Thoughts on Thin


I've been very blessed to have good genes.  For most of my life, I have not struggled with weight issues.  I have NOT always been thin, there have been a few ups and downs, but for the most part I've been on the thin side.  As I've gotten older (and I shall not reveal my age), and after having the twins maintaining my "thinness" has become harder, though not impossible.

Here are some of my "Lulu" Thoughts on Thin...

1.  Eat your complex carbs before 3 pm!

2.  Eat a good breakfast high in protein.  I never used to be a breakfast person.  However, since my metabolism has changed, I have to look at my food and diet differently. To keep my energy up, I have a high protein breakfast.  Oatbran mixed with oatmeal (just 2 Tbs. of each), mixed with 1/2 cup of water & nuked 2 minutes.  I mix in cinnamon (spices are great for creating flavor without calories) & Truvia.  Truvia is my new love!  No calories and it's the most like sugar in taste and texture.

3.  Eat your veggies!  If I have veggies with my lunch or dinner, I eat them first and fill up my stomach on the good low calorie, high vitamin food.

4.  Eating out?  Always tricky...  I love food, I admit it.  When I go to a restaurant everything looks good and I want it all!  Here'a my thoughts... Once you get your food delivered, also ask for a to-go container.  Put half your meal in the to-go and ENJOY eating the other half.

5.  Walk!  Walk everywhere and walk fast!  It seems like I'm always in a hurry.  I kind of am, but it's also a think thin trick.  Walking in the mall?  Walk fast.  Walking from your car to the office building?  Walk fast. Doing your grocery shopping?  Walk & shop fast! (just don't run into anyone)... You get my drift.

6.  Eat the right snacks, again, high in protein.  Some of my favs: cheedar cheese & grapes sticks, greek yogurt, hummus and cucumber, and almonds for a bit of crunch.  See this website, here, for more great high protein snack ideas!

7.  Get yourself healthy inside!  Invest in doing a vitamin study.  This needs to be done by your doctor and is specific to YOUR BODY and what vitamins your body is missing and/or needs.  When I had this done, I was tremendously low in my B vitamins.  So much so, that my doctor gave me a B vitamin shot before leaving her office!  Now that I'm taking supplemental B12 and a Bcomplex I have SO much more energy and am feeling good.  Feeling good inside will help you feel better outside!

Finally, let me say that developing a healthy an approach to food is so important.  Get to know your strengths and weakness, when it comes to food, to create your own "thoughts on thin"!

  8. Great post Lulu! I love the ideas about walking everywhere and eating healthy snacks. I think people often overlook healthy snacking and only pay attention to eating healthy meals.

    Keep up the good work!
