it.
4. Drink lots of water
You can drink water any time you want and as much as you want. If you get hungry during that 21/2 hours before bedtime, drink some water.
5. Only check the scale once a week
Your weight will go up and down and you don't need to see that every day. At most, only check once a week. If you can check less, great! You only need to see the big changes or you will get discouraged.
I'll blog more and make videos of my progress. I need to take a before shot and post it. I'll do that when I'm not sick any more.
