Losing weight: How I did it
I don’t know about you, but I have always thought of losing weight as a very hard thing to do. That’s probably because I had never done it before, and I pictured hours and hours at the gym. I worked 80 hours a week, after all, I had no time to lose weight, or so I thought. I didn’t think I had any time to take any weight off, . I didn’t really believe him at the time, .
What did I do next? That’s a great question. . I did that with my doctor. Then, . ! I only kept foods with ingredients I could easily pronounce. I had read earlier that if my grandmother wouldn’t recognize the ingredients, .
Then I figured out how I was going to eat at work. Because I worked so much, . I didn’t think I had time to cook so much, so what I started doing at first was making myself sandwiches to take to work with me. , so that helped a lot. I love bananas and almonds, so I started bringing bananas and almonds to snack on.
Next, , which I generally dislike. I knew I would have to do it, so I took it upon myself to find exercises I really liked. There are hundreds of different programs out there, after all! I ended up getting involved in Zumba.
For me to do that, I had to make sure I wasn’t working on those days. That was a hard decision for me to make, . In fact, as time went on I started to feel better and better, which made me work more efficiently, and I now only work about 40-50 hours a week doing the same work.
I also made sure that I got as much sleep as I could. When you’re working upwards of 14, 15 hours as day, that can be tough, but I made sure I didn’t waste time in front of the television and went to bed as soon as I could. That seemed to help, and I heard that research was showing that people who don’t get a lot of sleep are more likely to be obese. I made sure that stopped happening to me.
I ended up losing about 100 pounds in a year, and I’m thrilled.
