Weight Loss–188.2 and Dropping

Yesterday someone asked me how I was loosing weight. I replied, random jumping jacks and salads.

“That’s all?!”

No. I also portion control more than 1/2 my weekly meals. Those salads have tons of vegies and protien from lean chicken or steak. I exercise during the commercials to the Biggest Loser. I park away from store entrances. Whole grains. Whole wheat. Brown Rice. Veggies. Fruit, fruit, fruit! Lots of garlic and spices. Dark chocolate helps keep cravings away. I pack an afternoon snack for between 2-4 so I do not get ravenous on the way home.

You must eat breakfast within 30 minutes of waking to jump-start your metabolism, too.

And the biggest tool–I weigh myself everyday! Every morning before I eat. This lets me know if I need to adjust my plan for the day. I have a digital scale.

Are you working on health and weight issues? How are you doing? What works for you?
