Losing weight is hard. Period.
Without motivation and dedication losing weight is almost impossible. As Paul and I have been losing weight one of our biggest struggles is to stay dedicated every day. We have found that it is hard to stick to eating healthy every day, day after day…especially after a cheat meal or a weekend when we are not at home and out of our routine.
Through time we have learned how important it is to stick to our routine and if we fall off for a day or two to just pick back off where we left off and keep fighting for the end goal. It is not all about losing weight but creating a healthy lifestyle for ourselves and our future little ones. We are motivated and dedicated through our routine that we have created.
The best advice I was given by a friend has been: If you don’t plan then you are planning to fail!
Meal planning is the number one priority we have going into every week. It is is so helpful to go into the week knowing what we will be eating all week and to already have it prepared.Every Sunday we prepare our meals for the week. This has been the most helpful thing at keeping us on track!
Seeing our progress though pictures is a huge motivator for us! Here are some pictures of Paul and I in the past year through our weightloss journey.
