Today I want to tell you how I started my way to a slim figure. Many people asked me about it, therefore, it seems to me that the topic will be quite relevant. I’ll sign everything in steps.
Step one – define the goal
First of all, I took a new notebook and wrote down the date of the beginning of the process of losing weight. Here it is – my start!
Then I determined for myself how many pounds I want to lose weight. I got on the scales and recorded my current weight. Immediately set a goal, prescribing the weight to which you want to strive.
I did the same with measurements. I took my measurements with a measuring tape. I measured the circumference of the chest, waist and hips.
I didn’t manage to write how much I would like to lose weight in centimeters, but I decided that I would just record the results.
Step two – we go to the specialists
Yes, yes, I went to the doctor – to the endocrinologist. I decided to consult if I could lose weight and how best to do it.
The doctor ordered me to take tests and at the next admission she said that everything is in order – I can start to get rid of those extra pounds.
She didn’t recommend anything to me about the diet, besides the need to visit a nutritionist. But such expenses are not for me, so I decided to lose weight on my own.
Step three – proper nutrition
This stage seemed to me the most important. It was not very easy, but I still managed to switch to the correct mode.
I downloaded a calorie counter, got a food diary, reduced portions. I also refused flour, sweet, fatty, fried and alcoholic beverages.
I also painted the time of eating – I decided to eat exactly by the hour. I also did not eat after 18:00. And if I did not have time for dinner, then I saw kefir or low-fat yogurt.
Step Four – Physical Exercise
I worked so hard on the first day that I didn’t have enough strength for even the next 3 days. Now I can say for sure that in the first days it is impossible to be very zealous.
After some time, was able to properly distribute the exercise. I gradually moved from light exercises to more complex ones, and then I began to perform a complex aimed at all muscle groups. In the warm season, I also began to go to the pool and go for walks.
Step Five – Promotion
I decided that I would promote myself for achievements. And for my first assignment, for starting losing weight, I decided to reward myself. I bought myself electronic scales in the kitchen – I had long dreamed about them.
So, step by step, I began my journey to harmony. And where did you start to lose weight?
