Losing Weight is Hard

Today is the first day of 50 and We start today!! My FASTer Way To Fat Loss Birthday Round!

I don’t feel different, except my fingers are a little more swollen today. This I know is from the extra carbs, sweets and adult drinks I have had on our vacation week and birthday weekend.

Day 1 Prep week of the FASTer Way To Fat Loss can be scary, overwhelming, exciting and hard at first. Learning new skills and habits are HARD. I promise it does gets easier and it is sustainable for life.

I have been there and I am still working to get my BMI normal. I am still obese, but I am not morbidly obese as when I started. I no longer need high blood pressure meds and I have lowered my pre diabetes fasting blood glucose.

Harder is ignoring the risk factors you know will come if you do not take that first step to work on losing the weight and changing your lifestyle. . Harder is the multiple doctor appointments you will need for the complications that may come with being overweight.

Risk factors you face when being obese vary from bending over to tie your shoes and being able to breath, to heart disease that can lead to a stroke.

Risk factors from Healthline:

  • type 2 diabetes
  • heart disease
  • high blood pressure
  • certain cancers (breast, colon, and endometrial)
  • stroke
  • gallbladder disease
  • fatty liver disease
  • high cholesterol
  • sleep apnea and other breathing problems
  • arthritis
  • infertility

Today is also the day I start my 21 day reset with the FASTer Way in our membership.

I will be doing a 5 day reset and then jump into the FASTer Way cycle with the rest of our 1.9K members. Ready to fill my body with whole food and an increase dose of micronutrients and anti oxidants.

Some of the ingredients we will be using in our 5 day reset gives your body a boost of micronurtients, antioxidants, boost your metabolism, reduces cholesterol, improves your hormones, skin, flushes your liver and kidney.

Just think this is all with food you buy at the grocery store, not a pill, but food. Keep shopping the outer parameter of your grocery store or your frozen veggies and fruits.

Ingredient Benefits:

  • Green tea- antioxidant, anti-imflammatory, boosts metabolism
  • Lemon juice-boosts immune system, aids in digestion and balances pH, flushes liver and kidneys.

  • Coconut water -vitamins and electolytes

  • Ginger – helps with digestion, reduces inflammation and lowers blood sugar.

I know hard. I know when there is ice cream in the freezer and nights on the coach with Kenny and we snack. He does this nightly, I pick and choose wisely.

I also know we get to choose the path we want to walk in life. Do we want to continue working daily to make those healthier choices and put on our tennis shoes to get our workout in or a walk, because we can? YES

The other choice is ignoring the food we eat and not making time to exercise. This will only lead to us sitting on the sidelines of life cheering others on.

Why not start now and cheer yourself on. It takes practice not perfection. Let’s start working on hard, so we can take control of our life and live it healthier and with purpose participating, not just on the sidelines.

Join me today for my online FWTFL course. XO Cheryl
