Studies have shown that people tend to feel full after eating everything that is on their plate...they feel satisfied because all of the food is "gone" and most of the time that plate is holding WAY too much food, so to fix this problem in our house(and what has probably contributed to my husband's weight loss of 70 lbs. in three months),
we eat on a child's plate or appetizer plate right here at home!! We don't even use our larger plates...I'm always washing the "little" plates as my husband calls them! I know here in Texas, most of our restaurants serve food on plates that are THREE times the serving size, some even more than that...guess that's why they say, "every things bigger in Texas"(hate that phrase by the way!) TRY IT OUT AND SEE WHAT YOU THINK! Another key factor to losing those unwanted pounds is, EXERCISE! I know that we are all busy, we all have "other" things to do, but exercise should be like brushing our teeth! Do you think about brushing your teeth each morning and night? NO. So, if you treat working out the same way, it will just fit into your schedule! I am a wife, mother to two boys, NO gym membership, and each day I find ways to fit in exercise! I challenge you this week to find a form of exercise that makes you feel good! If you're not feeling good while exercising, then it sure won't feel like brushing your teeth, right?! RIGHT!
There are some days where I don't feel like jogging, or doing a video, so I turn on the tv to music choice, play my favorite songs and dance around the house until I'm drenched in sweat...Ha! Needless to say, my boys love this type of exercise, they think its hilarious to watch Mommy dance all over the living room :)
