Yay for you........ feel free to check out the Sunday weigh in for May 5 and post your results there.......
You need to calculate your calorie needs, based on your height, weight, age, and activity level, then reduce calories enough to create a deficit.
Eliminate sugary drinks, treats from your diet; concentrate on lean protein, complex carbs, drink water, tea (unsweetened), etc. Eat lots of veggies, because fiber fills you up.
Aim for at least 30 minutes of exercise, most days of the week.
What's been working for me is keeping a food diary. Writing down everything I eat has really kept me aware that I was kidding myself when I would think, "I'm not eating that much, why am I not losing weight?" Now that I realize how much I was REALLY eating I'm doing better.
Basic weight loss tips are
•Have a good look at your eating habits. The best way to do this is to keep a food diary.
•Eat a piece of fruit before lunch or dinner. This will help you eat a little less food.
•Have a snack between the meals
•Consume veggies and fruits instead of fatty foods
•Do workouts regularly to burn the more calories.
•Drink minimum of 12 glasses of water in single day.
