Are You Weight Ready For Fall?

We lost our weight so we could finally enjoy a fun summer of feeling great about ourselves. We flaunted the flat tummy at the beach, and enjoyed thoses shorts and tank top at cookouts.

Summer brought gardens full of fresh veggies and meals were light. We traded ice cream for smoothies and protien bars after a workout. Water was a necessity and we drank it alot due to the heat.

It wasn't easy. We struggled with the scales as we saw our weight shift up and down a couple pounds, but we we managed to keep our weight in that safe range.

But beware. Fall is coming. Are you weight ready? Do you have room to gain a few pounds without gaining to much? Fall will bring cool temperatures and out come the sweat shirts and baggy clothes.

The body we worked so hard for will soon go hidden behind large sweaters and jackets. We could easily lose focus on the body we worked so hard to acheive.



Holidays, ballgames and staying inside more will bring on munchies. It's ok, those big baggy warm clothes will still fit next week and probably all Winter long. Soon spring will come around again and the next thing you know those cute little clothes no longer fit over those cute little muffin tops. 



Strive to keep up healthy eating habits as the temeratures drop and physical activities slow down. Dont stop exercising. When it's too cold to be outside, come up with indoor activities besides lifting a spoon. Enjoy the comfort of food but control the baking. While snacking, stay in the kitchen instead of taking it to the bed or couch. Limit eating in front of the tv, this leads to over eating. Remember portion contol is important.

Opt for the tight jeans when you shop and the spandex leggings when you workout. Dont hide the body you worked so hard to get or you might forget where you put it.

  1. It is hard to explain the admiration for someone who can pull the amount of personal courage and dedication to bring weight under control. I find it hard enough to keep on top of it.
    Love you lady and all who have had the determination to lose a major amount of weight.
    Good post and encouragement here.

  2. I've been on the reverse side of weight problems. I've never seem to able to gain weight on a considerable scale regardless of what I eat.

    My half-first cousin was not so lucky. He quickly grew up to be a fat little boy. He then worked extremely hard and lost a lot of weight. Few years later, depression kicke in hard and now he's fat again

  6. Don't laugh. I started getting fat after I was wed. I went to the gym to bring my body back. The workouts were so heavy that my body (not me) feared gaining size. (plus I'm a physical person)
