Losing weight is not easy. In fact, it can be downright hard work! But when you see the results – like Amy Goins did when she lost 85 pounds – it makes all the effort worth it. Here, Amy shares her top tips for losing weight and keeping it off for good. Follow her advice, and you too can see amazing results for both your mind and body!
Kim’s BFF and member of her “Sexy Six,” Amy Goins can’t remember a time she wasn’t conscious about her weight. She tried all the dieting fads from SlimFast to Weight Watchers to fasting, but nothing would stick.
Weight loss is a roller coaster journey and comes with a lot of trial and error, but as Amy says, “If you put in the work, the results will come.” At 85 pounds lighter and mentally stronger than ever, Amy is living proof of this mantra.
Amy shares 4 healthy lifestyle habits that has transformed her body and mind.
Walk Every Day
This may seem like a no-brainer, but walking every day is one of the healthiest things you can do for your body and mind. Not only does it help with weight loss, but it also clears your head and helps to de-stress you.
Create a Daily Weight Loss Meal Plan
Planning your healthy and nutritious meals ahead of time will help you stay on track on your weight loss journey. You won't grab the first thing you see in the fridge or eat something unhealthy in a rush.
Working with a trainer has drastically helped with weight loss. Not only do they help to create an individualized plan for you but are there every step of the way to motivate you.
Lifting weights helps you build muscle and strengthens your body. When you have more muscle, your body burns more calories – even when you’re at rest!
Enjoy Your Life
Remember that life is supposed to be enjoyed and fun. Enjoy yourself at celebrations and holidays. Don't put too many dietary restrictions on yourself in those joyful moments.
These are just a few of the healthy habits that Amy talked to Kim about on LOL with Kim Gravel so she could reach her weight loss goals, but they can work for anyone looking to make a change in their life. Remember that small changes lead to big changes and try not to put too much pressure on yourself. Celebrate your accomplishments along the way and always remember that you are worth it!
