Mine is to lose 20 pounds over the next 4 months. Seems reasonable, yes? But I have no plan! I posted on another thread about starting a daily yoga prctice but that's more to increase my balance, strength, flexibility and feel good overall. What can I do that I can stick to to drop 5 pounds every month? I've cut gluten out of my diet almost completely since I found I am sensitive to it. I rarely eat things with sugar in them, opting for fruit instead. I try to limit the amount of food I eat but I seem to just not gain.  I want to lose! So, what would be the best approach - cut my calories or do something more intense than yoga? Anyone else have a weight loss resolution built on clean foods and an exercise program that isn't too strenuous or time-consuming? 


Thanks! :love

I would add a little cardio into your routine and make sure your getting enough healthy fats and protein. My fitness goal is to add more veggies into my diet. I feel like I get enough fruit but the veggies have tended to be nightshade, mostly tomatoes, lately.

Visit the Holiday Helper thread and join in on the giving and fun! Loving and working with the plants. I have a store! or two!
