Before there was Waist, Hips, & Thighs my wife and I were just two happy people living the college life and enjoying ourselves. We both were active as being on campus called for a lot of walking, partying and just simply being out and about just doing things. We never could seem to sit down.
That college would also be the first part of my wife’s story on the up and down of weight gain. You see when people talk about the freshmen 15-20 (gaining pounds freshmen) a lot seem to think or take it as a joke. All I have to say is go ask my wife about it and see if she thinks it’s a myth.
Being Active is Only Half the Battle
You know how people will tell you that you just need to be active, do more exercise, going to the gym and stuff like that? Well to be honest that ISH isn’t going to work miracles by itself! My wife was as active as a person could be. Walking to class, going to the gym, being a part of her sorority, and going to parties every weekend, she was very active.
She was so active that she never really paid attention to the garbage she was eating and how unhealthy her eating habits were. Of course being active help but it couldn’t stop her from gaining the pounds freshmen year of college.
You Can’t Out Exercise a Bad Diet
If you are new to my site then you probably have never read the statement above but it holds to be so very true. My wife didn’t sit on her ass on all the time like most but what she was eating was killing her and her self esteem.
From the $.50 hot wings and pizza slices from Five Star pizza to the late night drinking at parties and the fast food restaurants on the late nights coming from the clubs. The calories were just too much for her body to burn. Sure she was active but there isn’t enough dancing in the world that’s going to cover with a high calorie diet.
It’s Not About How Much Eat
Too many women are under the assumption that since they only ate a little bit (as my wife would say) that they shouldn’t be consuming a lot of calories. Well take a look at the calories in a meal from your favorite fast food place and then tell me if that is true. Those meals won’t usually fill you up but they sure do pack on the calories.
Before there was intermittent fasting and high intensity interval training for my wife there was a clear understanding that to lose weight she needed both exercise and a great diet. She finally figured this out her sophomore year in college and the fat started to slowly disappear. She was starting to get her life back and was happy again.
But then something happened that caused things to change……………that’s a whole other story.
NOTE: Let me know how you feel….Have you tried losing weight but just can’t seem to get it right? What are you doing wrong? What do you need help with? Leave a comment or question that’s what I am here for.
