I’ve been struggling with weight for years, and it’s slowly coming off thanks to walking two miles a day and working on my garden. Changing small things every day helps me get the inches off my waist and feel better for myself. IYAMHEALTHY

I have eliminated all soda, any rBST milk, and most juice from my diet. I drink water that is room temp because it is easier for your body to handle, especially while working out. I am a vegetarian for health reasons. Once I move (which will be soon), I will be living almost car-free and biking everywhere I need to go. Right now, horseback riding keeps me in shape. I have cut out most GM and processed foods, and I use only herbal medicine. IYAMHEALTHY

Muscles talk. If they start to feel heavy and pressured, they’re not getting oxygen fast enough. This can be good or bad. If you’re working out and suddenly can’t lift the weight you’re doing despite your muscles not feeling heavy, you’ve hit your max and should let your muscles rest before continuing. If they start to become sore, again, you’re overdoing it and should stop before you do any damage. Following these tips allows me to work my hardest in the weight room without injury. IYAMHEALTHY

I am counting calories and make sure I get enough of the right vitamins and minerals each day. I also drink at least 2 liters of water every day. I do squash/indoor soccer 2 to 3 times a week and go for a walk/jog 3 times a week. I’ve been doing so for two months now and I can see my skin clearing up (I used to have bad acne, now there’s almost nothing left) and I feel much more energetic than before. I’m also losing some weight along with it, but most importantly IYAMHEALTHY

I am limiting myself to 5 small meals a day, drinking 3-4 liters of water a day and exercising at 3 days a week. I’ve stopped drinking fruit juice, all sodas and only eat junk food once a week. I’ve added more vegetables and fresh fruit to my meals. My goal is to lose 20lbs by the start of the summer because I want to fit into my favorite sundress again, to look and feel like IYAMHEALTHY.
