Disney Weight Loss Goal: Deadline: October

Sunday, July 24, 2011


I'm still ticking away! sorry I haven't blogged much but it's been a very busy time and I've been focusing slot on diet and exercise, but I haven't had time to process it.

So what have I been up to? Where am I at? Well, strangely enough I'm at my new lowest weight, 193.6 lbs!!! I'm on day 14 of the 30 DS. I've also changed my diet up a bit.

Diet info first. It's not a huge change, but I think it needed adjusting. I was doing low carb- although not super well. Let's be honest, I don't do any diet super well. I've been reading a book called Healthy Living God's Way. There's seven steps, and I just finished reading the section on food. It was nothing shocking - it said to eat real wholesome foods and cut out the junk. But with relation to dieting, she broke it down saying that your plate should be half veggies/fruit, 1/4 carbs - only twice a day, and 1/4 protein, only once a day. I think visualizing that is helping me. I've been striving for more wholesome foods anyways and it's not a difficult transition. Although I will probably add protein into my snacks. Not sure if this is explaining the recent weight loss? The first real difference was I was adding more fruit into my diet and a little bread. Fruit is making this much easier!!!

So where am I at? You might recall me discussing my ideal plan, in a perfect world. My goal for July was to get below 190 lbs. I was struggling slot just a week ago but now things are turning around and I'm in disbelief. Could I actually reach my goal?!?! I'm going to give it my best shot!!! I can't wait to see how this week goes! I'm determined to follow this diet. I have my salad greens cleaned and ready to go. I have veggies and cheese cut up to go with my new found love : spinach & artichoke hummus!
