bout a year and a half ago(August 2015) I snapped some pics of me in a sports bra and workout pants and was shocked at belly!
Yes, I'd lost a lot of weight and was happy with my progress, but whoa...the belly flab was shocking.
Of course, I look crazy in the pics (my bathroom mirror is dirty) because I really had no intention of sharing them.
Around November(right before I turned 39), my weight loss goals really picked up steam and was hitting them all. I decided to see if I could get a flat stomach by 40, thus started the hashtag #FlatBy40.
So, let's get into it. I'm just going to tell you the things you know, but don't want to hear and are really hoping there is another way. There isn't. Or I would have found it.
*Drink water, lots of it. Like lots. If you think you drink enough, you don't drink more.
*Eat veggies with every meal. Every meal, even breakfast. There are a ton of free recipes and meal plans online and bloggers who talk & post about their meals only. I don't do that, but they are easy to find if you need guidance in that area. One of my favorites is Oh She Glows -http://ohsheglows.com/ she even has some guidelines for vegan, gluten free and other specific diets.
*Exercise. I don't mean you have to train for a marathon, but you need to get off your ass! I aim for 10,000 steps a day. That's just steps, not my workout.
I feel like this will be one of the last times I write about my weight loss...well at least until I hit the 100 pounds lost club!
