It's easy to see when we need to lose weight. HOW to do so is horribly confusing to most people simply because of the marketing that exists for weight loss. Ever-changing diet plans, new scientific discoveries that deliberately get misinterpreted in order to sell things, celebrities touting their eating plan as the One True Way to Lose Weight, etc. There's a bewildering amount of information, and every diet plan out there says something different is what you HAVE to do in order lose weight.
So with the start of the new year comes resolutions. Yeah, you know what I'm talking about! Thing is, that's something I haven't done in a long time. But I know a lot of people do, and one of the things that tops the list is lose weight. So I thought I'd share some things I learned when I was losing weight in hopes it might help one or two people.
Everyone has their own ideas on how to lose weight and what products to get and what exercises to use and what foods to avoid and so on. Which makes it super confusing when a person decides to actually lose weight! I know that I tried things in the past and gave up because I hated it. But I have since hit on something that worked for me, so I thought I would post about it. And while organizing my thoughts, realized I can split this into several posts. Partly so that I can expand on some ideas and not make a fucking HUGE post, and partly to give me more content to post here. ^_^;
So I'll be sharing several posts on things related to weight loss that may or may not help you or someone you know. Is my way the One True Way to Lose Weight? Of course not! But I will expand on what worked for me, and by doing so, maybe someone can find something that works for them. Everyone will have a different method, so trying different suggestions from people can help you find what works for you. So look for new posts every Friday for a little while, and if you have any questions, you know where to find me!
I'm not going to harp on the election and results, enough people are doing it that the drama llamas are working overtime. But I will comment on one thing I've learned from all of this.
No matter how much we as a country believe that progress has been made in areas of gender and race equality, the fact that enough people voted in a racist, misogynist sociopath as our president says we haven't come nearly as far as we think we have. And that makes me a sad panda.
Why are you sending me text to format into the letterhead when it's just as easy for you to type in the letterhead instead of sending me a regular word file with what you want??
