It’s such a simple theory. We often overlook it. Ignore it. Sometimes the simple things are the hardest to grasp. But, this theory is tried and true. Burn more calories than you take in and you will lose weight. Ain’t that somethin’?

With the help of my new training team, Northwest Personal Training I burned plenty of calories last week, woo! I understood, my work was not over when I left the studio so I was conscious of my food choices. Alright, I was downright vigilant. Proud to say, as a result, I lost five pounds. Yup, just like that. Five pounds. The simple, tried and true theory does work. No complicated formulas. Just blood pumping, sweaty, exercise and taking in less calories by eating wholesome fresh food.

Wait a minute. This simple theory could work if you even eat junk food. Right? Yes, It can. But, if you’re looking to improve your overall quality of health while losing weight than it’s probably best to take in less calories by eating wholesome fresh food. On the simplest level: Eat less, move more. Just like that.

No Gimmicks. No Frills. No Magic Pills.

I’m looking forward to my second week with my new training team. Week two goals: Gain more strength, build endurance, and duh — to shed more pounds and inches.

I am a product – and now a survivor – of childhood obesity. As a child, my family always told me that my extra weight was merely baby fat and I’d eventually grow out of it. I never did. Instead, my childhood is filled with memories of not being able to ride a bike, flattening its training wheels from being over the recommended weight, and avoiding P.E. classes by any means necessary. For years, I wore my fatness like a wounded soldier wears a Purple Heart - with pride. I owned the look. I dressed it up. I worked the room. There wasn't a skinny girl who intimidated me. I made sure my hair was laid just right. Nails polished. Outfits coordinated to the tee. Accessories to compliment every outfit. But everyone has a breaking point, and mine came in the spring of 2004 when I tipped the scale at nearly 400 pounds 388 to be exact. I was MISERABLE trapped inside of that body. I no longer wore my Purple Heart with pride. Rather, I was ashamed and frightened. Ashamed that I had allowed food to become my everything – frightened I would die because of it. Drastic times called for drastic measures... Today, I’m bound and determined to live a better, healthier, active lifestyle. I realize I’m no longer a passenger in my life, I’m the driver. I’m overcoming my inhibitions and I’m slowly but surely saying farewell to my old childhood nemesis, obesity. For once and for all, Farewell Fatso!
