Create Your Own Weight Loss Plan

Since I quit smoking seven years ago I’ve had an ongoing battle with my weight. In the beginning I ballooned to a very large size 18 or  1x. I often tell people it was like my metabolism didn’t just quit working but actually started doing the opposite of what it always had. No matter what I did–eat carrots, run on the treadmill for 90 minutes a night–nothing seemed to stop the weight gain in the first couple of years. Thankfully my body eventually rid itself of all cigarette toxins and gradually I returned to feeling normal. Then I started the long road to reclaim my figure. I’m still not there. I’ve made leaps and bounds, but I’m still not the size I would like to be. The journey continues. However, throughout the course of all these years I’ve learned an awful lot about diet and exercise. So today I posted a new article on the Helium website about The Science of Weight Loss or How to Create Your Own Weight Loss Plan. If you’re mystified by counting calories, you’ll want to give it a read. Click here and let me know what you think. I might do some more articles on the subject of weight because it is one I have become quite knowledgable about.

  1. That’s a really good article, Kellie.

    I use The Daily Plate, http://www.tdp.com, and I really like it. I’ve lapsed lately, but it’s still a really good site.

    I’ve got a pretty good exercise regimen going for myself, but I’ve given up restricted diets because I’m always so miserable. I’m a size 18, too, but have decided that it’s more about achieving a certain level of fitness rather than losing weight. I live in the mountains and the hiking is excellent here; the more fit I am, the easier the hiking gets, and the more challenging hiking I can do. There are a lot of mountains to climb here!
