Have you been a bit complacent over these last months and stopped keeping an eye on your portions? All those extra calories soon add up to those extra pounds. Lots of members have been telling me that’s what’s happened to them – how about you? The answer… check your portion sizes and don’t let that stop you losing weight. If your weight loss has hit a standstill, then guesstimating may be one of the main problems!
The total above is 2071 calories – maybe this is the reason your weight is staying the same!!!
You could burn off those extra calories – SIMPLY skip or walk briskly for approximately 3 hours.
