So I have kind of decided to post a few weight loss tips. Now I am in NO WAY a proffesional or an expert on this subject but I have had a lot of people ask me how I lost all my weight (195 lbs to my current weight of 125lbs) So everytime I post I will post ONE tip I learned.
Now before you ask I did no special diet (weight watchers, atkins, south beach etc..... ) I know a lot of people have had a lot of success with these. Honestly I think a lot of them are gimmicks. The basis of ANY weight loss is calorie intake verse caloric burn. You burn more then you eat you lose weight. (I know its more complicated then that and I know there are "specifics" im going off of my journey.
Tip One: Go to your Doctor
Now most of you are looking at me like huh? Doctor? WHY? I HATE THE DOCTOR!!!!!
Now take a deep breath a listen. I discovered a large part of my weight problem was a hormonal inbalance. I got on Birth Control pills and it not only regulated my menstrual cycle but it jump started my weight loss. Also you need to make sure that you don't have any conditions that can cause unexplained weight gain (hypothyroidism, cushings, etc....)
Also have all of your vitamin levels checked. I was massively Vitamin D deficent. A Vitamin D deficency can cause muscle soreness and fatigue (among other things) so Being on Vitamin D can help bring up your energy level (which makes it easier to exercise). Make sure you are taking calcium as well (if you are a woman)
So again GO TO YOUR DOCTOR and have everything checked. You'll be glad you did and it can help immensly in the long run
