Eat Less: Move More



One of the main components to losing weight is a simple theme that I like to follow…Eat Less:Move More!  There are quite a bit of diets out there for us to follow, believe me, I’ve tried a lot of them.  But all diets come back to one thing…Eat Less: Move More!   Another trick I learned years ago was to use smaller plates.  This morning I made a two egg omelet with spinach and used a small plate which made my portions look enormous.

Sometimes weight loss and exercise is just an exercise in changing one’s mindset.  Just like changing the size of my breakfast plate gave me the illusion that I was eating more, when I was actually eating less.

Deep down inside, I think we all know what we need to do in order to take the weight off.  Lots of times it just comes down to changing our mindset and being around people who are supportive.

That is why our #VRide is so good for so many people.  We can work at our own pace and receive all the encouragement that each one of us needs in order to feel comfortable and…affirmed!

Today I walked 3 miles and rode the stationary bike for 15 miles…It feels good to take care of myself!

    Smaller plates…great tip! It sure made a difference when I switched from those 12″ platters that used to be so popular to a reasonable 8″ plate. Congrats on the exercise! Now, I’m off to the gym to support my own mindset shift. 🙂
