Does Eating Rigt=Weight Loss?

Does Eating Right = Weight Loss?


Yes it does.  But the only catch is, knowing what eating right is.  And trust me it is not what we have been taught.  Such things, as soy, pork, nuts, sport drinks, diet sodas, low calories foods, and fat free foods, are not the foods and drinks for eating right.  Your body, as I have stated before, is not made of chemicals, preservatives, artificial colors and flavorings, these things should be avoided. I read the status of a young woman on facebook several weeks ago.  Saying that she eats right, but still can't lose weight.  And she mentioned how frustrating it was for her to try so hard and still not be able to lose weight.  Well I wanted to make a comment, but I opted to write an article instead.  Because I realized that it was more than just this young woman out there having this problem.  As the saying goes, it is not your fault, but it is your problem.  And unfortunately a lot of us fit in this category of problems, problems, problems.  When you are unable to fix a problem, it means that you have reached the limit of your knowledge in that area.  And it is up to you to seek and find the solution to your problem(s).  Running into this invisible wall on your weight loss journey, can really take the wind out of your sail.  Doubt, frustion, the loss of will-power are fast eroding the core of your desire.   It makes you question yourself...why is it not, working?  It's not working, because there are food items in your diet that does not allow you to lose weight.  And if you are extremely over weight you may be exercising, when you should be stretching.  Whole foods, such as fruits, vegetables, plenty of good water, coconut water, fish, and chicken,


minus the sugars, breads, alcoholic drinks, smoking, potatoes, and hard to digest meats, is the only way that the weight will began to shed.  Despite popular belief, you can't lose weight eating what you want.  There has to be a letting go, a cutting lose, never to return again of certain items, and foods from your life.  You should never try to obtain weight loss by taking chemicals.  Once you stop taking the chemicals the weight will return with an attitude, meaning more of it and quickly.  You have to change those habits, and those foods.  So, the young woman's problem is still with what she is eating and her exercising program.

The difference between exercising and stretching, is that exercising is mostly for cardio, and stretching is for toning, improving circulation of blood through all organs of the body, strength building of your core, and rapid weight loss.



The next time that you are comfronted with a problem.  Just seek more information in the area, and keep reaching for success.  Remember, success is not on a earthly plane.  You have to reach up to touch the stars.

New Beginnings Start Living Lose Weight!

Welcome to my New Blog

I decided to start my blog with the new month of October. I'm feeling great because I have started this month and the best way. I now weigh less than I have ever weighed in my adult life. This is such an accomplishment for me. Although I have lost and kept a lot of pounds since 2003, I have had my share of battles. Sometimes I felt deprived and frustrated that I must be concerned with eating healthy and exercising. However, I realize after seeing the results I've been seeing, it is worth more than the cookies, cakes, donuts and pizza that I have passed up. The thrills of eating those are so temporary and the results and are not what I want, the extra weight, and clothes not fitting right.

On the other hand, eating healthy makes me feel physically better and more in control. I enjoy seeing the numbers going down on the scale, my clothes fitting like I want them to. Don't think that I'm obsessed with losing weight or trying to reach a ridiculously low number. I'm just getting closer to the healthy BMI which will no longer classify me as overweight.

Now that I've expressed my excitement, I want to know how or will you start your journey this month?

As my site suggests, start living today! It's well worth effort.

Take Off the Weight

So many people would love to lose weight, but don't know how to take the weight off. We must first learn how to take it off before we can lose it. I am not writing about food this morning. I am writing about stress.Stress was meant to bless you, not to curse you. Yes, stress has an on and off button. We have not learned how to turn it off (take the weight off). Stress was made to help in the time of need to produce power, but if you do not turn it off it will cost you. My favorite author said we are to cast our cares....... We are to mediate.It could cost you your life one day at a time.Here are some signs of stress.Memory lost Sleeping problemsSkin problemsNot able to concentrateHaving a negative out lookAnxietyNegative thoughtsAlways worryingWeight gainOver eatingChest painsPainsDiarrhea or constipationNausea, dizzinessRapid heartbeatLoss of sex driveColdsThese are just some of the signs of stress.This buzz is for you (Amalaki Fruit).Ever wondered if you could find a single cure to anti-aging, skin diseases, heart diseases etc.? Well, you can find the answer to all these problems and more – because everything is power packed in one small fruit – the humble Gooseberry. A relative of the currant family, the gooseberry, also known as Amla, Amlaki, Vayastha and Dhatriphala, it has many curative powers just like other berries. However this is a berry which has extra curative powers. If one were to consider an analogy, the following one would be apt – gold is to the world of minerals as amla is to the world of herbs.

Fight Fat With Faith!

There's an old quote that says, "Exercise daily, walk with God." As women in the business world, it's easy to forget to take care of your most important asset-- YOUR HEALTH. If you've been struggling to lose weight, I'm sure you've come to realize that you can't do it on your own.

My new eBook, Fight Fat With Faith: Biblical Strategies For Weight Loss-- gives you both practical and spiritual tips to losing the weight and keeping it off.

Here are three ways to start a successful weight loss journey:

Change how you think about your weight loss. Forget all of the times you've missed the mark. Start making better choices within the next 24 hours. There will be times when it's not easy, but remember-- you must forget those things that are behind and press toward the prize. As a woman thinketh...so is she.

Have realistic goals. You don't have to set out to lose 75 pounds in the beginning. Setting unrealistic goals, leaves you discouraged and demoralized when you don't reach them. Start with a goal of losing 5 to 10 percent of your current body weight. So if you weight 200 pounds-- set a goal to lose 10 or 20 pounds. Once you achieve this goal, it will be easier to lose more.

Let go of all excuses. We all have excuses for not eating right and not exercising. "I'm too busy to cook." "I can't afford a gym membership." "I don't have the energy to exercise." "It's my metabolism." These negative excuses keep us in a cycle of failure when it comes to losing weight and living a healthy lifestyle. If you need wisdom on how to fit fitness into your lifestyle, pray and ask God for guidance. In James he says, "If any of you lack wisdom...let her ask God, who gives [it] generously without finding fault." (NIV)

In addition to a lower quality of life, the risks of being overweight are many (heart disease, diabetes, stroke, arthritis and some cancers). Initially, commit to cultivating a healthy mindset and the lifestyle changes (eating habits and exercise) will come naturally.
