following: The South Beach Diet
I am 36. Have struggled with weight gain since birth (at least it feels that way !) I chose to start the South Beach Diet , and did so as of January 2, 2007.(starting weight 246lbs) I also decided to begin a exercise program in conjunction with the diet. I started walking for 30 min at lunch time at least 3 days a week and did either at least 30 min on eliptical or a "firm" workout tape each night. Now I am up to about 60 min workouts everyday and enjoy jogging (3mi) or biking (5mi). Phase I of SBD was difficult at first, but after getting all the crap out of my system I feel GREAT !!!!! My first goal was 180....have passed that now....then was 160..now not sure if I should shoot for 150 or not..but Ive agreed to listen to my body and see where it wants to naturally plateau.
Picture has me on RIGHT. My friend and I at a concert.
Im willing to help anyone who wants help...I know I couldnt have been as successful as I have been without the help and support of others, especially those Ive met here on Fatsecret !!!!!!
If I can do it....you can too !!!!!!!!!!!
~Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't....I give myself reasons why I CAN !!!!!
