following: The Burn More Calories Than You Eat Diet
performance: losing 1.8 lb a week
From Tennessee and have lived in Washington, DC; near Oklahoma City, OK and Denver, CO.
Joined here several years ago, but really didn't take diet and exercise seriously. I had started walking again in the Spring of 2014, and when I went to my Doctor for my regular check-up on July 16th, 2014, I noticed I'd lost a few pounds without really trying. Still, I weighed 249 lbs, which I thought was absurd for someone who'd always been athletic. So, on that date, I started my own diet and exercise routine. I've gone from 249 lbs on July 16th to 199 lbs on November 20, which is a loss of about 2.7 lbs/week. I eat between 1500 calories and 1900 calories most days and I walk or run at least 4miles, 3-4 times a week (less now that it's winter). I've run a 5-mile race and two 5Ks since September. Both eating and exercise have become pretty much habit. I am starting cross training to build up muscle. I'm having to buy new clothes all the time. Here's hoping I can maintain the initiative AND not lose much more.
