What do we always do on January 1st? We make a new years resolution. What is the number one resolution? Say it with me. To lose weight. I did just that in 2013 with Noom and I plan on doing it again starting today.
We have already been to Food Maxx to buy our Weight Watchers Smart Ones frozen dinners which is what helped me to lose 70lbs in 2013. We also have our frozen veggies and fruit in the fruit bowl. I start physical therapy on January 3rd and I will most likely ride my bike to get there and use the Noom cardio trainer app to log my bike ride and my PT. I took the Noom app off my phone and put it on my Nook HD+ because I like the bigger screen and because I need the space on my phone.
Like i said, last year I was lucky enough to lose 70lbs and every week I had weight loss, and no gain. I would love to do the same exact thing this year, but even I know that is nearly impossible. If you try hard to do something you did before, you won’t do it and you will become frustrated and you will end up doing the opposite, so I’m just going to relax and hope for the best. If it happens, it happens, if it doesn’t, it doesn’t. But I hope it does lol.
So from right this moment, every breakfast I will measure the exact amount of cereal and pour the exact amount of soy milk and slice exactly 1 banana into it for breakfast. For my snacks I will stick with fruits and lunch and dinner I will try to stick with veggies and the weight watchers meals. That is how I did it in 2013.
It’s not difficult to do something if you set your mind to it. I said that I will NOT eat chocolate or cookies or ice cream, and I kept my word. Instead of eating those bad things, I substituted them for fruits. Instead of eating chocolate ice cream, I chopped and froze a banana or cantaloupe and blended them in the food processor and made my own healthier ice cream. Instead of eating store-bought cookies, I made my own from a recipe that I found. In fact, here are all of my healthy recipes that I found and altered to make them healthy.
I don’t drink soda or any alcoholic beverages, so that’s a blessing, but I do drink coffee with creamer and no calorie sweetener. I did okay on the diet last year with the coffee, so that’s not a problem. I tried to drink water, but I just can’t stand plain old water. I drink Crystal Light, or well the Food Maxx generic version of it anyway. It’s 5 calories per 8oz which is not too bad. Although people are always telling me to cut out the sweeteners and blah blah blah, but again, 70lbs last year speaks for itself.
Anyway, so that’s my plan and I am hoping to drop down to 160lbs this time. I would like to get down to 150lbs, but I’m just going to try for 160 and see how that goes. If I find myself wanting to drop another 10lbs then I will. Once I get to my main goal then I will continue using the Noom app to maintain my weight. And of course I will start blogging every weigh in day again. My weigh in days in 2013 were Fridays, so how does Friday sound? Sounds good to me. So it’s settled. This coming Friday will be my first official weigh in and blog post.
