It's been a while!

Monday, August 06, 2018

I'm so happy to report that I have finally found what works for my body to lose weight and 2 weeks into a program I have lost 4 lbs and several inches. I follow the FITera eating plan and exercise 30 minutes each day, sometimes more.

Finding the motivation to commit (again) to a daily exercise regimen came hard for me. But I dug deep and committed and am very happy now that I did. It feels great to be active daily again, my body loves it and so does my mind and soul. I don't ever want to go back to the sloth I've been the last couple of years. Lung problems had a lot to do with my exercise routine coming to a grinding halt a couple of years ago and then a desk job (the first I've ever had in 40 years of working) put about 12 lbs on me in just over a year.

So I'm just about losing the postmenopausal and desk job weight gain in a healthy way. No starvation, no crazy hours and hours of exercise each day, no brutal-to-my-lungs 45 minute Tabata sessions. Just eating well in a structured fashion (the FITera way) and doing circuit training with abs and some country line dancing in between each week to add up to fun, fitness and weight loss.

    GGRSPARK you can google it. www.fitera.com. I am not trying to advocate the program, just saying that it works for me when nothing else has. I eat pretty much the same foods and calories as before (when I couldn't drop a pound) but now I eat certain types of carbs at certain times in certain combinations for more efficient fat burning. I have at least 3 healthy fat servings each day as well. I'm eating great and I love it. But I'm sure it is not for everyone. I also enjoy the workout videos. I use them in combination with sparkpeople videos and many other workout dvd's/videos I have
