I know that 15 pounds may or may not sound like a lot to you but for me, it has changed how I feel, how I look and my confidence.
My overall goal is to weigh 150 pounds and with only 6 more pounds to go, I wanted to give a couple of tips as to how I’m going to reach that goal and how I’ve already lost/shredded 15 pounds.
1. Find a workout partner and hit the gym.
Yes, you can lose weight from just eating right but to watch the weight fall right off you will want to add a good workout into your daily/weekly activities. Finding a workout partner was one of the best decisions I could have made.
My workout partner not only motivates me but she holds me accountable when it comes to getting to the gym and staying on track with what I’m eating.
2. Meal prep.
This was another significant change for me. As I’ve written before, my workout partner (Rae-Lyn) and I get together and prep our meals for the week. Meal prepping has helped me stick to eating right and truly saved me tons of money from not eating out. Another plus is my family is now eating right with me.
Ladies and gentlemen, I cannot stress enough how astonishing this product is. Snacking can be your worst enemy when trying to lose weight and get fit. That one bag of potato chips can throw you off for the rest of the day and set you back.
Since using Meta Appetite Control I’m now feeling less hungry and make it through my day with less and less cravings. Perfect for everyone.
With Meta Appetite Control, I not only stick to my healthy eating but, in addition to, Meta also helps me with my mid-day cravings. After all, it is proven to help you feel less hungry between meals.
With Meta Appetite Control being the #1 doctor recommended fiber brand I know that I’m getting the right natural psyllium fiber I need. So head over to Walgreen’s and pick up yours today. I promise you will not regret it.
Also don’t forget that I-C is hosting a coupon opportunity for Meta Appetite Control where you can receive a $5 digital coupon but it’s first come, first serve so get it while you can 🙂

4. Protein, protein, protein!
A lot of people tend to forget about protein. When being active about 40% of your daily calorie intake should be protein. This can be difficult (trust me I know).
The first step to achieving this goal is to get yourself some protein that you think you might enjoy. My friend has recently found her protein fix through some honey that she found at a place called Gold Bee Nutrition, and she said she has never felt better. Because it is filled with protein, it is providing her with all the nutrients she needs to remain fit and healthy. Great, right? I, on the other hand, have decided to find some protein to make myself an awesome protein shake with. Did you know that drinking/eating more protein when being active not only helps with managing your weight but also helps your muscle recovery and helps those muscles get toned up.
5. Don’t be lazy.
It’s extremely easy to sit on the couch and say “I’ll do it tomorrow”. But that’s when you will start to fail and not meet your goals. Get off the couch, go for a walk, get to the gym or go outside and play with your kids. I know that sometimes this can be hard but if you start little by little it will get easier and you will start to have more energy.
With these five steps I have overcome hunger and lost 15 lbs. this is all something that you too can accomplish!

Excellent article Erica. Saw you in the Houston Bloggers Group. I think number 1 and 2 are probably the most important. I always try harder and I’m more consistent when I have a partner, or in the case of Crossfit class…partner(s).
Also, I don’t do meal prep in the traditional sense, I just cook a ton of food on Monday and eat leftovers all week. That keeps me from eating fast food, which helps me stay legit.
I’m sharing this on my FB Feed and in my Daily fitness Interviews Facebook Page. Hope you Don’t Mind
Thank you for sharing and yes finding a partner in crime was my biggest and most important change that I made. Thankyou again 🙂
