Lifestyle Change, Not a Diet!

When I was younger, in my teens I had a fast metabolism and could pretty much eat just about anything and I sure did! I was young and didn’t know any better so I ate fast food about everyday like Sonic,Mcdonald, Whataburger, and Jack in the Box. I even worked at Sonic and Mcdonald as a teenager and got free food so that was even better for me at the time, fast metabolism so no care in the world about weight management. I graduated high school in 2004 weighing 92 pounds, I know crazy how thin I was.(Plus I was 2 months prego at the time) I even gained about 55 pounds throughout pregnancy and you would of thought that I would of had a hard time getting the baby weight off, but nope I bounced right back to my skinny thin self with no help of any diet.(young & fast metabolism lucky) I had my second son a few years later in 2006 and gained about the same weight and bounced back right after again with no diet or exercise help of any kind. I was still young age 20, and still my metabolism was fast and active(how amazing was that). If I only knew that 10 years from now I would have problems bouncing right back after my 4th baby! So having my 3rd baby at age 27 I was thin at the time of getting pregnant about 110 pounds and gained about 55-60 pounds during that pregnancy(oh wow the biggest I have ever been,depressing). So being older I tried to do some kind of walking/running more and managed my weight with the dieting plus working out. I stayed around 135 pounds and managed it well as I could because I was still in my 20s but older now than I was when I got pregnant the first time. Then as I had my 4th(last baby), I gained 60 pounds and this was my biggest I ever have been. So now a year later, I’m doing everything I can to watch what I eat, dieting, and exercising bike riding and walking. But harder to find time with managing 4 boys as a SAHM(exhausting). So this is my journey and finding what works with my body at my age with diet tips, watching calorie/carb intake, and drinking lots of water plus finding time to exercise but also having the energy. So I’ve researched lots of different diets and here are my reviews first hand on what I believe is the best advice at age 31. Maybe if they work for me and I’m seeing results finally after trying all kinds of tricks, I can help you in your weight loss journey as well.

  1. My weight was fine after school and two babies too. After my 3rd and 4th which were 10 years after my first that metabolism didn’t quite work as fast. Now I work harder at my fitness level and slow down on my junk food consumption.

  2. I love how this post is about changing your habits for a healthy life and not just a quick fix diet. Diets never work because once they are done people go back to bad habits and gaining weigh again. I learned this lesson the hard way, but I am not teaching my son the importance of good eating habits.
