That's not to say I haven't tried many things. NutriSystem has been my 'go to' for a jolt in weight loss. I return to them like an old friend that says "remove that real cookie from your mouth and eat this bar that is packed with protein and will fill you up much more quickly." And for the most part, I've maintained a certain level with them. I still want to get rid of more unwanted fat (and this lovely tire around my waist), but the word exercise sends me running faster than anything...and I don't mean the GOOD running that I know I should be doing. When it's hot (as the heat wave the Northeast has been experiencing) - my lazy butt prefers the cool comfort of my sofa.
Still...I know I have to constantly work at it or I could be right back where I was two years ago. When my pants start to feel tight now, I don't go and buy a larger size. Instead, I change those eating habits. And honestly for me...it's all about those habits. (Many of them bad.) I am very big on drinking tons of water a day and I know that is a great thing. I've even tried natural supplements (buzz, buzz) to help curb appetites and cause you to drink more. And I watch all the inspirational videos that I can stand.
Like my battle in this area, this blog has no ending. I feel I'm always sort of caught in the middle of it. A constant from which I can't escape. But at least when I feel the squeeze of the pants, I now listen. That's a huge step in a better direction.
