Before (Jan 3, 2011)
So...the last time I posted, I was discussing the cleanse that I was doing. Well...it went fine. At the very LEAST it got me motivated to get back on my Clean Eating and Exercising wagon. I would like to thank the Cleanse people...they make a good product. If you aren interested in the product information please leave a comment and I will get it to you.
In January I started a program that has meabsolutely ECSTATIC. I have been on it for 8 weeks and have lost 15.8 lbs of FAT and 13.25 inches. It has given me the OOMPH I needed to get my act together. I made fabulous progress and am STILL dedicated to the program. Which is absolutely amazing to me! I usually never finish anything! I stuck to it thru the WHOLE 8 weeks even though I had some trying times--I was sick for a whole week, my hubby was home for 5 days (he's an OTR truck driver, I see him about every 8 weeks or so)
These can be things that usually dump me on my ass. I persevered and made it thru.
The program is Fabulous Fatloss by Josh Tapp. I will get a link up for you soon, but you should be able to google him and find the programs.
Some things that kept me on track: I planned my meals for the whole week, shopped, cooked, and packaged them up on Sundays. I wrote out some short term goals: which btw...I blew out of the water! I kept track of all my measurements--the most motivating thing of all. I also bought a notebook and cut out pictures, articles, and words that motivated me. This book acts as my "vision board" I read it every day and add to it as I see things that move me.
I am still a very BIG little girl. I'm still only 5'2 and if you went by the scale I am probably in the morbidly obese range (215) HOWEVER!!!!! One thing I learned--if I only had a scale to track my progress I wouldn't have seen the progress and would have been so depressed for only losing 5 scale lbs. If you don't already know this: THE SCALE LIES LIKE A DOG!!!! Throw it out!!! I used calipers for BF, I measured body parts, I took pics. These 3 things tell the whole story.
So now I have a new goal. My daughter is getting married in September. We're going on a cruise. So I have to get myself in gear! I want to wear a nice dress. I will report my journey weekly and you can cheer me on! LOL!!!
