Get Skinny!

Updated on August 28, 2014

Everybody's Skinny

When I went into high school I think I weighed close to 150 lbs. I went up to 200lbs and then reduced drastically due to ephedra, eating disorders and typical teenage mania to the size of 150lb again. Then, you guessed it, I ballooned up and down and up and down again.

Right now I'm at a down and I'm only at around 150 lbs but that is great for me. I'm 28 years old I've maintained this weight for about a year now with no diet except eating raw foods, very little processed, and staying away from drugs, alcohol, anything in pill form or powder that isn't protein. Plus I work out regularly and I PRAY AND MEDITATE.

I don't know what the answer is for you, but I have added some astonishing free information in this hub that has saved moments onto my life by getting back in shape, increase my ability to play with my child on the playground and in the house and my sex life is awesome.

We each have our own skinny. The number may be different but we all know our restrictions. I can't eat sugar or drink alcohol. If I do, my attitude sucks and my body looks gross. But if I take care of my body and stick to these simple decisions (which are only simple with prayer and meditation) then I love my mind, body, myself and you!

Getting Skinny

So 150 isn't skinny to you? That's fine because your skinny may not be mine. We all are genetically induced with a natural layout. We can beat it with nutrition and exercise but it takes time. It will probably take another three months, during the holiday season, to cast off the last 20 lbs. and if and when I do I am going to get custom made clothing that states "Skinny Girl" because I worked my tail off and passed up tons of grease laden foods and chocolate smorgashborge for my body. It isn't so much the number and the feeling when you know you are doing the right thing. A girlfriend of mine who is now a professional fitness model, check out CiCi Maxine on Facebook, weighed 150 when she used to drink and not care. Now at a firm and gorgeous 120 she is at her most defined best.

For me, my mom and most of my maternal aunts are bigger. 150 is healthy for them. However my one paternal aunt is also a fitness guru, check out Terri Alzman from Long Island! She runs marathons, doesn't smoke and probably weighs 130. We are tall, medium/large women. Again, it can be slimmed with eating less and exercising more.

Find Your Skinny

How to get skinny=

Did you know it takes like 5 grams of protein to lose 1 gram of fat? So scientifically, you need to reduce your intake of fat to burn up what is already stored AND take in more protein to burn, burn, burn....

What to Put In

Protein Drinks are a Must

I usually get the cheapo beapo protein from Walmart but anything will do. Just check the calories and number of carbs and protein. You want low carbs and low calories ( under 120 per serving) with the most protein! Also eat nuts, tuna, avacado and other protein ladden foods!

What To Put Out

Yoga is great. Running. We want between 20 minutes- 2 hours of cardio each day. 20 minutes if youre doing high intensity intervals or cross fit (change between max out jump rope/running/biking/burpees) and longer time if youre taking your time....

There is a free app for smart phones called Workout Trainer, some of my exercises are even on there! These are great for finding a work out that is chiseled to your time limit and workout desired area.

Remember, there is no point in exercising if you're going to go eat all your calories burned. Sometimes it's best to just do nothing and eat less if you're having an emo. day.
