Saving money is just plain smart, but you also need to save it with purpose, usefulness and saving your own sanity to boot!

Saving my body…

Saving my body…

Saving my body by losing some weight…
From July of last year up until April 15th of this year, I gained 25 pounds. I had a weight issue before, and after my fat jeans got too tight to fit into anymore, I knew it was time to go back to a very strict diet! When have you heard that one before? lol Granted, this isn’t for everyone, and I would strongly urge you to see your doctor when you feel you need to make a lifestyle change, and especially when it comes to your health!
I can only speak for myself, and talkĀ about what I personally did to shed 22 pounds out of that 25 pounds I gained during that 7 month period.
Like I said… everyone is different, and we all react to foods differently too. My go to meals include organic oatmeal with a half a glass of cranberry juice for breakfast, soup, a few small slices of cheese with water for lunch ( low sodium soup ), and dinner I have a half a bag of frozen vegetables, cottage cheese, and apple sauce with water. ( Veggies I use a small pinch of salt, and pepper – No butter… ) If I have a snack I’ll have some fruit or, I’ll grab a yogurt where I’ll toss in more fruit such as strawberries.
I stay away from meat, bread, soda, wine, and coffee. ( I miss my mocha’s! )
Like in the movie, Mean Girls… I need to lose 3 more pounds! lol ( No Swedish nutrition bars for me… )
Losing the weight where I feel healthier saves me from being over-tired, and I just feel better about myself. Losing 22 pounds in a 2 month period is super difficult, but having a doctor is beneficial. She’s also my cheerleader if you will…
Do I weight myself daily?
Yep… However, there will be a time in the next month when I do hit my goal where I’ll visit that Moroccan or, that East African food truck after a relaxing day of shopping at Saturday market. It’s just a matter of maintaining my weight where I can still splurge at times without having the guilt hanging over my head because of my weight.
Saving ourselves is super important! It’s a savings you can’t even put a price on…
