Everyone knows that to lose weight, you have to eat a healthy diet. It’s the cornerstone of any natural weight loss plan. But, saying it and actually doing it are two very different things, however.
For my weight loss plan, I’ve been trying to eat about 1,500 calories a day. Breakfasts are usually cereal with a piece of fruit. Lunches are a sandwich with a salad. Dinners are usually a frozen entree of some sort. (As much as I would like to cook a fresh meal each night, I just don’t have the time or the energy when I get home from work.) I also eat two snacks a day consisting of fruit, yogurt, and sometimes a low calorie munchie treat.
Overall, I’ve stuck to the plan well. But, I have had my challenges. Today, for example, I had a few moments of going “off the wagon”. What caused the stumble? I was in a meeting for the morning that ran through lunch. I had brought my healthy lunch to work with me. But, when I saw what had been ordered in, it looked so much more appealing. I ended up having one of those higher-calorie sandwiches, and indulged in a brownie.
Do I feel bad about it? Of course! But, now I know one of my great weaknesses and can try to figure out strategies to overcome them. That’s what natural weightloss is all about. Learning from your mistakes so that you can make wiser, healthier choices in the future.
