Yep, If I say it it will happen! 12 years ago I lost 60 pounds and kept it off for 10 years. Two years ago I started a stressful nursing career and everything seemed to sliiiide! I have gained 20 pounds and I am dedicated to losing it! I was a strict low carber and somehow I decided that I could just have a few and now I am a high-carber looking to get back to that low carb lifestyle. It is the only thing that works for me! Moderation with the carbs does not work for me!! Now I am all about the Fat Resistance Diet and will be doing Jillian Micheal's Making the Cut October 26 2008.

Ok here are my 30 day MTC results! I had to post them now even though I still have 2 weeks to go, but I have completed the 30 days. I think they are really great results!

start 4weeks difference Peaking
10/26 11/26 12/07/08
weight 130 124 6lbs 121
bust 36.5 35.5 1 same
chest 32 30.25 1.75 30
waist 30 27.5 2.5 26.5
hips 38 35.75 2.25 35.5
rt thigh 21.25 18.5 2.75 18
lt thigh 20 18.25 1.75 18
rt arm 12 10.5 1.5 same
lt arm 12 10.5 1.5 same

Total inches lost!! 16.5!!!!!!!!!!

I can not believe it! The pounds mean nothing compared to the inches lost!

(EDIT 12/07/08: I did the peaking thing in the back of Making The Cut and I did lose 6.5 pounds because in week five I gained 3.5 pounds inexplicably! This journey with Making the Cut has been both euphoric and deeply disappointing. I must keep on. I must keep working towards my goal. I will not quit I will not give in!)

I think my husband will be please because when he left in June I was around 132 pounds!

My goal is to look great in my bikinis while my husband and I sail around the world starting June 2010!! Our website is We are making a DVD series about our adventures. Check it out!

Ok, so I did MTC and I made it through the holidays losing and gaining only 3 pounds so I feel successful. I went down to 117.2 and it felt great!

My mini 2009 goal is to lose 1 pound a week and reach my goal weight on March 15th!!

    Hey girl! Thanks for your note on my page! It's so good to have you back! I've missed your enthusiasm.

    This month is super busy for me so my time in here will be sporadic. I gained a little fat the last couple weeks, but I'm working on taking it off.

    You look fabuuuulous! Stay in touch, my friend! emoticon
