I’ve been looking over my weight loss progress, and I realized today that I’ve weighed the same amount for the past four months. That’s good in a lot of ways – I’ve maintained my 40 pound weight loss since my son’s birth in January, and this lower weight has become my body’s new “normal.”
But it’s bad in some ways too. At 226 pounds and 5’4″ tall, I am still obese, and although I’m not pre-diabetic, having this extra weight on my frame is bad for my joints and my overall health. I reached 226 in July, and when I was still 226 in August, I figured I was stuck in a plateau, and that I should ride it out.
But it’s November now, and I’m still 226. Plateau’s don’t last four months – not when you have as much weight to lose as I do. So I reevaluated my eating habits, and I came to the conclusion that if I want to lose this weight, I’m going to need to change my nutrition program to one that offers more structure, boundaries, and evidence of success with the obese.
What’s the new program, you may ask?
It’s Lindora Lean for Life!
Lindora Lean for Life has a lot of qualities that I appreciate. It requires fruits and vegetables at every meal, as well as protein. It limits, but doesn’t eliminate, whole grains. Most importantly, it isn’t a program of pre-packaged meals. I know that if I don’t cook the food I eat myself, I’m not going to learn anything about good nutrition, so any program that ships ready-to-eat meals to my door is out.
Instead of doing that, Lindora will teach me good eating habits through structured choices and nutrition education!
I’m really excited for this program! If you want to join it with me, you can visit the Lindora website and find a clinic near you, or if you are on a budget like me, you can just buy the book, which has all the information you need to follow the program!
I can’t wait to see my progress!!
