As someone who has gone through weight issues on and off since I had my second child back in 2010, I’m always looking for helpful how-to’s or weight loss strategies. As I blogged about my own weight loss strategies I used, I found myself looking to connect with other people who had a similar journey. Some used supplements and “non-traditional” methods of weight loss, while other friends just simply changed their eating habits, planned out meals to the max and took the plunge and jumped on the treadmill.
That was exactly the case for Tammy with Organize Yourself Skinny! I recently received a copy of her eBook and a bonus 4 week meal planner. I’m excited to share what I learned from her journey and some common things we both did to achieve our goals. In her eBook, Organize Yourself Skinny Tammy lists 5 weight loss strategies she used to achieve her goals and lose over 40 pounds.
Here’s the 5 strategies she used..
Accountability: Tammy held herself accountable by using a food journal. I speak about this in my own weight loss journey as well and recommend My Fitness Pal as a way to track what you’re eating so you know how many calories and fat you’re consuming.
Eating Guidelines: By writing out your weight loss goals it makes it more real to you. Having these goals set in front of you only makes it that much more realistic and keeps your true goal within your mind at all times.
Meal Planning: Meal planning is such an important role, without planning out your meals it’s much easier to grab something unhealthy, graze or just simply break down and order a pizza.
Make-Ahead Meals: Tammy opted to make her meals ahead of time and it proved to be a great benefit to feeding her whole family while making healthy choices for everyone.
Exercise: There’s so many benefits to starting and staying with an exercise plan! Better sleep, increased energy and reduced stress are just some of the benefits. Tammy outlines her exercise routine in a similar fashion that I choose as well. Getting both cardio and strength training in is so important to not only increase endurance but also gets you those toned abs and legs!
A great feature that I like Tammy added in her Organize Yourself Skinny eBook is at the end she gives a printable getting started checklist! She lists all 5 weight loss strategies and has a check for each of the categories! It’s super helpful in keeping everything in front of you. At the end of the day we’re all human and make mistakes. Our will power will eventually give out and we’ll end up choosing the wrong meals or make bad choices. And you know what, that’s ok! With the help of these incredible strategies you’ll be on your way in no time!
Another great idea is to find a few accountability partners, someone who is sharing a similar path but you can lean on each other when you feel down, overwhelmed or simply just not seeing the results you want.As a bonus to Organize Yourself Skinny you will receive a full 4 week meal planner with the exact recipes that Tammy used to help her shed 40lbs. It’s all about variety and her 4 week meal planner is just that! One such recipe is her Just Peachy Green Smoothie that is listed in week 4 for breakfast. I’m a big fan of smoothies to help get the extra veggies and protein you need on a daily basis. Just Peachy Green has just 202 calories and only 7 grams of fat. A great combination of good ingredients and with the Chia Seeds added you’ll be getting a healthy does of fiber as well!
