I can't join until at least Friday, so I'll have to go a few days longer than you - but I'm totally up for it.
My plan will look something (although perhaps not totally) like this:
First 17 days:
Pay attention to food ONLY.
Second 17 day cycle:
Add (at least) 2 days of exercise no fewer than 15 minutes per day.
Third 17 day cycle:
Add another 2 days of exercise no fewer than 15 minutes per day.
Fourth 17 day cycle:
Drop down to 2 days of exercise but bump up the time to 30 minutes each.
Fifth 17 day cycle:
Add another 2 days of exercise at 30 minutes each.
This leaves me on November 19. This is a very significant day for me. It will mark 2 years since I suffered a massive pulmonary embolism that almost killed me. And 2 years since I began to put more and more thinking into my weight and really began wishing it would go down.
I plan to focus more on food rather than exercise, as I do believe the ratio is more what you eat than what you burn. I will be trying to stick to the food in the book as close as possible. And if I can't, then at least within the guidelines.
Hopefully, I can stick to this.
