Good Morning Corpulent Beauties,
I’m motivated to lose some weight this year, particularly now that lighter clothes have become necessary not to mention my knees. Of course the two or three of you that read this calorie counter understand this is a reoccurring theme. The whole diet thing consists of robbing your body of the things it’s grown to enjoy if not crave, and replacing it with such sensible delights as rice cakes, celery, salads, and carrots. While I have nothing against the occasional salad, just as long as it’s attached to a steak dinner! Unless you’re one of those people who never worry about weight regardless of your lifestyle, I think most of you know exactly what I’m saying.
This time I’ve decided to take an alternative approach. I’m sure this has been tried before, but I’m personally not aware of this idea being pushed around as methodology. Beginning this reduction of intake earlier this week, I’ve already decided if I’m going to accomplish this feat by eating rabbit food, I’m doomed to fail. Again! So, while finishing the last of my yummy carrot sticks I thought, “zuki…; if it all boils down to reducing volume and density then why not just cut my overall intake of the stuff I like to eat”? Don’t change what you’re eating, just cut down. It makes sense doesn’t it? Combined with a regular exercise routine (still working on that) you’re bound to lose weight! I’m reasonably sure I could maintain 225 lbs if I could get there. This means losing 12% of my total body weight.
Considering I’ll lose ten pounds just by walking and doing simple free weight exercises, that leaves the consumption reduction part at 10%. So all I have to do is cut back 10% on the stuff I consume regularly and gradually reach my goal. I’ve always believed one should write one’s goals down then outline how one will arrive. The following is an example of how this will work:
CURRENT CONSUMPTION LEVELS ADJUSTED COMSUMPTION NET%
Two (2) Egg McMuffins – – – – – – One (1) 50%
Half a pot of Coffee – – – – – – – -Six cups 10%
Two (2) beers- – – – – – – – – – – – -One (1) 50%
Soup (1) bowl- – – – – – – – – – – – -One (1 cup) 50%
Eight (8) Red Wines- – – – – – – Four (4) 50%
Four (4) Crunchy Taco Bell Tacos – – Three (3) 25%
As you can see if executed, I have an overall 39% reduction in ingested calories whatever the above totals. Anything requiring self-discipline is always difficult for most of us. The key here is to find that extra hour in your routine to actually work the other parts of your body than the flattening of your ass by sitting on it!
