Diet and Exercise

This is the area of my life that has been out-of-control. Since the birth of my twins in 2002, I have lost (and then gained back) 15 lbs four times. I can do (much) better. So I’m making small decisions, good choices, maintainable goals… to be better.

Here are my solutions to do better:

  • No eating after 7pm.
  • Drink water
  • Get to the gym 4 days a week
  • Walk after evening meals
  • Avoid hydrogenated fats
  • Avoid high fructose corn syrup

  2. The no eating after 7 REALLY helps!! It is a hard time of the evening..When I feel I am getting the munchies..I will make myself a cup of tea w/ splends and a tiny bit of Fat free half and half!!

    • i have to eat after 7 because its ramadan.

  3. great tips..

  4. I’ve lost nearly 80 pounds on Weight Watchers in the past two years–and I eat right up until the time I go to bed. I guess that’s an individual thing, the not eating after 7. And I drink LOADS of fat free half-and-half. Coffee, which does not keep me awake, is an absolute staple for me.

    I think for me the biggest factor in weight loss has been exercising an hour a day, every day. Latest research shows that those who lose weight and successfully keep it off exercise a total of at least 55 minutes per day. (That doesn’t meant a straight hour, but it can. It can be broken up to a couple or three different periods of real exertion.)

    There’s no one diet for every body. I found after a lot of experimentation that the aspartame in Diet Coke tended to stall my weight loss, so I switched to Diet Rite–sweetened w/Splenda, no caffeine, no sodium–and I like the taste better, too!
