 How To Follow Shed It or Dread It Lifestyle Improvement Plan:

Track, track, track your calories. Get used to it. Once you have achieved your goal, you will be used to what you can/cannot eat and how much to eat of it. Most importantly, you must exercise. Exercise will cause you to initially gain weight, but you are building muscle mass. Muscle weighs more than fat so in the process of converting it will look like you are getting nowhere. Your body is just adjusting and will balance out. You will get to your goal the right way and you will keep it off.

I started counting calories with Fat Secret in January 2010 and did really good until the Saints started winning. I fell off track and didn't have a good support system in place for those times when I didn't stick to the plan. As a result, I regained ...

monicagrumme's top tips

1.Utilize all knowledge from previous diets. There is no bad diets, just fad diets. The key with all of them is to keep it off. Not just drop the pounds. This is why I named this program the Lifestyle Improvement Plan. It is our choice to be healthier, live longer, be happier and feel good every step of the way.
2.Know your strengths and weaknesses and learn to recognize when they are happening. Journal about them so you can read how you avoided temptation in the beginning. After weeks of dieting, you can go back and read when you are really needing encouragement. To think you did it once, you can do it again.
3.To achieve your ideal weight, you must commit to changing your lifestyle. Make a commitment to go ALL IN. Retrain your brain into eating smaller portions and control the temptations to eat highly fattening foods.
4.Reward yourself. Any reward will do. If it is a trip to Disney, the mountains, buying a new car. Getting a new purse or buying a new suit, reward yourself when you achieve your goal. You deserve it! Don't forget to give yourself mini rewards for sticking to the program. Stay away from food rewards, do something you truly enjoy. Go see a movie, a play, concert, something, anything. Restrict yourself if you fall off track.
5.Believe you can do it. Meditate on the final result. Think about how good you will feel about yourself after you attain your goal.
6.Temptation looking at you in the eye? Start saying "Nah, that really doesn't look good". Think about the fat that you have to cut out of raw chicken, beef and pork and how it accumulates in your cells and around your heart. We are what we eat!

About / History

Been there done that. Yes, they all work, but are they long term? Something happens that causes you to fall off the wagon. We are innundated with diet plans so, which one should you choose. Well, after being on so many, I know the basics of low carb, high protein, supplements with Amino Acids and proteins. So, I am using a little of all that knowledge to keep it simple. Tracking your caloric intake and exercise is the key to developing your own diet plan.
