Happy New Year!
This marks the start of my series of Near Perfect Minutes that revolve around making the right food choices.
Over the years, I have presented several Nutrition Workshops. I changed them profoundly as the information evolved. But I always focused on what’s good to eat and what you should absolutely avoid. Never talked about weight loss. Actually, I did, 1 slide stating that ideal weight is a good idea; good luck with that.
Well, all the requests and suggestions I got regarding these workshops revolved around one thing and one thing only. For over 10 years, you have kept asking this one question… I want to lose weight, how do I do it?
Well… better late than never, here it is. But to add to the fun, I will lose weight with you. I realized, with a few pointed comments from Linda, that I would benefit from dropping 20 lbs. I know how and I will share the step by step with you. Please feel free to share your exploits and successes along the way!
First, let me tell you what I will measure. I will track 2 numbers. My weight, obviously. And I will also measure the size of my waist+hips+right thigh+left thigh. I use this measurement because I know that tweaks to my diet, combined with exercise, will result in changes in my shape as well as my weight. And I want to know that if my weight is dropping at the expense of fat, not muscles.
My number? 130.75
