— 1) Girl! Go to the supermarket in your sexiest dress or your skinny jeans and heels. Really go there looking your most fabulous, lipstick and all. This’ll remind you who you are and what you’re going for and you’ll get WAAAY better treatment from the staff. Heck, if you’re single you might even meet a potential new dude (supermarkets can be great for that!) and if you’re not single you might get reminded that you’ve still got it baby heheheheheh.
It’s been said that weight loss is 80% diet and 20% exercise (obviously this varies from person to person – if you’re an Olympic swimmer consuming an extraordinary amount of calories in your regular daily life this really won’t apply!). The point is… If what you eat is crucial, then your weight loss lives or dies based on what you put in that shopping trolley. So who you’re being when you’re buying that food will be a big factor in determining who you’re going to be that week or that month. You can almost predict your fat or slim future by looking in that trolley.
— 2) And whatever you do, go to the supermarket with a full stomach. If you shop hungry you’ll buy more and you’ll buy different kinds of food too.
That said, don’t go shopping with an “I’m deprived” attitude. You can buy whatever you want, any sort of play food, just remember that you’re really looking to be eating cleanly and healthily – a nutrient dense diet – 75 to 90% of the time. So it’s not that you “can’t have a donut”, it’s that you’re not living on donuts! Heck this is for your health not just weight loss – you’ll live longer, look younger, have more energy, go to the bathroom more regularly (LOL), feel sexier, have better skin and hair… The list goes on! And you’ll be slimmer.
Love yourself today – whether or not you’ve got weight to lose. You are more than fat or thin. You are you. I saw that when I looked at my ‘before’ pictures recently. It took love for me to transform myself and I had to love myself before any change was possible. The egg had to come before the chicken (not sure about that metaphor girl but you know what I mean!). Hating yourself because you’ve got weight to lose doesn’t help you lose the weight. But loving yourself makes anything possible because you know you’re worth it.
I love you and I’m here rooting for you.
