Here is my new realistic healthy lifestyle plan. I say realistic because
I am aware of the pitfalls involved with lasting change and intend to
conquer them step-by-step with consistent, mindful determination.
These extra 25 pounds didn't jump on my frame overnight so I know
they won't instantly fall off.
As a 47, soon to be 48, year old woman my body is in a hormonal flux.
The waning estrogen is slowing my metabolism so my body doesn't
burn calories as efficiently as it once did. As you can see by the attached link I've done my homework.
First, why do I want to lose weight? What's my motivation?
Simply stated I'm a size 12/14 physically with a size 8/10 mentality.
A merging of these selves is mandatory.
Rather than rely solely on the scale, I'll be using body measurements
to track my progress.
My goal is a smaller, toned version of me.
Second, how will I achieve this new smaller toned body?
I'm committed to a structured at-home exercise plan.
It's proven that to lose weight easier we must move our bodies. Here's my plan.
Monday and Thursday - 30 minute Stationary Bike Ride or 8 miles
Tuesday and Friday - Yoga Practice 20 - 30 minutes
Wednesday and Sunday - Strength Train
Saturday - Relax
Changing the way I eat
Eating 3 meals a day plus 2 snacks = 1800/2000 calories per day
Breakfast 300 - 400
Snack 100 - 200
Snack 100 - 200
This is a realistic breakdown of calories for me.
I will be planning my meals and creating a shopping
list on a weekly basis.
I'll share low-cal, healthy recipes throughout my journey.
Now onto portion control, my nemesis!
Third, I'll be taking Verithin with it's 3-Way approach to
weight loss/management for 30 days. I'll check in with
you weekly to share the journey.
As stated in the directions I'll take 1 capsule 1/2 hour before
both breakfast and dinner with a large glass of water.
The first thing I noticed when I opened the bottle of Verithin
is the wonderful berry smell. No stinky capsule here.
Here is my current weight and body shape from modelmydiet.com
My current measurements are as follows:
Bust - 40"
R Upper Arm - 12 1/4"
L Upper Arm - 12"
Waist - 36 1/2"

R Thigh - 26 3/4"
R Calf - 15 1/4"
L Thigh - 26 1/2"

I'll update these statistics at the end of my 30 day journey.
