I have the secret to weight loss

Well, it’s not really a secret. In fact, it’s so darn obvious that it seems to be overlooked often. Heck, I lost 128lbs that way and yet somehow managed to forget the secret and gain a chunk of it back last year.

Since the beginning of the year I have been focusing on two simple things, two things which have made the number on the scale start to drop.

1. Eating less

2. Moving more

Yep, I’m back on the eating less and moving more band wagon and gosh darn wouldn’t you know I’m losing weight. Amazing.



  1. It’s almost too impossible to believe!

  2. That’s one band wagon I can always count on!

  3. That is one bandwagon I wish everyone would get on! As simple as it is, there are lots of people who just don’t understand it. Heck, I understand it but still there are a lot of times when I completely forget it and get mad when I gain weight.

  4. You, my dear are genius!

  5. Who would’ve known. 🙂

  6. A lovely reminder! Thanks Tricia! You’re the best! 🙂

  7. Haha… you had me sucked in at SECRET! 🙂
    It’s #1 that I have a problem with…

  8. Funny how that works. You should share this secret so others might benefit! Oh, that’s what this is about. Got it.

  9. Me too. Except this week, I ate less and moved more and gained. Hate this weight loss game!

  10. Incredible! Revealing! I have also finally started moving again, and it feels great. It helped to clean up the eating a week or so earlier. Good job!

  11. So simple but sometimes so easy to forget! You have to tell me about your ravishing purple shoes!

  12. I tell people I’ve lost 60lbs and they ask me for my “secret” I always tell them they don’t really want to know and they insist that they do thinking I’m going to give them a super secret cure that will allow them to eat cupcakes all day long and lose all their weight in mere days. They are always disappointed when I tell them I started exercising and watching what I eat. And then I remind them that I told them they didn’t really want to know.

  13. Nicely going! I wish it was that easy for me. No results yet, but my body tends to be stubborn, so I’m going to keep at it!

  14. Sometimes the simple things work the best. It would be great if others discovered this “secret” instead of pouring all that money into some of those crazy diet products I see on store shelves!

    Ha! There’s a lot of truth in that – aside from emotions, that is.

    I get the feeling that a lot of us who struggle with our weight are eating too much (even binging) for emotional/coping reasons. I know that’s my main issue by far.

    One true self-acceptance begins to occur, and we reduce or take away the emotional component of it: then yes, eating a bit less and moving a bit more tends to do wonders! (-: It’s a fantastic feeling, learning to trust my body to know its own needs, hunger and fullness, etc. I don’t think I’d have been ready for such trust before now. One benefit of getting a little older, I guess!

  16. And this is why we love you, Tricia! You’re real and you know the real way things work. 🙂

  17. That’s a really cute post 🙂

  18. As always – simple things are the best. Just we forget them sometimes.

  19. I had no idea you’d lost so much! Congratulations! I know you can get back on track and get the last bit off. 🙂

  20. Simple but hard to do.
    A habit that must be ingrained as part of your daily fabric.
    Keep after it! Each day is another victory.

  21. Wow, what an inspiration you are!! So glad we could meet and chat (briefly) today. Hope our paths cross again!

  22. Hey Tricia-

    I love seeing that you are as strong as I always believed you were. In fact, you have proven it more during this season of your journey than during any other.

    You are doing great.
