Weight Loss Challenge Update

weight loss goalsIt’s been quite some time since my last weight loss update, so here it is. Not much has changed in terms of my weight according to the scale, but I can certainly see changes in the way my clothes are fitting, and overall I feel lighter. In other words, I have made definite progress in achieving my overall health goals, so I’m happy with that.

My eating habits have “ok” lately. I eat healthy foods, but I also sneak in a snack here and there (i.e., ice cream or cookie), but I think it’s important to treat yourself now and then. The main thing that I’m currently working on is portion control. I’m slowly reducing my meal portion size, and it’s going well so far.

My exercise routine has consisted almost exclusively of weight training with a little cardio mixed in. I am a strong believer in the benefits of lifting weights, because it has personally worked well for my health and fitness over the past decade. A proper weight training regiment not only helps you build muscle, but it also helps your body to burn calories more efficiently in the short term and the long term.

So even though my weight has remained relatively steady, I know that is in large part due to the increase in muscle mass I’ve experienced over the past month and a half. This is very common when weight lifting, and you’ll often see your weight start to drop over a period of time due to the increased muscle mass burning away calories more efficiently.

Hope everyone else’s weight loss goals are going well!

    I’ve just started losing weight as well but not that successful =(. I eat less and do exercise, is that enough? Goodluck and hope you can reach your goal soon.

    I have bookmarked your site and will be returning and linking to it. We share several interest and congrats on you achieving your goals. The one thing that people miss is that health is a lifestyle and not a one off. Most people lack the discipline and therein lies the problem. But sometime there are products that have helped to provide the resources people need to take the steps. I recommend a look at my site for stuff that works.

    I am new to your site but thought I would add two cents. You may have already covered this but one supplement that I would recommend to help your overall digestive health is probiotics. I swear by them!
