Okay, what was I just talking about a couple of days ago before BigSis had to throw in the Triple Chocolate Birthday Cake recipe? Oh yeah, I was talking about trying to lose 5 pounds before Summer!
Thanks for the recipe, BigSis, but there ain’t no way I’m going to have something that good in this house when I’m trying to lose weight and trying to get SirHoney to eat more fruits and veggies!
It’s so nice to be able to make something like that and take it to work to share with everyone. I know they all love it when you bring one of your homemade treats to work to share!
I bet this chick doesn’t eat cake!
I want to share an interesting article that I just read in the June 2009 whole living body+soul magazine. The title of the article is “Secrets to Healthy Weight Loss.” After speaking with several weight loss experts, the writer of the article identifies the eight most common reasons people struggle with their weight.
Here are the 8 Biggest Obstacles:
- Not enough exercise
- The wrong foods
- Mindless eating
- Getting older
- Poor portion control
- Stress and fatigue
- Goal plateau
- Yo-yo dieting
So, you’re supposed to find the one that best describes your biggest obstacle and follow their strategies. If you fit into more than one category, you just combine the strategies to best address your needs.
I think that I fit into three of these categories. Those would be Getting Older, Stress, and Goal Plateau. Within each category, there are three or four solutions on how to overcome these obstacles. They actually have some pretty good suggestions.
You can read the entire “Secrets to Healthy Weight Loss” article here on whole living. As always, we appreciate any comments or suggestions that you may have for us! If you’d rather see more awesome chocolate cake recipes instead of reading about weight loss problems, you just let me know and I’ll put BigSis right on it!
