Have you ever felt intimidated by the idea of starting a weight loss journey? The stigma that comes with weight loss is steeped in one-size-fits-all diet plans. Don’t think you have to deprive yourself of delicious meals, starve yourself to see the pounds drop, and work out for hours every single day. It doesn’t have to be that way. With these simple menus that I used to lose 30 pounds, I’ve been able to keep the weight off for almost 10 years.
It was my approach that inspired me to co-found SkinnyMs., a company focused on helping women lose weight and keep it off. By eating whole foods, implementing portion control, and exercising regularly, I was successful. Even walking 30 minutes daily is a doable way to get started with an exercise plan. Build upon this daily ritual as you begin to shed pounds.
I’m often asked how I’ve kept 30 pounds off for such a long time, and the basis of my journey is what SkinnyMs. is all about: the key to maintaining my weight loss long-term, and what I believe is the most accessible and tried and true approach for others, was to create healthy habits that have become part of my routine.
I want to share some basic insight into my approach so you can understand not only what SkinnyMs. represents, but just how simple it is to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Before I get started, you should know that while it may be simple, it doesn’t always mean it’s easy. Getting started, staying consistent, and knowing how to allow yourself a treat here and there is all about practicing mindfulness, to which I invite you to take a look at how mindful meditation can help you in your weight loss goals.
