I didn’t lose 150 pounds by eating healthy every day, never giving in to temptation, never missing a workout – far from it!
Instead, any time I slipped I said “Ok, it’s done, it’s behind me now, but my next day, my next meal, my next opportunity to work out, I’m going to be better!
Lunch is generally a salad comprised of lots of leafy greens, yummy vegetables, and a lot of protein like salmon, tuna, or cottage cheese. It can be mixed with lime juice and cilantro and used as a taco dinner sour cream substitute.
Low in calorie and high in protein which leaves you feeling full, the creative possibilities are endless!
” It gets easier over time, you learn to love food that fuels your body in healthy, nutritious ways, you learn to love sweating and working out. It's such a great feeling to accomplish a health goal, so why not inspire others to do the same?

I reached my weight loss plateau around 170 pounds, after a 140 pound weight loss.
There was no “aha” moment or “turning point” for me that I can point to that got me started going to the gym.My breakfast typically consists of a ½ cup of oatmeal with stevia and cinnamon or flax seed, and some kind of lean protein – egg whites or greek yogurt. For dinner, I eat A LOT of vegetables and another lean protein like tofu or fish. It can be dressed up with Stevia and cinnamon as a nice yogurt snack, accompanied with apple slices or other fruit.My morning snack is usually high in protein, like a protein shake or Greek yogurt and vegetables. I just recently made the decision to go pescetarian as I found red meat and even chicken and turkey to be too calorie-dense for my liking compared to the amount of protein I was getting. It can also be mixed with any kind of spice you like – garlic seasoning, French onion soup dry seasoning, or just plain old salt & pepper as a yummy veggie dip.Do you have specific suggestions for avoiding temptations? Know and believe that the best way to show yourself and the body the respect it deserves is by fueling it with good, healthy, nutritious food and showing it good exercise.Sugar, chemicals, processed food, it’s all bad for you, no way around it – love your body and it will love you back! My life since weight loss has had it’s up and downs, and everything in between, but I wouldn’t change a single day of it!
