Jump Starting My Diet Again
Monday, November 30, 2009
Ok, so I have a little over 6 months until the wedding. I tried on my wedding dress in a size 10 last weekend and it 'fit', but with absolutely no room to spare. I've lost 5 pounds and have managed to keep it off since October, but thats just not going to cut it. I've definitely hit a annoying plateau.
Soo...I'm jump starting my diet with a low carbohydrate plan. I know its not really 'healthy' but neither is being over weight either. I'm going to consume 30- Carbs a day. My goal is to lose 2 pounds this week, and 1 pound a week until I reach my goal weight of 150. (should be middle March)
I'm still going to exercise, and drink my 8+ cups of water a day. My carbs should be good carbs from fruits and veggies.
I'm going to Jamaica in 6 months. I've GOT to look good. I'm 165 right now, and though I don't consider myself obese or fat, I'm overweight and significantly over my ideal weight.
A good thing that has happened over the past couple of months, is I've changed to a healthier eating habit. I eat fast food maybe once a month, and try to avoid desserts. I've completely stopped drinking sodas. I focus more on the fruit and veggies than I ever have before.
Wish me luck! I don't plan to make this a lifestyles, but a jump start to boost confidence and loose the weight before my wedding.
