Start Weight:(21 Mar 12) 132.0 lb
Current Weight:(27 Mar 12) 132.0 lb
Goal Weight:118.0 lb
following: low calorie diet
performance: gaining 1.8 lb a week

I am a 33 year old mother of 2. I have tried various methods to get down to my desired weight and size. I typically play tennis 4-5 times a week and recently introduced weight training to my routine and have been impressed by the results. An injury has kept me at home and that is how my weight crept back up a bit.

I am quite happy with my body at about 136 but I have never been able to push through to that last 5lbs. My desired bodyfat is about 15% and I am currently 19%.

Since alcohol is my vice, I thought the fat flush plan would be a great way to clean up my body. I like it's cleansing premise and I think my liver will thank me. I don't eat too differently than the plan suggests but it will make sure I stay hydrated and the cranberry water battling cellulite is what sold me on the plan!

Here we go!

How lovely it is to start a New Year without a Resolution List that starts with WEIGHT LOSS!

I started fatsecret at 143lbs, 19%bodyfat, size TIGHT 6. I set a new weight loss goal recently SO I am now 127lbs, 14.3% bodyfat, a size 3/4.

HERE IS HOW I DID IT!!


My body, when left alone, loves to camp out at 138-142. Because I carry weight pretty evenly...it isn't an ungodly weight. Now that I have finally broken through the 135-133 barrier and I am in the 120's...something I didn't think I could healthily do....I can't imagine going back to the weight I have spent most of my life.

I have enough lean muscle to slack off without that huge fluxuation of water weight that sent me obsessively weighing myself and punishing myself with guilt, etc. I also see that I can tighten up even more and get that body fat lower...it just takes dedication. Running...is a MIRACLE exercise for fat loss. This comes from a woman who HATED running. I played basketball all my life and just didn't understand why anyone would want to run without makin git a game with a ball and an opponent...how utterly BORING! Now I can't imagine a week without running 5-6 days.

Weight lifting has also pushed me over the plateau. T-Tapp was a wonderful first start in building lean body mass. It is a fabulous workout. I actually do many moves in between sets. T-Tapp only took me so far...about 17%bodyfat. A very simple weight lifting routine of 2 exercises for bi's, 2 for tri's, 2 for abs, 2 for front of legs and 2 for the back, 2 for shoulders, and 2 for chest...sprinkled throughout 3 days during the week pushed me to the 16%bodyfat range. Doing less reps and working on more weight is where I am now and I am at 14.3% and still pushing for a little more.

Lastly, the eating tactic that finally worked for me was eating right but more importantly, just eating less. I consciously just started putting less on my plate...I wasn't hungry...I didn't need that plate full like I was trained to think was a meal. If I was hungry...my favorite snack was and IS sliced red bell pepper wrapped in lean turkey breast from Costco. AND a golden remedy for water retention and staying hydrated is the cran water from the fat flush plan. 8oz of pure cranberry in a 64oz container filling the rest with water. I don't even have PMS fat days anymore.

SO THAT is what works for me. I hope it helps some of you also reach your goal.

I am celebrating with a boob job tomorrow. I lost them breastfeeding 2 children and I want them back! lol! I think I earned it!


In the wise words of Teresa Tapp, "YES YOU CAN!"

I had wine the last two nights and STILL lost weight...perhaps slower than I would have otherwise but it's a nice experiment.
