Same wish every year?

2 Jan

Every year I used to make the same wish( to get thinner) but not this year, because I am thinner than I used to be in the past 5 years and more…

I lost exactly 12 kilos since last February and I swear I am not on a diet! How did I achieve this? I’ ll tell you something cliche but true…everything depends on your psychology. It is hard to believe it but when you do, you have passed the first big step! Tell yourself that you want to lose some kilos or pounds etc. but you don’t have to hurry.You do it for yourself in order to feel better and for nobody else…

Then I followed a tip I had seen in an american comedy and I started to wear tight clothes. As a matter of fact I couldn’t eat that much. I preferred a pair of tight jeans and a loose sweater or t-shirt, so I didn’t feel bad about my appearance.

I lost the 5 first kilos easily in a month by reducing ┬ásmall things from my everyday diet. For example if I ate 4 slices of bread every day I started eating 2 or 3. But I did that in everything not only in chocolate, beverages and other snacks. I even reduced the quantity of salads and soups! When I felt hungry I drank green tea or I chewed gums…It might seems silly but it really helps.

After the first 5 kilos it became more difficult but I never felt lack of anything and that’s the most important. Eat whatever you want in moderation. And remember that the more kilos you lose the more difficult it becomes…

I also started to walk 1 and a half hours at least 3 times a week. That helped my metabolism and also made me more fit and more confident!

Last but not least at all, if sometimes you go out of your program don’t panic! Speak to yourself again, think that you enjoyed the food and continue from where you have stopped. Especially, now after the Christmas Holidays this advice seems very helpful and I am going to follow it… Good luck if you try it too!
