So, I've been tryin to lose weight more or less haphazardly for the past 6 years. THe only time I've lost more than 5 pounds was when I was working out with a trainer twice a week. I did aerobics for 1 hour, 6 days a week and lifted weights with my trainer twice a week. and STILL, I ONLY LOST 15 POUNDS! I mean, what's up with that. AND I was STARVING! Well, I have finally totally HAD it with being fat and sluggish. At 41, it's only going to get harder to lose weight. So I'm going to do it NOW! I've decided to to the Body for Life Challenge because it makes sense to me, I won't starve and I won't be spending half my waking hours working out. As a physical therapist, the theories behind this fat loss plan make sense to me. I've already lost 2 pounds in 3 days! Go Me!!!!
Anyway, Here is my before photo. In 24 weeks, if I'm brave, I'll actually post an after photo. ( NOT in a BIKINI, though!- no one needs to see THAT no matter how skinny I get!)
Now off to the little girl's room for the 231st time today. This plan has me drinking LOTS of water!
