I cut out all carbs and sugar (excluding those occurring naturally in fruits and vegetables) and am eating tons of veggies, with some protein and dairy. Yesterday was the only really hard day so far, and I muscled through it.
Next week I start exercising again, and I am pumped! :)
I took a short hiatus to have a baby. Now baby is almost 3 months old and I can no longer use him as an excuse.
My goal is to lose 40 lbs by Christmas, or break the 200 mark. I haven't been under 200 since before my first baby! I really want to do it. I think I can.
Jeff and I worked out my plan. Pretty simple, but I should see a lot of changes to my body if I keep up with it. Here it is:
NO sweet carbs (desserts are a killer for me!)
LIMITED regular carbs
LOTS of veggies
And enough meat to keep me from being hungry
And a prenatal vitamin. :)
That along with exercise should make a big difference for me. I'm not sure about the exercise plan yet. It's probably going to depend on the schedule of my son's preschool. I may only go to the gym on days he is at school; I don't know yet.
But there are no more babies planned in the immediate future, so I am ready to get as close to my old body as possible! This is finally the time and I CAN DO IT!
Hi! I'm Bethany. I'm just starting on my weight-loss journey.
Here's my brief weight synopsis. At my best I was 145 in high school. I'm 5'7", so that was pretty good. I have fat legs, and always will, so I thought I was overweight then. Silly me! I wore a size small top and a 8/10 pants. My heaviest was 260 at the end of a pregnancy. Whew! That's a big difference. If you're curious, you can read how I got fat at this post. Right now I'm at 240 and so excited to lose this darn weight!
