I am not a medical doctor and this is just what is helping me keep the fats off.

Most of you have probably heard these tips before, but incase you havent....
Ok Im 5'5" and I went from 137lbs to 127lbs doing this.


1. Drank a lot more water.
I used to drink 1 water bottle a day and I kicked it up to 4. Now I feel a lot more energetic and it keeps my intestines clean lol.

2. Gave up Soda, Arizona Tea, Kool aid, and Energy Drinks.
All of these drinks have a large amount of High Fructose Corn Syrup and caused belly fat for me...Even though Arizona has tea in it, I feel like the health benefits of the tea are canceled out by all the sugar....

3. Started doing a little bit of Yoga and Pilates.
Everyday I try to do a little bit of Yoga or Pilates to prevent the uneeded fat and stay toned

4. I take the stairs whenever possible.
Also because my fear of getting stuck in an elevator...

5. Gave up candy.....
cry I'm guilty of the late night snacking, instead I snack on broccoli or carrots, which I love biggrin basically anything healthy

Oh I have a HUUUGGE sweet tooth too. And yes I strictly gave up candy for a month with my belly fat as my motivation. Now I eat nutritional bars, smoothies, and 100 calorie snacks, but every once and a while I splurge on some Hot Cheetoes or pastries cat_emo basically cutting down my intake of sweets got rid of my belly...
Congrats on the 10lbs!

The second one is easy for me, because I hate soda xd and all I ever drink is water and real juice.

Last semester at school I tried taking the stairs more and avoided the elevator (also carrying heavy bags around lol) and it's worked out pretty well for me.

I'm still hovering up and down the 160s now because of all the summer BBQs, but last month was the first time in forever I weighed UNDER 160! So I must be doing something right.

And Congrats! :3
Thank you for your advices! *gulps water* XD
that's a good idea. especially that last one. i have a friend who dropped 20lbs just by picking up healthy things to eat like apples or carrots to snack on instead of junk food
