So it Begins (Again...)
I am trying to do this in a completely different way than any other past attempts. Don't get me wrong, I have dieted in the past and have had great success, but the journey usually ends with injury, depression, and an ending weight higher than before the diet started. I am approaching this diet as a lifestyle change this time. Not only am I making this a lifestyle change, but I am also making this my lifestyle... I am immersing myself in this diet because I have seen what happens to people that are overweight and I do not want to be that person anymore. I have been out of the Marines Corps for 8 months now and besides a solid start of weight loss spurned by exercise (finished by injury), I have done little to better myself since I have gotten out. I'm taking it slow this time and concentrating on doing it right. The base of my diet is South Beach, but in reality, I am primarily going to follow a strict Phase 1 of the diet, while starting Plexus Slim for energy, and putting together a solid work out program that I can accomplish alone. I have been looking for a good workout partner since I have been home, but have not been able to find one. So this time, it's on me. No excuses and no quitting. The rest of my life depends on it. I do not expect any results from Plexus Slim, but have seen promising results from some of my friends that are taking it. As far as exercise goes, I plan on working twice a day 4-5 days a week starting out. My exercise starting out will consist of 45 minutes of low impact cardio and resistance training with weights (primarily cable exercises). I am not happy with what I have become and absolutely must make a change. Don't know what to expect from this site, but I am hopeful.
