Trish Transforms is my project for 2015. I want to get fitter, I want to get leaner and I want to enjoy the journey. Dieting doesn’t have to be hell and this isn’t a diet anyway, I want to make changes for good. So I’m going to document my random thoughts along the way in an effort to inspire and motivate myself.
I’m not the most regular in posting these updates but that doesn’t mean that I’ve fallen off the wagon. It’s the opposite really, the process for Transforming Trish is going great! So far I’ve lost 45 pounds and I feel like a new person. I still have more to lose but my energy levels are through the roof and I’m loving how I’m back in lots of my old clothes.
As the year has gone out, I’ve just gotten more and more in to clean eating and trying to make the best nutritional choices that I can. Instagram has been a huge part of that as I wrote about previously and it continues to inform, educate and motivate me. And lately I’ve found my focus has moved away from weight watchers and counting points and just more about eating healthy.
I’ve no issues with weight watchers but I just find it’s not what I need for this part of my journey. Instead I’ve been using the My Fitness Pal app to track all my food and exercise and I’m in love with it. It seems so much easier to just count calories instead of working out points and I’m all for anything that simplifies my life. Other advantages are a huge database, you can scan barcodes on foods and it’s FREE!
It also shows you the nutritional content of what you are eating on a weekly and daily basis. As both my parents are diabetic, I’m always trying to be aware of what my sugar content is and MyFitnessPal makes this very easy.
I think when it comes to losing weight, there is no wrong way to do it (assuming you are making healthy choices of course), you just have to find what works for you. I’m someone who likes visual feedback and I’m a lister so tracking via an app is perfect for me. It’s a huge part of why weight watchers did work for me and now I feel My Fitness Pal is making everything even easier. So watch out remaining flab, your days are numbered!
