I completely got off track over the holiday weekend! It really doesn't bother me like it once did. I know that I can jump right back on track because my healthy living habits are part of my life now. I'm not on a fad diet or any kind of pills. When it all comes down to it, you really don't need that stuff.
You simply cannot drastically restrict calories, eat zero carbs, or take pills or supplements every day for the rest of your life. It's just not realistic. There are so many drinks/shakes/pills on the market for weight loss. Over time, these things come and go. Companies go out of business. Whatever...
What happens if you've depended upon these things to reach your weight loss goals and then they're just gone?
Healthy eating, water, unprocessed foods, working out..... These things will be here for the long run. Those basics will always be available. You don't have to complicate life and your efforts by going overboard.
My weight loss has been steady and slow. But the key to all of this is that I have found a way to live for the rest of my life. That's bigger than the weight loss. I can have the body I want without expensive shakes, teas, pills, or supplements. You don't have to spend thousands of dollars on things that could eventually hurt you more than help you.
Let's get back to the basics, y'all. Whole foods (lean meats, fruits, veggies, grains), plenty of water, and move your booty. That's all it takes. There's no "secret" to it.
