Start Your Diet Today!

Did great today!

I did 20 min on the elliptical!!!!!  This is a far cry from the 4 min I started off with.  I also walked 10 min w/my son tonight, so I did well with the exercises.  I did pretty well with eating.  My only downfall was a piece of quiche.  It bit me in the butt though because I got sick after eating it.  I still have about 400 calories left to eat today, so I’ll make sure it’s high in protein to even things out for the day.

I’m so happy because I bought some new clothes today.  I’m kind of between sizes right now.  At Lane Bryant I can wear about a 14 top though it’s a little tight.  On the bottom I can wear a size 18 but it’s a little big, a size 16 is good, but a size 14 fits but is still a little snug.  So I didn’t buy any pants because I’d really like to get closer to a size 14 which is my target size. 

It’s amazing to be so close to my target size.   I have 28 more lbs to go.  My wish is that I lose it in my belly and legs because that’s where I need it the most.  I keep reading about walking being good for an “overall” loss, so let’s hope it works!  Occassionally I’ve been stretching and contracting my muscles in my belling trying to tone those muscles under the fat and strive for a leaner look.  I don’t want to be negative but I think my belly will be a constant source of frustration for me, but I’m just so thrilled to be losing weight I’m not letting it get me down.

    Belly fat is my problem too. My belly does NOT reflect how hard I have worked to get this weight off. Sometimes it makes me sad, but in the right clothes it is ok. It is certainly better than I used to look! Prevention magazine talks about monounsaturated fats to speed up belly fat loss. I don’t know if it is true, but I do eat a tablespoon of peanut butter a day as well as some almonds or sunflower seeds if I have room in my calories for it. Can’t hurt. Congrats on the elliptical! that is great improvement! :D

    Hi getupnow. I love PB so I think I’ll start eating a spoonful a day too! Thanks for the advice. Too bad that belly is always the last thing to go. I know we’ll both look a lot better no matter if those bellies go away or not. More important, we’ll be healthier! Good luck to you!
