So, now it is “After Thanksgiving”. That is the time I have to try to get rid of any weight I gained so that I can gain it back with Christmas goodies! I gain weight so easily. I was told to exercise so my metabolism would increase and it would be easier to keep weight off. I do a minimum of 20 minutes a day of elliptical and weights. I run around a lot while at work, playing tag, hide-and-go-seek, sports, and climb around on the playground. My meals consist of high protein/low fat foods, some fruit and veggies. Yet, I don’t drop even a pound. After two Thanksgiving meals, both of which I did not over-do it, just had one helping and not huge portions, I have gained four pounds. That’s how my body works!
I do all three of the choices on a daily basis. At least that’s how it feels! I would just fast for a day a week if that helps, but my peptic ulcer would scream all kinds of obscenities at me! I get severe stomach pain and acid reflux if I skip a meal.
Have any of you had trouble losing a few pounds, and if you succeeded, how did you do it? I will listen to any and all ideas, even if they are “out there”. haha!
