Some Tips Before You Start Your Weight Loss Journey
Starting your weight loss journey is not always easy. I recently have been struggling with some health issues. I have always been underweight. I was diagnosed with Graves Disease and have been on a merry go round, so to speak.
I am currently more than 20 pounds over what I normally am. I have been exercising but nothing is working.
I am sure you can relate to not feeling your best when you are not at your optimal weight. Maybe you feel like me and start to feel a little self-conscience.
I know I am not defined by my weight and I have practice a little self-talk to remind me who I am. I decided I need to make a change and start my own challenge.
I am gathering together a lot of information about my health and going to begin a focused plan to get healthy. It will start with a few supplements, better eating, some essential oils for my adrenals and a focused exercise plan.
For my birthday, my husband got me a fit bit, so that will be part of my accountability. Being a writer has its challenges in itself.
I am using the fit bit to remind me to get up and walk. These weight loss tools below have all you need to get started. I will keep you up to date how it’s working.
I also use an app called Carb Manager to count my calories and macros.
25 Must-Have Weight Loss Tools
9. Food Journal
12. Fitbit Charge 2
14. Exercise Ball
19. Apple iPod Nano
23. EA Sports Active
24. Just Dance 2016
Now that you have some tools to choose from, pick the ones you think will give you the motivation to get started.
Don’t overdo it. You only need one or two to get started. Start planning some self-care days. You will need to reward yourself for small accomplishments.
One of the things I have done food wise is to try to eliminate as much processed sugar as possible. I am now using Swerve for all my baking and liquid stevia for my beverages.
I usually only drink unsweetened Iced Tea, but on occasion, I will have a coffee and add a few drops of sweetener to it.
The other thing I added daily was Bone Broth. This helps with saggy skin when you start losing weight.
