  2. Congratulations, I warn you though, losing weight is not the hardest part. If someone is overweight for a long time, their body will become accustomed to it. When the body loses a substantial amount of weight, their body will take steps to conserve the mass that is left and try and put back what was losses. Muscles use approximately 500 calories less per day after substantial weight loss. This is why people who go on diets will usually end up weighing more in the long run. BUT that doesn't mean the body isn't healthier. The fat burnt is bad fat, and as long as they do not start eating complete crap after the diet, the body is still healthier. Basically though, a healthy body requires a lifetime dedication. Again, congratulation on losing 15 lbs, but there is no rush. Worry less about the number, and more about how your body feels. Try and look at food as fuel, and remind yourself that your body only deserves the premium fuel.

Its been over the course of like 9 weeks or so, since I wanted to start my resolution early. Its not a diet I'm on because in my opinion diets fail. Its more of a lifestyle change than anything. I was homeless living in my car and packing on weight due to only being able to afford $1 menu meals. Since I've gotten back on my feet its been soooo much better. I can buy my own food without having to store it in a cooler. :) I <3 hobbit weed

    try a farmer's market or a butcher shop if you have those
     
    it's easy to eat healthy if you know what to look for and have good thrift skills
