Many of break the new years resolution of losing weight.
There are many ways to lose weight:
Take advantage of the miraculous invention of duct tape and tape your mouth shut.
Put a lock on the fridge door.
Put those childproof locks on the kitchen cabinet doors (whether you have a small child or not).
Don't let your husband buy all those snacks in the grocery store that he says are for the kids (who are we kidding, they aren't for the kids).
Stop buying all those sausage biscuits at the fast food place down the road. (I am not guilty of this, but my husband loves them)
Hope that Hershey's goes out of business. (Just kidding!) I love chocolate!
About the only way to lose weight is to have willpower, which is something I lack.
Ask yourself before putting that snack in your mouth, "Am I really hungry or is this just a habit?" Then lay it back down and put the junk out of sight so you don't see the tasty, but bad for you treats, every time you walk by them.
Stop snacking at night. (This is my downfall, I love to eat in the evening, whether I'm hungry or not, it's just a habit)
Walk, walk, walk. In the wintertime in our parts, this is hard to do. I can't stand the cold wind against my face. But I find if I walk on a regular basis, I don't gain weight. My neighbor and I walk around and around our subdivision in nice weather. We gossip (I mean chat) while we walk and the time flies by. An hour is up before you know it.
So this is what I now have where the Christmas tree stood a few days ago.
It is one of the small treadmills, that isn't run by electric, so it's not as noisy (you don't have to turn the TV up high to hear it while you're walking). I find that if you put it on an incline it is easier to walk on. I guess the downward gravity helps. These are less expensive (especially if you get it off your favorite neighbor at a yard sale) and less heavy, and doesn't take up as much room as the big expensive ones.
Walking is a much better way of losing weight than having to eat these because you caught a nasty virus off of your son.
I must say, it works, tho. I've lost 2 pounds since yesterday! But I'd much rather be well and walking on my treadmill.
What are your best suggestions on losing that winter weight that creeps on you from the continuous buffet of Halloween candy, Thanksgiving delights and Christmas yummies?
Looking forward to hearing your ideas.
