I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not the most confident person in front of a camera. As a fashion blogger, confidence in front of the camera is a major key. One of my biggest confidence killers is my weight. It’s been a part of myself that I’ve struggled with the past couple of years and it’s what initially forced me to put my dreams of fashion blogging on hold. Luckily, I got over that hurdle, but part of me is still hesitant to try new trends and fully dive into fashion blogging based on my weight. Back to school season is right around the corner and even though I’m not going to school, this time of year is all about starting fresh and setting new goals. I plan on smashing my weight loss goals by eating right, exercising, and a little help from alli® weight loss aid. Now that summer BBQs and vacations are over it’s time to get serious about my weight loss. I’ve already made steps to accomplishing my goals by drinking more water and using the reminders to move on my FitBit. Keep reading to see how you can implement these easy steps into your busy lifestyle without spending a dime!
One of my favorite ways to stay active is by using my Fitbit Alta. It’s my second Fitbit (I previously had the FitBit Charge) and it has definitely changed the way I go about my day. If you want to be FitBit friends leave your email address in the comments below! My Fitbit tracks all of my steps, calories burned, and even reminds me to move at least 250 steps every hour (if you have an Apple or S Gear Watch you have these features as well). If you’re looking for an alternative to buying an expensive watch use your phone! There are tons of apps that track exercise, calories burned, and keep you on track to your weight loss goals. Take a look in the App Store on your phone for an app that works for you and your lifestyle. Don’t want to download an app on your phone? Use the alarm feature on your phone to set reminders to move every hour. I hope you’ll join me in meeting the American Heart Association’s suggested goal of 10,000 steps every day. I know we can do it!
Staying hydrated is super important when it comes to weight loss. Water intake has been a personal goal for a while now and some days I do a better job than others at keeping track of how much water I ingest. The amount of water you should drink in a day depends on your body chemistry, but if you’re trying to start drinking more water on a daily basis there are water bottles that track your water intake for you like this one here. Here’s a hack for making your own water intake bottle for almost free! Take a cheap water bottle that you don’t care about losing or scratching up (trust me, I’ve lost and damaged my share of water bottles and some of them were not cheap to replace), measuring cup, and a black permanent marker. Mark a clear water bottle with a line at every glass full (250ml) of water you can pour in. Mark these lines with the time you'd like to finish your glass by for a visual reminder. Keep your bottle with you and see if you can stay on track with your hydration goals. Bonus tip: not a fan of plain water? Add your favorite fruits to your bottle and chug away!
These tips are perfect for maintaining a healthy lifestyle for the rest of your life, not just for weight loss. Along with following the tips above I’ll be supplementing my weight loss goals with alli® weight loss aid.

I purchased my alli® weight loss aid kit from my local Target in the health section. It works by blocking 25% of the fat you eat from being absorbed by your body.
