We are slowly working on opening back up after the COVID-19 restrictions in my area. I heard on the radio that the average person gained 15 pounds while working/stuck at home. This is very sad. I participated in a 19 day challenge with my work peeps that had a different exercise each day that was either 19 reps; 1 minute 90 second hold or 19 minutes. I also gave up desserts and sweets for Lent. All of this was beneficial to my overall health but, I'm sad to admit that I didn't lose any weight. I seem to keep gaining and losing the same 5 pounds.
So, here I am again, starting a new plan. I really want to lose a total of 50 - 75 pounds. I know that it's more achievable when you break it down into smaller increments so I'm going to start with losing 10 pounds. My plan for this is to eliminate "whites". I know how difficult this is but I'm willing to give it my best shot. Only whole-grains and minimally processed foods will be consumed. I plan to exercise as much as possible, too.
Any encouragement/suggestions/tips are welcomed! Let's get this done.
