How to control Hunger

"It was late at night after 10:30, and I went  to the kitchen to get something to eat, Because you know thats what a fatty does..." Wendy Williams
Seriously, this comment descibes me, and it doesn't  even have to be late at night. After my daughter was born, I found that I was doing this ALL the time.  Here are a few great ideas that have helped me control my hunger and focus on achieving my weight loss goals.

01. Chew gum
02. Fiber/protien combo aka protien bars etc.
03. Make sure you get enough fiber 25-35g a day. Use a soluble fiber supplement

New Year's Resolution: Lose Weight



As a stay at home mom,  I realize that if I am to ever achieve my weightloss goals,  I have got to get serious and start demanding more out of myself throughout the day. This involves setting strong boundaries when it comes to food and exercise. I literally have to suck it up and get tough with myself, pushing through the mental blocks that come, such as wanting to stay in pj's and slippers all day. I'm definitely realizing that the stronger I train, the more I am able to handle all the stress that comes my way each day. Establishing a good routine will help get the weightloss results I've been looking for.
