Start Weight:(05 Jan 12) 250.4 lb
Current Weight:(28 Jul 14) 171.7 lb
Goal Weight:135.0 lb
following: 2ManyCurves's own diet
performance: losing 2.3 lb a week

I'm 40, single and pregnant. :) I am also raising my step-daughter from my most recent marriage (she's 16) and I have an 18 yr old son who is headed for college this fall.

I'm trying to stay healthy, but I often screw up food choices. Exercise is my saving grace though. It is Prozac with only positive side effects.

I haven't weighed in for some time now because the scale is only going to reflect that my uterus is now the size of a soccer ball. I do plan on weighing in after I have the baby though as that is when I will focus more on weight loss.

I'm also going to be good to myself from here on out. Really, really good to myself. I've been married twice (and soon, divorced twice) and the only thing I've learned from the experience is that I cannot depend on others to treat me well in this short life. The numbers on the scale may fluctuate daily. But, I owe it to myself to live the fullest life I can.

How does this diet look?
Ahh...wait...1200 is maintenance? I guess you could substitute oatmeal with chia seeds for one meal if you pick a 6" rather than the foot long. (Oatmeal is cheap. Runs me about $3 a month.)

How does this diet look?
It sounds like a good plan to me. You might want to try to add a cup of cooked oatmeal with chia seeds if you want the extra protein. Plus it should keep you right around that 1200 calorie per day goal.

Am I eating too little calories?
World Health Organization's recommended daily allowance of Sugar=Carbs=Starch for Men is 38gms per day...for Women it's 25gm


I don't want to contradict you, but I'm a little worried that someone might read this and think that they should limit total carb intake to 38g or 25g per day. I believe WHO recommends these limits for sugar intake. Sugar is a carb. But, carbs are also comprised of fiber. It is recommended as a woman that you consume 25 grams of fiber per day. I get that not everyone is on the same diet plan. For instance, Atkins recommends lower carb intake. Yet vegans/vegetarians take in a much higher amount of carbs. I just wanted to clarify that all carbs are not the enemy.

Road race
Ah yeah...and this is how the addiction begins....

Next thing you know, it will be a half-marathon, full marathon and a triathlon.... Hello Race Entry Fees, Goodbye Money. Smile

***Just a note: weight will come off as long as you keep the diet in check. You can't outrun a bad diet. I'm struggling with that part currently.

Good luck on your next race!
