The Rules of MFP Success
If you are new around here, welcome. Now here are the rules of success!
Losing weight is easy, I do it every time I clip my nails. As the New Year's resolutions fall by the way side, it might be time to regroup and get back on track!
-1 Schedule your workouts like you would a gynecology appointment. You may not want to go, but you need to take 30 minutes 3x/week to move as much and as fast as you can.
-2 Log all your food and set your activity levels properly. If you can't count, Google easy math. ;)
-3 Try eating your exercise calories as recommended. It might NOT work, so try not eating them! Just don't make another post in the forums about it!
-4 Weigh your food portions. I suspect you didn't get to where you are by not knowing how many grams/ounces a rib eye steak weighs!
-5 Get rid of all the junk foods and trigger foods in the house. I will even let you log this as Cardio exercise, "Cleaning with Maximum Effort!"
-6 Take pictures now, you'll be glad you did. If you are serious, take some ugly fat pics! 50 pounds from now you'll be glad you did.
-7 Use the tape measure often and the scale sparingly. If you are doing the cardio, some weeks your weight is going to move around.
-8 Plan for success - know what you are going to eat as far in advance as you can. A flight plan will save a lot of complaining and looking for sympathy on the news feed. :)
-9 Visit your favorite restaurant sites NOW, and make a list of suitable meals at each of them. You really can get out of most places with a 400 calorie meal if you plan for it.
-10 Never make excuses, it's your life. :)
Thanks for the votes and comments. I really am going on vacation!
