Mondawg I can't wait to see you pics once they are approved, I read your story and it really hit home, not that I have weight to loose but 3kgs would be nice, but the transformation is amazing. I also read your journal. Are you exercising now and what does a typical day look like?
I just started walking again. we have a great beach in my town that has a 2.5 mile loop. I am doing 2 loops 4-5 times a week. I LOVE being outdoors-the beach opens at sunrise and closes at sunset-I have been going in the early evening these days. I wake up early (around 5-6am) and work until 1pm. I have steak for lunch and then work some more. I recently started taking naps in the afternoon for about an hour. I have been taking classes in the evenings, so the nap allows me to have 2 full days in one without getting sick or exhausted. I have more meat for dinner with veggies. I make a lot of roasts as they last me for a few meals and taste great even when cold! I have been getting to sleep between 10-12 at night. The naps and the protein are hugely sustaining for me.
Mondawg, what ballet videos will you be doing? I've been lifting heavy for the last few months and decided to do something different, so will be doing some ballet videos in June as well. I'm always looking for recommendations!
mommymd, I see *big* changes between months 3 and 7! As trekfan said, your face is slimmer and your tummy is flatter. Also, where your arm meets your torso is slimmer (great for upcoming summer weather!). It's amazing how much change can happen with very little (or no) weight loss, isn't it?
I didn't think I'd be posting in the success thread any time soon, but here I am.
I'm posting a progress photo. The second was taken approximately 15-20 days after the first photo (!!).
I've deflated from 186 lbs to ~178.5 lbs. I wanted to post because it doesn't look like major weight loss, but I just look so much less "swollen" that I thought it'd be worth sharing. This is a 7.5 lbs difference (I'm 5'10"):
Diet: No dairy or nuts besides Kerrygold. No drinking calories, protein shakes, extra sauces, etc. Haven't been worrying about carbs (mmm potatoes). Eating low calorie.
Workouts have been walking, maybe 4-5 times a week. I've only recently started a weightlifting regimen and sprinting to keep pushing.
