10 pounds to go?

Love this advice from Denise Austin. Actually, after my recent gain, I have 20lbs. :-P

Ask Denise!
10 Pounds to Go!

Q: I've lost close to 50 pounds, and now that I'm finally down to the last 10 pounds, I'm finding it hard to stay determined. How can I keep up my motivation?

A: Congratulations — you've done a great job so far! The last 10 pounds are usually the hardest to lose, but don't give up! The best way to rev up your metabolism is to add another five minutes to your routine. Try light walking around the block, toning exercises, even light isometrics (resistance exercises during which you hold a position for a set period of time). These will all help speed up that metabolism and burn those extra pounds. Also, make sure you drink plenty of water and curb snacking in the evening. This will help you get over your last hurdle. Good luck — you're almost there!

So maybe you can add 10 minutes? :) I'm playing bouncy-bouncy with almost two pounds, so this advice comes in handy. Thanks!

Nice work, keep it up
I'm Trying to keep myself motivated too for my plan to burn the flab abs in 2 months. I'm trying to lose 3 pounds in 10 days (not a lot I know, but I think it's better to lose weight naturally). Trying to loss weight for women after pregnancy like me is kinda tough but I think it's not impossible.

Nice blog. Keep it posted.

I'm there right now, too. Main problem is I slipped and fell hard on my back a week ago and am having a really hard time even exercising right now! Keep pushing the walking but nothing like what I was doing...just really need to get motivated to get these last pounds off! I am so not motivated right now....
Still here praying!
Psalm 34:17-20 The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all. He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.
