Losing weight the healthy way
Throughout high school and college I was called 'healthy'. I would eat/drink whatever I wanted and never worked out. I was extremely round, and not at all in shape or toned. After college, when I bagged my first job, I started to gain a little bit of belly weight but surprisingly, managed to lose it really fast. An ex, who was a personal trainer, used to tell me that my body was more responsive to working out than anyone he had ever seen. But I hated to work out, so I would do it for as long as it took to get back to my "healthy" self. Now, at 26, my body is *very* different, and I can tell that my metabolism has slowed considerably. I am now carrying 20 extra lbs. that I gained since college.
So, my quest to be skinny by the end of this year has started, just about NOW.
What do I do first? Well, I don't register myself to the nearest gym, nor do I contact a relative who is a nutritionist. But I get up to fetch myself a nice cold coffee to begin this infamous 'quest' *sigh*
Anyway, 100 sips later (cold coffee is a saviour in summer time) I decide to go to Google-'mata' (the answer to all our problems) and type 'How to lose fat QUICKLY'.
Hmmm, there's this one thing about me, I am one impatient heck of a bugger. If I have to lose 20 lbs that were piled on in the last 10 years, it had to be done asap. *sigh - part 2*
But, is that realistic? Do all the diet crash courses sustain in the long run? Is it worth it? Well, I got my answer on Google again. Guess what, it is NOT worth it . When trying to lose weight, lose it the healthy way. Lose just your weight, and not your MIND. The three simple steps to a healthy you are: Exercise, Good, balanced diet and a happy mind. This combination can fetch you not just a skinny body, but a FIT body.
Well, I am definitely going to start up my routine just about now. What about you?
