As you get older and inch up in numbers, you also see a decrease in your metabolism. This is not helpful, especially when you are trying to lose weight or simply keep weight off. Throughout my teens and twenties I never once worried about losing weight or having to diet. I was always stick thin. But, then after having my girls in my early 30's, I found losing the baby weight to be a battle. And, it didn't help that I had the girls back to back as it seemed like I just added weight to my already growing waistline. When it came time to lose all the weight I put on for both girls, which was over 60 pounds, boy was it a struggle to lose.
Having two little ones in the house to care for, I wasn't able to go to the gym and work. My workouts came throughout the day lifting and carrying the girls and cleaning the house. And, if I found myself with some energy after everyone was asleep I would do some light cardio or yoga to relax and unwind. You would think with two little ones having to chase after I would not have to worry about exercising or have issues with losing weight. My step counter is off the charts each day, but the scale tells me a different story -- one that doesn't seem to want to budge.
I don't know about you, but when you don't see the weight coming off, even though you feel you are putting in the effort, it is hard to want to stick to a diet or exercise regime. For the past few years my new years resolution would include losing the last of the baby weight. I would find myself getting so close, but then summer, the holidays or stress put the pounds back on. I have stuck with my resolutions, but when December 31st rolls around, I find myself making the same resolution, as the weight is still there.
This year I was hoping to be the year that the weight would finally come off and I wouldn't have to worry about dieting anymore. But, when bathing suit season rolled around, I was wishing for fall. Then, I was contacted by the folks at Atkins to see if I wanted to try out their new line of easy step-by-step meal kits, made especially for busy lifestyles like mine. Having tried other weight loss meal kits in the past and not being a fan of the taste or options, I was hesitant to try these kits out. I decided to give these new meal kits a try because I have been a fan of Atkins shakes and snack bars, so I thought if these taste good, then the food would too.
I was so happy that I did give these meal kits a try. Not only were they easy to prepare from frozen, but they tasted great. You would never know you were eating a weight loss meal as the portion size was just right, the quality was amazing, and each and every time I sat down for a meal or snack, I left the table full and satisfied and not to the point that I was disappointed with myself for eating too much.
I could go on and on about how great the new line of meal kits, which are delivered right to your down from Atkins, but I will save that for another post later next week. :-) Today, I wanted to share more about the three new meal kit options available from Atkins, and share a special promotion where you can save 5% on your first order. Read on to learn more about this discount, which expires on September 30th.
