My Weight-Loss Secrets

Recently, I was asked by someone "what is your weight-loss secret?" I had to think about it and I don't think there's much of a secret here.

As I was on my journey of losing 15 pounds these past few months, I just tried my best to stay the course, even when I didn't see the results. When I would gain a little weight, I wouldn't give up. I pressed on until I saw the results I wanted to see. I guess my weight-loss secret is to just keep going, through the good and the bad. 

Most importantly, I made sure not to make any changes that I couldn't keep up with for life. For example, I can't go the rest of my life without eating carbs; so I found a way to lose weight with carbs in my diet. {I also can't go the rest of my life without chocolate, so I give myself a little bit of chocolate every day.}

The truth is, I don't know if there is a universal weight-loss secret for us all. In my own personal journey, there's been a lot of trial and error to find what works best for me. The thing is, everybody is different and more importantly, everyone's body is different. For example, I have a problem with binge eating, so I stay away from depriving myself of anything in particular. Allowing myself to have a little bit of everything keeps me on track, and helps me to avoid binge-eating. That's just me!

If there was a weight-loss secret out there, I would have to say it's only something you can find for yourself through trial and error. Perhaps there is a special weight-loss secret for us all. Personally, I know that when I gain weight from an over-indulgent weekend, I can just drink a ton of water and stay within calories for a couple days after and the excess weight will {usually} disappear from the scale. It's my own little secret that I have found works for me.

Readers, what is a weight-loss "secret" that works for you? Please share!
