My Top Weight Loss/Fat Loss Lessons

8 years ago, I started my weight loss journey and in 2 years lost 9 stone. Since I started I learned quite a bit about what it takes to lose weight and keep it off. Some lessons I recognised quickly while others took me a little bit longer to see. And, even though, I have a lot of knowledge in my weight loss arsenal I am positive there is still much more I can learn.

So far, these are my top weight loss lessons.

  • Tracking food. This has been the cornerstone to my weight loss. I use My Fitness Pal to keep track of my daily calories, nutrition, exercise, and weight loss goals.
  • Meal Planning. Taking the time to meal plan provides me with the road map and structure I need to stay on track with my food. However, meal planning is not always easy. So, instead of struggling sometimes i use ready meals, like Kirsty’s or M&S meals to streamline the process. Now meal planning is not an issue. The lesson learned here is don’t try to do things alone all the time. 
  • Make ahead meals. Preparing my foods ahead of time makes it easier to eat healthy during the week. Simple yet powerful concept. I am more likely to eat the foods I plan when I take the time to food prep.
  • Clean eating/volume eating. Eating clean foods makes me feel good, especially green smoothies. Volume food make you feel fuller for not much food. My body feels nourished and I feel focused.
  • Strength training makes all the difference. A flat tummy and defined arms are not going to be the result of running 3-4 miles a day. However, I love to walk it keeps me focused and sane so I keep it a part of my exercise routine.
  • Keeping an exercise schedule that works. Exercising in the morning is the way to go for me. If I don’t exercise in the morning it won’t happen.

Each strategy plays a huge role in my weight loss journey. There are many more but there is one thing that trumps them all. 


Consistency. Yep, I need to stay consistent. Consistency is the #1 thing you ABSOLUTELY MUST do to lose weight and keep it off.
