I finally have found the eating and exercise lifestyle that has been working. Already the scale has said I dropped 5 lbs. I am now 195 lbs! Yay! All it took was a little tinkering and thinking about my natural eating patterns:
- 3 meals: between 300-500 calories
- 3-5 snacks: between 100-200 calories
- Exercise: 1-1.5 hours 6X a week
- Drink 4 cups of black/green tea a day (unsweet, but sometimes I like a little sweet)
- Drink Grapefruit juice mixed with 2 TB apple cider vinegar+1 TB Honey
Hopefully this will be a permanent solution and I don’t have to alter it too much. I actually got the tea and grapefruit juice and tea idea from Dr. Oz. Check it out here!
I’m so glad God has helped me find what works. And that He has put you all here with your love and encouragement. You guys are the best friends I got online. ^_^
I’ll post more results on Monday. I’m off to workout!
I hung out with friends I haven’t seen in almost a year. They noticed my weight loss and muscle gain. They could actually see my developing muscles! I am so proud of myself!
Can’t wait to workout tomorrow again. :)
I went shopping on Saturday, hoping to find a new pair of “skinny” jeans. Old Navy had my size and they fit, but they were too low cut. But, I found a lovely summer shirt and the size was large. I was very happy! I used to be XL in that store for tops, but I manage to finally fit comfortably in a large. Yay!
I still was looking for some jeans at Rainbow, but their size 14 jeans didn’t fit (the back side was too narrow and not made to fit curves). I usually shop the plus size section there, but I saw a nice summer dress. I used to be a 1X in those, but I went and tried the regular XL. It fit perfectly! I’m 99% out of the plus sized section there! I couldn’t believe how awesome that dress fit! I look so much slimmer now than even last month. I can wear tank tops without worrying about fat jiggling under my armpits.
Got to keep working on it! Photos coming soon, too!
Now I’m off to lie down and get this headache under control. I drank something I didn’t know had splenda- ugh! That stuff hurts my head in any amount….
